The Anatomy of a Shor-Line Cage

Posted by Holly Gibson on

Shor-Line stainless steel cages (or kennels if you prefer!) have been a mainstay of Shor-Line's business for almost seven decades...and some of those cages are still in use! Most of our customers use the cages in banks that are either installed in an owner-constructed raised surface (shown above) or on stationary or mobile platforms.

Occasionally downgrade cages are available and listed in the Outlet. The illustration below shows a new cage as it would look coming out of the box. The durable components, such as the 1"-square tubing surrounding the cage, keep the cages in service for decades.

Note the special features we have designed for animal safety and cleaning ease:

  • Tighter spacing near the latch to keep pets from getting their paws caught.
  • Rounded corners inside to keep debris from collecting.
  • Fluid-retaining lip to keep urine and other fluids from leaking.
  • Quiet-closing hinge made from the same polymer-encased stainless steel used in space projects.

The kennels (or cages) listed on the Outlet often have some minor dents, scratches and/or imperfections; otherwise they are still the same high-quality kennels. The selection will change with availability.

For customers wanting to create a cage bank, Shor-Line offers platforms and wheels to make the banks either raised or stationary. If you aren't inserting the cages into a bank, then there are  top and  side panels to give a more finished look. These accessories are all an extra charge but many find these complete the look for their facility.
