Custom Animal Cages for Transporting, Restraining, and Housing.
The Swine Pens are designed to
provide housing for swine in the research environment. They are suitable for swine of all
sizes from mini-pigs to large domestic breeds. The pens can be utilized as single or
multiple housing units which are formed by easily assembled (and disassembled) panels in
standard nominal lengths of three, four, six, and eight feet. The standard panel height is
40". Various length panels can be joined to provide square or rectangular pens to
meet animal space requirements and available space in the laboratory. The pens can be
assembled with the panels resting directly on the floor for utilizing dry bedding
materials. Or they can be elevated on optional adjustable support brackets and suspended
flooring panels installed to house the swine off the room floor so that a set waste
disposal system may be employed. The front gate panel incoroporates a built in mounting
bracket holding a removable stainless steel swine feeder. Automatic watering manifolds and
removable stainless steel water troughs are available as optional features. A specially
designed transport/wash cart (LT-1800-S) is available for transporting and washing the
panels and floor sections in a cage rack washer.
