KURA walkway floorings made of rubber provide ideal softness

The right softness makes all the difference!

Problem:

On hard floors claw damages often occur, more than 80 % of them on the outer claws of the hind legs.

Background:

The outer toe is approx. 3 mm longer by nature.

Natural ground contact of cattle:

The hind outer claw steps down first and therefore absorbs the peak load:

The inner claw takes the secondary impact – faster on a soft surface than on a hard surface:

Floor requirements:

The claw sinks approx. 3 mm into the ground for optimal protection against overload

→ The soft KURA covering is especially adapted to the natural demands of the cow!

Suitable for new construction, as well as for renovation of slippery or claw-damaging floors.
