Dura Trac farrowing floors are designed for traction and the prevention of flooring related injuries. In addition, all Dura Trac metal flooring is completely plastisol (polyvinyl) coated. This coating ensures the floors will never be any colder than the temperature in the room. Also, the mesh allows for urine and feces to filter through to the gutter below. Therefore, Dura Trac floors are quick and easy to clean which aides in minimizing bacteria buildup.
The Dura Trac Clearspan Farrow floor is entirely self-supported, therefore, no additional support is necessary. It features a two-level construction. Not only does the 1-inch center rise reduce crushing, but it also allows the newborns easier access to underside nipples. In addition, the 24-inch wide center sow area is wide enough for the sow, but not so wide to lose the advantage of the raised center. Furthermore, the wear areas are kept small and replaceable for minimal maintenance costs. As an example, the image below shows the Clearspan Farrow Complete. This floor includes the basic unit, a welded rod sow section, and a Dura Saver feed saver. Additionally, the Clearspan legs are a great option for those who want the flooring elevated higher above the alleyway.
Keep your sows cool on durable cast iron
Cast iron sow sections are 24 inches wide and available in 42-in and 48-in lengths. They are set between two Clearspan creep side floors. While the cast iron will keep the sow cool, the plastisol-coated expanded metal creep sides will keep piglets warm and comfortable.
Our Dura Trac Original Farrowing flooring is made to use with your supports. It works great for not just new building, but also for replacement flooring. Likewise, custom options such as perimeter rod, notching, and holes are available to fit your needs. When desired, a Dura Saver feed saver bolts on easily from the top.
Healthy sows and increased weaning weights mean a larger profit.
The Dura Trac Clearspan Creep Side with a cast-iron center comes completely self-supported. Furthermore, the durable cast iron center keeps the sow cooler and more comfortable. Convenient options are also available to customize the floor to your needs. Such options include a heat plate, notches, pad positioners, solid plates, mounting tabs, and feet.
