HQ - Laviva Bird Cages
The Laviva brand of cages are made out of the same plant as HQ cages. They are made by the same quality standards as HQ cages, but are private labeled by the United States importer.
See information below regarding HQ.
Located in the southern provinces of mainland China, a modern-day highly industrialized manufacturing center, HQ supplies bird cages to the world's markets. Over the course of the past fifteen years, HQ has engineered one of the most comprehensive product lines available and has refined its manufacturing technology to yield the quality and precision demanded of a first line supplier. First and foremost in its engineering development agenda is to provide a safe habitat for the resident bird. Beyond this all-important factor is functionality, serviceability, durability, and styling. So, not only will HQ cages provide a safe and functional habitat for your bird, but they will enhance the beauty and dιcor of your home or building.
In addition to safe mechanical design features, an all important consideration in the manufacture of a totally safe cage is the finish. HQ applies the polyester finish to the cages using a powder-coat paint system at 450 degrees temperature. The HQ paint process yields unparalleled adherence of the finish eliminating the paint stripping problems common with other cages. HQ paints contain only ultra-safe levels of toxic elements. In general, the white color paint is most prone to contain heavy metals such as zinc. The HQ white paint has been tested at Louisiana Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory and the zinc content is reported at 80 ppm, a more than safe level (270 ppm is considered the maximum safe content). The nonporous finishes are very easy to clean as food and droppings tend not to cling to the surface.
HQ cages are packaged and shipped disassembled
for ease and efficiency of transport. Many engineered features make
assembly of HQ cages both rapid and simple. For example, nuts are captive
in the channels so that the assembler need only thread in the bolts, which
are always supplied in more than ample quantity. Food dishes are provided
in ample quantity and are stainless steel. Seed guards, or "skirts" are
also provided and attach with a simple corner-clip method allowing for
easy removal and replacement when cleaning.
