I want to add a second story to my cage. I was wondering what those of you who have multi story cages used for your ramp construction.

One of my ramps are two grids bent on each side. One slips into the other and I can make it the length that I want. It has worked out well for me. I added a piece of carpeting.

I also did the same thing, two grid ramps bent, may take a while to get the about the same, connect them together and I used cable ties to connect them to the side of the cage and top level. then I layed cardboard on the ramp and then put fleece on it which I take off and wash and replace. Good luck on your second level...

I think two layers of coroplast hot glued together 20 inches long and 4.5 inches wide with fleece or something for grip works great.

I used coroplast and added coroplast sides for safety. Also I taped shelf-liner to the ramp for grip and it can be easily replaced when it gets dirty.

My big boys could never use just coro. They would bend it in a heart beat.

I use a bent grid and then coroplast secured by cable ties. Take a peek at my pigtures.

I purchased plastic ramps from a cage company (please don't burn me at the stake). When I first got my pigs I bought a petstore cage and when I made my C&C I used the ramps from that. When I remodeled my C&C I needed another and bought another one from the same company. (It's all about the match-y thing).
