New-Style Plastic Flooring Forces Manure Through Slots
"It's the best slotted floor on the market," says Terry Johnson, manufacturer of a new-style flooring with specially slotted valleys that direct waste downward instead of al-lowing it to spread across the surface of the floor.
"EverClean" flooring is made of a non-stick plastic that's stronger, more shatter-resistant, and less temperature sensitive than ordinary plastic, according to Johnson.
The slots in the flooring have raised edges that stop manure from spreading side-ways so it's forced down through the slots. The raised edges also provide more traction for animals, he adds.
Designed primarily for nurseries, EverClean flooring sells for $10 per 16 by 24-in. panel.
