horse floatOne of the projects we see a lot of at Leens Building Supplies is horse float construction and restoration.

Our hardwood formply is perfect for the job because of it’s strength and waterproof qualities. While it is a little more expensive than other kinds of ply, it will last a lot longer – making it a good investment for your float. Because it’s been designed for wet conditions it means that it will easily withstand anything your horse throws at it.

Hardwood formply is a premium quality plywood made of selected wood species based on density, bending strength, impact resistance and finish characteristics. It’s manufactured to have an A-grade surface on both sides, with no core gaps and permanent waterproof A-bond glue, and a common black colour overlay finish giving it extra protection.

The Leens Building Supplies team will be more than happy to explain sizes, thicknesses, as well as the possibility of using off-cut sheets.

Steel & Fasteners

Fasteners suitable for screwing the formply to the steel framing are available as are a range of steel sections for various repairs or construction.

Non-Slip Rubber Matting

Non-Slip Rubber Matting is also available and is great to fit over the floor of the float to prevent the horse from slipping and protects the floor as well.
