Ark Rubber & Resin Solutions’ silage mats protect silage in pits, by creating a tight seal, which in turn, ensures maximum quality of feed.
The non-porous, non-absorbent mats – which can last up to 15 years - give protection, cushioning and thermal insulation; they are easy to clean and disinfect and do not swell, lift or curl.
Increased silage quality
“Heavy-duty rubber silage pit mats add weight to the cover reducing the air inside and hugely increasing the quality of the silage.” a spokesperson for the company explained.
“The uniform distribution of the weight across the pit ensures that a tight air seal is maintained; this creates a much higher quality feed which translates directly into both milk quality and milk; this also results in increased weight of your livestock.”
At 1.8 x 1.2m and weighing 30kg, the mats prevent birds piercing the cover and are viewed as being a much more environmentally friendly option than tyres.
The rubber silage pit mats have integrated handles on the underside and when not in use, they stack nicely on a pallet and are easy to store taking up very little room.
