Heavy-Duty Cage RACS

Industrial cage floors are used primarily by university and commercial research facilities. They traditionally use different types of caging than veterinarians.  Chain link fencing in place of walls is often used in many large industrial runs. Therefore, larger and heavier-duty cage floors are required.

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. So if dried feces remain after the initial cleaning, wait five minutes so it can soak. Then you can 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, the openings get wider once feces clear the narrowest point of the “funnel”. This will minimize stuck fecal issues.

Industrial Cage Floors

Industrial Cage Floors

Individual cages are often of a type that has a channel for the cage floor to slide into.  Our standard veterinary floors with legs will not work in such cages.  Therfore, Ridglan Animal Care Systems can custom design and manufacture the appropriate cage flooring.

Most industrial cages for individual animals are of stainless steel with a channel welded to the wall of the cage. This channel acts as the support for the cage floor which slides into it. Due to the height restriction of a channel in some installations, we use a flattened expanded metal. These channels were originally intended to accept uncoated stainless steel racks. In addition, they often have an opening of only one inch. Our dipping process adds 1/8 inch of coating to the steel on the top and the bottom. Therefore, it is important to keep in mind the channel height when ordering your Industrial Cage Floors.
