The ECO-Floor has already acquired a notable reputation in the market for cowbarns. An optimum ‘walkable’ surface has been created with this exclusive mix of concrete and rubber. More than 1500 dairy farmers have already invested in the extremely durable ECO-Floor, either with new build barns or when renovating. Our website will outline the clear advantages of investing in an ECO-Floor and convince you that it is not only an excellent idea but also a durable one.
The ECO-Floors have been developed that they can be used as lowemission floor. The low-emission ECO-Floor has been fully measured and recognized in the Netherlands with a definitive emission factor of 6.0 kg NH3 per cow per year. A new variant of the ECO-Floor is the ECO-Separationfloor, which farmers can use in primary manure separation. This new floor will be extensively tested and measured in practice in the coming years.
Investing in the ECO-Floor is choosing
- A proven technique with more than 1.500 references
- High durability and long lifespan of the materials
- Increased activity of your cows thanks to excellent walkability
- Good claw health
- Maximum grip for your cows and for yourself
- Good and simple heat detection
- An investment in higher productivity
Composition of the ECO-Floor
- ECO concrete slat 4, 6 OR 10 ton axle loading
- Rubber inserts reinforced with glass fibre elements
- Emission reducing sealing valves
- Emission factors
As standard, the ECO-Floor is suitable for vehicles with an axle load of up to 4 ton. As an option, axle loading can be increased to 10 ton for lengths of up to 300 cm, and 6 ton for lengths up to 400 cm. Openings have been created in the ECO-Floor for fitting the rubber inserts. The floor’s surface is profiled with the edges deburred.
The rubber inserts (4cm thick) have been especially developed for the ECO-Floor. Each insert has two reinforcing glass fibre elements to absorb the horizontal forces when walked or driven on. Only high quality rubber is used, developed with cowbarn conditions in mind. We recommend reading the DLG report published on our website, which confirms its extreme durability.
Due to the ECO-Floor's modular construction, the sealing valves can be installed before or after the barn has been in use. The valves are placed below the rubber inserts and allow the manure to pass through extremely well. You can ask us for a number of reference projects similar to your proposed cowbarn construction and arrange to visit a company using an ECO-Floor in practice.

ECO-Floor for renovation
Carrying out a new-build project with ECO-Floor is often accompanied by a renovation of the older barn. ECO-Renovation slats are the ideal solution for this. The height and length are geared to commonly used dimensions of old concrete slats.
