When you need both the best in class option AND the best value for your raised kennel flooring installation, there is no other name that can compete with RACS.
So that the benefits of the RACS Flooring design are up front and center in this article here are some important factors to the RACS design for dog Kennel purchasers:
- The floors are strong, stable and safe – made from plastisol coated steel
- Animals are able to move across the surfaces without getting paws caught in the openings, while the flooring combats accidents and incontinence with the open surface design
- Maintenance is minimal, and cleaning can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including comprehensive cleaning with pressure washing
- Rust proof, mildew and mold proof and UV resistant coating offers indoor or outdoor use under a variety of challenging conditions
- Temperature control is enhanced through the insulative properties of the polyvinyl surface coating
- Long-term durability is unmatched
- Comfortable surfaces aid in recovery for sick, aging or injured animals
Below we’ll highlight some more in-depth aspects of our industry leading product – suitable for any raised flooring facility or dog kennel that prioritizes animal health, ease of maintenance and long-term durability, which all contribute to healthy animals and healthy ROI over time.
Easy maintenance is a key factor to our flooring
Maintenance is critical for care facilities and boarding kennels. Animals get dirty, but flooring needs to be clean to promote healthy animals and needs to be safe for animals of all types. That’s where RACS products shine. The ability to utilize any industry standard cleaning methodology, cleaning agent, even including pressure washing, makes RACS flooring perfect for high-volume facilities, or those that need frequent cleaning.
The sizing of the panels means they can easily be soaked, and because of the way they are made, RACS flooring panels are safe for use in autoclaves. The surface of the flooring is an exercise in careful planning and engineering, meant to minimize contamination by fecal matter and stubborn debris from animals. The inverted funnel shape allows for easy drainage and cleaning, and helps to keep the underside of the flooring from harboring dangerous bacteria until the cleaning cycle is able to mitigate the danger more comprehensively.
The design facilitates quick drainage for urine and to facilitate cleaning. The autoclave option is possible because of the complete envelope that the plastisol coating forms around the underlying steel. Autoclaves offer an excellent cleaning and sanitation option. The coating also allows for any standard industry approved cleaning agents to be used – as well as hot water, steam and pressure systems.
You’ll be spending less time on sick animals because our flooring promotes healthier dogs
The air circulation of RACS flooring is without equal, thanks to the surface design. This also means urine and feces don’t stay in a place that can contact the animal for very long. This means that animals with ongoing wound care are much safer, and the overall maintenance is easier for staff.
Ambient temperature is maintained, thanks to the insulative properties of the coating and while additional bedding can be used, generally it isn’t necessary because the surface is comfortable to the animals and doesn’t create a sticky surface, while still providing some cushion.
Flooring by RACS is safer, slip resistant flooring for your kennel needs
The build is made without sharp edges, and the holes in the flooring are too small to trap even the smallest paws, but still allow for good ventilation and quick water drainage, allowing a safer and more sure step on the platform for animals.
The mesh patterning on the surface can help aid in traction for dogs or other housed animals. The completely coated surface means no exposed steel and zero rust.
Durability is incredibly important for those looking to save time and money over the long-term
There is no other option as durable as the RACS animal flooring system. The sturdy, stiff panels are coated to prevent injury, but also improve overall long-term durability. That means no rust, mildew, mold, or temperature extremes. It also has high quality UV resistance thanks to the inhibitors in the plastisol coating.
Because maintenance is minimal, and strength and surface durability is high, you don’t have to replace the panels for many years. Some of our customers have had our products in their facilities for over 20 years.
A focus on animals is a core principle to our design of kennel flooring
When there is a clear focus on getting the most out of your tools in the kennel, you can spend more time on what’s important – the animals!
Understanding the potential difficulties that can occur when animal safety and health isn’t the priority can be a game changing mentality. We have built that concept into our flooring products. While it may seem to be a no-brainer to focus on animal safety and comfort, our design truly delivers on those principles.
Animal health is the focus when you don’t have to worry about your flooring
For dog kennels, treatment facilities, housing facilities and other veterinary, or kennel focused organizations, we manufacture our products to ensure that you can focus on what you are good at – taking care of animals with appropriate care and consideration. Our aim is to make this an easier task, with low maintenance and high durability, but also through thoughtfulness in design, and the ability to make a completely customized solution for the style and design of your facility.
Inability to maintain, or lack of maintenance can shorten flooring lifespan
Not only will an inconsistent maintenance routine shorten lifespan of any type of flooring, but it can make it difficult to treat or house dogs using best practices.
With RACS flooring this is less of a concern, with the high durability and long life it ensures you have a great product from the beginning. But the key here is the ability to maintain the product easily and comprehensively. That’s able to be accomplished thanks to efficient, accessible cleaning routines because of modular design, the use of any standard cleaning agent and easy cleaning processes, like using pressure washers. Additionally, the surface qualities of the plastisol help to minimize debris and matter sticking to the kennel flooring.
We think we can make a compelling argument that we provide a best in class option for your kennel flooring needs – especially if you prioritize the health of your animals and the ease of maintenance that we have built into our product.
