Huber Technik Soft Bed System Cow Mat
All our mat is DLG tested and certified. The test center technology and farm inputs of DLG (German Agricultural Society) is an independent test company in Frankfurt. DLG performed the following “Fokus Tests” on Geyer & Hosaja rubber cow mats:
Deformability & Eslasticity Test
Evaluates softness, comfort, and elasticity of a rubber mat before use and after simulating 10 years of normal use.
Permanent Tread Load Test
Evaluates the top and bottom surface wear and softness of a rubber mat after simulating 10-years of normal use. Artificial Cow’s foot exerts 2,200 pounds of downward pressure. After 100,000 up and down movements, mat is measured to evaluate top and bottom surface wear and softness.
Evaluates top-surface wear resistance of a rubber mat after simulating 10 years of normal use. It exerts 110 pounds of downward pressure onto mat. After 10,000 rotations mat is measured to evaluate top-surface wear resistance.
Slip Resistance Test
Evaluates top-surface grip of a rubber mat. Surface grip prevents a cow from slipping. It exerts 22 pounds of downward pressure onto mat while being pulled at 20 mm/second across surface mat. Resistance measurements of a wet and dry mat are recorded to evaluate mats slip resistance.
Mats that pass the DLG Fokus Test are awarded a Test Certificate and a DLG Fokus Test Label.
