The waterbed makes the cow 'float' on the water layer, so the weight of the animal is evenly distributed. This prevents the formation of pressure points and prevents bare and swollen heels.
The Dual waterbeds have a separation between the front (knee) and the rear (belly/heel) water compartments. This gives the Dual waterbeds extra knee comfort. Dual waterbeds are suitable for all types of freestall divider. The mattresses are supplied on rolls and rolled into the barn, after which they are anchored and filled with water.
Thanks to the shape of the Dual waterbed, urine and possibly the leaked milk will run off the waterbed. This will strongly reduce the infection pressure and consequently minimise the risk of Mastitis. Since the cubicle bed remains all but dry, the savings on litter will be considerable. Less litter and less labour will substantially reduce the costs.
The difference with the Single Waterbed is that the Dual Waterbed consists of two compartments and therefore provides extra comfort for the cow's knees.

In both renovation and new construction projects, all types of floating cubicle separations can be used in combination with the Dual waterbed. Suits stall widths of 110, 112.5, 115, 120 and 125 cm.
Dual waterbeds can also be mounted in the tie-up cow house without the need for changing your livestock housing.
The correct positioning of the knee bar in combination with the neck bar is very important for the best position of the cow. This will also keep the stalls cleaner. In addition, this prevents the so-called slouching in the cubicle, that means the cow standing with her front legs in the cubicle and her hind legs on the manure passage, because the cow dares to lie down and can easily get up again.
The Dual Waterbed is easy to install and fits in just about any barn. The waterbeds are supplied on rolls from which the required number is cut off. After unrolling, the mat is fixed to the two ends with stainless steel strips and special stainless-steel concrete nails. At the front, the mat is fixed with aluminium profiles and again with the special stainless-steel concrete nails. After that, each waterbed is individually filled with water and is then ready for use.
