Benefits of Solariums

  • Solariums can help improve your horses performance and condition. The heat energy penetrates the skin into the underlying muscle and helps stimulate blood circulation, this improves muscle elasticity, therefore helping recovery from and reduction of injuries.
  • A pre exercise warm up under the solarium will relax muscles and improve training performance by increasing blood circulation.
  • Solariums help your horse to recover quicker after exercise as the stimulated circulation allows the muscles to absorb blood sugars more quickly and speeds up the elimination of waste products from them.
  • Solariums speed up the drying and warming process before and after exercise or washing down and will add shine to the coat.

We have developed our solarium to meet ever increasing customer demands for high quality combined with competitive pricing. The combination of a fully enclosed housing, IR lamps and air vents provide an even and pleasant temperature over your horse. The lamps are mounted through laser cut holes set back into the main steel body avoiding your horse making contact with the hot lamps.

All lamp fittings are manufactured from quality ceramic, not thermo-plastic, giving greater longevity. Our solarium units are constructed with a mild steel frame and aluminum box sections to make the unit as light as possible. There are 15 IR bulbs in each unit to achieve the maximum effect for your horse. All internal wiring is fire resistant to 110˚C and each section is fitted with 10 air vents to prevent overheating.

We offer a comprehensive range of accessories including UV lamps, timers, solarium lift units, each individually designed to meet your specific needs.

At Equine Engineering we offer a full installation and after sales service.
