Bathing Grates for Animals
Plastic-coated expanded metal tub floor grates are manufactured by Ridglan Animal Care Systems. The expanded metal surface is resistant to bacterial and fungal growth. We offer two styles that can be custom sized to fit your existing tub.
Bottom Tub Floor Grates
The Tub Bottom Grates are elevated from the tub floor. The dirt and suds rinse off through the open mesh to the tub below keeping the animals clean. With this in mind, the grates are built to sit on the bottom of a tub. The mesh platform is elevated 2-1/2 inches off the bottom by two runners. The runners are set in approximately 1-1/2 inches to avoid the curve of the tub. Dogs of any size fit nicely on this style tub. It is easy to determine the size needed. All that is necessary is to measure the width and length of the inside of the tub at 2 inches above the tub bottom. Additionally, custom made tub grates can be made to your size requirements.

Below is a short video on how to properly measure for your Bottom Tub Grate.
Top Tub Floor Grates
The Tub Top grates are built to hang on the top edges of a tub. In this case, arms extend from the grate to suspend the platform about 2 inches below the edge. As a result, bathing smaller dogs and cats is much easier. Additionally, this style tub grate has often been used for procedures involving anesthesia. In the same way, clipping severe hair mats and performing minor surgeries are much easier. Comfortable access to the patient is important. Due to the many variations of tubs used, there are no standard sizes of the Tub Top Grate. To determine the size needed, measure the width and length of the inside of your tub at 2 inches down from the tub top. Custom made Tub Top Grates are made to your size requirements.
