Soft-Step is PVC coated wire designed by Riverdale exclusively for poultry slat use . Soft-Step poultry slats were developed when our team of engineers discovered a need for safer and more sanitary flooring in breeder and broiler houses. Soft-Step is manufactured using premium high-strength steel wire and protected with Riverdale’s proprietary Galvanized after Welding process and fuse-bonded PVC coating. Our manufacturing standards ensure product durability and longevity that gives farmers and breeders a lasting poultry slat solution that helps to reduce bacteria levels and improves manageability.
