Our steel constructions are also ideal for large riding arenas, where considerable amounts of stress will be placed on the weight carrying parts of the structure. Depending on the steel manufacturing process, different steel types have different properties. At SMC Steel Structures, we always hand pick our steel types to make sure that each part of your riding arena is constructed using optimal steel quality. Parts that will hold up a structure will, for instance, be made from super strong steel, while panels need to be lightweight and resilient towards long time wear-and-tear, and will be selected accordingly. When purchasing your arena from SMC Steel Structures, you’ll receive a safe, long-lasting riding arena at an affordable price.
Historically, riding arenas were typically made out of wood. Today, more and more horse lovers opt instead for steel when constructing their riding arenas, since steel is fireproof and resilient towards a wide range of parasite attacks, including mold, mildew, termites and carpenter bees. Fires in wooden arenas can easily turn into disasters for horses as well as for riders and spectators, especially when highly flammable straw or grass is used as substrate. There are many instances where fires in wooden structures have managed to spread to nearby buildings, including stables. A steel structure is fire proof and our high-quality enclosed riding arenas will often be able to contain a fire until the fire department arrives.
At SMC Steel Structures, we pride ourselves in providing horse keepers with steel riding arenas that are highly suited for the weather conditions in their particular area.
