- The Best Drainage Solution for Stables:
When it comes to horse stables, proper drainage is crucial for maintaining a healthy and hygienic environment. To ensure the best drainage, Eco Sustainable House recommends utilizing Gravel Cell, a modular and eco-friendly turf stabilisation product. Gravel Cell is designed with a unique cell structure that allows water to drain efficiently, preventing the accumulation of moisture and reducing the risk of mud and stagnant water in the stable.
- Flooring Options for Horse Stalls:
The floor of a horse stall plays a vital role in ensuring the comfort, safety, and cleanliness of the horse. Eco Sustainable House understands the importance of providing a suitable flooring solution. When combined with Gravel Cell, there are various horse stable flooring materials that can be used, such as:
Rubber Mats: Rubber mats offer cushioning, slip resistance, and durability. When placed on top of Gravel Cell, they provide a comfortable and non-slip surface for the horses.
Interlocking Pavers: Interlocking pavers provide a solid and sturdy surface. When installed over Gravel Cell, they enhance stability while maintaining effective drainage.
Concrete with Drainage Channels: Concrete floors with integrated drainage channels can be combined with Gravel Cell for optimal drainage. The channels facilitate the flow of water, reducing the risk of pooling and promoting a clean and dry environment.
