Our composite slats for pigs are robust and can therefore be used in both farrowing and piglet houses. The composite stable gratings are acid-resistant, liquid-tight and are a more fire-safe (Bfl-S1) alternative to plastic polypropylene gratings. Our composite gratings can be supplied in standard sizes as well as custom-made.
Composite gratings are produced with thermosetting synthetic polymers. Thermosets have the unique property that they remain hard when heated and do not melt. This makes composite gratings a more fire-safe (Bfl-S1) alternative than plastic polypropylene gratings. Because there is steel reinforcement in the gratings, our composite gratings can also be used as self-supporting gratings.
The grids are made using a compression molding process, this compression molding process means that the lower and upper mold are preheated to approximately 170 degrees, after which the reinforcement steel and the composite paste are placed in the lower mold. The upper mold is now placed on the lower mold and the molds are pressed together with approximately 500 tons by hydraulic presses for 10 minutes.
Composite grids are dirt-resistant and easy to clean. This creates a hygienic surface. The embossed relief offers excellent grip and forms a rougher surface, which benefits animal welfare and claw health.
