Techboard is a highly absorbent, untreated technical grade cage board, with a dimpled top layer to reduce liquid run-off.

Techboard comes in 3 different grades:

  • Techboard- an absorbent top layer of waffled, untreated cage board.
  • Techboard K52- an absorbent top layer of waffled, untreated cage board with extra wet strength bottom layer.
  • Techboard II- a highly absorbent top layer of waffled, untreated cage board with extra wet strength bottom layer.

Highly Absorbent 

Techboard’s top layer is waffled allowing it be highly absorbent. It reduces liquid runoff and movement of fecal materials. Wastes and soiled boards are easier to remove.

Highly Economical

Techboard, depending on the animal population, may be changed every 3-4 days instead of daily. Techboard sheets generally last longer and require less time to change than other cage liners.

Easier Handling

Semi-rigid sheets make handling easy.

Dust Elimination

Techboard will not contribute to dust in the air.

Custom Sizing
