The cubes (or Gitter-Steckregal or Metall-Steckregal) can be found at Plaza (written in italics so that you know what is part of the name and what isn't). The store's website address is www.plaza.de (http://www.plaza.de/) and it has 2 branches: Warenh채user, which just sells normal products, like Wal-mart, Target, etc. The other branch is called Baum채rkte which sells things to build with and improve the home, like Lowe's. Only the Warenh채user branch sells the cubes.

Ok, it might get confusing here, so let me know if I don't describe everything well enough: The Warenh채user branch, has 2 branches of it's own: Plaza West (west) located in Schleswig-Holstein, one of the 2 most northern Bundesl채nder ("states", like in America, but for some reason, they cannot be called states, I don't know the difference) in Germany, and the other is Plaza Ost (east) located in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the 2nd one. Here is a map of Germany to give you a visual http://www.emansworld.com/TRAVEL/travel.html?trav_fr-map-germany.html (http://www.emansworld.com/TRAVEL/travel.html?trav_fr-map-germany.html) Schleswig-Holstein is shown in red at the top of the map, and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern next to it, is shown in green.

Off the subject, the little yellow spot under Schleswig-Holstein is Hamburg, the "state" that I live in, and you can see the big dot inside it also labeled Hamburg, which is the city I live in.

Here is the list of cities in Schleswig-Holstein that have the cubes: Husum, B체delsdorf, Kiel, Bad Oldesloe, and L체beck, Geesthacht.

Here is the list of cities in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern that have the cubes: Scwerin, and Ludwigslust.

I have a picture of the cubes, shown here http://f2.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/psyche15/detail?.dir=/Yahoo!+Photo+Album&.dnm=26f6.jpg (http://f2.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/psyche15/detail?.dir=/Yahoo!+Photo+Album&.dnm=26f6.jpg) The measurements say "approx. 35 x 35 x 35cm". They are availible in colored (red, yelow, blue, and green) or black and is a 6 cube set. According to the sales paper, it normally sells for 19,99 궗 (Euro) but for the week ending on the 22 of May, was sold for 14,99 궗, "25% cheaper". If one of the stores ran out of cubes, you can call another Plaza store and they will ship a box to the store nearest you at no extra price.

Here is another website http://www.schrammshop.de/pdf/Schramm_050_Gitter-Regal.pdf of a store based in M체nchen that has the cubes (accessories and even the rounded corner grids) as well, but each grid is sold separatly.

I don't know what Coroplast is called in German, but as soon as I find out, I'll post it.

Here is the German thread I posted with all the same details, but in German, of course http://www.meerschweinforum.de/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=34882

Schrammshop doesn't sell them anymore. I just bought the last nine grids today. When I talked to the vendor, he said they had never sold well, so they kicked them out. So now we have to try Kiel, M체nchen or some other remote place on the map. *hides from all the Kielers and M체ncheners in this forum* *G*

.... do 9 grids qualify for a "big" cage??

YAY! I found something very close to the cubes at ZOOPLUS.de. Check this page: www.zooplus.de (http://www.zooplus.de) and follow the links "Kleintiere" -> "K채fig & Auslauf: Freigehege". It's very cheap - only some 17 Euro, shipping included. You can't use it to build second levels but it's great for making a really large floortime area.

As for Plaza, I just called them and they were slightly surprised, as if they had never heard of cubes as shelf material. But a nice lady promised to try and find out if they store them. She'll call me back.

04-28-05, 02:45 pm
Argh. She called me back and said she had no success asking. Advised me to try a metal shop. How come people act like they've never decorated a store in their life? Sorry guys, I tried. :(

any of you thinking of selling on ebay? you should do!

05-15-05, 07:38 am
I'm not selling, I want to BUY!

Oh well. I've spent the last two hours hunting for Coroplast in Germany. There is a product called Coroplast but it's some kind of duct tape. I have found a thing called "Polykarbonalplatte". Might be worth a try.

I haven't had any luck finding the cubes so far.


Polykarbonal ist ein Kunststoff, der in der Baud채mmung verwendet wird. Man bekommt es in Hohlkammerplatten, leider gibt es so gut wie keine brauchbaren Bilder von Querschnitten durch solche Platten. Aber dieses Zeug scheint mir noch am ehesten dem Coroplast 채hnlich zu sein, und es besteht eine Chance, es in 철rtlichen Baum채rkten zu finden.

Mit den Gittern hatte ich noch kein Gl체ck.

I found this site last night: Kuhn-Design (http://www.ladenbau-kuhn-design.de/shop/xtcommerce/product_info.php?products_id=1169) and ordered the grids. I'll try using them for the base and the long sides and will use my nine "proper" cubes for the short sides. Should work. I'll keep you informed.

How is the size of the grids? They spacing between them seems kind of big. Are you sure you guinea pigs won't be able to fit through them?

05-29-05, 01:26 pm
Maybe - I'll have to see them. If the spaces are too big, I'll use them only as a floor beneath the PVC.

05-30-05, 04:27 am
Or you could overlap them together, like people overlap grids to babyproof their cages.

05-30-05, 02:12 pm
They're too big for that - 1,80 metres long! They'll fill up my living room as it is, and I fight for every cm left for me to get in and out of the room.

Also ich habe ja auch schon versucht herauszufinden was dieses Coroplast ist!
Ich hatte mal als Kind einen Koffer von Motorola, das war ein Werbegeschenk und daraus gebaut!
Leider habe ich ihn nicht mehr.

Bei SOS von Pro Sieben habe ich auch mal diese Doppelstegplatten gesehen. Aber die Kammern sind viel Gr철횩er und dicker und lassen sich bestimmt nicht so leicht verbiegen. Es scheint festeres oder dickeres Material zu sein.

Stegplatten aus Polycarbonat Habe ich auch gefunden, das wird wohl vor allem gebraucht um Gew채chsh채uschen zu verkleiden.


Hier ein Link.. die meisten Stegplatten sidn abeb durchsichtig udn so 채hnlich wie Plexiglas.

Coroplast hei횩t bei uns doppelwandige Stegplatte. Ich suche noch. :)
