Poultry Breeder Slat Flooring
Plastic slats last longer than wood, are moisture resistant and easier to clean, and can reduce foot pad and leg problems.
Agri of Virginia offers their A-V Plastic poultry slats. Designed with a unique “Interlock” system, A-V slats come in either 18″ X 36″ or 24″ X 48″ panels. Made with injection molded polypropylene, they are available in either black or white. They also come with reinforced, pre-molded screw holes for quick installation.
The Dura-Slat line from Southwest Agri-Plastics come with Bio-Pruf, their proprietary anti-bacterial additive. They come in both overlap and non-overlap configurations in 24″ X 48″ panels.
Old wood Slats
DURA-SLAT is made from high impact, wear resistant polypropylene plastic designed to replace wood and wire slats in poultry breeder houses.
Our non-porous smooth surface and 1.1″ x 1.1″ openings can cut cleaning time in half compared to wood slats. The large openings also allow the birds to continually work the manure though the openings to maintain a clean environment.
It has been proven to that eggs laid on square openings, regardless of surface area – like the DURA-SLAT, were significantly cleaner than eggs laid on wooden slats. Eggs laid on plastic had significantly less surface microorganisms than those laid on wood slats. The primary source of contamination of hatching eggs is contact with dirty sources.
DURA-SLAT is made out of high-impact polypropylene material providing superior impact and wear resistance.
Our solid plastic construction is rot/corrosion proof, resists microorganisms build up and sheds waste easily.
DURA-SLAT reduces foot pad problems, leg problems, and breast blisters experienced with wood slats. It will easily outlast wood slats.
Most plastic poultry floors are manufactured outside the United States. We manufacture in Dallas, TX and have over 40 years of experience in manufacturing plastic products for the agricultural industry. We manufacture the best quality products at the best price.
