StepRight Rubber Flooring : Leading the way to ultimate cow comfort and productivity

As they take pressure off hooves and legs, StepRight Rubber Flooring is particularly advantageous in areas where cows spend a lot of time. For example, our mats are ideal for holding areas, milking parlours, alleys and scraper lanes where they help increase cow comfort.

StepRight rubber mats have a rough, slip-resistant surface providing sufficient friction for safe movement as well as maximum traction for greatly improved cow traffic in the barn. In fact, studies and tests have proved that cows walk faster and slip much less on rubber floors. Hoof health is globally enhanced when placing rubber mats in appropriate areas.

StepRight is available in 2 models: StepRight CX and StepRight CX Diamond for a better anti-slip surface thanks to its specific design. StepRight mats are composed of (unpressed) vulcanized rubber which gives them thermal expansion capability. (This expansion prevents the mats from warping over time. To make thermal expansion possible, the mats should be installed leaving a space of 3 cm from the walls.)

Interlocking mats (puzzle system). Dimensions: 113 x 177 cm, with a thickness of 19 mm (23 mm in total, considering the "studs" which raise the floor mats slightly for better evacuation of liquids).
