Sure, selecting stall fronts is one of the exciting parts of designing your barn. However, selecting the right design for your stall partitions can really make or break the functionality of your stalls.
The design of your partitions should be based on the temperament of your horses, the primary use of your stalls, and the climate in your area. Read about several stall partition options below, and check out the article at the bottom of this page for photos and ideas for each style.
1. Grill or Crosshatch Top / Solid Bottom
This style offers some cross ventilation through the grills, as well as the potential for socialization among stall neighbors.
2. Grill or Crosshatch Section with Privacy Panel / Solid Bottom
This style still offers some cross ventilation, but also allows great privacy for the horses, especially during dinnertime.
3. Solid Panel
Solid partitions can either be built into your barn structure by your builder or they can be created by Lucas Equine using a component or full panel system. Solid panel partitions can be created from wood or masonry. They provide the ultimate in privacy.
4. Full Crosshatch or Grill / Crosshatch
A fully ventilated panel offers the ultimate in airflow and durability. These can either be made entirely of Lucas Equine's super sturdy crosshatch mesh: 5/16-inch solid steel rods, welded at every single joint, or with a grill on top and crosshatch mesh on the bottom.
