4x6 Interlocking Stall Mats and Kits

Interlocking stall mats are outstanding products for use around barn animals and livestock, especially horses, as well as in workout spaces where large weight machines or free weights are in use.

These rubber mats from Greatmats are available as standalone mats or as kits that cover a certain amount of space. These are thick, heavy-duty mats that will stand up to significant amounts of stress and weight without showing wear and tear.

Size and Shape Options

Customers can select from a wide range of coverage sizes with our interlocking stall mats, which makes it easier to find just the right mat for the area required. By selecting a particular coverage size, installers will hopefully not need to cut these thick mats to try to change the size.

For use in a horse stall, the best option is to select a kit that can cover a pre-configured size like 12x12, 12x24, 10x12, 14x16, or 10x10 ft, among others. The kit consists of a series of smaller interlocking mats that have a puzzle-style edge, allowing the mats to connect tightly without needing to add glue.

Another option is to select standalone mats available in sizes of 2x2, 3x3, or 4x6 ft. Many of these square or rectangular standalone mats will have puzzle-style edges, so installers can connect multiple mats if desired.

Different thicknesses are available too, although 3/4 inches of thickness is the most common. Customers can also select from either 5/8 or 1/2 inches in thickness.

Material Options

When seeking interlocking stall mats, customers can select among rubber or foam materials. Rubber is the most common option, as it is extremely durable, especially for supporting the weight of horses. However, foam can also be a nice option for a temporary stall for horse shows.

Our foam interlocking stall mats have a black color like rubber, yet they weigh significantly less than rubber. This makes it easier to move these tiles or carry them with you when going to a horse show.

When both mats measure 3/4 inches in thickness, a foam horse mat may weigh about 0.5 pounds per square foot of coverage, but a rubber mat may weigh about 4 pounds per square foot.

Pattern and Texture Options

Our interlocking stall mats have a few different textures across the top of both the rubber and foam mats.

With rubber mats, manufacturers may have a smooth top surface, a pebble top, or a raised diamond tread top. Rubber has a naturally grippy surface that will help both the animals and the handlers avoid slipping in wet conditions, and the textured pattern enhances the grip.

Most commonly, foam mats will have a pebble top to deliver the desired level of traction.

When seeking a type of interlocked mat that’s usable in a wash bay for horses, customers may select a type of mat with perforated holes in it. This allows the water to drain through to the subflooring underneath without pooling on top of the mats.

Common Use Options

The most common use case for our interlocking stall mats is to provide support in a horse stall. Rather than having the horse and handlers stand in mud or on sharp gravel in a horse stall, laying out these mats over the top creates a safer and cleaner environment.

Horses and other livestock can make quite a mess in the stall. Horses may paw at the dirt in a stall, creating ruts and holes that could lead to injuries. These mats prevent the horse from reaching the dirt area.

Some athletic facilities will choose these durable mats for installation in a weight training area. The thick rubber protects the subfloor from dropped barbells while also absorbing noise from strenuous workouts.

Installation Options

Installing these mats can be challenging because of their weight. However, having separate pieces that pop together with an interlocking edge simplifies the process of carrying the mats in and out of place.

To further simplify the installation process, it is important to spend some time figuring out what size of coverage is appropriate for the horse stall. Then order the proper size kit to create the desired coverage.

Installers do not need to glue the edges of the interlocking horse mats to ensure that they remain tightly connected. They do not need to adhere the mats to the subfloor either, as the weight of the rubber will hold them in place without sliding around.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements

These mats do not require any special maintenance or cleaning techniques. Rubber and foam mats will not absorb water or urine, which makes them ideal for use in the horse stall.

Most of the time, those caring for the horses can simply sweep the mats to remove hay, scoop any feces, and rinse the mats to remove dirt and urine. If desiring a more thorough cleaning, customers can mop the top of the rubber mats using warm water and a neutral pH cleaning solution.
