Cover Type A
The solutions shown below are used when the gutter is in the back of the run. If there is a ledge next to the wall for legs to rest on, consider Cover Type A. Under these circumstances, there are two solutions.
- Solution #1 is a cover that sits on top of the floor. In this case, rod spacers underneath the cover prevent it from shifting out of position.
- Solution #2 is a cover that rests on legs. With this in mind, at least two inches of space should be between the frame of the cover and the floor of the run. This makes it easy to rinse animal feces without having to remove or lift the gutter cover.
In fact, both solutions can be made just wide enough to cover the gutter or wide enough for a resting bench for the patient. This will provide a high, dry, and warm place to lie on.
