At Dragon Strand we are now launching our line of Universal Heavy-duty Drainage Trays. These are drainage trays that have extra support along the bottom to give the floor of your cage strength to hold larger potted plants or other interior decoration.

The line consists of two trays, a 25” and 19”. These trays have been designed to fit all major manufacturer’s square footprint screen cages. Heavy-duty or not, this is finally a professional drainage solution for ReptiBreeze, DIY and Jungle Hobbies.

Introduction to Drainage Trays
But first, a brief explanation. Drainage Trays are designed to sit under a cage and catch excess water. This position allows them to collect excess water away from the living space of your chameleon or other reptile. It is extremely important to collect water outside the cage to avoid the mix of water, feces and escaped feeder insects which could be hunted.
Important Note: Trays that are placed inside the cage are substrate trays and should be used only for caging conditions which require a substrate such as bio-active arrangements. Regardless of how they may be marketed by non-chameleon savvy companies, do not use substrate trays for water collection trays. The mix of water, feces and feeder insects is a hygienic nightmare.

Dragon Strand offers standard drainage trays for all of our cages and these are suitable for most applications. But for the keeper that needs the extra back-up for their cage design, we offer the heavy-duty design.

Dragon Strand Heavy-duty Drainage Trays
Heavy-duty drainage trays provide extra support for most robust cage interiors and are universally sized.
Heavy Duty. Thick PVC support beams radiating from the corners in towards the middle give you the option of any size pot that will fit in your cage. The support gives the typical PVC floor panels the strength they need to handle the interior cage design you want.

Functional. Like all Dragon Strand drainage trays, the Heavy Duty line is designed to allow full functionality of your lower service door. Easy access to, and removal of, your PVC floor is important to a regular cleaning regimen.

Universal. Heavy Duty Drainage Trays are universal and are offered in two sizes: 25” and 19”. These two sizes cover all square footprint cages from major retailers. You will find a drainage tray that fits cages from ZooMed ReptiBreeze, DIY Cages, LLL Reptile, Jungle Hobbies, and, of course, Dragon Strand. For cage footprints 24”x24” select the 25” size. For 18”x18” and below cages select the 19” size.
