- The upkeep and maintenance of the finish.

Be vigilant about touch-ups.
While Super Durable polyester powder coat paint is some of the longest
lasting paint available for horse stalls, it is still -- indeed -- a
paint. Even the most durable finishes are subject to horse cribbing and
other scrapes. Contact your stall manufacturer for touch-up paint to fix
these small scratches before they become bigger issues.
- Avoid scratches and scrapes with job-specific hardware.
Are you or others inadvertently hanging items such as halters or feed
bags on the painted equipment? Over time, the constant wearing can mar
or scratch the finish. Instead, add job-specific hardware, such a bridle
hooks and blanket bars to protect the finish.

toughest of all horse stall finishes, and is practically
maintenance-free. The modern, industrial feel of this type of finish can
