Equistor – Frontier Roof-Only
The Frontier creates an ideal cover /shelter from the sun or rain, with 2.5m projection as standard. With no leg supports, the Frontier is totally self supporting. Each Frontier is made to measure to any length, up to a maximum of 6.0m.
The Frontier cassette can be fitted on the side, flush mounted or mounted on the roof using the optional gallow bracket. As standard, the cassette is powder coated white, but colour matching it to the horsebox livery can really enhance its appearance. Operated by a cranked winding handle, one person can easily erect the Frontier in seconds. If you require real touch button luxury, a 240 volt motor can be fitted as an optional extra. The Frontier is not available with sidewall sheeting as standard.
In some cases one person could erect a equistor-frontier (roof-only) on their own.
Equistor Jumbo Roof-ONLY
As with the Frontier model, Equistor Jumbo provides an unbelievable large covered area, ideal for preparation of horse and pony, yet plenty of space left for entertaining or tack preparation. The benefit of Equistor is that it grows with your demands. Starting off as a roof-only structure in manual or electric operation, you can then add sidewall sheeting to form any of the stabling and hospitality designs shown. It can be specified up to 7.0m in length and has an increased 3.0m or 3.5m projection if required. Equistor Jumbo is supplied as standard with heavy duty aluminium corner posts, which help support the increased projections. We strongly recommend the use of the awning in this way, thus creating the strongest of structures to cope with the unpredictable British climate.

Equistor Stalling Sheets
To be used with Aluminium Base Frame
The stalling sheet prevents the horse from moving beyond the boundaries of the awning, keeping him dry or shaded from the sun. Set at 4ft high, it creates a stable environment to prepare your horse, and also makes an ideal saddle and rug rack.
To provide extra protection from the wind and rain, the top half of the side wall can be added easily by sliding the PVC sheeting into the keder grooves on the aluminium sections stalling bar. This operation will take just a minute or so, keeping you and your horse dry and comfortable. The large meshed panel provides plenty of ventilation for more humid conditions.
The addition of another internal stalling sheet partitions the stabling area from the living area – the stabling area or living area can also be closed off completely by rolling down the front panels for more privacy.
An optional extra vehicle skirt finishes your equistor off perfectly, preventing drafts from blowing under the box. It also acts as a useful deterrent against stray dogs entering your awning. The living area sidewall has a clear PVC window instead of mesh. Whether it’s just a short stay or a 2/3 day event this new accessory will provide space to relax, let the kids play, prepare your horse or pony or even entertain your friends; the choice is yours!
PVC colours can vary considerably and so can paintwork. To that end, we can supply a comprehensive sample book of PVC colours to make the best match. Sometimes a contrast of colour is the best alternative.
Recessed Jumbo Awnings
Roof mounted or flush fitting on the side are the only 2 options for retro fits but if you are investing in a new custom build, then recessing the awning can look really good. Every coach-builder has his own “design and build” techniques and as we already work closely with a number of companies, designing a recessed kit to specifically suit a vehicle design is our specialty.
Awnings That Create Style and Space
In the event that our standard designs and colours do not meet your requirements, we can interpret your own ideas to give your awning a unique individual appearance. We can advise you on any aspect of awning design and can work with your coach-builder on new vehicle build, where you may want to recess the awning into the side of the horsebox. The whole concept of Equistor is geared to achieving customer satisfaction.
