Cattle slats and solid covers

These come in a range of formats, each developed to meet a precise need. All are available in standard, customised and bespoke options and are all manufactured under the strictest quality control procedures.

Diagonal slats

Our diagonal cattle slats are designed to fit directly over our 1000mm wide channels. They are the ideal solution for passageways, across the end of buildings, doorways or any scraped passage areas.

The angle of the slats allows the muck to easily cut away whichever way the scraper passes over leaving a clean surface. This design of slat must be supported along the long sides – it is not suitable for use over a wide span.

  • Automatic scraping slat
  • Class leading 8 and 12 tonne axle load
  • Dry cast manufacture
  • Non-slip finish
  • Cattle hoof friendly
  • Designed to BS5502 part 50 & BS8110
  • 50Kn high strength concrete

Parallel cattle slat

Diagonal race slat

Our cattle race slats are designed to BS5502 and BS 8110. We manufacture them using high-strength dry-cast concrete, making them extremely strong and durable, with a non-slip brush finish.

Concrete slats are cheaper than the steel alternative and are much kinder to the hooves of your cattle. They are designed to run over our 730mm wide cattle race channels. 950mm is the ideal width to run between race fences. Diagonal slats must be supported along the long length.

  • Non-slip finish
  • Cattle hoof friendly
  • Dry cast manufacture
  • 150mm thick cow loading only
  • 50Kn high strength concrete
  • Ideal width for cattle race
