baboon apartment housing
(BABOON) CONGRESS IS IN SESSION
Britz & Company is pleased to introduce what our CEO refers to as “Congressional Office Buildings”: Baboon apartment housing for your resident congress of baboons!
We offer three options to meet your unique NHP housing needs—and each is customizable, of course:
- 10 sq.ft. apartment modules, designed for Primate Groups 5 and 6
- 15 sq.ft. apartment modules, designed for Primate Groups 5, 6, and 7
- 15 sq.ft. break-apart apartment modules, designed for Primate Groups 5, 6, and 7
What are the benefits of break-apart baboon apartment housing?
Due to the naturally hefty nature of Primate Groups 5-7 housing, it can be incredibly heavy, inconvenient and challenging to move. (This especially poses a challenge if you’re working in an older facility that’s lacking big doorways, or if you have a smaller team.)
Luckily, our break-apart baboon apartment modules are designed to split in two, creating a pair of fully mobile units you can easily maneuver down hallways, into sanitation areas, or anywhere else in your facility you need to go. We’ve even built in handy storage brackets on the sides, where you can drop in the drive shafts for safekeeping once you’ve split the baboon housing unit in two.
