Horse stables have different requirements and these must be structurally sound, durable, fire, wind and weather resistant, and capable of housing animals weighing nearly a ton. When selecting the type of building, climate, and other factors should be considered capability in housing a riding horse or breeding stock. To provide a safe and warm environment for housing horses and other livestock, the best type of building is a steel building barn. Steel barn buildings offer a lot of advantages as compared to traditional buildings, which include speed of construction, durability, insurance benefits, safety, cost and convenience.
With pre-engineered steel barn buildings, a barn made of steel can be manufactured, delivered and easily erected, that can be done in just a matter of few months as compared to six to nine months time required in building a structure made of traditional materials. Unlike wooden barns, steel horse stables will not crack, rot or deteriorate, they are free from insects, and less likely to house vermins. Steel barn buildings doesn’t need painting, no replacement of rotten boards, no replacement of roof tiles and more time enjoying riding for at least twenty years. In contrast to traditional wooden barns’ costs, fire and property insurance premiums are much cheaper owing to the fire resistant nature of steel barns and buildings. Your horses and other livestock are safer and secure in a steel barn or building, because it won’t splinter when kicked, and there’s no exposure to wood for horses to bite or chew, thus concerns about injuries or ‘cribbing’ caused by ingestion of pre-treated fragments of wood are eliminated. The construction costs of a steel barn or building is lower, and same with the maintenance costs as compared to traditional barns. As compared to other building materials, steel is the best and cheapest option in the long run because of the expected lifespan of steel buildings along with zero maintenance. With the use of steel, it’s more convenient adding extra features such as doors, feeders, dividers, and watering options. Steel partitions are easy to install, providing spaces for storing feed and track or equipment, as well as building kits needed for a fully functional horse barn, which can be customized for the number of stalls and additional features.
