We supply geotextile membranes for new riding arenas and arenas refurbishments. Membranes perform two different, but very important roles in the construction of equestrian riding arenas and training gallops.
The bottom membrane serves two purposes, firstly to stabilise the levelled ground and secondly to separate the clean drainage layer from the earth. A plastic woven geotextile membrane is normally used for this, due to its strength and relative low cost.
Non-Woven MembranesThe second role is to separate the riding arena surface from the drainage layer, stopping the surface being washed into the stone and stone contaminating the surface. This requires a non-woven or fabric type membrane due to its superior drainage abilities and non-slip qualities.
This membrane layer should have its joins sealed either by heat, double sided tape or glue. This stops the arena surface creeping under the joins and so lifting them. Contact us today for a free quote.
