View Full Version : C&C How to make it stronger

10-24-13, 12:26 am
Currently I am in the middle of building my C&C I have two of the three stories done which will be home too five pigs once complete my question is the middle area are not as spring as I would like them to be and they kind of lean in at the middle.

Example: http://www.guineapigcages.com/photos/closed-cages/p10973-3-story-c-amp-c.html

When I add my coroplast will it support it any ideas how I can strengthen it? I'm using all cable ties thanks!

In the Guineapigcages store they sell support rods that are really strong

Are you using cable ties?

Try adding wood for support.

Dope should have thought of wood that's probably what most of the cages I see use

Also if you do one of the sides or front with swing/drop down fronts, you can reach in easier or slide your trays out for easier cleaning. If you make your coroplast trays with drop down fronts you can sweep it all out into a garbage pail. Just use velcro for the fronts instead of tape.
