Things To Know Before You Buy

C&C Grids and Cage Sizing

Grids are 14” (not 12”) So wherever 2x3 for example appears, it means 2x3 grids. Please note interior and exterior dimensions on the product descriptions.

Brand Compatibility

Not all C&C cages are the same. We are still making the same size and quality grids as we have since 2003. Over the years, many lesser-quality options appeared out there with thinner grids and smaller dimensions. Just something to keep in mind.

Grid Safety
Safe grids are 14” x 14” with 9 holes across, 9 holes down. Openings should be less than 1 ½” for adult guinea pigs. For young or baby guinea pigs, you’ll need to temporarily baby-proof the cage so they can’t reach the grids as they could be tempted to poke their heads through and get themselves stuck. So it’s recommended to put coroplast or cardboard around the cage at least 9” high temporarily  until they reach adult size – generally over 9 months. We also have available our Pig-a-Boo clear half windows that can be attached to the grids for safety.  
Coroplast Facts

Coroplast® is the leading brand of corrugated fluted plastic. It’s known for its rich, vibrant colors, high-quality, and durability. It’s extruded polypropylene twin-wall plastic, chemically inert, and free from additives.

Coroplast® brand mixes color pigment into their resin which is fed into the machines at the time of extrusion. The pigment and resin are fully blended and then extruded, resulting in color consistently all the way through the sheet. The process creates a smooth, sleek finish.

Stacked Coroplast sheets in various colors

Some brands can be ink-printed in a variety of colors on white corrugated plastic, creating a more matte finish, but may deteriorate over time for this application. Some others may use less pigment resulting in less vibrant colors.

Coroplast® comes in thicknesses from 2mm - 10mm. We only use 4mm, which is ideal for cage bases, any thicker is too rigid and unnecessary; any thinner is too flimsy. There's a variety of 14 standard colors. We also have a custom Pink and Lime color made for us at CCCages.

If you do make your own base and can fit a 4x8 foot sheet in your vehicle, Home Depot carries Coroplast® brand in 4mm (white only), and carries all 14  Coroplast® colors and has locations throughout the US and Canada.

Benefits include:


Inert to nearly all acids, chemicals, detergents, grease and oils

Maintains near new appearance for years

100% recyclable & environmentally friendly


Weather and stain resistant

 Material Specification Sheet


All our Coroplast® products are cut with our custom-made hand tools for a smooth, clean edge, so there’s no machined or toothed saw blade that can leave rough edges or burrs.  After 20 years, we've got our cutting and scoring process down to a science, so we can maintain our same or next business day shipping. We’ve also perfected our cutting and scoring process, so there’s no back folding, which can leave crease or crush marks.

We use only 4mm Coroplast® brand materials for their superior quality, richly colored sheets and sleek, easy-to-clean surface which will stay vibrant indefinitely.

Our 16 Color Options:


We particularly like the color combinations of pink and silver, as well as translucent and light blue.
