Modular Large Animal Run

Product Description

From our Modular Animal Caging System (M.A.C.S.) line of housing solution products, the modular large animal runs from Alternative Design allow you to customize from a wide selection of options to fit your facility including door, side, back, floor, assembly and other options designed to help you build the perfect modular solution to house your dogs, swine or sheep.

The modular run system allows an animal facility to choose from a menu of available panel components to create run sizes of 18, 24 and 32 square feet.

A broad selection of options such as doors, floors, feed, water, socialization and metabolism have been designed into the run system.

The modular design provides flexibility for the vivarium to create a run program that best meets their needs while saving the facility both time in delivery and initial investment costs. Future changes to the runs are also more readily accomplished by the modularity.

The Alternative Design Large Animal Run is designed to house dogs, swine and/or sheep.

When designing rooms for the modular runs use 37″ on center widths for 3 ft wide runs and 49″ on center width for 4 ft wide runs. This allows a 6″ to run width as a safety margin.

IMPORTANT: INITIAL CLEANING
All components of this Alternative Design stainless steel product must be cleaned, sanitized and sterilized,
where applicable, prior to being put into service.
This unit is made primarily of 304 stainless steel. Use care when cleaning to prevent corrosion that can
shorten useful life.

Caster Maintenance
Caster used on this equipment was chosen for its suitability in applications where frequent washdowns are

After washing and/or autoclaving, check casters for proper operation. Check the axle nut to ensure it is still
tight (125 inch/pound is recommended). If the axle and/or swivel bearing has to be lubricated, use a high
temp grease.
