Would like advice on stall mats, stall fans and window bars

Any advice on places to get a good deal on mats for a 12 x 12 stall? Will be needing them for six stalls with concrete flooring. I have been looking at the kind that interlocks. COMMENTS?

Also what kind of fans do you use in your stall. Right now I use the box fans, but thinking of getting the round ones and mount them at a top corner of each stall. COMMENTS, ADVICE, PLACES TO PURCHASE?

And last but not least. Will be needing bar frames for my stall windows (4x4)
My husband says he can make them, but if we could purchase them already built for a good price that would save some time and effort. ADVICE, COMMENTS?

Tractor supply for all your questions...

They have great barn fans.
This one in particular is a sealed motor {must in the barn for fire safety}

They have mats in various thickness at good prices and they have stall bars.

When we did our barn we used livestock panels between our stalls for ventilation, and sight of each other but not touching or harassing each other allowed.
They have regular bar sections though too.
Also check out Country manufacturing for those bars...nice selection and different styles to chose from depending upon which part of the stall you want them for...

You know we will want pictures again,...

Tractor Supply for rubber mats
Northern Tool + Equipment for fans that are mounted in the way you want to do them
Bar Frames - I have found I have been really pleased with this company but we collect direct from them as their quote for shipping was really high - they will make to measure
Barn Grills -Front & Center Wall Stall Grills | Barn Depot
I've also used these people and they did free shipping but I think only did set sizes
Dutch Doors by Country MFG.

Tractor supply is great for all those. As for the ones that hook together like the puzzle piece ones? I have not used thought I use the 4x6 rubber mats that are one inch thick. They are are awesome super heavy duty and they have a ten year warranty. I am building a barn and wanted to save all the money I could without cutting corners. So I actually searched for them in Craigslist in my area. I found a bunch of them in brand new condition for $15 dollars a piece the girl just wanted them gone. So that is is a nice place to look too if you don't want to buy brand new ones. They last a long time.
As far as fans I have never used them. I live in New England so six month out of the year the temp is in the 40's or below. The summer is short and doesn't get that extreme in heat I just make sure they have plenty of fresh cold water. But I do know that Tractor Supply has them!
Good Luck!
