Zinger Aluminum Dog Crate 4500 Features at a Glance:
Aluminum Construction: ZINGER crates are constructed from lightweight aircraft grade aluminum which is known for its durability and strength. Aluminum crates are perfect for dogs who often destroy or break out of plastic and wire crates. While built to be strong and secure, Zinger crates are light enough to be handled by one person with little effort.
Lockable Slam Latch: Each door comes with a flush mounted slam latch which is keyed for added security while you are away from the crate. Rest assured that someone cannot simply open the crate and walk away with your dog. Made from strong "stainless steel" for durability and to prevent corrosion.
Ventilation: A Zinger dog crate is fully vented down each side and along the back wall to provide maximum comfort for your dog. Our open design allows air to pass freely thru the door aided by the triple rows of lower and upper vent holes which surround the crate. By its very nature aluminum quickly dissipates heat making it a great material to construct dog crates provided there are enough air holes. Lots of adequate venting ensures your dog will remain safe while in its crate.
Airline Travel Approved*: - ZINGER dog crates exceed the strength and ventilation requirements by most airlines. By installing our optional "Airline Rails*" the crate can be used to ship a dog by air. Strong aluminum crates will not crack or be broken by rough handling or shifting cargo loads thereby safe-guarding your dog on route. When you ship your dog in a Zinger crate he is protected. (* Purchase optional Crate Airline Rails. See Accessories Below)
Stainless Steel Hardware: Lock and mounting hardware are made from stainless steel to eliminate rusting and corrosion.
Modular Design: All ZINGER dog crates can be coupled side by side or stacked atop one another to form multiple dog crate systems or kennel banks. Two side-by-side crates may full size truck beds. Will NOT fit most smaller beds such as compacts, imports, or custom trucks.
Crates arrive disassembled in flat shipping box. Need some assembly, but use common, household tools.
Beautiful Finish: ZINGER dog crates are finished in a durable "Silver Hammertone" powder coat both inside and out. The secret to this tough finish is the high temperatures in which it is "baked on" so that it will not wear off. By powder coating the inside as well as the outside it protects your dogs coat from discoloration. Coat discoloration is common when a dog sits in an untreated aluminum crate. The bare aluminum oxidizes and the residue rubs off onto the dog resulting in a grey silvery color. This will not happen in a Zinger dog crate.
Super Solid Doors: Reinforced with solid bars and welded for extra strength the door is built to hold your "Escape Artist". A full length piano hinge and striker plate is standard and the door can be easily reversed to allow for left and right hand opening.

Escape Package Professional Model "P"
The Professional line of aluminum dog boxes are designed to be the most secure and safest of the Zinger dog crates.
The differences between our standard Deluxe models and our top of the line Professional crates has to do mainly with its heavy duty door construction.
On any crate the door is consistently the weakest point and "Houdini" dogs typically target this area in their attempt to escape. In the Professional series we have reinforced the door with extra bars, welds and bracing.
As an added layer of security in the Professional series we have added a secondary Backup Locking Plate behind the lock so that the dog cannot get his teeth into the latch at all.
Professional Series also includes a set of Heavy Duty Handles and a soft foam mat for the dog to rest comfortably.
