MSA Fibre-wax 

These semi or fully waxed surfaces are tailored for your requirements. They are Equisand with specific synthetic fibres added to provide structure, durability and consistancy.

MSA Fibremix  

This surface combination is becoming more popular in many yards, We do not recommend routine lunging on this surface though.   It's cost is in the same region as sand and rubber, which is a less sucessful combination in the South East as the best Equisands now available do not stand up so well under rubber chip.

This Fibremix surface is robust within its 150mm depth and is easy to maintain with our MSA HD Arena Groom.

Limited lunging is achievable. - Surface guide price ex works only £14.50/ sq m

The Fibres within the surface retain moisture well, insulate and cushion.

Our Sub Surface Irrigation Package. 

This surface will benefit from irrigation in a dry summer  - We recommend the economical installation of the sub surface  pourous pipe system usually installed at the time of the initial Arena installation. Water is supplied by mains pressure only (no tank  and pump systems involved) and moisture is absorbed from the pourous water pipes installed beneath the surface, all by capillary action  reducing evaporation. - Guide price £5/ sq m .   

MSA Fibre-wax 

This is our waxed surface designed for out door situations predominantly using our Fibretek Fibres mixed with Equisand with moulton wax added within a controlled mixing environment with our own unique blend data used to provide absolute consistency . This combination laid at 150mm deep is provided to create  the stability and consistancy required to keep this surface constantly durable throughout the seasons.  It is better suited to lunging and free reigning persuits. We can manipulate this blend to preference, to remain firm, or slightly looser to take a cut and reduce joint concusions.   Surface only guide price ex works  £27.50/ sq m

For Indoor Arena surface situations and higher intensity Lunging we would recomend a  higher wax and Fibre content, details on request .

We can ameliorate the surface to blend the fibres into the sand surface to create a moisture retentive and robust surface.
