Hinged horse stalls are also referred to as European stall fronts (or “Euros”). These stall fronts offer your horses maximum socialization. This is because the horse stall door and sides (wings) provide a swooping curve. This horse stall front design provides your barn the ultimate in equestrian style. European stall fronts allow for a more open design in comparison to sliding stall fronts.
Our European stall fronts are custom built to order which means that there is no “standard” design. Our European stall fronts can be dressed up with brass finials, aluminum caps, and any curved design. In contrast, they can also be designed to have a more simple, yet elegant Western aesthetic. Choose from various options and styles to create a horse stall design that meets your design and lifestyle goals.
We are located just outside Washington D.C., but our customers are all over the world. We custom build and ship our custom horse stalls across the world.
Our expert logistics team can coordinate the best transportation to help your stall equipment reach your barn via the quickest, most efficient method. This applies to any domestic deliveries within the United States and even for international deliveries across the world.
The actual thickness of the steel sheet is indicated as a unit of measurement referred to as “gauge.” The rating for steel gauge may seem backward:the smaller the number, the thicker the steel. For example, 14-gauge will be thicker than 16-gauge.
We use a variety of different gauges on our products. However, our European Horse Stall Front systems use 14-gauge American steel for the steel framing and the steel tubing. We then use heavy-duty 10-GA (Schedule 40) round posts. We then use a variety of metals such as stainless steel and aluminum on our hardware to ensure ultimate longevity and strength. Rest assured, your American Stalls equipment is built to last.
All of our American Stalls products are built with longevity in mind. We use only the very best raw materials including pre-galvanized steel for our structural components. We then exclusively use pre-galvanized steel, stainless steel, and/or aluminum on all hardware (i.e. hinges, latches, bolts, etc).
Our pre-galvanized steel frames, tubing, and hardware all undergo a strict quality control process before powder coating. For example, we use a zinc-prime paint coat on all welds for any projects going to high salt exposure areas such as coastal Florida.
We believe this is a significant differentiator where we take multiple steps to clean and prime our pre-galvanized products prior to powder coat. We then powder coat each component from experts who have years of experience. Lastly, we utilize an industry-leading TGIC-polyester based powder coat finish that is tested for ultimate performance. Rest assured, your American Stalls products will stand the test of time.
We use our Plunger Latch on all of our European Horse Stall Fronts. This Plunger Latch is built in-house in our facility to ensure ultimate quality control.
Our Plunger Latches, most commonly, feature a 304 stainless steel knob and striker plate. Our knob ensures a beautiful aesthetic while our striker plate ensures no scratches when closing your door. Our Plunger Latch's knob can also be upgraded to other precious metals such as brass (upon request).
We prioritize simple, functional design in all of our products. That means simplicity and practacility for the end user. That also means simple products that are easy to install by our clients, general contractor, and builder partners.

Yes, our European Stall Fronts require a concrete base to be anchored upon.
Our European Stall Fronts comprise of 3 core components – a left wing, door, and right wing. The left and right wings are welded to round posts that feature 6" baseplates. These baseplates include pre-drilled holes through which you must anchor your posts to the concrete for structural integrity.
In very custom ocassions, we are able to manufacture a system that does not require a full concrete curb. Contact an American Stalls Project Manager to discuss further options.
Our European Stall Fronts are exceptional for the vast majority of barns and breeds. We routinely build our European Horse Stall Fronts for larger breeds that compete in dressage and hunter jumper circuits.
That being said, the choice in horse stall front is a personal decision based on your facility, its foot traffic, your horses, their dispositions, and more. For example, we recommend our "High" European Stall Fronts for horses that need a little bit more containment. Our high Stall Fronts feature wings that are 7' to 8' tall as opposed to our "Low" European Stall Fronts that swoop drastically at the wings.
