For over 20 years, GGT Footing has been utilizing pre-consumer, residual Polyester substances. By incorporating the recipe of sand, textiles, and know how, many show managers and professional arena builders are able to promote a better quality of footing for horses and riders alike. The German Geo Textile by GGT Footing that has been installed at several show facilities around the world has a high water storage capability, optimal impact resistance; higher slide strength, additional stability and an extended lifetime of the arena surface.
The quality of our product is very high; the raw material is very specific to our requirements. This is not a product that has been used, chopped up, and made into something. A lot of other footing companies use old sneakers or old rubber tires to create their footing. What we have is remnant material that is clean and 100 percent polyester.
Years ago, construction workers would roll out the polyester textile to use on commercial flat buildings, and then cut the extra material from the sides. It was costly to have the material taken away, but the smart thinking management in Germany, thought of a way to utilize these textiles. Working with suggestions from several European arena builders, GGT Footing created a new use. They used this newly created material to combine with sand, mixing it into a unique and beneficial footing. This was the inception of GGT- Footing.
The most important thing about GGT- Footing is the consistency, high quality, and the fact that we manufacture in the United States and Germany offering word-wide distribution availability.
Horse show managers have actually told us that their entries have gone up by putting in GGT- Footing because it has earned such a reputable name.
GGT –Footing offers a full suite of arena building amendments.
Popular alternative to heavy loads of rock gravel is to install our GGT-butterfly matting system. ‘This product allows for thinner base material and offers a concussion relief to horses competing in high end performance classes.
The “Butterfly” is a consistent, further development in traditional matting systems – improvements were made on weight (handling, freight costs), quality (production process, certified raw materials, availability, durability) and function (drainage, water retention, stability). Further features are: enlarged water cups in combination with drainage holes to allow thundershower rain to drain quickly, tongue and groove (interlocking to prevent mats from shifting) and knobs (improved footing stability)
