5 Key Benefits of The PE Rugging System

1) Customisability

You can customise your rug to the required weight for the weather or season. Easily apply your rug liner by securely attaching it to the outer rug when required. With our rugging system you have the ability to transform your lightweight turnout rug into a medium weight turnout rug or your medium weight turnout rug into a heavyweight turnout rug; ideal for the changing seasons.

2) Hygiene

You can remove the rug liner and wash them as required, helping to maintain good hygiene without having to wash the entire outer rug. PE rug liners fit into most domestic washing machines. Dry naturally.

3) Storage

Storing 1 outer rug and 1 or 2 rug liners may take up less space in your tack room than 3 separate weight option rugs. Ideal if you have limited storage space.



4) Expand Your Weight Options Collection

Our rugging system allows you to create custom rug weight options by combining different outer rugs with rug liners.

We offer 100g, 200g and 350g rug liners to combine with our range of turnout rugs & stable rugs with rug liner compatibility. Choose your outer rug and choose your rug liner to create a custom weight rug combination.

5) Replacement

With the PE rugging system, if you need to replace your turnout or stable rug you will only need to replace the outer rug. Your collection of rug liners will still remain to make your custom rug weight combinations. This may be more cost effective than purchasing 3 separate rugs if you require a lightweight turnout rug, medium weight turnout rug, heavyweight turnout rug and stable rug.
