Cheaper alternative to Polymax?

I need to order some more polymax, so I searched google in hopes of finding a cheaper source than Tek-supply. Well, I came across this stuff, and I think I will order some this winter. $10 less a sheet than polymax, and the shipping is quite reasonable if you are ordering multiple sheets.

DURA-SLAT Poultry Flooring - 24" x 48" | QC Supply

Has anyone seen this stuff in person?

I haven't seen that stuff in person, but it's a good deal if you're ordering a few panels.

I used VersaPad from Murdochs: Murdoch's – Little Giant - VersaPad Flooring

$20/sheet and available in store, which may or may not be convenient depending on where you are in MT, and may or may not work out in your favor over shipping. Food for thought.

Hot diggity! Thanks Sean, that is a much better option than ordering a bunch at a time. I am halfway between the msla and Hamilton murdochs. I will pick some up and report back.

I have a couple spares I'd let go of, if they don't have any in stock.

I'm interested in the DuraSlat since it comes in white (link). But, it looks like the grid spacing is larger at ~1.1" as compared to 7/8" for the PolyMax- I'm concerned it may not be as strong.

Has anyone used the DuraSlat and can you confirm if it is sturdy enough to walk on if used in a double-rail frame application?

Thanks!

I bought some last year. I cut it up to fit into the bottoms of my drop bags. Works great so far.

So you used the Dura-Slat stuff specifically?

I am wondering if Dura-Slat is sturdy enough to span the 10" gap on my double rail frame (and still be able to be walked on), when placed with long-ways along the frame rails- any idea on that?

It kinda looked like Dura-Slat was burlier in one direction than the other- seems like it is made to span a gap perpendicular to how I'd like to orient it. Any chance you'd put a picture up of the bottom of the Dura-Slat material? I can't seem to find it anywhere online.

I thought it was Dura Slat. But, I went back and looked at it and it's Polymax from FarmTek. Sorry.
