Genan rubber granulate is suitable as top layer for both indoor and outdoor horse arenas (dressage and jumping), paddock, roundpen and walkers. The rubber granulate provides a resilient, shock-absorbing surface, offering less strain to joints and tendons – and reducing hoof wear. And should the rider fall off, a softer landing is ensured on the elastic rubber layer.
In comparison to horse arenas with either grass, sand or wood chip surfaces, conditions are far better on both rainy days and on days with temperatures below freezing, which makes rubber granulate perfect for outdoor arenas. Genan rubber granulate excels as the purest rubber granulate product on the market – being virtually dust-free and free from steel contamination. Furthermore, rubber granules withstand rough weather conditions better than both fibre and wood chip materials.
Climate-wise, horse arenas with rubber granulate also have great positive impact; yet, as is also the case in many other contexts, e.g. in connection with the handling of batteries and household plastics, there may be environmentally negative effects, if rubber granulate is not handled correctly.
