Super Loop Cubicles

The Super Loop/ Cantilever Cow Cubicles are the most popular cubicles on the market. This type of cubicle design has been developed over the years. It is manufactured in heavy wall 60mm steel tube. The design provides for superior comfort for all cow sizes while properly indexing the cow to lie squarely on the bed reducing soiling and accidental teat damage to a neighbouring cow. The Lifetime Value of our cubicle is unmatched in the market.

Quality

Our cubicles are manufactured out of 3.65mm heavy-wall 60mm galvanised pipe. The German-manufactured pipe is what gives the cubicle its longevity. It is a more expensive raw material, but the quality is unmatched. We have tested a galvanised pipe from all over the world. We have found that cubicles made from cheaper or lighter pipe result in hairline cracks and flaking when put through the manufacturing process. The lifetime value and quality just do not compare to the European-manufactured pipe. Our cubicles will stand the test of time and cattle with up to two or three times the life span of some cubicle options out there.

Product Description

What is the point of Cubicles?

The point of a cubicle first and foremost is to index cows properly. Proper indexing means the cow lies squarely on the bed reducing soiling, accidental teat damage to a neighbouring cow and maximising cow spaces. Some plastic cubicles on the market seem to have gone away or forgotten this resulting in damage to teats, loss of cow spaces with cows occupying 1 and a half or 2 spaces which also results in more beds to be cleaned.

We have four mounting options for our cubicles

  • Single Line Post & Rail Mounted cubicles

Where a wall is not good enough to hold cubicles, we use the post and rail system. A 76mm post is placed every second space with 60mm cubicle pipe all tied in with your unique cubicle clamps for added strength. This free-standing system is perfect for this scenario, maximising strength, and durability.

  • Head-To-Head Post & Rail Mounted Cubicles

We use the post and rail system on our head to head cubicles. The cubicles are stood with a 76mm post or tie into an RSJ every second space. Our unique cubicle clamps add strength when linking our 60mm pipe on to our posts and cubicles.

When installing head to head cubicles the cubicle pipe is offset from the centre. Many people think the centre is the uprights but in fact, the horizontal pipe is the true centre for the cubicles. This needs to be accounted for when setting the beds or with the cubicles. (Example 6’6ft one side and 6’9ft cubicles the other)

The post and rail single or head to head system allows for adjustment up or down the row providing for superior comfort for all cow sizes while properly indexing the cow to lie squarely on the bed reducing soiling and accidental teat damage to a neighbouring cow.

  • Channel mounted cubicles.

The cubicle pipe is mounted to the wall using our channel brackets in a fixed position. This means the cubicle cannot be adjusted up or down the row like some of our other mounting options. The design provides for superior comfort for all cow sizes while properly indexing the cow to lie squarely on the bed reducing soiling and accidental teat damage to a neighbouring cow. This design only works well with good wall preferably mass concrete.

  • Z rail wall mounting Cubicles

The cubicle pipe is mounted to the wall using our unique Z-rail brackets and 60mm cubicle pipe. This means the cubicle can be adjusted up or down the row to suit.

This design provides for flexibility for all cow sizes while properly indexing the cow to lie squarely on the bed reducing soiling and accidental teat damage to a neighbouring cow. This design only works well with good wall preferably mass concrete.

Hugh MacEneaney, Teagasc Dairy Adviser, Mullinavat, Co Kilkenny

“Good facilities allow farmers to expand production and incomes and add to the asset value of the farm. They also lead to a better quality of life for the farm family by reducing the workload and the drudgery. In many cases, particularly on dairy farms, buildings pay for themselves over a 7-10 year period. This is especially true when capital grant and tax savings are available.”
