Messano Dog Bed - Standard or Made-To-Measure Available
have developed a range of 'trampoline' style dog beds.
They are constructed from very robust 10 SWG, 1 3/8" aluminum
tubing, galvanised malleable iron brackets, 610 gsm PVC Polyester sheet and
vinyl tubing caps to protect the floor from the feet.

components have been adapted from materials used for fabricating
handrails on steps, balconies etc. and are therefore very robust
and hard wearing. The PVC polyester is a similar material used for
truck canopies, awning mudwalls, tarpaulins etc and is machined
with tough polyester thread.
beds can be used indoors or outdoors as the materials are corrosion
& rot-resistant, they can be hosed down when muddy, or simply wiped
with a damp cloth. Although they are not chew-proof, for all but
the most determined chewers, the hard aluminum under the fabric
seems to put them off chewing.

aluminum tubing is secured into the brackets by means of hexagon
socket screws (see photo), these
are locked with the hexagon key supplied with the bed and should
only need to be checked for tightness occasionally, especially if
your dogs use the beds as a trampoline launchpad!
The frame also needs to be dismantled when replacing a cover.

puppy has had a few nibbles, the frame has been too tough for her
to do any damage to date.
beds are available in a range of standard sizes, to suit one, two
or even three Golden Retrievers. A three-dog version has been known
to accommodate four adults quite comfortably!
