Stick Sided Horseboxes
The traditional construction of the stick sided horsebox has stood the test of time and is still as popular as ever (perhaps mainly due to the lower cost). The look of the container with the visible steel frame tends to be associated with hunting boxes, but extras such as a living area, tack locker, or extra ramp can be incorporated into a Tristar stick sided box, just as they can with the smooth sided.
Construction and Design
Tristar stick sided horseboxes are built from a 50 x 25 x 2.5mm steel frame with aluminium sheeting on the inside. The luton area over the cab is designed to allow the cab be tilted for ease of access to the engine.
The horse area is lined with 12mm plywood up to 4', covered with 12mm STOKBOARD. The floor is constructed with 2" thick tanalised timber.
The partitions are fully adjustable, with telescopic fastenings so they can be positioned at different angles or widths to suit your needs. Our usual design has a built-in head divider and is half-height solid with a rubber skirt, to allow for the horses' legs to be spread for balance.
Opening windows with protection bars are fitted on the nearside of the box, and there is also a 6' grooms door positioned on this side.
The ramp has industrial carpet and grip rods as standard with a choice of smooth loading doors or wicket type gates.
The price for the standard stick sided box includes the steel work painted in your choice of colour, with the aluminium left natural.
