Why Buy Horse Paddock Slabs from Paramount Materials?

  • We only sell the authentic Hahn Paddock Slab. We do not offer “no-name” or “knock-off” branded grids which can be subject to incorrect specs, reduced plastic density and subpar quality while providing a dangerous environment for horses and livestock.
  • We know how to get your order to you. Paddock slabs are large and heavy. When palletized and shipped some very specific guidelines must be followed to avoid damage to the grids and refused shipments. Because we have 5+ years of shipping this product we know exactly how to prepare the order for a successful delivery.

MUD CONTROL WITH MINIMAL SITE PREPARATION


Site prep can be complicated, expensive and labor intensive. With the mud control grid site preparation is greatly reduced as the grids can be placed directly on top of the ground. Leasing a property? Install the grids temporary and take them with you when you move instead of investing into a property that you do not own. Mud control grids not only eliminate mud but also provide a stable surface for horse, livestock and even passenger vehicle parking. Mud management grids are made from 100% recycled plastic so they can't rot and carry a 20 year product guarantee from Hahn Plastics.

"We put down the grids during a very wet spell and now the ground is frozen solid. The horses just love standing on them out of the mud. There are 2 wooden slabs built in which I can attach a full bale net to where needed. I'm going to buy some more for next winter especially for the gate ways. I've attached a photo showing how they are working great, I leave the scattered hay to give the horses more grip and to give the barefoot horses soft standing especially in the frozen weather."
-Susanne, Maple Ridge, BC



"We are using the grids for a wash area for the horses. These are really great, heavy duty, and definitely not rubber. They will keep all of us out of the mud when giving baths. I have already recommended the grids to several folks here in Kansas that are looking for mud management systems."
- Edith, Kansas, United States

LAYING INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1
Before installing the grids, a 2” gravel layer will improve support and drainage for very soft ground. A 2–4” layer of wood chips can also be used to create a flexible base.

Step 2
Mark out and level the installation area, filling any dips or depressions with granular material. For soil types like heavy clay, installing a non-woven needle-punched 3.5 oz geotextile (with 6” overlap) will prevent the gradual loss of infill material into the ground.

Step 3
Use a string line as a level and alignment guide (allowing for adjacent edging or fencing). Lay the grids along the line, leaving a ¼” gap between grids. Use the tabs on the Mud Control Grid edges for level alignment.

Step 4
It's best to stagger the grids for extra stability. To create a staggered bond, begin the second row with a half grid (grids can be cut with a skill or bench saw, just like hardwood). Lay the second row, leaving a ¼” gap between the first  row and between each new grid. Use the other half grid at the end of the row. Small adjustments to maintain alignment can be done with a lever.

Step 5
When the Mud Control Grids have been installed, the grid holes can be filled with permeable material. Coarse sharp sand is ideal or ¼–⅝” gravel can also be used. A ton of sand or gravel will fill around 140 grids (375 ft2). NB. If using gravel,  make sure all gravel is cleared from the surface before use.

Step 6
Mud Control Grids should always be used with a tread layer. For general use and especially for shod horses with all season stabling, we recommend a final 2–4” layer of riding sand or fine sand with 2% clay. Use a roller or plate vibrator to lightly compact the sand before use. Top up the sand each year to keep surfaces looking good and in top condition.

Other Mud Control Solutions

Paddock Slab

When you need a strong, heavy-duty mud grid, a Paddock Slab is a perfect choice. Paddock Slabs are specifically designed for horses and can withstand the full weight of a truck.

There are several other hard plastic pavers that are basically designed for vehicles that can support equestrian traffic but only as a secondary option. These products are designed for car tires which usually provide a load of 135 psi while hoof contact with the ground will give a load of 185 psi. This can cause pavers designed for vehicles to shatter leaving sharp edges and therefore decrease the needed support. Paddock Slabs are specifically designed for equestrian traffic and are ultra-reinforced to prevent shattering. The slabs are capable of flexing more than 10% without breaking.

Paddock Slabs are designed to last a very long time providing a reinforced mud-free paddock. Paddock Slabs are designed to last for decades to come with regular use.

Mud Management Grid

An LSG grid is made from flexible HDPE plastic. It’s designed to conform to sloped or uneven surfaces. For shipping purposes, the grid is compressed in the shape of a rectangle. It’s laid on the ground in the area where it will be installed and then staked down. When opened, the cell structure is revealed. The stakes are driven around the parameter to make sure the material will stay in place in order to keep its shape. Gravel is now added to the material to fill the cells. This is an important step because the strength of the surface relies on the strength of the infill which must be the correct type and size of the gravel used. Read through the installation guide for the correct instructions for installation and proper infill.

When installed correctly, the LSG grid will give you a mud-free surface that is very stable for all types of traffic. Because the fabric is absorbent, the surface will allow water to seep through and drain, as long as the site is capable of draining naturally.

Mud Control Grid

The Mud Control Grid is specifically designed to create a mud-free paddock and install very easily. These grids can be installed on top of the ground and over existing mud. These grids are strong enough to support horses, livestock, vehicles, and tractors. The surface is perforated for easy drainage. Also, the grids sit up off the ground to provide water storage underneath. The grids offer excellent interlocking to create larger mud-free surfaces.
