for Riding Arena Construction
Separation layers are installed on top of existing, load-bearing sub-surfaces or bearing layers made of recycled gravel or broken stone (0-45, 5-32 or 0-32). The load-bearing layer needs to be consolidated and stabilised.
A separation layer is recommended to prevent any mixing of the load-bearing subsurface and the footing layer. The separation layer must be trickle-proof vis-à-vis the material of which the layer above (= footing layer) and below (= load-bearing layer) are comprised.
To the greatest extent possible, the separation layer should filter out sand and fine particles, yet, at the same time, must incorporate the necessary properties to permit rain water to run off without hindrance or even, as in the case of perforated riding arena matting, to store a certain volume of precipitation.
In addition, in order to create a stable arena surface in conjunction with the footing layer, the separation layer needs to be shock absorbing and slip-proof.
Separation layers may consist of the following materials:
- Perforated matting with water reservoir
- Pre-stitched and pre-fabricated separation layer textile (not chaff!)
- Mineral-based separation layers
Depending on your individual specifications, we can supply the optimum separation layer and ground reinforcement, whether you require a riding arena for hobby, all-weather or professional purposes. You are also welcome to install the various materials yourself.
