Our Equimat is lightweight which makes it very easy to fit and lift for sweeping. The interlocking edge keeps the mats in place and makes it look neat and tidy. Equimats come in two types of thickness for ponies to heavy horses; 20mm and 28mm. We also do an Equimat wall matting which comes in black or a matching green to the original Equimat which is 10mm thick.
Our Equimat is made up of EVA and rubber to provide maximum comfort without excess stretching and movement of the mats!
Equimat have been manufactured with your horse in mind to provide a permanent soft and insulated floor so you can safely reduce bedding without compromising your horse’s comfort.
EVA is made up from a type of foam material which has minute air bubbles in. If you were to place a horse onto pure EVA, the bubbles will deflate and squash down. Unfortunately once these bubbles have been squashed they do not return back to their original shape. This is why you get spreading in the matting.
To prevent this from happening, we have mixed our EVA with a soft rubber, therefore keeping it lightweight and avoiding excess stretching.
The reason for cows being fine with pure EVA mats is because they lay on the matting therefore spreading their weight evenly across the material whereas a horse will stand and walk over the mats with four pressure points (all four hoofs).
A lot of the 'cheaper' matting have a 10 year warranty but you will often find in the small print that this does not cover spreading in the mats.
Equimats: safe, cushioned comfort and thermal insulation for your horse; light and easy to manoeuvre for you. A trusted British brand.
