We’ve done it: Britz and Co. has resurrected the ancient pyramids of primate housing!
The much-beloved NHP apartment module and exercise module designs you thought were forever “entombed” in the past are back—and better than ever.
(Our CEO refers to these modules as “Khafre” and “Khufu,” after the famed pyramids of Giza.)
Improved from the original design, our apartment module NHP housing has two parts: The Khafre 1-over-1 NHP housing, and the Khufu activity module. Once you’ve connected the two, your NHPs can enjoy a full-height enclosure with plenty of space for climbing, exercise, roaming, perching, and other vertical movement.
As always, we’ve built in plenty of problem-solving features, including the apartment module’s unique foot pedal with attached casters and posts. Once you’ve rolled your apartment module NHP housing into a room, simply push down the pedal to lock the housing in place. In seconds, the module is stable, secure, and fully immune to the movements of the NHPs inside.
On both the Khafre 1-over-1 NHP housing and the Khufu activity module, you’ll find features and benefits that keep the comfort of their NHP inhabitants in mind—as well as materials that, much like their Egyptian namesakes, will withstand the test of time.
