Enhancing Livestock Comfort & Welfare

Our reinforced design has a high-grip profile and comes with a 5-year warranty.

This patented product has an easy-to-fit rubber wedge underside and is made from the highest quality natural rubber compound.

Our slatted rubber floor covering has been designed to fit old and new concrete slats.
