    DURA-SLAT Poultry Flooring System

    Dura-Slat poultry slats are the best option when compared to wood and wire slats in poultry breeder houses. We offer 4′ and 5′ sizes that provide multiple options to fit your slat needs and reduce cost. This flooring is made from high impact, wear resistant polypropylene plastic. It is rot / corrosion proof, will outlast wood slats and can cut cleaning time in half. DURA-SLAT features a non-porous, smooth surface with 1.1″ X 1.1″ openings that resist micro-organism build-up and shed waste easily.

    Our solid plastic construction reduces foot pad problems, leg problems, and breast blisters experienced with wood slats. It has been proven that eggs laid on square openings, regardless of surface area, were significantly cleaner than eggs laid on wooden slats. The primary contamination of hatching eggs is caused by contact with dirty sources. Eggs laid on plastic have less surface microorganisms than those laid on wood slats.

    • Company Information

    • Product Questions

    Q. What is the advantage of using Plastic flooring instead of using wood?


    A. It has been proven to that eggs laid on square openings, regardless of surface area – like the DURA-SLAT, were significantly cleaner than eggs laid on wooden slats. Eggs laid on plastic had significantly less surface microorganisms than those laid on wood slats. The primary source of contamination of hatching eggs is contact with dirty sources. Our non-porous smooth surface and 1.1″ x 1.1″ openings can cut cleaning time in half compared to wood slats. The larger openings also allow the birds to continually work the manure though the openings to maintain a clean environment. DURA-SLAT reduces foot pad problems, leg problems, and breast blisters experienced with wood slats. It will easily outlast wood slats.


    Q. What is the difference between overlapping and non-overlapping flooring?


    A. The 2’ x 4’ Overlapping floor interlocks along the 4’ sides as well as has an overlap connection on the 2’ ends allowing for the use of just one support where this style panel meets end to end. The 2’ x 4’ Non-Overlapping flooring just interlocks along the 4’ sides and is flush or “flat” along the 2’ end. This style is ideal for designing a flooring section that is 4’ wide.


    Q. What is the height of the flooring?


    A. Depending on the style of poultry flooring, the heights or thicknesses range from .5” – 1.125”


    Q. Can you cut Dura-Slat into smaller pieces and still use them together?


    A. Dura-Slat panels can be cut with any tool that can cut wood and depending on the style and the size of the cut piece can still be used.


    Q. Can the flooring handle the weight of humans?


    A. The poultry flooring, when properly supported, can support the weight of the average person.
