Build Instructions

     
 

C&C is a concept not a brand so there is no such thing as genuine or fake.

To our knowledge we are the only company in the UK to sell support bars and double panel roof panels.

 
     
  The system is modular to allow you to create your own design. You can build wider, longer or higher.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO USE PANELS FOR A FLOOR
     
 

If you buy a cage with a loft, the panels for the loft floor are supplied. We do not cut out an entrance for a ramp.

The main floor area though has no panels.

     
  Each panel is about 36cm, they connect together with either a zip tie or a plastic connector. The connectors will hold a panel in any of its 8 slots.

     
  Panels are not supplied for a floor. Unless a loft is purchased, the hole in the loft floor is not cut to allow you flexibility. The panels can be safely cut with a pair of pliers
     
  As the panels are roughly 36cm a cage build would be about :

3x2 : 108cm x 72cm
 
4x2 : 144cm x 72cm

5x2 : 180cm x 72cm

6x2 : 216cm x 72cm

As it is a modular system you can build anyhow you want based on the space you wanted to allocate to your pigs, you could build 3x3 or any size you want.

You can also build up with layers or lofts


     
Approx corrugated plastic sizes including lip @ 16cm all the way around are
 

3 x 2 : 142cm x 104cm

4 x 2 : 178cm x 104cm

5 x 2 : 214cm x 104cm

6 x 2 : 250cm x 104cm

     
First mark out your corrugated plastic
     
The main white area on this image shows the base of the corrugated plastic and the coloured in red area shows the lip
                  
     
Score along all the lines we show in blue, then cut along the lines we have shown in green

     
You should now have something like this
     
To create the corner  
           
   
Bend the corners around and either tape or use rivets

              
These are available in our parts section
     
Put the corrugated plastic  inside you cage and you are ready for your piggies !!
     
To create a hinge for a door or a roof use cable ties or our special hinges

                            

These are available in our parts section

 
     
Tools you will need

Scissors or a Stanley knife.
Pen or Magic Marker
Tape measure or Ruler
Ruler or straight edge for marking
Clear packing tape or rivets
 
     
Optional  
  Make a hay feeder from 1 sheet
Get 1 extra sheet and bend it around a piece of wood.
 


 
                  
 

Make a hole in a sheet for the ramp (pliers required)

To fit our ramp (which is actually guttering) just drill a couple of little holes at the end and connect to the hole in floor sheet with cable ties.

Cut the hole to your requirements

 

Make a ramp

You can use corrugated plastic ( but make your you cut it the right way for strength ) with an old off cut of carrpet to allow traction

Or we used to supply an off cut of guttering lined with an old off cut of carrpet to allow traction

 

  Make a standard roof
This example shows a 4 x 2 with loft 1 x 2 using 13 panels and a 3 x 2 roof made from 8 panels, all panels are cable tied together.
The roof is hinged by cable ties at the back of the cage. Please note the lip at the front to prevent the lid falling in the cage

  Make a folding roof
This example shows the use of a metal bar along the middle of the roof panels allowing the roof panel to fold, as the
bar is a little longer than the width of the cage it also acts as a support for the roof.


  New Clip on Roof Panel

2 Roof Panels per purchase

Panel Size (roughly) 72cm x 35cm

These panels are not supplied as standard with any cage
