FUSION STABILIZING FIBRES WHAT THEY DO

Stabilizing fibres need to do one basic job but actual fact do a lot more.
Main Role –

  • -To stabilize and secure the sand from too much movement through its binding qualities.
    Retain Moisture.
  • – The fibres holds onto moisture longer than free draining sand can do alone.
    Reduce Maintenance.
  • – As an effect of the stabilization, there is less movement and kickback from the surface.
    Reduce Injury.
  • – Reduces risk of over stretching & straining of the horse as can happen in loose/dry sand.

 


DO NOT BE DUPED – Why choose Equestrian Surfaces Fusion Fibres over others on the market. You may be told that others supply the same Fibres as Equestrian Surfaces however that is not possible as we manufacture our own Equestrian Fibres, through the refining process of a select choice of Polypropylene,nylon,polyester Synthetic Fibres. We can guarantee that our product is 100% manmade fibres and has no wool content, unlike other imported fibres which could be what is know as 80/20 mix. Although initially those fibre/wool mixes will bind well, in time the wool content will rot and you will see your fibre/money disappear before your eyes.


Also quality of the fibre and cut length are very important – Our fibres are the correct length for equestrian use. If the fibres are too long, they can result in increased tripping of the horse, if they are too short, it will result in the product not binding enough to give a satisfactory result.

 

We are the only Equestrian Fibre manufacturer/supplier in Ireland and the UK that has Environmental agency approval that our fibre products are fit for purpose for the Equine Industry We have also just achieved ISO9001 @ our Uk manufacturing facility for the production of specialized equestrian fibres this guarantees that the specialized fibre range we produce meets the strict quality controls of this mark .

We are also EU compliant meaning our fibres are environmentally friendly and can cause not harm or leeching into the ground.

The works included us designing and installing the irrigation system to fit in with the close boarding on the new arena.

As you can see in the pictures we work to the very highest standard to try and achieve the quality expected by our client without the irrigation system being compromised.

We will post more pictures over the coming days through to completion.

Emerald Internationals requirements where that the Equestrian Facility had to have the best riding surface for competition use without the use of waxand with this in mind we set about developing a new riding surface, The blend of surface is made with a multi washed, specific grading of fine white silica sand and a blend of several of our synthetic fibres to produce a surface with high shear strength yet retain  a cushion for damping impact forces.

We have designed the surface around top level showjumping after listening to several riders on their requirements and the best type of ground required for high level competitions.

We worked closely with the sand providers to acheive the correct gradings of silica sand to maximise its use with our fibres. Before blending and installing the surface at Emerald International we mixed several different blends at our manufacturing yard over the course of several months before we achieved what we now call Cushion Track Elite.

We have also achieved a surface that drains efficiently yet has good moisture retention reducing the irrigation required in dry periods of weather.
