Wash Stall Walls

  2009 Cherry Hill   Copyright Information

 

 

Hi Cherry,

Your advice is invaluable as we are in the process of renovating our barn. You mention using 1/16 inch FRP walls for your wash stall. Can you be more specific with a product name and/or supplier?

Thank you,
Lori

Dear Lori,

Horse HousingHere is an excerpt from our book, Horse Housing, where we talk about wall materials:

"Fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) is a type of fiberglass that is much less brittle than the type used for siding and roofing. It is available in flat panels (sold as "bath panel" in some home improvement stores) usually less than 1/8" thick. Panels have an embossed surface and come in a variety of colors. FRP is extremely tough and when applied over a sturdy sheathing panel can take the direct kick of a horse without damage."

We purchase the FRP for our wash stall at our local building store. We glued it to the 3/4" OSB (oriented strand board) sheathing that makes the walls of the wash rack. After 15 years of washing horses we've never had a problem with the FRP and it looks as good as the day we put it in !

Your Horse Barn DVDRead more about the properties of FRP.

Here is a video clip from our DVD, Your Horse Barn, that shows our wash stall with FRP on the walls:
