Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

Should add, that is nothing like the finished version will be - we were testing plastic strengths with different types of screw before deciding on the fixing mechanism... Tiggi was just helping check the load bearing capability of sliding screws!

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

Completely agree with regard to the surface of the shelves, completely smooth or Jemma's fantastic idea of little bumps for added grip. Glittery would be amazing :D have just bought two pink ferplast shelves from you today - wish I'd come on here first and seen that you were making these, I would h...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

If you list the colours or options you’d like to put in a poll I’ll try and edit it into the first post, poll creation is pretty easy however it needs to be set up with the first post which you won’t be able to edit any more. In terms of manufacture, I’m another manufacturing type (well currently I...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

:D This is all very exciting! Sorry if I've missed anything but on the first page I think you said it's a shame you can't do a survey or something? I'm sure there's a way of doing poll type things on here if you'd like to do one for colours or anything else. I've never done one but I bet somebody c...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

i agree, my thoughts exactly. i mean you have the opportunity and the money obviousely to design and make whatever kind of shelf you want. and yet you have chose to copy whats already on the market. i understand you trying to make an improvement but its still a corner shelf the same as ferplast mak...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

Will the metal screw bits be stainless or in any way coated to prevent rusting? That's the worry I'd have with those. As for the shelf surface - the smoother the better if you ask me, less places for yucky gunk to build up and easier to wipe. I'd prefer no lip, but I accept I might be in a minority...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

I'm sure you can get antibacterial in plastic or would that be toxic to rats? Might be an idea especially for ratties with bumble foot? Like some sort of antibacterial additive? Will ask, there are some things which are dictated by the machines and plastic pressures etc (I don't really understand i...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

I find shelves with lips much harder to clean than those that are flat. Although I do mostly use deep trays when a shelf-type thing is needed, which removes the issue. Would that still be the same even if the lips were totally smooth curved (so no groove for bits to get stuck in?) Thank you so much...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

For me the I would like a inch or so lip at the back of the shelf (the two bits touching the cage) to stop widdling out of the cage and kicking out poops. Some "tie holes" in on the floor in the three corners would be good so that you could make a cushion and tie it on (kind of like a seat cushion)...

Re: Plastic Corner Shelves - Design Flaws & Suggestions

I dont know how these things can be so expensive, but I know very little about plastics (apart from that they look nice with glitter :lol: )
