When compared to standard rubber stall mats, ComfortStall is at a huge advantage because it is completely sealed, which means there are no escape routes for urine, muck and bedding. This keeps everything on top where you can see it and easy remove, as opposed to hiding underneath creating an unhygienic environment, where urea has the opportunity to react with bacteria and off-gas as the respiratory irritant Ammonia.


Aside from the lower cost, ComfortStalls cushioning reduces the need for your horses bedding, which means mucking out takes less time, with less bedding to sort through. This reduced need for horse bedding also makes giving the stall a full clean and disinfect quick and simple, helping to create foundations for cleaner air quality in the stall. In addition to the benefits for the respiratory system, the supportive orthopaedic foam helps care for their musculoskeletal health and provides ideal conditions to rest and recover after exercise.

ComfortStall FAQ's

Are horse stall mats toxic?

ComfortStall rubber topcoat features five layers of non-toxic vulcanised sheeting. Crumb rubber featured in geotextile flooring can be toxic and all rubber is toxic when burnt.

How many stall mats do I need?

While most rubber stall matting requires multiple sheets, ComfortStall’s IronClad TopCover is installed as a single piece of material that you can easily custom cut to your stall with a boxcutter. The impermeable surface allows for a completely sealed stall floor with no escape routes for urine, muck, or bedding.

How do I install ComfortStall?

ComfortStall is a self-fit product. Detailed installation instructions can be found here or you can view our installation video below.


Do you need to use bedding with rubber stall matting? If so, what is the best bedding to use?

While standard rubber stall matting offers limited cushion and requires a considerable amount of bedding to provide support to your horse, ComfortStall on its own gives your horse all the cushion he requires. With ComfortStall, we suggest using only a small amount of absorbent bedding where your horse most frequently urinates to soak up any liquids.

Do rubber stall mats absorb urine?

While standard rubber Standard rubber stall mats do not absorb urine, but the gaps in between the mats allow for urine to seep through to the subsurface where it tends to pool. This creates the perfect environment for urea to react with bacteria and off-gas as the respiratory irritant ammonia. Since ComfortStall is both impermeable and fully sealed, urine stays on top of the TopCover and is easily removed when mucking out or with a quick wash or sweep.

Can you use ComfortStall as horse float flooring?

Yes, ComfortStall is a great horse float flooring option, it can also be fitted up the walls. We would however advise to not fit studs or allow a horse with studs fitted to stand on ComfortStall, as this could cause damage to the TopCover. Standard nails and road studs are safe to stand on ComfortStall. 

How do I muck out a stall with rubber matting?

Remove the droppings and wet bedding with a shavings fork or small shovel. ComfortStall on its own gives your horse all the cushion he requires. However, we suggest using a small amount of absorbent bedding where your horse most frequently urinates to soak up any liquids. If using bedding, remove the wet shavings and sweep out. If you are not using bedding the urine can be swept or washed out of the stable. This should only take 5-10 mins.

Will ComfortStall puncture or tear?

ComfortStall’s IronClad TopCover is incredibly durable and will not puncture or tear easily. However, we would advise to not fit studs or allow a horse with studs fitted to stand on ComfortStall, as this could cause damage to the TopCover. Standard nails and road studs are safe to stand on ComfortStall.

Are rubber stall mats slippery?

Rubber stall mats tend to be slippery when wet. However, ComfortStall’s IronClad TopCover is an anti-slip material. Additionally, the cushion provided by the orthopaedic foam causes the horse to sink slightly into the surface for additional grip.
