Arenas & Gallops
PVC Equestrian Surfaces
Through the recycling of both jelly filled and dry scrap cables, Arenas & Gallops — the equestrian department here at Universal Recycling — provide plastic granules for the equestrian surface industry. These granules are of the PVC variety and are known as PVC granules, but we also supply the petroleum jelly polythene type, which are known by our patented name, Vasa Track Ltd. Other granules we produce are rubber granules recycled from used tyres.
Our PVC granules are a cost-effective way of stabilising a sand surface or gallop, and are a by-product produced from our cable granulation plants. When the cables are granulated, the metal produced is separated from the PVC via an air separation process, and then further separated via a vibrating wet table, which also washes the granules ensuring they are dust free.
Vasa Track Ltd
Rubber Equestrian Surfaces
Vasa Track Ltd is a petroleum jelly covered polythene riding surface produced from jelly filled cables through a water separation granulation plant. These are used to create a springy and stable surface when mixed with sand. It creates excellent stability due to the petroleum jelly in the polythene, and is used in many arenas, gallops and all weather race tracks throughout the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
Rubber granules are a very economical and environmentally friendly addition to an equestrian arena as they create stability when mixed into a traditional sand surface. It also proves that recycled rubber has a great use as opposed to sending it to landfill!
