Other Applications

We have a long established history of supplying horsebox manufacturers across the UK and Ireland with our range of equestrian products such as protective rub rail and end caps.

In recent years, we have used our expertise to furnish major studs and stables with larger profiles to act as anti-casting strips. In order to assist horses in righting themselves with a greatly reduced risk of injury to both themselves and others.

Equestrian Anti-cast profiles and wall protection for stables and stud farms

Stable Wall Protection

Wilks ‘D’ profile is the perfect solution to the problem of casting. Strategic positioning on each stable wall enables the horse to gain purchase with their hooves allowing them to better position themselves so that they may roll over and stand freely.

The profile is manufactured using PVC which provides a durable and lasting product. The material lends itself well to the stable environment providing excellent levels of protection which can withstand repeated knocks.

A Safer Solution

The advantage of using our D profile over alternatives such as wood is that after installation there is no further maintenance required and more importantly there is no danger of splintering after impact which in itself could lead to injury to the horse especially if unattended at the time.

In the event of a cast horse it is always prudent to contact your vet to discuss the circumstances, especially if it is evident that they have been cast for a long period.
