Level and firm surface, concrete or composite paving. A slope is not required.
When using the waterproof rubber stable matting, you will still need a little bedding to soak up the urine. Any liquid that seeps into the joints between the mats at the start will evaporate after a time, then there will be no wet areas under the mats. Stables fitted with these rubber mats are hygienic and odour-free.
50-70% less bedding – means much less mucking out and less expense.
The rubber stable matting is urine and dung proof, meets high quality standards and has a very long lifespan.
Kind to joints / elastic:
The springy and cushioning effect of the rubber stable matting protects the hoof mechanism. This is important for your horse because it means better circulation and less lameness. Worn patches and worn hooves become a thing of the past!
Non-slip surface provides the highest level of safety - your horse won't slip when he tries to stand up – no bare, hard concrete floor if bedding gets pushed aside when the horse stands up - the non-slip rubber stable matting allows your horse to move comfortably around his stable.
Less expense/less work:
Your horse's risk of injury is reduced to the absolute minimum, along with your workload and, therefore, costs. Less bedding means better air quality - helps to prevent respiratory problems. Lower vet's bills - healthier horses - less mucking out - more time with your horse.
The rubber stable matting insulates noise, so hooves don't make any sound. This means more quiet in the stable and in the neighbourhood (e.g. houses etc.).
Rubber stable matting increases your horse's comfort - no cold, no rheumatism.
SAGUSTU rubber stable mats are long-lasting, making them an economical choice. Bedding is becoming increasingly expensive and more difficult to dispose of. Our products can save you money, because you will only need max. 30% of the bedding you used to use. SAGUSTU rubber stable mats will pay for themselves, thanks also to their longevity, in a short time. After just a few months, according to a Cavallo test!
Easy to fit yourself! Weighing on average 20kg/m 2 , the corners of the mats won't turn up (even if they haven't been joined together), so muck can't get underneath them. If you aren't using full matting, we recommend that you attach the mats mechanically using rust-proof screws or use a surround, if you're not using Eldorado Puzzle Matting or Eldorado Air Cushion Matting. Rubber expands when it heats up and ridges can be formed if the mats are too close to a wall.
Adjust using a flooring knife. Making various different measurements can minimize off-cuts.
