Compare Aluminum Stalls
Steel vs Aluminum Horse Stalls
Steel stalls always rust. Paint, galvanize coating, galvalume and powder coating can’t stop rust. They only slow it down. Horses chew; equipment scratches bars & rails and rusting starts. Once rusting starts, it’s only a matter of time before an investment in steel is destroyed. ARC stalls have aluminum grills that never rust.
Competitive stalls come only with the thin wall bar shown. ARC offers 2 choices — our standard heavy duty or optional Beam-Brace bar internally strengthened with engineered beams.
- ARC bars are much heavier making them stronger.
- ARC bars use a harder alloy further enhancing their strength.
- ARC bars are spaced closer together to be safer for your horses.
ARC stall bars are better in many ways (see comparison photo below)
Once you have made the decision to buy aluminum, how do ARC aluminum stalls compare? Check competitive products (see photo above) with a bar wall thickness of only .050. ARC Heavy-Duty stall bars are .073. That’s 44% heavier, and our high-strength, high-temper alloy adds an additional 25% to the strength.
You may also choose the optional Beam-Brace bar. The .150 internal beams are the ideal way to get massive additional strength.
