Matting for Stables
Why Rubber Stable Mats?
There are a few important things to consider before investing in rubber stable mats. Here are the key factors to think about when looking for good quality horse mats that will endure heavy loads and high traffic while remaining high performance for many years.
Rubber Stable Mats that are Durable
Durability is one of the most important features of stable matting. Opt for heavy duty material such as heavy duty rubber or foam which will stand up to heavy use, consistent cleaning and high traffic. Solid rubber stable mats are the best choice for superior durability and have a longer lifespan. Eva mats are also a good option but are not as hardwearing as rubber products.
High Comfort Horse Mats
Stable mats should be comfortable and protective in order to keep horses and other livestock healthy and well looked after. Eva stable mats are renowned for their anti-fatigue properties and high density which provides comfortable cushioning for animals to stand, walk and sleep on. Similarly, rubber matting is also an ergonomic surface choice which supports animals for stable bedding or exercise areas.
Non-Slip Stable Matting
Both rubber stable mats and foam horse mats have a texturised surface which is slip-resistant and prevents accidents and injuries from slips and falls.
Moisture Resistant Stable Mats
As horse mats are regularly pressure washed and cleaned, stable mats should be resistant to water and moisture to avoid damage, mould or bacteria. Rubber stable mats will not absorb water and have built in drainage channels on the underside to allow moisture to pass through.
Easy to Maintain Horse Mats
Rubber matting or foam tiles are simple to keep clean and maintain. There is no specialist cleaning regime or costly damage repairs which make them a very cost-effective and efficient surface solution for busy, operational stable environments.
Simple Installation Stable Mats
The great thing about rubber stable mats and foam stable matting is that they can be easily fitted without specialist assistance. Foam horse mats interlock together like a jigsaw puzzle and can be glued to the subfloor or left loose-laid for portability. Likewise, rubber mats butt together and remain in position without adhesive so there is the option to move the mats around or reconfigure when necessary.
