A steeper roof pitch increases the air space available to each horse, and outlets at ridge and eaves optimise ventilation. Black Onduline roofing sheets lined with Sterling board are supplied as standard, but other materials such as cedar shingles, fibre cement slates or tiles of your choice are also available.
The buildings are clad with ex 19mm Tongue and Groove shiplap, and fully lined to eaves level with 18mm Hardwood Plywood.
Door frames are wrapped in heavy gauge galvanised chew strips to protect all exposed edges from horses with a tendency to chew.
Stables doors are 1.2m wide, 2.13m high and a hefty 60mm thick; door front protection is also included as standard.
Hopper windows are protected with heavy galvanised steel bars at 75mm centres, and matching bars are available as “chat grilles” for dividing walls, in a choice of sizes.
This range was named in honour of the nations' favourite racehorse Red Rum, when we had built a specially designed loosebox for him in 1991. Naturally nothing was too good for such a famous horse and the resulting stable was the first Chaser loosebox. Since then this range has proved popular with trainers and professionals at home and abroad.
