Best Horse Barn Aisle Flooring Ideas

By Paige Cerulli Created: July, 2017 - Modified: February, 2024

Quality barn aisle flooring cannot be defined through a single aspect of a flooring product. Rather, it's that quality comes from a multitude of characteristics. For example, quality barn aisle mats are made from top-notch materials so they remain durable, tough, and in good condition - even after years and years of heavy use. Because horse barn aisle flooring is often subject to extreme conditions, it needs to be able to hold up against the elements. In addition, quality barn aisle mats provide a comfortable surface that insulates against both temperature and sound. The following top five horse mat products for barn aisles offer all of that and more. Read on to hone in on the specific characteristics that make each product stand out.

Top 5 Horse Barn Aisle Flooring Ideas

1. Speedy Installation: Rubber Flooring Rolls 1/2 Inch Black Geneva

Need horse barn aisle flooring ASAP? Rubber Flooring Rolls (1/2 inch) can be installed quicker than any other barn aisle mats. All you have to do is unroll directly over any smooth, hard, and flat surface. An easy tape down around the perimeter and at the seams is all it takes to keep rubber roll mats in place. For installations under 400 square feet, tape may not even be necessary. These rolls are factory cut with precision so they will lay side-by-side without any gaps.

Rubber rolls can be cut with a utility knife for wall-to-wall installations. Once in place, they create durable, hard-wearing barn aisle flooring. Rubber Flooring Rolls are considered to be a green product as they are made from recycled rubber and may contribute to LEED building points. These rubber flooring rolls come at great shipping rates and are shipped from locations nationwide.
