New Macro Texture flooring throughout the equestrian center’s two barn areas.
South Point Arena and Equestrian Center partnered with VSS International, Inc. and Ergon Asphalt & Emulsions to install a custom, macro texture flooring throughout the equestrian center’s two barn areas, which was designed to replace more than 100,000 square feet of flooring with a non-skid surface that increases the safety for the horses.
“We host more than 42 weeks of equestrian events per year and have over 1,200 horse stalls in our equestrian facility, so the safety of our equine guests is our top priority and we are always looking for ways to improve their overall experience,” said South Point Arena General Manager, Steve Stallworth. “When we first met with the team from VSS International and Ergon & Asphalt, we knew we would be working with the best team in the industry. Together, we assessed the current flooring and identified a new flooring foundation that would create a safer travel zone for our horses. Now our new flooring offers a texturized surface that will reduce the risk of injury that could be caused by wet or slick surfaces.”
The macro texture flooring is made up of a custom mixture that was specially designed in a laboratory prior to application to ensure the proper proportioning and application process was used. The mixture is comprised of a very hard, black volcanic aggregate that originates from the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains that is mixed with a super-polymerized asphalt emulsion material. In order to ensure the flooring mixture was properly created, VSS International’s installation process involved on-site mixing of several key material components to produce the final product, which was spread and finished by hand to guarantee the highest quality of workmanship and finished product.
