Q: How do Mayo slat mats compare to rubber slat mats?
They will outperform them in every way. The thermal value of EVA is much higher than rubber therefore the cattle thrive better on it & because it is not prone to degradation by “perishing” it will significantly outlast rubber.
Strength and Stability
The Mayo Slat Mat is a high-grade high-density closed cell foam formulation ensuring its super strength & stability.
The Slat Mat maintains a good degree of softness & excellent thermal values – much greater than ordinary rubber.
A tough mat for a tough job 24/7
Extreme durability while maintaining comfort & warmth
Finish cattle up to 6 weeks faster – significant saving in feed etc.
Reduction in incidents of lameness
Custom fit on site to fit over the slats
100% non-absorbent – cannot harbour bacteria
100% Non Absorbent
The Mayo Cow Comfort Slat Mat will aid cleanliness in the environment as the material is 100% non-absorbent so cannot harbour any bacteria. As the mats are custom cut on site, they perfectly fit over the slats so any waste will be deposited through the slats into the tank as required.
The thermal value of the mats is dramatically increased in comparison to those of rubber. This means the cattle thrive better on it. Also, because it is not prone to degrading by perishing it will significantly outlast rubber.
Mayo Slat Mats are generally held in place with a special bracket which drops into the slat slot & tightens down into the surface. They are fitted with sporadic concrete fillets which guides any expansion of the mats forward. There may be some maintenance in terms of trimming the mats dependent on usage before they are fully settled into position.
