Product Description

Add this Rabbit Hideaway Animal Shelter to provide constant access to hiding places for your rabbit within the run. The hideaway allows rabbits to feel safe and reassured by encouraging the natural behaviour to escape and hide, within the security of a rabbit run. They should be provided in addition to rabbits’ main shelter (e.g. hutch and hutch run).

Made of Redwood Shiplap.

Designed to be placed inside the larger runs such as the Range Run run as a place for your pet to feel safe and secure. This shelter will accommodate two rabbits. It has a snug pop hole so as to offer the maximum shelter from the elements. This shelter has a base inside and is slightly elevated from the ground by way of four small feet. Also acts as a free standing unit in your garden if your pet has an open plan living situation.
The roof is completely removable.
The shelter is coated in a teak coloured preservative.
The measurements do not include the overhang in the roof.

Pressure Treatment Options

For maximum protection, we can tanalise your product (a form of pressure treatment) to help give you up to 10 years without the worry from dry rot and normal decay typical to all outdoor wooden furniture. Click here to find out more.

Maintenance

All our products are finished with a Teak water based (non toxic) preservative. The timber should be re-coated with an equivalent preservative every year to ensure the maximum life span of the product.

Oil based coatings are the best as they tend to repel water before it penetrates the timber fibers.

Re-coating is best undertaken on a warm dry day or even better after a dry spell when the timber has had time to dry enough to absorb the coating you are applying.

Additional Protection

Here’s a bit of a tip – get yourself an atomizer spray!

Get yourself an atomizer spray – the sort you do your indoor plant leaves with. Most DIY shops sell what’s called a waterproofing agent. Thompson’s Water seal is a brand name but “B&Q” do their own brand.

Fill the atomizer with it and spray over the external surfaces of the product a couple of times a year. It’s really quick and easy. Don’t forget to wear appropriate mask and gloves. Follow the Health and safety instructions on the container.

We do not use couriers to deliver our products as we believe in a total service from construction to meeting our customers face to face. There is a delivery charge of £18.50 per total order whether your order is 1 or 100 items (applies to UK mainland only – certain areas will incur an additional fee). This payment includes assembly and a final silicone treatment after your product is completed, for additional protection against the elements.

Please note the optional tantalizing process may delay your expected delivery date.
