Dura-Tuff's NURSERY FLOOR SYSTEM provides the combination of high impact, wear resistant plastic flooring with rust and corrosion proof fiberglass beam to create clean, comfortable, long lasting flooring for your pigs.
swine flooring is made out of high grade virgin polypropylene
material. This makes Dura-Tuff"s wear and impact resistance
superior to other plastic floors.
solid plastic construction resists bacteria build up and sheds
Plastic swine floor does not rob pigs of
body heat. University studies indicate pigs on plastic floor
versus metal floor have shown a 15% improvement in their
feed to gain ratio due to less stress.
new 24" x 24" (610mm x 610mm) & 18" x
24" (458mm x 610mm) floor have 7/16" (11mm) openings
for better manure filtration. Alternate ribs are elevated.
This design feature prevents manure from being pushed to the
corners, which can cause premature corrosion on the steel penning.
Our high/low rib design provides superior
traction even when wet.
Our interlocking system creates a 1/4" (7mm)
opening at the end of the floor where it connects to the
next floor and a 1/4" (7mm) gap on the sides. These
design features are superior to floors which fit tight on
the ends and sides. Tight fitting floors create areas where
manure can build up making it harder to clean.
Plastic swine floor can be supported by
our corrosion/rust proof fiberglass beams or 1/4" (7mm)
galvanized steel beams.
Dura-Tuff's FARROWING FLOOR SYSTEM offers the combination of cast iron sow floor (raised or flat), and plastic creep floor all on a fiberglass support system. The cool surface for the sow and warm surface for the piglets provides a comfortable surface for both, reduces the crush factor, and improves your mortality rate.
Our cast iron sow center provides
a cool surface for the sow while the plastic creep area provides
a warm surface for the piglets. This combination will keep
the piglets on the warm plastic surface and reduce the crush
ACCESS TO TEATS:
Our raised sow center provides
a better access to teats for nursing. The cast iron is raised
1" (26mm) which puts the teats in the optimal position
while the piglets stay safe in the creep area.

Dura-Tuff plastic creep floor can also
be used with Dura-Tuff Plastic Sow Floor Tri-Bar®, woven
wire, and coated wire sow centers.
Dura-Lock Anchoring Systemis The ultimate system to quickly attach penning and equipment to concrete slats.
Dura-Lock allows you to bolt penning and
equipment down from the top with no
protruding bolt to injure animals. Dura-Lock also
eliminates the need to cut
and grind off bolts.
Dura-Lock can be installed as easily as sliding it in
the slot opening, turning
and pulling the lock into place. Dura-Lock requires a
one-inch wide opening for
inserting the lock through the top. If you are unable to insert from the
you can insert from the bottom. A 3/8” hole or opening would be required
for the bolt. Don't over tighten; hand tightening is all that is
secure the bolt. Tool setting must not exceed 35-foot pounds of torque.
Dura-Lock is made out of Dupont Super-Tuff Nylon
providing superior impact and
Dura-Lock is designed with a hex nut embedded inside
the Dupont Super-Tuff Nylon.
Each Dura-Lock includes a 3/8" x 4" stainless steel
bolt and washer. Dura-Lock Fasteners are conveniently packaged and sold
in quantities of 100.
**Dura-Lock has been designed for concrete slat
application and may not be appropriate
for use in all other applications.
