HoofGrid® in horse stalls - how it works

HoofGrid® in horse stalls - how it works

First, a typical HoofGrid® stall floor application:
drainage clean-crushed gravel base layer below,
HoofGrid® layer filled level-full with p-gravel and packed,
then shavings, stall mats, stall liner, or a combination per your (your horse's) preference.


HoofGrid® in Stalls, advantages that count . . .                                       
(1) HoofGrid® provides hoof-friendly natural footing stall flooring:
~ permanently water-permeable horse stall flooring with eco-friendly natural drainage,
~ while eliminating the routine stall flooring maintenance required for leveling, drainage maintenance, un-compacting the soil, and more ...
How to check the Infiltration Rate of your stall floor
(2) HoofGrid® reduces monthly Operations Costs:  Bedding Costs, Bedding Replacement costs, Stall Maintenace Labor Costs, and Fouled Bedding/Waste Management Removal and/or composting costs...
~ in comparison to any impervious stall flooring/footing system (such as rubber horse mats, etc.), where horse-friendly bedding is used.
~ Because the urine immediately filters through the bedding layer into the subsoil, no ammonia vapors are created by evaporation.
~ In the subsoil, the natural microbes quickly decompose the nutrients and filter the water.
Resulting in reduced bedding replacement costs (no water-soaked bedding to replace), and greatly reduced bedding/labor/waste-management costs.
Bedding Cost Reductions will vary ...
The percentage of reduction of bedding costs, labor costs, and waste management costs will depend upon the local facility's operational practices.
If the facility removes daily all the fouled bedding (including the urine-soaked bedding), then they may expect a reduction of 75% to 80% - when compared to the costs in previously impervious stall floorings.
