Ridglan Animal Care Systems (RACS) Flooring is truly beneficial to any animal care facility. Not only is the company easy to work with and willing to modify their items for you, but the animals respond so well to the material. No more slipping and sliding from older dogs who are nervous to be walking on anything other than carpeting. The grates are easy to clean, durable, and not hard on the pets feet. The fact that everything is also removable is an added bonus. I can remove them from my kennels and clean them easily. The plastic and the coated metal last for years. There is no reason to worry about porous surfaces growing bacteria. These types of grates are hard to find and there are no other grates like them. I am so glad to have found RACS Floors.
