Wall Channel Cubicles
There are two options to mount these cubicles:
- Channel mounted cubicle
- Z rail-mounted cubicle
The difference is that the wall channel cubicles are fixed and the Z rail is adjustable along the pipe. The pipe is mounted to the wall using our Z-rail brackets. 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 will result in the cow lying for longer periods. Increased lying times combined with improved cow comfort leads to higher milk production. Our Super Loop Cubicle comes with a wide range of cubicle fittings and accessories. There is a wide variety of cubicle lengths available to suit any cow type and any length bed.
Our wall channel 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 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 does not compare to the European-made pipe.

“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.”
