TriDek Metal Flooring

TriDek Flooring

Hog Slat galvanized triangular bar (TriDEK) flooring system is a great metal flooring option for nursery pig and farrowing barn applications. TriDEK floors are manufactured from rolled steel rod that has a tensile strength of 80,000 psi and hardness of 95 Rb. After being cut to length, the finished rolled TriDEK rods are then resistance welded to a 13/32” diameter cross rod. Hog Slat is the only manufacturer to offer resistance welded metal flooring solutions for the swine industry.

Resistance Welded

  • Resistance welded TriDEK floors have an average weld strength of 7,500+ pounds, where traditional MIG welded floors average 5,500 pounds
  • Resistance welding produces superior weld consistency and strength compared to MIG welded metal flooring
  • Triangle bar shape and consistent resistance welded joints make TriDEK the cleanest metal pig flooring on the market today

TriDEK Flooring Options

TriDEK metal flooring sections are available in many different sizes and designs to provide durable floor solutions in both nursery and farrowing barn facilities.

Hog Slat TriDEK metal farrowing floor is available with traction breaks and n-slip grip indentions that provide variation in the flooring surface to give sows extra support when standing up or laying down.Hog Slat TriDEK metal farrowing floor is available with traction breaks and n-slip grip indentions that provide variation in the flooring surface to give sows extra support when standing up or laying down.

Self-Supported

Self-supported TriDEK floors have a truss system that eliminates the need for floor frames or other support methods. Self-supported TriDEK flooring can span up to 12’ openings without additional support.

Non-Supported

Non-supported TriDEK flooring does not have a truss system and must be supported with beams or frames.

Both self-supported and non-supported TriDEK flooring panels are available with these finished options:

Traction Breaks

  • 5” wide by 3/8” deep indentions in the flooring help support the sow while standing and sitting
  • Traction breaks create a variation in the flooring surface to reduce slippage and possible injury to the sow
  • TriDEK flooring is available in both support styles, with or without traction breaks installed
  • Traction breaks are not used in TriDEK nursery flooring applications

No-Slip Grip Indentions

  • .5” x .025” indentions spaced every 5/16” on TriDEK flooring surface
  • Grip indentions provide additional traction to support sow footing
  • No-slip is primarily used in farrowing rooms
  • No-slip grip indentions are optional on all TriDEK flooring styles

Cast & TriDEK Farrowing Floor Combo

Cast iron center sections help keep the sow cool and are supported by TriDEK creep flooring sections to complete the farrowing crate floor assembly.Cast iron center sections help keep the sow cool and are supported by TriDEK creep flooring sections to complete the farrowing crate floor assembly.

Our cast iron and TriDEK farrowing floor combination creates a sturdy, comfortable environment for sows; which need to be kept cool, and piglets that need to be kept warm and clean as they begin to grow.

  • A two-piece cast iron center section eliminates multiple joints in the flooring underneath a sow
  • Sows cannot remove either cast flooring section because her weight is always present on both sections
  • Self-supporting galvanized TriDEK creep sections lock the two-piece cast into a stable farrowing platform
  • TriDEK creep flooring provides sure footing for growing pigs and stays cleaner than other flooring options on the market

TriDEK Floor Patches

TriDEK floor patches allow pork producers to cut out worn wire flooring sections and quickly replace them by dropping in a TriDEK flooring patch. TriDEK flooring patches are easier to install than other manufacturers’ patches and stay cleaner than wire or cast iron.

Worn flooring can be patches in four easy steps:

  1. Cut out the section of damaged wire along floor frame supports
  2. Insert TriDEK patch into the floor, catching the Z-hooks under the frame support in the front of the cut out
  3. Pressing the TriDEK patch down locks the Z-hooks on the support without additional fasteners
  4. Farrowing crate leg anchor plates hold the TriDEK patch in place

TriDEK floor patches are available in a variety of sizes and widths to replace worn flooring in most common-sized farrowing pen setups. Custom sizes are also available to match your exact flooring layout.

TriDEK metal flooring is available with optional “no-slip grip” indentions on the walking surface to provide additional traction for young pigsTriDEK flooring has a triangular shape that makes it easier to clean. TriDEK is normally used in farrowing and nursery pens, but can also be used as perimeter flooring spanning pit openings. (Shown: TriDEK flooring is installed in this farrowing barn walkway, and has been cut-out to provide a convenient pit access area.) Hog Slat cast iron farrowing floor sections are manufactured from ductile iron for increased strength compared to “grey” cast metal. The alternating “no-slip” openings provide improved traction and the smoothly rounded 25/64” (10mm) openings reduce chances for injury and easily allow animal wastes to pass through.Hog Slat TriDEK farrowing floor patches can be used to replace worn sections of older farrowing floors quickly and easily. TriDEK floor patches are available in a variety of sizes to fit various style floor support frames.
