The mushroom divider is an older divider construction type and still can be found in many old cattle houses for this reason. These dividers are still in demand nowadays. They are not cantilevered, so pockets must be cut into the cover for the pipes, e.g. for continuous rolls.
The following example shows a solution with small WINGFLEX single mats. In this case, the pockets are not cut into the mat, but rather into the wide profiles used. This way the mats stay intact and can also be used for another installation – e.g. when exchanging dividers.
elevated cubicles with WINGFLEX and ergoBOARD as brisket board
the cubicle row is completely covered with the mats
from the rear concrete edge the installation distance is marked and the mats are aligned to it
the distances for the profiles are determined
if necessary, mats are marked and cut to fit
then the pockets for the pipes are marked on the profiles and cut out
then the profiles are inserted exactly
since the profiles are divided, an additional countersink must be set for fastening
the profiles are fixed at each countersink, the screws are not yet fastened tight
now all pre-installed screws are fastened tight
then the mats are fastened 2 times at the front edge
the mat edges of both outer mats are fastened afterwards with profiles
finally ergoBOARDS are installed at the front mat edges as brisket boards
"The animals like the mats very much, and they are occupied almost 100 % daily. After entering the cubicles with lying mats, the animals lie down faster, and their natural standing up behaviour has improved.
Cows prefer areas covered with the new lying mats."
