Carpet shreds are thicker and bigger than GEOPAT® and have an average area of 5 cm². They are made from carpets (mainly from the auto industry) and have a gray/black color.
Owing to the fact that the surface of the chips is larger it provides incredibly high resistance while draining the water at the same time.
Carpet shreds are ideally suited for lunging pens, paddocks and trailing mills. They are also used on riding surfaces for dressage or for mere recreational purposes.
Carpet shreds can be blended with 5 kg per m² with drainage sand or used pure with 10 kg per m².
The great advantage is the fact they do not freeze thus allowing you to put your horses in the paddock or possibly lunge them during the entire winter period.

HANDLING CARPET SHREDS

If desired, the chips can be rolled with a steamroller afterwards.
The carpet shreds are shipped to you in pressed bales. Based on his experience, Ivan Peeters has a great command of expert knowledge and is in a position to help you make your selection.

WHAT TO WATCH OUT FOR...
There are two types of carpet shreds on the market:
chips with carpet on both sides
chips with a layer of plastic or foam on one side
The shreds with a plastic layer come also from the automotive industry and are appropriate as well. Their weight is only much higher, which makes these bales heavier and larger.
Carpet shreds can also be dumped separately from a container, which saves on packaging costs. Therefore the arena must be accessible with a large truck.
