Description

With concern for the increasing amounts of plastic waste in aquatic environments, our tried and tested PERDIX Mink Raft is now available with protective edging to prevent the possibility of polystyrene breaking from the raft. The extremely tough and UV stable plastic edging ensures the polystyrene sheet is not damaged when in use, particularly in flowing water courses where debris could hit the raft.

PERDIX mink rafts are made from a unique combination of recycled plastic sheets and sustainably sourced wood. While the plastic sheets used to form the platform provide excellent resistance to damage while in use, the wooden tunnel keeps weight to a minimum and gives a very stable and secure structure for whatever decides to visit your raft. Incorporated in the tunnel is a lockable viewing hatch to allow for very quick and easy checking of the tracking cartridge. When in trapping mode, two ‘locking’ screws in the hatch lid prevent the cage trap from being removed or falling out of the tunnel when set. All wooden components are protected using a 100% non-toxic and aquatic safe water-based green paint. The platform is held together using very strong UV stable cable ties and therefore no fixings protrude from the underside of the raft that could snag on weed etc. To protect the raft on fast flowing or flood prone rivers, we have kept the platform to GWCT recommended dimensions of 60cm x 120cm for maximum buoyancy and incorporated two industrial strength stainless steel tethering rings. The internal dimensions of the tunnel are designed for the Perdix mink trap (optional) but is also suitable for other makes.

The tunnel is supplied as a flat pack with all required fixings for quick and easy assembly.

The optional tracking kit includes all that you will need to make a tracking cartridge. This includes: 1kg of Buff stoneware clay, 500 grams of kiln-dried sand, a 25cm plastic basket and a 230 x 110 x 80mm block of floral foam.
