Feb 3 2017 MD Barnmaster Safety Features
MD Barnmaster Building Systems provide your horses and livestock a safe and healthy environment. It’s a major reason my company represents their quality building systems.
Do you want the safest barn in the world for your horses? So do we.
That’s why MDBarnmaster is our only choice for barns and stall systems. Mice and horses chew. Wood dries. Fires happen. And way more frequently than any of us would like. Plus, wood harbors bacteria. It breaks when kicked, and pops nails and screws, potentially injuring your horse and creating an unwelcome length to the honey-do list.
Finally, it looks great only when brand-new or historically old. All the time in between, it’s increasingly dangerous and hard-used looking.
House your horses in an MD Barnmaster, and you’ll be amazed how much healthier and happier they are on a daily basis. This is horse housing the way it’s meant to be, taking account of their natures and their needs, and providing a safe, comfortable, durable barn for them to thrive.
Zero Fire Spread Rating
Because steel encases the only wood (fuel) used in constructing an MD Barnmaster barn, oxygen cannot reach the fuel. Fire needs both fuel and oxygen. Any fire in your MD Barnmaster barn will burn out without spreading across your barn like it will in a wood structure. Thanks to the 14-gauge, double-roll formed C-channel encasing each 4×8 laminated wall panel. Unfortunately, we have all heard of the horrible barn fire disasters that occur in the horse industry. Owning a safe MDBarnmaster barn alleviates that tragic situation.
Lifetime Kick-Through-Proof Warranty
MD Barnmaster’s unique wall design prevents horses from kicking through your barn walls, which protects both your barn investment and your horses. Exterior grad 3/4″ Plywood, surrounded by 26 gauge steel, can withstand any horse kick and we guaranty it for as long as you own your barn. Your horses may dent the walls, but they will not kick through. Imagine the terrible leg and foot injuries this prevents. MD Barnmaster walls also flex slightly when kicked. The entire wall absorbs the shock from the kick, not your horses’ legs. A feature NOT found in Wood or Concrete Block Stalls
Lifetime Chew-Proof Warranty
MD Barnmaster barns have no wood accessible for your horses to chew. We have all seen wood barns and stalls after they’ve had horses in them for a while. What may start out as an attractive wood structure soon ends up as a partially eaten maintenance nightmare. Wood chewing also presents health issues and many believe leads to cribbing, a serious stall vice.
If the tongue and groove stall front option is your choice, it is suggested never to tie your horse to stall front for an extended time
We Love Healthy Horses
Wood barns are almost impossible to keep clean and disinfected. Unless they are finished on the interiors with smooth surfaces, the exposed wood trusses, rough sawn treated posts and other exposed lumber attract birds, pests and dust. Wood harbors harmful bacteria and disease that could endanger your horses’ health. Many surfaces are inaccessible. Even accessible surfaces absorb dirt and bacteria. MD Barnmaster barns are finished with smooth surfaces straight from the factory. Our walls do not harbor harmful bacteria and they can be cleaned with a disinfectant of your choice keeping your horses free from debilitating germs, bacteria, and disease.
