Slotted floors are widely used in agriculture. Livestock and poultry farms use slotted concrete floors to keep their stock dry and clean. The floors have two levels. The first is used to house the stock in comfort. The second is designed for the removal of animal waste.
Slotted concrete floors are also widely used by mushroom farms. The farmers put nutrient substrates on them for pasteurization. Depending on their application, slotted floors differ in extent, height and slot size.
Our company offers steel moulds to make slotted floors of standard sizes for different applications, with slot sizes of 10 to 80 mm. We fulfil orders as per customer drawings and our own designs, developed based on the customer's terms of reference and requirements.
Design of steel moulds
The manufacture of slotted concrete floors requires the following types of steel moulds:
single- and multi-cell;
ones with a vibration system;
ones using metal/plastic opening-forming elements;
concrete casting moulds or an automated concrete prefabrication line.
We produce all of the above options to different slot length and width specifications. Concrete sections produced using our moulds are structurally strong, robust and smooth and will maintain their physical properties throughout their service life.
Steel moulds for slotted floors of mushroom farms
The slotted floors used by mushroom farms are subject to high standards of surface smoothness. Any irregularity can cause ruptures in the fabric on which soil and mushroom substrate are placed.
Only a perfectly smooth mould surface makes it possible to produce superior, even items.
We make casting moulds for strong concrete sections using high-quality rolled metal products, procured from tried and tested suppliers. We comply with the generally accepted standards used in Russia and in the EU.
In order to accelerate the production process, compact the concrete mixture and prevent the formation of craters in concrete items, the steel mould can be fitted with a spring-loaded vibrating frame. The finished slotted flooring is more robust, stronger and does not require sanding.
Steel moulds for slotted floors of livestock farms
Because of lower adhesion between plastic and concrete, it is easier to demould the finished product; what is more, plastic surface requires no additional treatment with a special agent.
When making steel moulds, we use high-precision plasma-cutting tools and milling and turning machines. This allows us to fully comply with the ratio specifications.
We guarantee the quality of our products, which has already been appreciated by customers not only in Russia but also in EU countries.
The M-Konstruktor plant offers manufacturing of steel moulds for slatted floors proprietary designed in accordance with applicable technical requirements.
In-process monitoring at every step of the steel mould manufacturing allowing to guarantee its proper quality.
The moulds for the slatted floors are manufactured according to a customer's specification and provided with plastic or metal blockouts.
