Permanent or portable panels for install?
We can help you choose which panels to build your arena. Here are a few considerations we can help with.
✓ Benefit 1: Endless Versatility When arenas are built on a budget with future plans for expansion, or the requirements of the arena change over time, our portable panels can be moved, and the structure can be easily expanded or reduced in size with minimal effort. Once permanent pens are in place, any structural modifications are often labor intensive and can require expensive third party labor costs.
✓ Benefit 2: Portability & Value Our arenas can be relocated on your current property, taken with you if you move, or repurposed into paddocks, round pens, and more. (And they keep value! Most modular panels purchased 10 years ago are worth as much today used as they were when they were originally purchased.)
✓ Benefit 3: Ease of Installation & Time Saving Unlike permanent installations, no skilled labor from welders or carpenters is required (which means it’s also cheaper). Two or three men can put up a panel arena in a fraction of the time it takes to build permanent facilities because they are so easy to work with. Installation can often be completed in one or two days from start to finish depending on the size and type of arena setup.
✓ Benefit 4: Massive Cost Savings The initial cost of a portable panel arena is less than the labor, material and time costs of a permanent installation. When taking maintenance costs into consideration, panel arenas are almost always a more cost effective investment than permanent. Many times the addition of a permanent structure, like an arena, becomes a taxable asset, while portable or “temporary” structures do not incur these taxes.
✓ Benefit 5: Adaptability to Your Current Set-up Our panels can easily be connected to many competitors’ panels and are often available with special connectors to attach to existing permanent pens. This adaptability allows you to utilize and/or connect to materials you may already have in place.
✓ Benefit 6: Good Looking & Long Lasting We use only the best materials available, and our panels are powder coated for a long lasting, good looking facility. Our powder with UV inhibitors to help the panel resist the fading effects of sunlight, ensuring that your panels look good for many years to come. This powder also results in a high gloss, furniture quality finish that has a beautiful aesthetic appeal.
✓ Benefit 7: Low Maintenance – No Re-Painting Required! Our powder coat finish is made to last, making it a great low maintenance option. Most permanent installations require expensive rust preventative maintenance every year, along with new coats of paint every few years to keep the arena looking fresh.
✓ Benefit 8: Safe for Humans & Livestock Permanent installations are often built using local welders or laborers who usually do not have experience with livestock. Given their lack of experience, they often overlook many of the details that are crucial to safety. These can range from sharp exposed edges to poor designs in regard to livestock flow.
✓ Benefit 9: Toughest Products Available Our panels feature single piece, vertical stays that are fitted through drilled rails to increase the panel’s strength. In fact, our products are so tough and reliable that they are the exclusive equipment choice of the top professionals and organizations in the country, such as the PBR and the PRCA.
✓ Benefit 10: Options, Options and More Options We understand that arenas are not a “one size fits all” product, so we offer a number of options when it comes to panel types and accessories to help each customer find the best fit for their budget. We also offers a variety of arena kits for basic riding arenas, roping arenas, rough stock arenas and combination arenas, making it easy to select an arena layout that fits a customer’s specific needs.
