Our comfortable and secure Apartment Modules incorporate an “over-under” unit design with numerous features to ensure durability and ease of use.

The Apartment Module has two compartments, one above the other. It’s frequently referred to as a “one-over-one” or the “over/under”. The Apartment Module is the foundation of Enhanced Environmental Housing System. It provides feeders, a squeeze-back mechanism, and two secure independent cage compartments. The mesh grid on the cage front has 7/8” square openings to prevent the occupant from reaching through the mesh and injuring workers.
The modules have two-transfer doors located on each side panel. The modular design provides the flexibility to reconfigure your housing system as your primate colony or housing needs change. By opening transfer doors of several adjoining modules, employees can quickly expand linear floor space, create larger social groups, safely “shift animals”, and increase complexity inside the enclosure.
The Apartment Modules are available in three sizes: 6.0 ft2, 9.0 ft2, and 11.0 ft2 of floor space. Popular cage options include:
- Automatic Watering System
- Flush System
- Introduction/Grooming Doors
- View Ports
- Forage Feeders
Each cage compartment is equipped with a small, horizontal (side-sliding) door. The side-sliding door was designed to accommodate safe pole and collar handling by locking open at multiple increments. This safety feature provides easy access to the animal with the capture pole, but prevents aggressive animals from escaping during pole and collar training sessions. Additionally, the entire front door is hinged, so it swings open providing complete access the interior. Custom cage fronts are available upon request.
The four acrylic transfer doors expand linear floor space to facilitate social housing and increase complexity inside the enclosure. Introduction/Grooming Doors are offered as options. They replace the clear acrylic transfer doors to provide various levels of contact between animals in connected modules.
Trigger latch allows one-handed operation of the squeeze back mechanism. The mechanism locks in place at one-inch intervals throughout its full movement range.
Feeder cups have hinged lids that snap closed to reduce feed wastage. Each feeder has an acrylic feed observation window to quickly monitor feed consumption.
The modules lock in place by resting on two front legs via a patent protected retractable docking system. The two rear casters are fixed, to secure the back of the modules, while the transfer doors are opened. Four swivel casters with a side-locking device are offered an option.
