The full ventilation design permits excellent air movement on all sides. This is a great feature for dogs that remain in the crate for long periods of time. The double door crates feature a door on the end and a door on the side.
This full ventilation crate comes in 3 different sizes. The smallest crate measures 36" long, 28" tall, and 24" wide. Most inside wheel-well measurements in trucks, vans, and SUVs are 48" wide. This way you can fit any two of the small crates we offer in your vehicle side-by-side. The medium crate measures 42" long, 32" tall, and 28" wide. The largest crate measures 48" long, 32" tall, and 28" wide. The gap between the bars on the crate is 2".
The top and bottom of the crate and the doors are polished, 1/8" thick diamond plate aluminum. Each door is laser cut, double reinforced, and features a stainless steel, locking door latch with one key. The doors can be latched with or without locking it.
Each side panel of the crate has two recessed handles. The handles are spring loaded and stay flush with the side of the crate when not in use. These handles make carrying the crate safe because you do not have to put your hands in through the bars to move the crate.
There is a welded bar inside the crate side wall to hang a flat sided pail (sold separately). This prevents the dog from tipping over it's water so easily, therefore having a dry kennel to lie in while traveling or at training. You can also hang a crate fan on the outside of the crate.
There is a 1" lip/edge around the inside of the bottom of the crate, so if your dog gets sick or has an accident while traveling the liquids are contained inside of the crate. This is much easier to clean up than having to clean the floor of your truck or SUV.
Aluminum is a perfect material for dog crates because it is lightweight, strong, does not rust, and does not absorb the sun's heat. We use the TIG welding process for all of our aluminum welding because it provides the strongest aluminum weld. This crate is extremely durable and is great for power dogs who get out of plastic kennels.
Our Full Ventilation line of crates are NOT airline approved, but they can be made to be airline approved for a small fee.
