Our granulate rubber slabs are produced from recycled commercial tyres so are very environmentally friendly.
The tyres are chopped into granular fragments, metal particles are removed and the granules are then graded for their requirements and re-bonded in moulds with a special resin to form the very strong, dry, safe and hard wearing one metre square slab. These slabs will give years of use. The slabs have 'feet' which form a honeycombed underside. The honeycomb design permits air flow and drainage of fluids under the slabs, fluids are also able to pass through the special crumb construction of the slabs, which helps keep a dry surface.
New slabs have a wax residue, this will disperse after a few days under normal use. To see the drainage properties of a rubber sample, the wax can be removed by washing with any water based washing-up liquid, then pour some water over the slab and see it run through. Example of use includes horse stable/boxes and animal pens, for this type of application the high quality 45mm (1¾") thick honeycombed slabs are used, with these a vast reduction in bedding material can be obtained. This is unlike other types of thinner virgin (solid) rubber mats, which still require bedding, and are not as warm, hard wearing or dry. 20mm mats can be screwed to walls for protection. 30mm mats for transporter floors.
Reduced bedding saves on the cost of the material, labour and disposal of the used bedding. We assume you are aware that commercial stable manure is classed as industrial waste, disposal of such waste must meet all current regulations. LESS WASTE, LESS COST!!!
Total cost is under £2.50 per week. (Based on 12 x 12 stable with 14 slabs and 5 years use). All samples available - please contact us with your requirements.
