Most Common Product Questions For ground protection mat at Greatmats:
What about drainage?
Water and liquids will drain between the interlocks and over the edges of the rubber tiles over time. Its best to continue to use hay on a regular basis as this help to absorb moisture.
My stalls are 11'3'' x 11' 10'' Can I cut these? and if so how? Thanks. Robin
Yes the rubber tiles can be cut to fit using a sharp utility knife or a reciprocating saw.
can this flooring be used on a garage floor?
Sure the rubber can be installed over any hard flat surface. However rubber is not recommended for parking cards.
We are restoring an old barn. The stalls are slightly sloped, grooved concrete with about a foot of raised apron around the sides. The inside-apron measurements are 86'' by 84''. Not sure if we should order mats to snugly fit inside the apron, or put wooden planks or crushed stone down and put the mats over the entire stall floor. Your advice is appreciated.
Either would work, if you raise the surface up to match the surrounding apron with crushed stone, then water would not tend to go into the lower portion of the area.
My stall have concrete floors. Will moisture collect under the mats and create a problem?
Rubber can trap moisture underneath, which can create mold or mildew. Shavings should be used to reduce moisture entering the seams. Routine cleaning is a good idea over concrete. Further from the mat mfg. Yes, there may be dampness under the mats. If the cement is not level or has dips, liquid may pool. This will not be a problem as our mats are insoluble and are antibacterial & antifungal. Users can seal the cement prior to putting the mats down to prevent moisture from coming up through the cement.
are the outside edges smooth with no interlocking?
Yes, the kit will provide corner and border mats that will provide a smooth non interlocking perimeter of the 12x12 ft kit when finished.
Do you have one peace stall mats
We offer many interlocking and straight edged options for horse stalls. We do not offer large, full stall, one piece options.
How do you lay a stall mat?

Can these mats be placed over limestone screenings in the stall?
Stall mats can be placed over concrete, asphalt, wood or any level well-compacted surface. You can also use limestone fines, just make sure the fines do not exceed 1/8'' in size. Fines are easy to work with, compact well, provide good drainage, and stand up well to freeze/thaw conditions.
do they smell?
Yes. These stall mats are high odor. With ventilation and cleaning, the odor will dissipate.
