Komfortex flooring in 8 turnout pens
Our client runs a first-class dressage training and stud facility in the UK. The 8 occupants of the stables required additional space for their mental and physical stimulation. When the flooring was required for the turnout pens several years ago the floor of choice was a pour on rubber.
Under constant use, some areas started degrading which resulted in a higher risk of injury to the horses. See images below:
What makes the Komfortex flooring ideal for this turnout pen project?
Improved slip resistance - Komfortex is subjected to slip resistance testing and the results are consistent in both wet and dry conditions. This is important as the horses access the turnout in both conditions.
Weather-proof, frost-proof and permeable - As the turnout pens are permanently outside this is an important feature to consider. Rain is able to drain away and frost/cold temperatures will not damage the flooring.
Resistant to urine - Komfortex has a strong resistance to ammonia and other compounds in urine. Also, Komfortex can be cleaned with light detergents or steam cleaner.
Environmentally friendly - made from 100% recycled rubber material that is TUV-tested and non-toxic. Being pre-manufactured the Komfortex is much stronger than conventional rubber surfaces.
