Our complete riding arena packages are suitable for indoor or outdoor use and can also be applied to paddocks, turning areas, stables and suchlike. Entry level maneges (or menages) are the most popular, specifically designed for leisurely, private use several times a week. For details on installation and maintenance see our applications page. Across the market clients find that 650gsm Non-Woven Geotex is regularly specified for all manner of riding arenas and horse maneges, but this is over-specifying for the job. Unless your arena needs to achieve the highest of standards and will be used for competitions and suchlike, lower grades of geotextile membrane are perfectly efficient.
For a 20 x 40m arena we provide two full rolls of geotextile membrane, covering 900 square metres in total. This allows for 100sqm of overlap. The recommended practice is to use a woven geotextile above the drainage layer and non-woven above the stone/aggregate, below the silica sand or chosen surface material. Occasionally, clients may opt not to use geotex in the base layer.
This package includes:
- 2nr Rolls of 4.5m x 100m Non-Woven Geotex 100gsm
- 2nr Rolls of 4.5m x 100m Woven Geotec 78gsm
- 6nr Rolls of 100mm x 50m Single-Sided Cloth Tape
These products can all be bought individually through the above links.
As a team, our research over the years has demonstrated that simple geotex tape is the most effective and cost-effective joining method.
