Painted Steel, Galvanized and Mesh Horse Stall Kits

Determining what you need to build your horse stalls can be a bit overwhelming at first. The horse stall building guide below will hopefully make this task a bit easier............

row of horse stall fronts

Kit style horse stalls get their strength from support posts set into the surface of your barn floor. Normally, we suggest the depth of the support posts to be no less than 30" deep. Support posts should be at least 4" x 4" or larger. The support posts must be set on BOTH sides of the door opening as shown on the image below:

horse stall support post placement

The opening for the doorway should measure approximately 4' center to center for the support posts. The additional support post placement will vary depending on if you are building 10' fronts, 12' fronts or larger. In many instances, you might be able to use the existing barn walls as walls for you horse stalls without having to install additional stall walls:

building horse stalls with existing barn walls

Depending on the construction of your barn, you may find that the existing walls are not suitable for being used as horse stall walls. In this situation, you will need to install adequate stall walls suitable for horses:

Our kit style horse stall components give you excellent flexibility in modifying the stalls to fit your individual needs.

We suggest the use of tongue and groove 2 x 6 inch lumber for maximum strength and general appearance. Tongue and groove interlocks with each board to prevent gapping when humidy levels change in the barn.

 Horse Stall Front (Including Door) 11 ea. 2" x 6" Tongue and Groove Boards
 Grilled Side Wall 10 ea. 2" x 6" Tongue and Groove Boards
 Solid Side or Back Wall 17 ea. 2" x 6" Tongue and Groove Boards

Frequently Asked Questions:

 Living in Florida, everything rusts badly with the salt air in the coastal area. What type of horse stalls are best for me?  Our galvanized stalls would be your best choice for highly corrosive enviroments.
 Can I mix and match different types of stall pieces like galvanized wall pieces with painted steel grills?  Yes, our stall components can be interchanged to get the look and strength you need.
 Which of your horse stall grills is the strongest?   Our painted steel stall grills are the strongest as the upper and lower channels are welded to the grill bars.
 Why don't you weld your galvanized stall grill sections?  Rust starts at the welds on almost everything. To weld our galvanized grills would be defeating of purpose of the corrosive protection of the material itself.
 What type of rollers do you use in your door hardware kits?  We use an enclosed top track to keep dust and dirt from settling into the track and binding the rollers, plus a high strength thermoplastic roller system for long-life.
 How can I make foaling stalls that can be removed easily?  Using our wall channels, you can attach them with the "U" facing each other at each end where you want your wall and simply slide your lumber into the wall channels.
 What is my best choice for not rusting but high strength?  Our hot-dip zinc coated galvanized steel stall components are a great combination of strength and corrosion resistance.
 Will your support post horse stalls work for Alpacas? We do not need them to be as tall as a horse stall normally is.  Yes, using our support post style of horse stalls, you can make the stall front lower than a horse would need by not using as many boards, this would lower the wall height. Alpacas are social animals and should not be confined where they can not see each other.
