What you can expect from our cage base:
- Cages need to be easy to clean and disinfect.
- There cannot be dirty corners or sharp edges, as these can lead to injury of animals or cares. Large area preferential.
- The cage base can be adapted. A tray can be inserted and removed without have to open the cage doors. This is very practical in a recovery cage to avoid contamination of the inner pan.
- For long term usage the cage needs to adapt to the temperature of the patient without use of an extra heating system.
- If extra heating is required, for example infrared light, then the temperature needs to be evenly distributed within the cage.
- From our experience, this is why we recommend fiberglass Polyester for the cage base.
- For mice we recommend using modular plastic cages.
Our Standards for Cage Doors:
- We recommend that all cages wider than 60cm are dual level type doors. This enables easier access and security.
- The distance between the grid rods should not exceed 23mm.
- Mouse cages have a grid cover with standard measurements.
- The latch should be both easy to use and secure. They should be constructed that they latch in above and underneath, without the necessity of a bar in between.
- The doors should be easy to take off (without tools) for cleaning and disinfection purposes.
- The doors are made of a non corrosive stainless steel, with polished surface.
What you can expect when assembling our cages:
- We cater for all your needs, no matter what you space and cage requirement should be.
- Our cages can be assembled together securely. Horizontal grout are minimized and sealed with silicon.
- If required we can supply a waterproof lining, panel, covering etc.
- Our cages are made from stable non corrosive stainless steel, which are covered by waterproof, removable panels.
- It goes without saying that no patient should be able to crawl underneath or between the cages..
