Rubber matting is a great flooring solution for your stables. For those of you who think it is a waste of time and money here are some reasons you should reconsider.
Although there is an initial cost to purchasing rubber matting, it begins its payback immediately after being installed. The large reduction in the regular cost of bedding and the savings in muck disposal added to the enormous amount of time saved in mucking out, all add to a win-win situation. Fairfield rubber matting is designed for your horses, it will not stretch, split or crack in use, giving an incredibly long life span.
Rubber matting has a huge health benefit for your horses. Standing for long periods especially on hard flooring such as concrete can seriously affect the joints and hooves of your animals. By installing rubber matting, this can cushion their joints and reduce pressure on them.
Rubber matting acts as an insulator against cold weather, so you don’t have to worry that your horse is suffering in the cold. The matting reduces the cold and damp that often passes through straw bedding from a concrete floor. This increases the comfort of your animals.
This is an advantage for yourself as well as for your animals. Because the matting provides a non slippery surface it prevents accidents for them and for you. The matting is more similar to their natural environment giving them a sense of familiarity and comfort.
By eliminating or reducing your horses bedding, this in turn reduces dust spores in the stable. This can help with breathing problems and allergies and provide a cleaner environment.
