Instantly Increase the Useable Space in Your Zippi Run
Rabbits love to hop, skip and jump, and with the new Zippi Platforms your bunnies will have even more space in their Zippi Run to enjoy.
The Zippi Platforms provide new heights and possibilities for exercising, playing, grooming and resting. Not only do the platforms give your pets an even bigger area to enjoy without interfering with the floor space below, they also transform your pets' run into a fascinating bunny playground with multiple levels to explore.
Please note: The platforms are only compatible with the Omlet Zippi Rabbit Runs, not with Omlet's Outdoor Rabbit Run or a DIY enclosure.
Enrich the Run With New Levels to Exercise and Relax
Compared to a one-level run, having an additional floor in your rabbit’s enclosure boosts exercise opportunities, helping the bunnies activate muscles that they would use in the wild to climb up and down underground warrens. Jumping on and off a raised area helps to keep muscles and bones strong, which is why platforms are recommended as an essential bunny accessory by vets and animal charities.
Adding new levels and accessories to your rabbits’ run will also encourage exploration and adventurous play, stimulating their minds and activating their natural instincts.
Hang an interactive and slow-release feeder, such as the Caddi Treat Holder, above the Zippi Platforms for your rabbits to search out and enjoy!
Safe, Sturdy Structure Designed to Fit the Zippi Runs
Zippi Platforms are incredibly strong and will not flex or bend when your rabbits are on them. The platforms all come with a wire support frame which adds extra stability to ensure the floor feels safe and sturdy underfoot, so rabbits of all sizes will be able to enjoy the platforms to the full without any worry!
The Zippi Platforms panel packs and Corner Platforms have been designed to perfectly fit the double height Zippi Runs, and they easily attach to the side mesh panels at any height to create a fascinating structure that your rabbits will feel safe running up and down exploring.
"Very sturdy product and easy to fit. Rabbits eat on it, relax and play. It’s a great way to utilise the higher space in the run and create more space for the bunnies.”
Entertain Your Pets With Zippi Shelters and Play Tunnels
For a happy and healthy bunny, it is important to provide your pet with a range of exciting toys in their run to encourage physical exercise and mental stimulation. The Zippi Platforms are a great way of making space in your rabbits’ enclosure for even more toys!Provide a cosy hide on top with the Zippi Shelter, a place where your rabbit can go for protection from the elements, a quick disco nap or for a thrilling game of hide and seek. Thanks to the specially designed Zippi Shelter Fixing Pins, the Shelter can be firmly attached to the platform, making sure your rabbit can have a completely relaxed nap. You can add fun Play Tunnels above or below the Zippi Platforms too, for bunnies to explore like burrows in the wild.
Add More Platforms Any Time With Extensions Kits
The Zippi Platforms offer a customisable and modular solution, making it easy to find the perfect kit for your Zippi Run setup. If you choose to expand your Zippi Run in the future, you will easily be able to add more platforms, either to make the top floor space deeper, or to place a new system of platforms on the opposite side, so your pets can run down one ramp and straight up another!
While the Corner Platform cannot be extended, you can easily install a couple of Corner Platforms opposite each other for your rabbits to skip between. And don’t forget, you can add additional accessories such as Play Tunnels and Caddis at any time too!
Rabbits Will Love Looking Out From the Elevated Position
As well as providing an exciting additional level to the run, your rabbits will also benefit from the safe and secure feeling they get while watching the world from a vantage point high up on their platform, almost like a lookout tower.
Use our range of Zippi Run covers to provide weather protection around your Zippi Run so your rabbits can enjoy their Zippi Platforms and stay warm and dry. A Zippi Shelter could be positioned on the Platform to add a cosy hide for wet and windy days, and bunnies will also appreciate the sheltered spot the platforms offer below the extra level. It’s the perfect place to relax and sleep, or to get some shade from the sun.
Keep Platforms Clean With Easy to Wipe, Non-Slip Surfaces
The Zippi Platforms are easy to keep clean, ensuring a happy and healthy environment for your rabbits. Simply hose down or wipe clean with a pet-safe disinfectant, and all components of your Zippi playground will come out good as new. Keeping your rabbits’ run safe and hygienic has never been easier!
As well as being strong and sturdy, the Platforms also have a non-slip finish to ensure your rabbit feels safe to run and skip across the floor without fear of slipping over.
Pets Can Use All Year, With Insulated Panels and Shade Below
Rabbits adapt well to cold temperatures, enjoying outside play throughout winter, and the Zippi Platforms are a weatherproof accessory your rabbits will love to explore all year round. The Zippi Platforms are insulated to ensure the floor under your rabbits’ feet is a comfortable temperature. Place Zippi Run covers over the platform area to keep them dry for rabbits to enjoy in wet weather.
In summer, the additional shaded area below the Zippi Platforms offers a comfortable space where your pets can snooze away hot summer afternoons, making sure there is never a day when your rabbits can’t enjoy their new run accessory!
"When used under a cover, the platforms offer a lovely dry surface where they can give themselves a good clean. An excellent addition to their run, like a loft conversion for bunnies.”
How to Use the Zippi Platforms in your Zippi Run
Do: allow two Zippi Run panel lengths (96cm) for the rabbit to safely run down the ramp, as shown by the arrow here. Zippi Platforms should be fitted to an enclosed double height run, and platform panels should fill the width of the run.
Don’t: install Zippi Platforms in a single height run for rabbits, as it will be too cramped for them, as shown by the red arrow here. If you have 2 or more platforms they must fill the width of the run with no gap. A corner platform can be installed by itself with the correct support (included in corner pack). Zippi platforms cannot be fitted to open playpens, Zippi starter packs or Omlet's Outdoor Rabbit Run.
Frequently Asked Questions
A corner platform can be fitted in any size double height Zippi Run, or if you want multiple panels, you should fill the width. For example, if your Zippi Run is 3 panels wide, you should install 3 platform panels to fill the width.
The Zippi Platforms are made from HDPE with steel wire frame supports. Each panel measures 48.4 x 48.4 cm, the ramp measures 84 x 24 cm, and both are 2.5cm thick.
While tough, the Zippi Platforms are not completely chew proof, and some determined rabbits may be able to mark the plastic. We recommend additional strong chew toys for rabbits who love to chew!
No, the platforms are only compatible with the Zippi Rabbit Runs.
