Slat gap covers

Investment in improving the existing slatted floors

Tightened requirements regarding the environment and animal welfare

The agricultural production of pigs within the EU as well as in many other countries around the world is experiencing an increased amount of restrictions from animal welfare and environmentally organizations. These rules are in many cases set forth by the local governments. To comply with these rules many farmers, especially pig farmers, have to invest in upgrading their slatted concrete floors.

We have helped many pig producers to comply with the stricter regulations

The Danish company bjd in Ribe has since 2013 produced and delivered Slat Gap Covers to pig farmers all over Europe, as well as many overseas countries. With these special invented Slat Gap Covers, which can be placed directly in the gaps in the concrete floor, practically without any use of tools other than a rubber mallet, many pig farmers have been able to comply with the new rules, without having to invest a lot of money. The alternative to this solution is to install a brand new and very expensive concrete floor.
