Large Sound Cubicle with Double Door and Peephole

Model 83017DDP


Large Sound Attenuation Cubicle for OFA, Cage Rack Activity, CCFC and other units.


This large sound cubicle is designed with the same features as the 83018 Series except that it is larger in size and the slide out tray is an option that must be ordered separately if needed. Each unit is constructed of moderately expanded PVC foam panels that resist moisture and many chemicals. All outside walls are 0.75" (19 mm) thick.

This model features double doors with a rubber seal to minimize air and light incursion and a large covered peep hole for animal viewing. The door hinges allow 180° of movement (twice that of other units) and can be quickly released without tools to remove the doors when necessary. Metal offset baffles are mounted inside to reduce the overall dimensions and minimize wasted space. The offset design for the exhaust fan, air inlet, and cable porthole minimize both sound loss and light incursion common in those cubicles with straight access. A 28 Volt DC ventilation fan and house light are included with each cubicle.

This cubicle may be used with rat activity wheels, open field activity systems, cage rack activity, CCFC, Mouse Place Preference, and other products.
