Steel tri-bar slat floor panel

This is a type of slat flooring grate for pig housing. It is made of welded rolled-steel bars (usually triangular) and is lighter than the more common cast iron slatted floor sections. It is often used for farrowing sows while cast iron grates are used for piglets (warmer). You can see an explanation on the website below

Example sentence(s):
  • The V-shaped bars of the Nooyen steel Tri-Bar slatted floors ensure a perfect drain of manure
