Matting Used in Equine Facility

Case Study

Challenge

A local equestrian facility complained that the rubber mats they were using were very heavy, didn’t fit the stall well, wore out often and were hard to clean. They constantly had to lift them, move them and replace them and yet knew they needed to have a comfortable surface for their expensive show horses to stand and lie down on.



“We love the mats and are planning on adding Safe-Flex matting to other stalls and wash area as well.”

Solution

In true form, a Safe-Flex Floor System was the perfect solution-–we put our A1B tiles in the stalls, which fit very well.

  • The stable owner remarked that they stayed together well and were much easier to clean than the original rubber mats.

  • In addition, they were considerably warmer on cold nights which was great for horses who were required to be in peak performance condition for their owners.

  • An anecdotal side effect was that one particular horse in a stall with Safe-Flex mats seemed to be in much better spirits than he had been after a usual night on rubber mats—the barn manager speculated that he may be getting a better nights rest on the new surface.

  • After three months of daily use, they showed no sign of wear.
