RACS Run Covers and Whelping Floors
The best method is to cover the whole kennel run or whelping area with one or more RACS covers specifically designed to fit your area. This eliminates the concern of an animal laying in its own waste or spilled food and water. Therefore, it isn’t necessary to remove the animal in order to flush the run floor down. This can save facilities a lot of time in sanitation procedures. The mesh allows most of the fecal matter to fall through onto the floor below. In addition, RACS Run Covers and whelping floors have a great strength-to-weight ratio. Our raised kennel floors are strong enough to hold two technicians and the animal they are attending.
Cleaning is Quick & Easy!
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.
Plastisol-coated metal mesh promotes optimal foot health. RACS run covers are specifically designed for traction.

The CR2 Run Cover
The sturdy CR2 run cover has a flat surface for animal comfort when walking or lying down. The additional surface area provided will reduce or eliminate the occurrence of interdigital cysts (IDC). However, the openings are large enough for easy pass-through of feces. The opening length and width can be customized. It’s important to accommodate the pad size of the animals that will be placed on these floors.
Not only does the CR2 have all the benefits of RACS industrial run covers, but also works exceptionally well in whelping pens and over drain areas. The CR2 floor can likewise be used as a cage RAC. These floors are custom-built to the user’s size requirements.

Raised Kennel Floors are Designed to Meet Your Requirements
RACS raised animal flooring can fit any commercial or custom-made run or whelping pen. Given your facility’s requirements, a custom floor can be designed to fit your objectives as well as your budget. With new construction, supports such as pegs, angle iron, or hooks can be provided on the run walls. This eliminates the need for legs. Custom RACS run covers and whelping floors with built-in legs can be made to raise up to a total height of 6-1/2 inches from the floor to the top of the mesh.
RACS plastisol-coated steel Industrial Run Covers are excellent for facilities housing large group pens with chain-link dividers. They can be built with or without legs to keep the animal up and off the concrete floor. When ordering, it is important to consider the posts and any other obstructions in the cage.
Furthermore, Ridglan Animal Care Systems can also provide you with a total animal flooring system on top of which you can set your chain link fencing dividers. These industrial run covers have legs that are bolted on so they can be raised to any height.
