Zilla Screen Covers with Center Hinge 48x13
All enclosures need a lid to help prevent your pet from escaping. Screen lids also promote healthy airflow and give you a way to easily place heat lamps, UVB fixtures, and plant lights! The black mesh stands up to the high temperatures that heating bulbs generate, and the long-lasting black steel frame will keep its shape through years of use.
The Zilla Screen Covers with Center Hinge is perfect for habitats that require frequent access due to its unique hinge along the length. This allows entry without the need to remove the heat or light fixtures.
For best results, use with Zilla Screen Clips.
Fits tank size: 40 long, 55 gallon
Dimensions: 48.5"L x 14"W x 0.75"H
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Does this fit snugly to the tank or require clips?
The screen only rests on top of the tank, and it will still prevent something from escaping if heat lamps are resting on it, pushing it down. But to play it safe, it is best used with screen clips to make it extra secure.
2. Will this support the weight of my cat?
While it is possible, every effort should be made to prevent your cat from sitting on the lid of the tank. There is no guarantee that it will support the weight of your cat, and you also risk knocking over any heat lamps you have and injuring your precious pet.
3. Will the bar across the center affect my light fixture?
Your fixtures will need to be placed according to your pet's care; there should be enough space around the center bar for your lights.
