Sizes have changed - not all sizes pictured above are available.
Glide-ariums™ are a permanent cage alternative for your sugar gliders. They also make excellent travel cages because of the ease of tear down and set-up. They can be conveniently transported in a travel carry-all.
Glide-ariums™ are made of sturdy vinyl coated polyester and are available in a variety of colors. Glide-ariums™ and frames are made to order, so please allow 3-6 weeks for delivery. If you need your Glide-arium™ by a specific date, please contact me prior to placing the order to ensure I am able to meet your requirements.
You can order the combo (Glide-arium™ & frame) or just the Glide-arium© if you already have a frame. Standard frames should fit. These do not stretch like the old style screens. Existing frames may need to be trimmed as I have found that all frames are not identical. It is recommended to order frames at the same time to ensure a quality fit.
Each frame made by Glider Nursery is tested to ensure a quality fit to your Glide-arium™ prior to shipping. A rubber mallet is used to obtain a snug fit between the pipe and the connectors. DO NOT force the mesh onto the frame. Doing so will result in ripped seams as this material does not stretch or give. If the mesh does not go onto the frame, the frame was not assembled properly.
To clean your Glide-arium™, it is recommended to rinse out the larger screens in the shower with warm water. Smaller screens may fit in the *washing machine, on gentle cycle, mild soap, and cold water. Do not bleach, do not place into the dryer. A mild 10% mixture of vinegar and water may be used.
To hang cage accessories in your new Glide-arium™, you must have fleece pole covers or large links. Do not hang or attach anything to the mesh; doing so will damage your Glide-arium™. (See photo below.)
Please keep in mind that the darker colors have better visibility than the lighter colors.
Standard sizes and uses are as follows: Color Options:
The "ER" (16.5" x 16.5" x 30") - hospital/rejected joey
Cottage (18" x 30" x 36") - pair/travel
Villa (30" x 30" x 48") - pair/trio/quad
Chateau (30" x 30" x 70") - pair up to a large colony
(All measurements are approximate.)
The "ER" is strictly for a small hospital or rejected joey cage, it is not to be used as a permanent or overnight cage. The other sizes are used for permanent cages for pairs; the Villa and Chateau are suitable for trios, and quads. The more gliders in the enclosure, the larger sizes are needed. Many owners choose to have larger cages for their gliders, several have the Chateau for a pair. Bigger is better! The choice is yours!

Sorry, but Glider Nursery does not make frames for other types of mesh cages. Frames must be ordered at the same time as the Glide-arium™ to ensure a proper fit.
Wheel Mount option: $10.00
We can make your Glide-arium™ frame complete with a wheel mount. Wheel mounts are designed for pvc mounted wheels; does NOT work with Wodent™ wheels. Wheel mounts are NOT sold separately.
(Does not work with a side mount Stealth wheel.)
For those that wish to save money and build your own frame, connectors are now available. All frames, regardless of size will require eight 3-way corner connectors. Larger frames (100-gallon and larger) may require four 4-ways. Connectors are for 1/2" PVC. These are offered in sets to save on shipping. If you are unsure of exactly what you need, or would like a different combination, please contact me prior to placing your order.
If you are building your frame for your new Glide-arium™, please do not build the frame until you have received your screen to ensure a quality fit.
Patches for the rare event that your Glide-arium™ needs repaired. The package includes 3 patches that are approximately 6" x 6". Available in black. If other colors are needed, please contact me for availability.
