Get a better trailer floor with APHA Xtras

Did you know that on an unprotected surface bacteria can double in number every 20 minutes? That’s what’s happening on a traditional trailer floor covered with shavings and bedding as you haul your Paint down the highway to explore new trails, go to the vet clinic or compete.

Bacteria are multiplying unchecked on your trailer floor can seriously affect your horse’s immune system, too—the stress of hauling can easily compromise a horse’s natural immune defenses. Combine that lowered immunity with exposure to inhaled particles, like the dirt, dust and bacteria whirling inside your trailer, and your horse might be susceptible to serious illnesses. 

Polylast™ could help keep your horses healthy and give you greater peace of mind. 

Installing Polylast flooring in your trailer is one of the easiest ways to reduce illness risk. This unique, recycled rubber flooring system makes horse trailers more comfortable and cleaner, helping horses perform better after long hauls. Here’s how:

  • There is no need for bedding or shavings, saving you money. Your horses breathe cleaner air and stay cleaner.
  • Microban® Antimicrobial is infused into Polylast during the manufacturing process to help prevent the growth of damaging bacteria.
  • Polylast is permanently bonded to your trailer floor so there is never any need to pull and clean mats. Simply rinse your trailer out with a hose after your trips, and it will be clean, fresh and ready to go. No need to disinfect with harsh chemicals, either.
  • Your trailer floor is protected from urine and other corrosive liquids.
  • Your horses actually perform better because they are more comfortable and less stressed because the Polylast floor is extremely slip resistant and cushioned.

But Polylast isn’t just for trailers; they proudly make several types of equine flooring in the USA, including:

  • Polylast Comfort and Safety Flooring, the perfect solution for wash racks, aisle ways, trailer flooring, and any other locations.
  • Polylast Super Duty Flooring, a non-porous product that is great for your reproduction lab.
  • Polylast Stall Lining, the ultimate in comfort and safety while greatly reducing odor, bedding costs and labor and at lower cost than other stall liner systems.
  • Polylast SurfaceGuard™ with Microban Antimicrobial Technology, a poured-in-place, multi-layer stall lining system that eliminates many of the challenges associated with keeping horses in a confined area.
