Enclosure Flooring for Zoos

HippoTile - Zoo Enclosure Flooring


HippoTile is a new concept in enclosure flooring. Wet drains away through the tile. Warm and dry, much less bedding is wasted. Kind to feet and joints. This system is different from rubber matting in many ways.  Most importantly, the wet drains through the flooring and then away completely.  It never needs to be lifted and cleaned underneath.
