Vet Clinic Kennel Flooring Manufactured for Safety
When choosing flooring for your veterinary clinic kennels, you need floors that have been manufactured for the health and safety of the animals. It would be great if flooring was easy to clean, built to last, and made life easier on staff as well. Here are the ways that RACS veterinary flooring is manufactured to meet your flooring needs:
RACS Veterinary Flooring is Manufactured for Animal Safety
Every step of the design process for Poly-Vinyl Coated Steel Kennel Floors works towards floors that are as safe for animals as possible. Flooring is welded from prime steel and very carefully cleaned.
Next, it is primed to enable the strongest possible bond with plastisol. Floors aren’t just coated with plastisol. The entire floor is dipped into liquid plastisol as one piece. This means that coverage will be more consistent and there won’t be any exposed steel.
Once the floor is thoroughly coated, it is cured at high temperatures for an extended period. This process creates an extremely tough surface that can hold up to significant wear while maintaining the highest safety standards. It also creates flooring that is extremely comfortable for animals.
Benefits of the RACS Veterinary Flooring Manufacturing Process for Animals
RACS flooring is a superb investment for vet clinic kennel flooring when it comes to animal safety and health. The manufacturing process produces flooring that reduces the possibility of injury and illness and keeps animals more comfortable than other types of flooring.
Avoid the Growth of Fungus and Bacteria
Heat cured flooring is very smooth, even after it has sustained years of wear. This sleek surface resists the growth of fungus and bacteria.
No Exposed Steel or Rough Edges
You won’t have to worry about animals being cut or rubbed or steel being exposed and beginning to rust, since there is never any exposed steel or rough edges after the stringent manufacturing process.
Plastisol coating will never be colder than room temperature. This means that you get the strength of steel kennel floors without the chill of metal. Animals stay comfortably warm even if no bedding is provided.
Keeps Cages Clean and Dry
Openings in RACS flooring are specially designed to enable most fecal matter to fall through to the floor below so that animals will never be left standing in it. This means that even between cleanings, animals won’t have to live in their own mess.
The raised-up design and openings on the surface also provide great ventilation. These floors dry very quickly after they’ve been cleaned and they won’t hold moisture and contribute to humidity. Since a dry environment is important for healing, this is a valuable characteristic in veterinary flooring.
Provide Superior Traction
This slip-resistant kennel flooring provides superb traction. Even older dogs who have a hard time keeping their footing on most types of flooring have no trouble on RACS veterinary flooring. It is soft on paws and allows animals to move naturally, which is important both for the comfort of the animals and so that you can observe them behaving more naturally.
Benefits of the RACS Veterinary Flooring Manufacturing Process for Staff
The health and comfort of the animals under your care are likely your first priority. However, it is also well worth considering how flooring will affect staff as well. Veterinarians and technicians are busy providing great care to animals and service to their owners. Kennel flooring that makes their jobs easier is an important consideration.
When you need to be absolutely sure that any dangerous microorganisms have been eliminated from a kennel, you are likely to rely on an autoclave. You want to be sure that kennel flooring is safe for use with an autoclave so that you know that your kennel floors can be completely sanitized.
Clean Without Removing the Animal
It would be great if kennels could always be cleaned when they were empty, but this simply isn’t the case. Some animals are difficult to handle, aggressive, or have an illness or injury that makes moving them frequently to clean impractical. Therefore, the fact that RACS flooring can be cleaned while an animal stays in the cage makes a huge difference.
Reduce Overall Time Cleaning
The smooth surface and specially designed gaps of RACS flooring mean that cleaning time can be reduced overall while getting cages cleaner than is possible with other floors. Staff will spend less time cleaning and more time taking care of animals and clients.
The unique plastisol coating process used by Ridglan Animal Care System means that there won’t be any exposed steel to rust and that flooring can hold up to even significant wear without breaking down. These floors will last longer than the competition and save you money in the long term.
Built to Your Specifications
Unlike many other types of flooring that require that you have a specific space in which to put the flooring, RACS flooring can be manufactured to your exact specifications. You can customize your kennel system to your clinic, rather than the other way around.
