MOORE Concrete has confirmed that it will be exhibiting the company’s updated Ox Strain Post design for the first time at this year’s Royal Ulster Winter Fair.
The specification now includes a 2m cast nailing strip, which is recessed into the face of the concrete post.
Fully recycled, eco-friendly plastic nailing strips are made from crushed CD cases and old hangers that would otherwise end up in landfills or incinerators, resulting in a low-carbon, durable, maintenance-free product that won’t rot never.
“The inclusion of the tape eliminates the need to use wood slats as an attachment point for staples and fence wire, creating an integrated solution for easy customer use,” explained Moore’s Johnny McKinney.
“This updated functionality was included in Ox Strain Post after positive feedback from farmers and contractors using the recently launched Ox Post, which was the first time we have introduced a product with a cast nailing tape.
“It’s encouraging to see a huge increase in demand for these posts as we can now offer a completely wood-free, easy-to-install prefabricated fence solution with the Ox Stump and Ox Post designed to be driven in using ‘a standard post. driver, ”commented Moore’s Keri McGivern.
Moore Concrete will also take the opportunity on December 9 at the Winter Fair to showcase its galvanized waterer cover, which has been introduced on many of the company’s larger waterers.
“Again, these design changes were made in response to feedback received from customers,” Keri confirmed.
“A key advantage of our new galvanized cover is that it has a reduced weight, which means it is lighter and easier to handle.
Another product on display at the Winter Fair will be Moore’s new “Young Stock” group slat range. Designed with a 30mm gap, these slats are ideal for young dairy and beef cattle.
“The Young Stock slat was introduced when we identified a gap in our own livestock housing portfolio. They are 178mm (7 “) deep and 2440mm (8 ‘) to 4572mm (15’) in 150mm increments. As with our existing range, the Young Stock batten is available in a SureFoot finish. on request, ”Keri confirmed.
Moore Concrete has been at the forefront, for many years, in providing quality innovative prefabricated solutions that meet the needs of livestock and arable land producers across the UK and Ireland.
Behind each innovation and product design, agricultural safety is at the heart of the changes chosen. Such was the case with the XL mixing blade, as Keri comments: “In speaking with machine builders, we recognized the growing demand for a larger opening to facilitate the increase in size of modern pumps. The XL mixing slat has an opening of 1000mm (3’3 “) long x 940mm (3’3”) wide.
“The inclusion of a galvanized hinged grid fixed under the mini concrete inserts, which incorporates a smaller hinged element to facilitate the insertion of a pipe into the tank without having to remove all the inserts or the complete grid itself. even, provides an extra layer of protection. Indeed, the new XL Mixing slat incorporates four inserts instead of three to facilitate handling while minimizing handling weight.
The upcoming event gives the Moore Concrete team the opportunity to discuss the benefits of the company’s many products on display, including bunker walls, feeders, tractor weights and internal waterers.
Moore Concrete will be located at booth EK 77 at this year’s Royal Ulster Winter Fair. Visitors will be more than welcome at the booth throughout the day.
