Stabling of Distinction
Anyone who knows anything about horses will recognise the name
HARLOW as being something special.
HARLOWS have been designing high quality stabling for more than 75
years, based upon our personal knowledge of horses and being proud
owners of several winners ourselves.
In this brochure you will see many examples of fine craftsmanship for
which we are so well known, and whether yours is a professional
establishment, or you simply keep horses as a hobby, we feel sure you
will find the right kind of building to suit your requirements.
We combine the manufacturing skills of experienced craftsmen with the
latest technological innovations to produce buildings which are practical
in every kind of situation but still retain the charm of traditional stabling.
See For Yourself...
Colour photographs can be very nice, but they are no substitute for the
real thing.We at HARLOWS are proud of our products, that is why we
invite prospective customers to visit our works to discuss their
proposals with our experienced staff and to see the quality of our
buildings for themselves on our permanent showground.

‘National’ Loose Boxes
‘National’ Mark 2 boxes are by far our most popular design of box
commanding our largest sales.
Open fodder stores, garages, archways, tack and feed rooms can be
combined with standard boxes, enabling us to provide customers with
individually designed buildings, particular to their personal needs.
Small Compact Units
Many proud owners of HARLOW boxes are people who keep horses
simply for their own pleasure; such people often need only small
compact units like the ones illustrated.
These smaller units are nevertheless built to the same high specification
as any of the larger complexes shown in this brochure.
Loose Box Sizes
Standard box sizes: 3m x 3.6m (10 x 12'); 3.6m x 3.6m (12' x 12'); 4.2m x
3.6m (14' x 12'). Height to eaves 7'4"; to ridge 11'3" or height to eaves 8';
to ridge 12'1". Other sizes available on request e.g. foaling boxes.
L-shaped layouts
Corner boxes 5.4m x 3.6m (18' x 12') or 4.8m x 3.6m (16' x 12') can be
incorporated into loose boxes to form l-shaped layouts.This is
particularly useful where there is space for future expansion.The initial
unit can comprise of any number of boxes, and extensions can be added
as and when required until the projet is completed.
Optional Extras
Kickboard Linings: Available in 12mm (1/2") exterior plywood or
18mm (3/4") OSB (Orientated Strand Board) up to eaves height.

Miscellaneous: Galvanised sheet steel to inside of top and bottom
door. Louvre windows with grilles. Steel grilles in partitions between
boxes.Top doors to rear wall.
Sitework and preparation of bases
are the customer’s responsibility.
The normal recommendation for boxes is
a concrete floor with a single course of
engineering bricks to carry the sections and
to act as a dampcourse. HARLOWS provide galvanised stays to anchor
the building firmly to the base after the building has been erected.
