Choosing Internal Stables
When you’re looking to purchase your new Internal Stables there are so many factors to consider such as the layout, which style frontage you prefer, finishing touches, infills and unfortunately the often limiting factor – the budget!
So here are a few pointers on these options to help you with your decision making.
The layout sometimes needs to be dictated by the barn housing the stables in terms of size and quantity of stables you can fit in, however we do offer a bespoke made to measure service to ensure the stables fit the space provided. Also it’s worth considering other options such as Wash Bays, Tack and Feed Rooms and for livery yards perhaps a kitchen / sitting area? We have also fitted Internal stables for livery yards with an individual Tack/Feed room to the rear of each stable to enable liveries their own personal space which works really well.
Club Range – V Sliding Door in Recycled Plastic
With several options there is something to suit every personal preference and budget, from the entry level Club range to the Prestige range, we can accommodate all tastes!
We offer 3 different Infills, each encased in a steel frame for strength and durability, with their own unique characteristics.
Tanalised Pine – This is our starting price option and being pressure treated, with 40mm wide timber (which is thicker than most of our competitors) it is our most popular option. However, customers need to bear in mind that this is a natural product and due to the pressure treating process, in extreme heat conditions the wood could naturally shrink or swell. Should this occur we supply complimentary replacement planks upon request, which can easily be replaced by the customer. We can also provide crib plates on the doors for extra protection against any nibblers on the yard!
Recycled Plastic – A great hardwearing and durable option, especially for using with washrooms as they are waterproof and easy to clean. We wouldn’t recommend using them in a project which involves direct sunlight as the plastic can warp over time, however they are completely maintenance free and very robust.
Hardwood (Oak or Denya) – The ‘creme de la creme’ of infills, hardwood is durable and long lasting whilst providing the distinctive touch of class to any stable yard.
There are many optional extras you can add to personalise your stables to create a yard which is completely tailored to your taste.
Powder coating the steel creates a very regal and grand appearance, and as you can choose any colour from the RAL chart, there is a colour to suit everybody’s preferences.
Finials really are the finishing touches, with brass caps, balls or even horses heads, the choice is yours.
Paint or Stain can also be applied to wooden infills to colour the wood to your own liking.
In addition to the finishing touches, accessories can make the day to day use of the stables so much easier.
We offer a range of accessories including;
- Rubber mating to reduce the amount of bedding used and provide a kinder flooring for the horses to stand and move around on when they are lying down or rolling.
- Swivel feeders are obviously very useful at feed time, but if your horses don’t need extra hard feed then they are also handy to store brushes and grooming equipment in.
- Internal Hay Racks are a real time saver as you can just pop in slabs of hay rather than having to fill up hay nets.
- Rug Rails provide a great place not only to hang rugs but also for drying any wet saddlecloths after a ride in the Great British weather!
