Hog Slat manufactures our blue plastic flooring for pigs with a high-tech injection molding process using virgin quality polypropylene copolymer to create a durable, long-lasting plastic flooring solution for nursery pigs and farrowing barn installations. Our plastic swine flooring is available in multiple grid configurations and sizes that will adapt to any building scheme, whether it is a new construction or barn remodeling project.
- Hog Slat plastic flooring panels are designed to interlock with each other, forming a durable, stable flooring solution for nursery and farrowing barn installations. Plastic pig flooring is more thermally conductive than traditional metal flooring, making it easier and more affordable to provide a warmer, comfortable environment for young pigs
- Plastic flooring is easily power-washed and sanitized between pig groups, allowing producers to create the best possible starting environment for young pigs with less developed immune systems than older pigs
- Our DUO beam supports and optional support legs are adaptable to provide a sturdy support for our interlocking plastic flooring in any design situation
Hog Slat blue Chess Nursery flooring is available in many different sizes and is designed to interlock along our DUO support beams to create complete pit-spanning flooring solutions for weaned pigs.
- Self-cleaning, 3/8” wide slots arranged in a multi-direction pattern give nursery pigs optimum traction while allowing animals wastes to easily pass through, maintaining cleanliness
- Sturdy design supports wider spans, reducing support beam costs
- Suitable for pigs up to 130 pounds
