Solid rubber stable mats to protect your horse's legs
We supply various different patterns of solid rubber stable mats, with the most popular being the bubbletop and amoebic surface mats (see below for sizes and pricing).
Our rubber flooring has been laid on earth, crushed lime and chalk, crushed concrete, compressed sand, concrete, brick and cobble bases – almost every possible surface you can think of.
Our solid rubber mat systems are made of high quality natural and synthetic rubber. All solid rubber mats include a percentage of 'fillers' – either simple carbon black or inert ground rubber particle – but too much of this recylced material diminishes the quality of the end product.
In keeping with environmental policy, we include this material but keep it to a minimum, ensuring that our mats are produced from the maximum amount of new synthetic rubber compound as possible.
Claims of 100 per cent new rubber are not possible as all mats include fillers, even if only carbon black, which mostly comes from recycled rubber!

As an anti-poaching mat for horses, the mats can be laid onto grass and will offer a non-slip surface that helps against 'poaching' – particularly useful in gateways or for walkways.
The same mats are also used for wet areas or wash-down areas for animals, enabling the free flow of water away from horse and groom while giving a safe footing for both.
Laid onto grass in a play-area, our 1m x 1.5m x 22mm hollow mats offer a safe fall height to EN 1177 of 2.5mts, and again they will help protect grass roots from wear in high activity areas, while also offering a good anti-slip surface.
Hollow mats are also used as anti-fatigue mats, providing a softer surface while standing, which ensures minimal muscular and skeletal stress while also producing that same safe, non-slip surface.
Hollow mats also act as good dirt traps, both as entrance mats to buildings and in the workplace, where they can trap waste product such as metal swarf. By simply picking the mats up and washing or shaking out, the dirt is quickly disposed of.
