Horse trailer - Wall cladding, partitions and anti-slip protection
Foamlite® sheets: For efficient, safe, stress-free horse transport
Whether going to a tournament, on holiday or to the vet – everyone has to transport their horse from time to time. However, often such transportation is stressful for both the people and the horse. For this reason, manufacturers are constantly working to optimise their horse trailers and horse transporters. The objective: to improve comfort, safety and efficiency. We support manufacturers in the development of light and long-lasting horse trailers and transporters with our lightweight construction material, Foamlite®.
Wall liner / interior walls, door cladding, anti-slip protection and partitions for horse trailers and transporters
Foamlite® - lightweight material:
Foamlite® is a closed-pore foamed plastic that combines low weight with high mechanical stability. Foamlite® sheets:
Optimise the load capacity of your transport vehicle
Are robust and durable
Have a high-quality appearance
Wall cladding, door cladding and partitions
Manufacturers of horse trailers use Foamlite® to produce very light and robust:
Wall cladding / liner / interior walls
Horse transporters / horse trucks
Product range – Foamlite®
Foamlite® sheets are available for cladding transport vehicles in many different formats, thicknesses, colours:
Sheet thicknesses: 6 – 21 mm
Widths: up to 2000 mm
Lengths: According to customer needs, theoretically unlimited, no waste
Surface: Surface grained on both sides with high scratch resistance possible
Foamlite® – properties
As a closed-pore foamed material, Foamlite® has a low density of just 0.65 g/cm³. Foamlite® is almost 30 percent lighter than comparable compact sheets. With their low weight, lightweight construction elements made of Foamlite® make a contribution towards weight reduction and therefore to the fuel efficiency of your horse trailers and horse transporters.
Good insulation propertiese
Air pockets in the foam core offer good thermal insulation and soundproofing. Lightweight construction elements made of Foamlite® help to regulate the temperature in horse trailers and horse transporters and therefore help to improve the animals' well-being.
Foamlite® has high mechanical stability, scratch and shock resistance and therefore has a very long service life.
High resistance to UV radiation, weather and moisture
Foamlite® include high UV and weather resistance and are also very resistant to moisture, which makes it suitable for long-term outdoor use.
Foamlite® sheets are available as a slip-resistant option with a "cubic grain" surface – tested in accordance with DIN 51130-R10. In horse trailers and horse transporters, the slip-resistant surface offers a high level of grip for both people and animals.
Foamlite® is available with a smooth or double-sided grained surface with high scratch resistance. Wall liner, door cladding and partitions made of Foamlite® have a long-lasting high-quality appearance.
Easy to work with
Foamlite® sheets can be worked on using conventional tools for wood and metal. The material is also easy to screw and rivet. We have extensive experience in the reliable mounting of our boards using various fastening elements. Contact us. Foamlite® is also very easy to weld.
Low-maintenance – easy to clean
Foamlite® sheets make a contribution towards a high standard of hygiene and therefore to animal health: Foamlite® is easy to clean with commercially available cleaning agents. The closed-pore foam core does not allow any material to penetrate the pores. Compared to conventional materials used in the market, Foamlite® offers many advantages when it comes to cleanliness and hygiene. Commercially available coated plywood sheets and textured, coated board can quickly become scratched and absorb moisture and dirt. This can lead to swelling and rotting.
Very high abrasion resistance
In horse trailers and horse transporters, walls, doors and kick plates have to withstand a great deal of mechanical wear and tear in the long term. Tests in our in-house materials laboratory show that in comparison with tested conventional textured, coated board sheets that are often used in horse trailers, Foamlite® sheets have significantly higher abrasion resistance.
Foamlite® has a "built-in" hinge. All that is required is a 90 degree milled V-notch. This means it is very easy to make doors with V-grooves, for example. This saves time in the manufacturing process and eliminates additional material costs for hinges, screws and rivets.
