Door Entry Options
The FD (Front Door) entry crates feature one door on the front side of the crate, with a standard back panel on the reverse. As with all Zinger doors, each door is completely reversible and can be opened from either the left or the right.
The SD (Side Door) entry crates feature one door on the long side of the kennel. The door can be situated in the center or offset to the right or left. The side door kennels make it easy to ensure your kennel can fit into tight spaces like the back of an SUV.
The FS (Front and Side) entry crates feature two total doors with one on the long side and one on the short. The side door is available in either a centered or offset position. As with all Zinger doors, each door is completely reversible and can be opened from either the left or the right.
Zinger is one of the ONLY heavy-duty kennel manufacturers to feature a side entry system that makes it easy to fit into the back of an SUV. The offset side doors are also handy for the rear of a pickup truck or SUV with an opening to the passenger doors.
Zinger doors can be fit to open outward to the right or the left, offering owners the ability to situate their kennels in a variety of hard-to-manage spaces.
Strong and Lightweight: Zinger aluminum dog crates offer incredible strength at one third the weight of steel, light enough for one person to lift with ease. Unlike plastic and wire crates lifetime. For security reasons, all ZINGER lock and mounting hardware are made from stainless steel to provide exceptional security and eliminate the risk of rust or corrosion.
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 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.
Modular Design: All ZINGER crates can be coupled side by side or stacked atop one another to form multiple dog crate systems or kennel banks.
Beautiful Finish: ZINGER 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 of the crate, we protect your dog's coat from discoloration, a common occurrence when a dog sits in an untreated aluminum crate. In untreated crates, 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 crate.
- Solid Doors: Reinforced with solid bars and welded for extra strength the door is built to last. A full length piano hinge and striker plate is standard and the door can be easily reversed to allow left or right hand opening.
