Panels make path to hygiene smooth

GIVE young pigs and calves a smooth, hygienic surface using IPS slotted panels that are easy to clean and disinfect, says supplier TFS.

IPS slotted panels are designed for use in flat-decks and first-stage piglet rearing and calf pens. They are made of high-density recycled polyethylene, making them strong and impact resistant, it adds.

Standard panels are 1.2m x 0.5m (4ft by 20in) and 50mm (2in) thick, with 60mm by 350mm (2.4in by 14in) slots. They are supplied in grey, green or black, and can be factory welded to other IPS panels, says TFS.

Prices start at about £23/m sq (01572-813020, fax 01572-813263).
