ModSquad 6.2

This cage design is the culmination of several years of collaborative design development. It includes features like:

The Britz-Wheel

A social divider dial developed with the CHOICE "smart" cage project. The CHOICE design project is ongoing, and includes users from Mass General Hospital, the Yerkes Primate Center and the University of California San Francisco. The goal of this project is to develop caging features that give animals control of their environmental enrichment.

Gutterless Design

Gutters (typically used to contain/control sliding divider doors) and flat surfaces have been minimized to the best extent possible. Gutters and flat surface are replaced with round smooth surfaces that are easier to clean and wont trap debris.

Modular Design

Snap-in insert design developed in our Flex-A-Gon group enclosures allow users to quickly add or change cage features. This gives animals and staff more choices for enrichment and provides a simple way to add features that may be developed in the future.

Silent Squeeze

Recently developed with a large primate user in the midwest, this new squeeze design is fully isolated to eliminate almost every metal-on-metal contact point. One of the goals of the new design was to significantly reduce noise, while making the operation very smooth.

Social Networking

Social Networking

A unique perspective on social pairing.

Divided into four quadrants for incremental introduction: a solid section for complete blockage, a polycarbonate window for visibility only, a grooming bar section for limited touching, and finally a full pass opening.

Upgrade Path

Upgrade Path

Modular inserts for long term flexibility.

This front is flexible! Hinged for full swing opening, horizontal sliding transfer door, and a removable modular section for enrichment upgrades.

6.2 Break-Apart Primary Housing Unit

6.2 Break-Apart Primary Housing Unit

DESCRIPTION:
2-over-2 primary housing unit which separates into two 1-over-1 units for ease of transport. Vertical and horizontal access between compartments is available.

TYPICAL USE:
Single and/or group housing for rhesus, cynos, and similar species.

FLOOR SPACE:
6.2 sq. ft. per compartment

Features & Benefits

A Lighter Weight individual unit with the benefit of ease of transport within your facility.

Trespa ® Composite Panels provide sound dampening and add color to the environment.

Sliding Divider Panels with an assortment of inserts provide opportunities for pair housing and socialization. Divider panels may be constructed of round rod for grooming, clear lexan, 1" opening wire mesh, 1/2" opening wire mesh, or Trespa® composite when socialization is not desired.

Options

Primate Hammock:

Primate Hammock:

This heavy duty, vinyl coated, polyester mesh hammock securely suspends from double perch rods for a thermoneutral, soft resting surface. The hammock is removable and washable.

Small Primate Feeder:

Small Primate Feeder:

The small primate feeder is the perfect solution to feeding biscuits or other dry food items. When not in use the opening may be closed using the Small Primate Feeder Cover.

Roller Panel:

Roller Panel:

Provides foraging opportunities when the rollers are prepared with seeds or treats applied with a sticky medium.

Water/Dry Forager:

Water/Dry Forager:

Animals may fulfill the desire to forage and/or wash food items in a liquid medium. The unit extends from the cage to enhance the complexity of the cage interior surface.

Wil 6.2

Wil 6.2

DESCRIPTION:
A completely flexible modular housing unit for Non-Human Primates. With the purchase of various base frames, wall panels, interstages and other equipment, the WIL can go from a rolling rack configuration to wall mounted units with ease. Additionally, with a change in panels, WIL can also house other species.

TYPICAL USE:
Single and/or group housing for rhesus, cynos, and similar species.

FLOOR SPACE:
6.2 sq. ft. per compartment

Features & Benefits

Ergonomically Designed:

Ergonomically Designed:

  • For the comfort of the caregivers. No individual component in the WIL system weighs over 50 pounds!
  • Zero threshold cage openings improve access and reduce lifting injuries.
  • Converts easily from hanging units to mobile rack units.
  • Rotary tongue latches can be operated with one hand.
  • Quick disconnect removable panels improve sanitization.
  • Minimal extensions or protrusions that interfere with cage movement.

Trespa ® Composite Panels:

Trespa ® Composite Panels:

  • Provide sound dampening and color to the environment.
  • Solid, sound dampening panels enhance the environment by providing security for animals to break eye contact and to break contact with drafts from the HVAC system.
  • Trespa ® retains its closed surface structure even after repeated exposure to heavy cleaning. These properties make it easier to clean and disinfect. In addition, the smooth, sealed surface deters bacteria and prevents the growth of algae, molds or fungi.

Flexible Design:

Flexible Design:

  • Individual units are configurable in a multitude of ways. Use as single, individual apartments, one over one housing, two over two housing, rolling racks or hang on the wall. The possibilities with WIL are nearly endless.
  • Interchangeable enrichment panels prevent the primary cage from becoming stagnate and provides a multitude of feeding and foraging options.
  • Exercise potential in large social insert cage with multiple levels for social structure.
  • The ability to join compartments to form any number of “Library” style housing configurations.

Upgradeable:
