Snyder cages are built with rounded corners and raised no-drip front edges that make them sanitary and easy to clean. Polyester resin is poured in all interior corners, and is used to form the face of the cages. This exclusive manufacturing process seals and bonds the unit, and has been the key to durability of laminate lined cages. The entire outside is finished and sealed with three coats of industrial strength paint. Laminate and wood-plastic composite cover the bottom.
This type of construction, available only with Snyder cages, makes them strong and durable. Many units still look beautiful after 35 – 40 years of use. They resist cracking, scratching, splitting and staining.
The solid anodized aluminum gates are built with 1/2″ square frame and 5/16″ rods (3/8″ rods also available) to withstand even the most aggressive animal. Allen cap screws eliminate broken welds and permit easy replacement of any part. Gates easily lift off, and the stainless steel hardware mounted to the cage face is easy to clean around. The handles are easy to operate; optional locks provide extra security.
Installation & Assembly
No assembly or installation is required. Many standard size units are available. As needs grow, additional units can be added. (See the Basic Unit Sizes for dimensions.) Units are generally constructed together in banks, eliminating any seams between them. Pet owners appreciate the neat, fresh look and warm, inviting appearance of Snyder cage units. By survey, pet owners prefer them to cold, clinical looking enclosures.
Customization & Accessories
Many options and accessories are available. Some are pictured on this web site, more are available upon request. A removable partition between any two cages can be ordered, to convert them into one wide cage. Add the convenience of plastic laminate card holders with spring clips. Stainless steel water pans with brackets are available in one quart and one and a half quart sizes. Gate handle locks are a foolproof way to eliminate the chance of an escape. The addition of casters makes a unit mobile and allows for easy cleaning behind and under any cage.
All Snyder cages can be equipped with vinyl mats, floor racks, or removable litter pans. Setups for administering oxygen are available. The use of an IV can be facilitated. Any unit may be ordered with an electrically heated floor. For use with small mammals, birds, and exotics, we offer the Wildlife Gate with thin, closely spaced rods. Cage units with gates on the front and back, or custom size units can be made. Many other options are available upon request.
