Plastic PolarPad

The PolarPad is a plastic pad engineered and designed as a base for HVAC equipment. The plastic pad is injection molded from polyethylene, which is durable, strong, and lightweight. The unique design has strong uniform ribbing along the underside. The pad is molded with a texture along the top, and rounded edges on the sides to give a clean concrete look and feel.

The PolarPad is best used as a base for light, ground supported equipment such as air conditioning condensers, swimming pool filters, and heat pumps. Pads must be fully supported across the bottom, and set on compacted soil, hard surface, or gravel.

Have Questions? Ask Matt!

DuraPlas Poultry & Egg expert Matt Porter is here to answer your questions.

What is the advantage of using plastic flooring instead of using wood?

"Eggs laid on square openings are significantly cleaner than eggs laid on wooden slats. Eggs laid on plastic had significantly less surface microorganisms than those laid on wood slats. Our plastic flooring also reduces foot pad problems, leg problems, and breast blisters experienced with wood slats. It will also easily outlast wood slats."


What is the difference between overlapping and non-overlapping flooring?

"The 2’ x 4’ Overlapping floor interlocks along the 4’ sides as well as has an overlap connection on the 2’ ends allowing for the use of just one support where this style panel meets end to end. The 2’ x 4’ Non-Overlapping flooring just interlocks along the 4’ sides and is flush or “flat” along the 2’ end. This style is ideal for designing a flooring section that is 4’ wide."


What is the height of the flooring?

"Depending on the style of poultry flooring, the heights or thicknesses range from .5” – 1.125” "


Can you cut Dura-Slat into smaller pieces and still use them together?

“Dura-Slat panels can be cut with any tool that can cut wood and depending on the style and the size of the cut piece can still be used.”


Can the flooring handle the weight of humans?

“The poultry flooring, when properly supported, can support the weight of the average person.”
