Rope Refuge

Rope Refuge

Our very first animal enrichment product that can be used vertically or horizontally.

It can be at home in Aviaries as well as climbing-animal enrichment areas.

This particular Rope Refuge (pictured) is constructed with (6) 12” Heavy Duty Food-Grade Polyethylene Balls.

  • Multiple animals can play with it at the same time!
  • It can be built in any length, Ball size, wall thickness, or color!
  • Each Ball has a corrosion-resistant perch / climbing handle.
  • They are held together with 1” diameter brown Pro-Manila Rope. These do not smell.
  • The Balls can be site-adjusted without tools to any position on the rope.
  • The standard rope length is 27 feet (but you can have any length you want for a nominal charge) with a woven “eye splice” at the upper end and an “end whipping” wrap at the other end to prevent unraveling.
  • While our recommended rope is Pro-Manila, other options are Cotton, Manila, Polypropylene, Nylon, and (when available) Sisal.

Lots of use for a lot of users.
