Burgess Matting & Surfacing Ltd
Safety matting for horse floats, horse trucks, stable boxes, stock trucks, parading arenas, calf trailers, ensure animal safety and comfort.


The Burgess Agricultural and Equine matting systems have been developed over the last 50 years in conjunction with farmers and owners with the need and foresight to look after stock / animals.

Safety matting for stock trucks, calf trailers, horse floats, horse trucks and stable boxes ensure animal safety and comfort.

Matting is also available for high stock usage areas, i.e. exit and entry pads, wintering pads, cattle road matting and don’t forget the dog kennel or the boot liner! 

For those wet and slippery areas we recommend BMS matting to provide exceptional grip and stability and the anti fatigue properties of BMS matting reduces problems associated with tired / sore legs and feet while milking for long periods etc.  Vet and wash down areas can also be accommodated.

For Horse Parading Arenas, BMS can offer 3 options -  Loose rubber, durabond or tiles – BMS can advise the best system to suit your application.
