    Wide Loft (2x2 Grids) with Ramp

    Item #: LOFT-WIDE-1R
    Availability: In Stock

    Wide Lofts Provide

    • Upper level = about 4.5 Square Feet of additional useable space

    Upper Levels are Good For

    • Providing variety to your guinea pigs to help reduce boredom.
    • A potential Kitchen or Hay area separate from the main cage area. But please note, not all guinea pigs will want to use this.
    • A get-away area for some guinea pig pairs or groups who may not get along all the time. When one guinea pig can get out of sight from another, that can go a long way towards keeping the peace and keeping harassment down.

    Upper Level Things to Consider

    • Older guinea pigs typically loose their interest in going up a ramp to an upper level. Some are not able to as arthritis can bother guinea pigs, just like it can people.
    • Not all guinea pigs will want to use a ramp. It can take patience (as in days, weeks or even months) to get a guinea pig to change and adapt. Do not expect overnight results when adding an upper level. Training with pieces of food can help.
    • While a wider upper level provides more space on top, it is more difficult to reach under a two-grid deep upper deck. It is trickier to clean and to retrieve your guinea pigs for lap time.
    • The gentler the slope of the ramp, the better, but more slope also takes up more precious downstairs cage space, so it's a trade-off.

    Counting Cage Space

    Please keep in mind that you should only count the lower level when determining how much cage space is required for your guinea pigs. Upper levels DO NOT COUNT in determining how much space you are providing. They are used occasionally and sometimes not at all by some or all of your guinea pigs.

    Recessed Ramp

    This design provides a more stable cage overall without the need to overlap grids in the front of the cage.

    Versatility

    You get a more professional look and the ability to add or remove a top as desired.

    Ramp Cover

    A nice industrial carpet (which can be washed and replaced as necessary) and comfortable on your guinea pig's feet!

    Our Ingenious Reinforced Ramp!

    We invented the Reinforced Coroplast Ramp! Our Coro ramps are very strong as they are reinforced FOUR times along the length of the ramp with a strong custom wire made just for us. This keeps the shape of the walls and adds to the overall strength of the ramp while at the same time, still giving you some flexibility in how you adapt it for your own use!

    Wide Loft Kit Includes

    • (11) 14" Grids in black or white (safe grids with 1 3/8" openings)
    • (1) 14" Portal Grid in black or white (special cut for the ramp opening)
    • (10) Connectors in black or white
    • 4mm 26.5" x 26.5" Coroplast bottom in your choice of 15 colors! The loft is cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps
    • (1) 27" Ramp with carpet and edging to match grid color.
    • Cable ties that match the grid color. (Using cable ties to reinforce the grid connections helps make the cage extra tight and super secure.)
    • (16) Snap-in Plastic Rivets to fasten flaps.
    • Easy-to-follow, color assembly instructions with photos
    • Two-page Guinea Pig Care Sheet

    NEW! Rivets on the Flaps!

    • We've updated our cage design to make it even easier and more secure than ever! All of our Coroplast bases now come with nice, clean holes -- professionally punched in the appropriate locations. We include our new, easy-snap-in plastic rivets for securing the base. 
    • The rivets, while very secure when in place, can also be popped back open with a little separation pressure should you need to dissemble your cage and are generally reuseable.

    My 2 girl guinea pigs love their loft!! They actually seem to use it like a bedroom as they sleep in it at night. Great purchase as I didn't have the space to build out so I built up!! Always great CS and shipping is super fast.

    Our family started out with 1 piggie in a Midwest cage and ended up with 3, so I scoured this site and the forum and decided to build my own C&C cage. I think it says a lot that, while there is a store here where you can buy complete cages, they also provide detailed instructions for making your own, along with information on all the places you can purchase your own components – they don’t care whether you buy from them or not, they care about the guinea pigs first. So, we built a C&C cage and all was well. We then decided to add a wide 2x2 loft, and since I already had leftover grids (ordered on Amazon) and leftover coro (purchased at Home Depot), I contacted Sue to see if I could just purchase a ramp and a special cut grid (for the recessed ramp). She was so helpful and quick to respond! In the end, we decided to just order the entire loft, including coro, grids, ramp, connectors, etc - deciding to using our leftover grids for future expansion of our cage. I placed my order on 3/26, it was shipped on 3/27, and I got it on 3/29 – 3 days after placing the order. You can’t ask for better turnaround than that! What I was most impressed with, however, was the QUALITY of the components. The first thing I noticed was that the connectors and grids are thicker and sturdier than the ones I ordered from Amazon (I can’t tell you how many connectors I snapped or how many grids I had to “unbend” or “square off” putting my cage together originally). The coroplast base material for the loft is much thicker, sturdier, more solid, and I feel like it’s going to last significantly longer than the coro I bought from Home Depot. I really wish I would have bought my original cage/materials here to begin with, but for sure all future materials purchases will be from the Cage Store! The whole overall experience was great!

    Cccages' ramp is safe and amazing!!

    I get confused pretty easily when I am embarking on a new adventure. I found this site through a rescue, overwhelmed myself with tons of other information, and ended up purchasing our dream cage from someone else! Sue was so wonderful and kind when she gently pointed out that I made this mistake. So I ordered other items, and I noticed that I haven't seen them 3 weeks later. I contacted Sue and she and I couldn't believe that it was already sent and gone! I never saw the almost 30 lbs box :-( Sue was incredible!!!! She not only reshipped my order but also triple checked with me on a daily basis to see if it has been delivered! When it came, the QUALITY of the the 9x9 grids is way better than the other grids I have. The ramp has been throughly thought out and constructed. Compared to the other ramp, this CCcages ramp is safe and amazing!! Thank you Sue for your kind heart and courtesy to a new cavy owner! I will tell everyone about you!!! Laurie

    I have had my piggies and my C&C Cage for 5 months now and I love it. I have two cavies in a 2X6 cage. Its been wonderful. Thought I had two females but :-U one is now pregnant. I had to split them up and get ready for babies so I just bought a 2X2 loft and 2 more grids to cut the 2X6 cage is half. Im excited to see what it will look like. Thanks so much for all the information on the site and from all those that are part of the forum (www.guineapigcages.com).
