Controlling the moisture levels inside your riding stable by installing PVC panels

21 November, 2022

A riding stable should have adequate hygiene to ensure the horses’ good health. They can be extremely messy at times. Horses contribute maximum humidity to the stable interior by breathing; the rest is formed due to cleaning and bathing them. The optimal humidity level is 60 percent. You can imagine how the interior looks or smells when many horses reside together. The smell of horse food, poop, urine, saliva, and spillage on the walls cannot be avoided. But you can shield the walls and ceiling so that those do not affect much. 

Adequate ventilation and maintaining of the proper temperature inside the riding stable are important. The ventilation should happen in two processes. First, there should be an exchange of air where the existing stale air should be driven away and allow fresh air to fill in. Secondly, there should be distribution and circulation of fresh air. Apart from this, excess humidity along with pungent odor, can make the horses and the caretaker sick. Cleaning is unavoidable but that can be done to a certain extent. It would be a big benefit if you covered the walls and ceiling with moisture-resistant paneling

Customized riding stables wall panels are available in the market to cater to the specific requirements of the stable interior. Cover the walls and ceiling with ½-inch thick PVC sheets. The width of the Duramax panel is 16 inches and the length varies accordingly. Vinyl panels are completely waterproof, not letting any moisture settle on the walls and the ceiling.

The vinyl sheets’ surface is also covered with an antibacterial layer to prevent bacteria or mold from growing. This is essential to ensure that the horses remain in good health and active. Waterproofing and insulating the riding stable interior are the major steps. If you have old FRP panels installed that have almost damaged the walls, take them off and install new vinyl boards. 

Cleaning is a daily task to keep the stable, clean and fresh. Washing or cleaningthe floor surface is insufficient because the walls also require cleaning. Cleaning can affect the texture of the walls, making them rough and damp and the paint would chip off. It is not a good idea to clean or scrub and wash the walls daily. Instead, we suggest installing riding stables wall panels on the walls and the ceiling.

The boards have a smooth surface that attracts less dirt, impurities, and microorganisms. Vinyl boards are easy to clean and do not require daily maintenance. Gently wipe the surface of the boards with a moist cloth and apply mild cleaners. Washing the panels to eliminate excess dirt can be a good idea and you can do it as often as possible. There is no need to fear moisture or humidity will creep into the walls. 

Installing the PVC panels is a simple task. One local contractor can attach the vinyl boards to the walls in 7 to 8 hours. The PVC boards are attached to the studs. The panels have hidden screws or fasteners to facilitate simple installation. Vinyl boards have interlocking tongues and grooves that make the process easier. The boards are cut to shape and made ready before the installation. There is no investment in additional materials or labor charges. The vinyl boards do not have backers so moisture cannot go into the walls and ceiling. Once installed, the panels can last for a lifetime. They have a shelf-life of 45 to 50 years; sometimes, with better maintenance, they can last for 100 years. 

FRP panels are available in multiple colors but they fade out soon. Embrace white PVC panels from Duramax that will not tarnish or not get yellowish with time. White panels will make the stable interior look spacious and there will be no dark corners. You can use PVC grade color to paint the interior. 

Duramax boards are light-reflective, the panels can equally distribute the reflected light. Less number of lights are needed to light up the space. So you can save on your energy bills. No other type of wall and ceiling covering offers scope for savings. A riding stable might not have much light but this is an advantage for commercial kitchens, grow rooms and spaces that require adequate light.

They have a 1-hour Class A fire grade, odor control and chemical resistance. The boards are lightweight, so transportation is easy and inexpensive.
