Title: FLOOR STRUCTURE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a floor structure for a horse stall, comprising a floor (1) and a damping plane (3) which is arranged at a distance from the floor (1) and substantially parallel thereto and on the upper face of which a layer of bedding (2) can be applied. At least one discharge cavity (4) via which liquid excretions of the horse can be removed is formed between the floor (1) and the damping plane (3). A plurality of passage openings (5) are provided which are distributed over the damping plane (3) and through which the liquid excretions can be discharged from the upper face of the damping plane (3) into the at least one discharge cavity (4) located below the damping plane (3), and each of the passage openings has a screen element (7) which is preferably offset slightly downwards relative to the upper face of the damping plane (3), is permeable to the liquid excretions, and prevents the entry of relatively large solid particles into the at least one discharge cavity and an obstruction of the passage openings. The screen element has a plurality of screen openings, wherein the diameter or the opening width of the screen openings is much smaller than the diameter or the opening width of the passage openings, and the thickness of the screen element is much smaller than the diameter or the opening width of the passage openings.
