Thanks to the spacious sliding doors you can easily access the terrarium. Optimal ventilation system with 1 mm perforated plate for better air circulation.

We have two models of terrariums. The 80 x 40 x 40 cm and the 100 x 40 x 40 cm are other models. These are also equipped with a double grille, but have a wider bottom grille.

Main features of the Terrarium Gerbilarium with sliding door

Made of float glass: The terrarium is made of high-quality float glass, which ensures a clear and durable design

Two ventilation grilles: There are two ventilation grilles for optimal ventilation. This allows sufficient fresh air to circulate in the terrarium, which is essential for the well-being of the rodents.

Two sliding doors: The two sliding doors make it easy to open and close the terrarium, giving you easy access to your rodent and cleaning or decorating the terrarium.

Terrariums and Air Circulation: The Magic Behind Airflow

Our Black terrariums are carefully designed to provide optimal air circulation for the animals housed. It has a well-thought-out ventilation system that is beneficial for the well-being of the rodents. But how does this actually work?

Air grille on the top: The terrarium is equipped with an air grille that extends over the entire length of the top. This top grille acts as the outlet for warm air in the terrarium. Warm air naturally rises, and this grille provides an outlet for that warm air.

Second grille Fresh air intake: This second grille acts as the intake point for fresh air from outside the terrarium. Here, fresh air is drawn in from outside through the gnaw-resistant grille at the front. This air is cooler and contains more oxygen than the air inside the terrarium.

Protected grille at the front: At the front of the terrarium there is a protected grille that also runs along the entire length. It is very important to note that this grille is protected with a gnaw-resistant profile to prevent rodents from damaging it.

Natural convection: The system uses the principle of natural convection. Warm air rises and cold air descends. This phenomenon is called thermosiphon. The warm air in the terrarium rises to the top grille at the top of the terrarium.

Air circulation: The natural thermosiphon circulation of warm air rising and cold air sinking creates continuous air circulation. This means that the warm, used air in the terrarium is exhausted through the top grille, while fresh air from outside is drawn in through the low, gnaw-resistant grille at the front.

This air circulation ensures healthy air quality in the terrarium, minimizes odors and prevents the air from stagnating. The result is an optimal living environment in which the animals can exhibit their natural behavior without the risk of respiratory infections due to insufficient ventilation. In addition, the risk of parasites is reduced because the terrarium reduces the humidity thanks to good ventilation. Pests such as parasites, mites, lice, etc. prefer higher humidity.
 

The Benefits of Our Ventilation System

Our ventilation system offers numerous benefits, not only for the residents of the terrarium, but also for the owners:

  • Healthy Air Quality : The constant air circulation ensures healthy air quality in the terrarium, which significantly reduces the risk of respiratory infections.

  • Minimizing Odors : It prevents odors from accumulating, keeping the indoor environment fresh and pleasant.

  • Prevention of Parasites : Thanks to the effective air circulation, the humidity is reduced, which significantly reduces the risk of pests such as parasites, mites, lice and the like. These pests thrive in a moist environment.

  • Temperature control : The ventilation system also helps regulate the temperature in the terrarium, preventing overheating.

Single Top Grille versus Double Top and Bottom Grille

A question that often arises is whether a single top grille or a lid in the form of a grille that covers the entire top is better than a system with two grilles, namely both a top and a bottom grille. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages.

A single top grille/lid can provide maximum air circulation, but this is often accompanied by less suction power. This is because air circulation in an enclosed space is driven by natural convection, where warm air rises and cold air falls. In the case of a single top grille, air circulation cannot be sufficiently stimulated.

A system with two grilles, namely a top and bottom grille, ensures more controlled and efficient air circulation. Air circulation is stimulated by the natural movement of warm and cold air, with the lower opening providing the intake of cool air and the upper grille removing the warm air.

The choice between these systems depends on specific needs and priorities. If safety and control over air circulation are more important, a dual grille system may be preferable.

Is a large top grille that extends over the entire width and length better?

Less suction power! Using a single top grille may have less suction power compared to a two grille system (top and bottom grille). This is because air circulation in an enclosed space is driven by natural convection, where warm air rises and cold air falls. In the case of a single top grille, air circulation cannot be stimulated.

The raised edge height of the terrarium is

The Terrarium has a raised edge at the front, but the height of this edge can vary depending on the size of the terrarium. The terrariums are made by hand, so minor differences and imperfections in the glass are possible.

  • 80 x 40 x 40 cm: The edge has a height of approximately 8 cm
  • 100 x 40 x 40 cm: The edge has a height of approximately 10 cm
  • 100 x 50 x 50 cm: The edge has a height of 10 cm
  • 120 x 50 x 50 cm: The edge has a height of 13 cm

Super leuk terrarium, leuk dat je de dieren vanaf de voorkant kunt benaderen en ik ben blij dat de rand wat lager is ten opzichte van veel andere terrariums.

Ziet er leuk uit, maar let goed op bij de aankoop. Ik kwam er thuis pas achter dat het ventilatie rooster aan de onderkant heel scherp is, en dat hij los zit. Aangezien wij het terarium zelf geïnspecteerd hebben in de winkel was er geen mogelijkheid om te ruilen voor een goede. Zit nu met een nieuwe kooi die ik niet kan gebruiken. Inspecteert de kooi dus volledig, en niet alleen het glas...
