The weight of rubber set is 600 lbs. The weight for Frelonic Set is 180 pounds. Each Frelonic 12’ x 12’ set weighs 420 lbs. less than rubber.
Why do the Frelonic horse stall mat sets measure less than 12 ft x 12 ft ?
The mats need to expand in the summer and contract in the winter months. We refer to this as breathing. Placing the mats against a wall would cause buckling in hot humid days. Keep ½” from edges of all walls. The same holds true for 10’ x 12’ ft. set.
What kind of sub-floor is needed to install these equestrian mats?
The sub-floor is extremely important. It requires a firm and flat base made up of cement, asphalt, or stone base. Most important the sub-floor must be flat, firm, and a well draining surface which does not allow any type of liquid to remain beneath the mats.
