I am the Purchasing Director for Snyder Mfg. and work with hundreds of vendors who assist in creating our wonderful product. With the growing economy and relentless production schedules that so many of us are experiencing, I have found that RACS is one of the more reliable vendors in terms of meeting (or beating) lead times, superior quality and their customer service is second to none. 

A special thanks to Courtney and Brittany for getting our recent order shipped so quickly! 

Three Standard Cage Floors

Original Cage RACS

The Original Cage Floor, now used by veterinarians for over 40 years, is designed to be lightweight, durable and easy to clean. Use papers and bedding, if desired, and change them without disturbing the animal in the cage. The specially made legs are similar to sled runners in appearance and are bent according to the size of cage floor. If used in larger cages, a center support is also welded to the platform. These floors remain popular for two reasons.  First, they have a lower cost. Second, when using a cage dryer after bathing there is air circulation.

Comfort RACS

The Comfort RAC Floor is perforated steel with a glossy Hunter Green coating.  The perforating process produces a flat surface, comfortable surface for the animal.  At the same time it retains the advantage of the plastisol (poly-vinyl) coating and offers an opening size large enough for easy pass through of fecal material.

Aluminum RAC-Lite

The Aluminum RAC-Lite floor was developed in response to requests for even lighter cage floors.  The RAC-Lite is 35% lighter than a coated steel floor of the same size.  The height of these floors is 2-1/4″ from the floor to the top of the mesh.  This allows almost two inches additional head room for the larger dogs.  As with our Original Cage Floors, the larger cages have an extra pair of legs in the center.  They are popular due to their shorter height, lesser weight, and ease of handling.

All our cage floor styles pair well with the Poly Pet Heat Mat which is available in three sizes.

Benefits for Animals and Caregivers

Both our coated aluminum and coated steel cage floors are designed to hold the weight of the animals that will fit in the appropriate size cage floor.  They are not made to put into runs or resting platforms for large-sized animals, or for where human weight might be applied.

Cleaning the plastisol coated animal flooring is simple and efficient, eliminating bacteria buildup. Most customers are pleased with how our flooring cleans with a pressure washer. If dried feces remain after the initial cleaning, wait five minutes so it can soak and then make a second pass with the washer. RACS mesh is designed to accommodate the smallest foot while having openings as large as possible for easy cleaning. Each hole in our mesh is tapered like a funnel. Therefore, once feces clear the narrowest point of the “funnel” the openings get wider (like an inverted funnel) minimizing stuck fecal issues.

All RACS flooring is autoclave safe.  In addition, RACS coated veterinary flooring relieves animal stress by staying dry and never feeling colder than room temperature.
