Horse Stalls by Triton: Glossary of Terms
This glossary lists many of the words and technical terms used in our web site and in our users guides.
We've tried to use terms correctly, but sometimes we've used common terms with specialized or non-standard implications.
We hope you will find table this helpful.
The fixed bottom part of a horse exerciser containing the motor, drive
system and slew bearing, complete with trim panels.
Supports the rotating superstructure, is bolted to the floor or concrete pad, and contains the electrical terminal block.
Small, decorative tower on a roof.
If functional, used to provide ventilation or to exhaust hot air.
|Eave||The lower edge of a roof.
Typically parallel to the ground. A candidate location for a gutter.
|Fascia||The finished edge of a roof at an eave or rake, usually vertical or orthogonal to the roof surface, visible from a distance.|
|Flashing||Sheet metal formed and installed to prevent water ingress.
Typically used where a roof panel meets a wall or a fitting such as a vent or cupola, or in a valley where two roof panels meet.
|Footing||The material (soil, sand, artificial or composite medium) used for the
floor surface of an arena or track.
So named because it supports the horse's feet and better quality and texture of footing benefits the horse.
|Gabled roof||Roof with two sloped surfaces meeting at a ridge (also pitched roof).
Such as the common roof style used for a center aisle barn or for back to back rows of stalls.
|Gate||A divider panel, optionally electrified by a fence charger, hung from a
horse exerciser arm.
Divides the exercise track into pens. Can rotate about the axis of the arm to slide over a fixed obstruction.

|Girt||Horizontal structural member in wall.
Common in metal buildings to support wall cladding, not normally used in Triton Barns.

coating applied in a molten bath.
Protects the entire piece including welds, inside and exterior surfaces
|Pitched roof||Same as gabled roof above.|
|Purlin||Horizontal structural member in a roof.
Runs between two trusses, parallel to the roof ridge, and supports the roof deck material or metal roofing panels.
|Rake||The sloped edge of a roof.

edge of the roof,
visible from below. Usually either parallel to the ground or parallel to the roof surface.
|Superstructure||The rotating upper part of a horse exerciser consisting of the tubular
center section that bolts to the base, arms and gates.
May include the distribution mechanism for fence charger voltage and water for the sprinkler system.
|TAG||Triton Arena Groomer.
Line of products to level and control the texture and condition of a surface such as a show ring or riding arena.
|Tine||Pointed, replaceable hardened steel tip used by an arena groomer to loosen the footing.|
|Tine Spring||Spring steel replaceable link attaching a tine to the arena groomer tine assembly,|
|Track||The area between the inner and outer walls of a horse exerciser where the horse exercises.|
|Truss||Used here for any sloped structural roof support member.

|Turbine vent||Roof vent where wind turns a turbine to help extract hot air.
Typically placed near the top of the roof to lower interior or attic temperatures.
