Stalls and stables are crucial components for any large animal. These provide shelter and housing and must be a suitable environment. Stalls and stables have many designs, but basic features include security, comfort and functionality.
Benefits of Structural Recycled Plastic Lumber
Recycled HDPE plastic lumber is a long-lasting building material that won’t rot, mold, splinter or crack. Plastic lumber also includes deflection properties, making it more flexible and better able to absorb energy and impact from large animals. HDPE plastic lumber can withstand extreme heat, cold and moisture without breaking down over time. It is an environmentally-friendly wood-alternative that doesn’t require chemical-treatments and is inherently resistant to chemicals, salt, oils, fungus and insects. It also doesn’t absorb moisture or harbor bacteria, making it easy to clean. It secures, drills and cuts like traditional wood and even comes in a tongue in groove profile for fast and easy installation.

Why Traditional Building Materials Fall Short
Traditional wood is the most common building material that is used for stalls and stables. While wood is strong, it doesn’t necessarily perform the greatest for outdoor weather conditions. When animals crib and chew on stalls, if ingested, splinters can damage the animal’s digestive system. Wood can also harbor bacteria which can be life-threatening if ingested by animals when they chew on it. It can degrade over time from moisture, causing the need for repairs and replacement. Not to mention the maintenance time and cost to keep the wooden stalls looking fresh and new. Instead of dealing with repairs, choose a long-term solution with plastic lumber.
