Maxuss Solarium

Carl Hester, top international dressage rider. Following detailed discussions with Carl, Kylix UK developed the Maxuss (Pro*) to meet his exacting requirements providing the facility to treat and dry his string of top-grade Grand Prix horses.

The Maxuss, Maxuss Pro and Maxuss Twin are our largest models and built to the highest specifications. Front, middle, and rear sections are hinged and can be individually adjusted to any angle and size of your horse. Pro versions add additional side pods, and the twin version is a double Maxuss to cover more muscle mass.

Solariums can help improve your horse’s performance and condition. The infrared heat generated energy penetrates the skin into the underlying muscle and helps stimulate blood circulation, this improves muscle elasticity, therefore helping recovery from and reduction of injuries. A pre-exercise warm-up under the solarium will relax muscles and improve training performance by increasing blood circulation. Solariums help your horse to recover quicker after exercise as the stimulated circulation allows the muscles to absorb blood sugars more quickly and speeds up the elimination of waste products from them. Solariums speed up the drying and warming process before and after exercise or washing down and will add shine to the coat.


  • The lamp positioning is designed to treat specific muscle groups.
  • The front is raised, and rear section lowered to allow free movement of the horse’s neck and features rounded edges to avoid injury
  • A combination of 24 – 48 IR lamps of varying wattage and 6 – 12 air fan circulators to ensure an even and pleasant temperature over your horse.
  • The lamps are mounted into aluminium back boxes set into the main body avoiding your horse making contact with the hot lamps.
  • The aluminium back boxes minimise corrosion and heat loss into and behind the main body shell.
  • All lamp fittings are manufactured from quality ceramic, not thermoplastic, giving greater longevity
  • All internal wiring is fire resistant to 110°c.
  • Internal thermostat ensures circulating fans do not operate until the internal temperature reaches 30°c eliminating muscle tightness due to the movement of cold air over the back
  • As an option, our solariums can be supplied with electrically operated, purpose built fully enclosed belt hoist systems with no exposed noisy chains or cables, UV lamps with timer and a range of control boxes.
  • 3300 – 6600 Watts drying power
  • Kylix UK provide a full installation and after sales service.
