Constructed of (2) Steel 8″ x 3″ x 1/8″ fork tubes with (I) 3/16″ formed insert at each end (for added strength at fork tube stress points) and (5) 2½” x 2½” x 3/16″ angles. *3/16″ fork tubes are optional; *Fork tube “litter cut out holes” (aids in reducing litter build-up) are optional.
End upright is 2″ x I” x 3/16″ steel channel. Center upright is 2″ x I” x 3/16″ steel channel. 2″ Upright channel on each end with formed steel strap for Tie down pocket: ( 1) end welded and (I) end bolt-on for easy removal and floor replacement. (Channel is used in place of tubing to prevent build-up of litter in the bottom of tube uprights. This may allow water to be retained in these areas and can then lead to damage caused by premature rust or the freezing and bursting of the tubing. Litter build-up also adds unwanted weight to the cage.)
*Tubing uprights are optional
Structural Angle 1″ x l” x 1 /8″ is used on back side, and I” x l” x 3/16″ on door side. Flat bar 1/8″X1/2″ bracing/gussets.
Animal Friendly horizontal wire panels with fork bumper plates at top and bottom of both ends. AF horizontal wire panels used for center end and middle interior pa1titions, extend to the side of channel uprights to make repairs easier. All other partitions are welded from floor joist to floor joist duplicating a truss action which makes the cage sturdier and leaves no opening for toes, feet, wings etc. to get caught. * Animal Friendly horizontal wire panels are used in an effort to help diminish possible damage to wings, legs etc. in the removal of the bird from the cage.
