With a history in the farming community, Harrington’s have produced high quality cattle slats for over 30 years. Over the years, our slats are constantly upgraded, designed for a longer lifespan and to wear well under constant use.
Harringtons CE Certified cattle slats are approved by the Department ofAgriculture, Food, and the Marine, and are featured on the current Accepted Concrete Slat List for use in grant-aided buildings.
Our complete range of cattle slats, manhole slabs and wall beams conform to and exceed the European standard: I.S. EN 12737:2004+A1:2007 Precast concrete products – Floor slats for & I.S. EN 13225:2013 Precast concrete products – Linear structural elements. See our Technical Certification Tab for documentation purposes.
Harringtons cattle slats are designed to drain slurry away as quickly as possible, leaving a clean surface, which leads to cleaner cows. The standing space design of 165mmwide ribs and optimised slot sizes maintain cow hoof comfort, and fast draining action helps to prevent slurry heel and other associated foot problems.
At Harringtons we say that ‘there is no strength in water’, so all our high strength cattle slats, beams and slabs are produced using a dry-cast manufacturing process.
The key to quality concrete is to keep the water-cement ratio as low as possible.
All cattle slats are available with an extra dairy grip upon request.
The cattle slat dry cast manufacturing process at Harrington Concrete & Quarries is manually overseen by a specialist production team for quality control and visual inspection at each stage, ensuring a good quality, nice finish, and consistent product.,
See slat replacements if you wish to have slats inspected by our company representatives.
Slats generally will corrode from the bottom which means slat
condition cannot be seen easily from the top surface.
If you would like a Harrington representative to call and inspect
your slats, please contact one of our Sales Team.
Harringtons have a wide range of specialised equipment to replace old, damaged cattle slats with high quality, high strength cattle slats.
All jobs will first need to be inspected by our company to ensure it is possible to carry out works safely.
