Which matting is right for my horse float?

Let’s talk horse comfort and safety, starting with the right matting for your horse float. This guide is all about helping you provide the best comfort and safety for your horses, so you can make an informed decision.

NumatAGRI has got your back with a range of tough and versatile mats specially made for horse floats and trucks. Let’s take a closer look at each option.

Hammerblow Mat

Hammerblow features a high-grip profile, making it ideal for flooring in horse floats and trucks. It’s available with either a flat base or ribbed base. You’ll have flexibility with different sizing options, including various thicknesses and widths. The flat base option is great if you’re gluing the mat to another surface, while the ribbed base provides extra cushioning. Your one-piece mat will be custom-cut for an exact fit.

These mats come with a solid 5-year warranty, and they’re eco-friendly, made from recycled rubber. Plus, they’re slip-resistant, keeping both you and your horses safe and sound.

Choosing the Right Float Matting for Your Needs

When it comes to selecting the ideal matting for your horse float, consider what aspects are most important to you and your animals.

If your priority is enhancing comfort, grip, and stability during travel while reducing stress and fatigue, start by covering your float or truck floor. Both WideRib and Hammerblow mats are excellent options, with Hammerblow offering added flexibility for different width floats or trucks.

For increased comfort and shock absorption, resulting in a smoother journey and reduced stress on your animals’ legs and joints, opt for floor float matting. This type of matting also minimizes road noise, is easy to clean, and provides additional protection to your float from wear and tear. 

If you’re concerned about insulation, warmth, and preventing injuries from your horse moving about, consider starting with a wall lining like FlatMat.

To boost confidence for both horse and owner during loading and unloading by providing secure footing, prioritise  RampMat for your ramp.
