It makes sense Crusty. I only give the information to put it out there for everyone, so we increase our knowledge on the different things available for torts.
Good luck and keep us posted on your project.

It will need to be fitted in a frame with aluminium profiles that can accomadate the thickness and rubber joints, like in the video.

If you know people who have some knowledge/skills on alumimium windows, they might be able to use their skills to build one for you.

This one is good too. This is the one that is on the cold frame of my torts. 16mm double-skin sheet, so very good for insulation. 92% UV transmissible.

The name of it is Alltop 16mm.

I guess to build the frame, adequate aluminium profiles will be the ones to use.

Why don't we create our own forum like this one?

And all the members can subscribe to the new forum and we can continue to help all hermann tortoise keepers and answer the questions. 

I have just taken the initiative to buy the domain www.hermann-tortoise.com so we can use this one to build our new forum website and Karen and Sue can be the administrators.  I have a friend who can help to build the forum. We can use pictures of our own tortoises etc to make the forum look nice... so there is no copyrights to pay on the pictures.


What do you think?
