In different countries, layer cage prices are affected by various factors. This is also a common phenomenon in real life. In Nigeria, for example, a set of layer cages costs about $60. Of course, prices will vary in different regions. Moreover, the material and model of the chicken cage are also important factors affecting the price.
In reality, people put forward higher requirements on the type and quality of battery cages. In Nigeria, farmers will find out when choosing layer chicken cages. Even for chicken cages of the same style, prices may vary.
Main Factors Affecting the Price of Layer Battery Cages
The price difference of the battery cage is mainly determined by the following factors. Especially depending on the material.
1. Material type. The material of the layer chicken cage plays a key role in the price. Different materials have different characteristics and costs, which affect the overall price level.
2. Cold galvanized. Cold galvanizing, also known as electro-galvanizing, is characterized by the formation of a thin galvanized layer on the surface of the battery cage. Although the surface is smooth and bright, compared with other materials, its corrosion resistance is weaker. Generally, it may start to rust after 2-3 years of use, and its life span is about 6-7 years.
3. Hot-dip galvanized. Compared with cold galvanizing, its galvanized layer is thicker, generally above 80 μm. This thickness of galvanizing gives the cage excellent corrosion resistance, allowing it to withstand harsh environmental conditions. The service life of hot-dip galvanized layer chicken cages can reach 15-20 years, however, due to its complicated manufacturing process and high resource costs, the price is usually higher than other materials.
4. Spray coating. Spray coating uses powder coatings, which form a strong, corrosion-resistant phosphating film on the surface of the layer battery cage. While this finish can provide good corrosion protection, it can also accumulate chicken manure on the cage surface, making it difficult to clean. In addition, this type of coating is easily affected by external environmental factors, and may suffer from aging and peeling problems.
5. Zinc-aluminum alloy. Zinc-aluminum alloy layer battery cages are directly welded with zinc-aluminum alloy wire. The welding process requirements of this material are relatively high. Because poor welding may cause rust on the surface of the zinc-aluminum alloy. However, with the right manufacturing process. The service life of this chicken cage can reach more than 10 years.
When choosing layer battery cages, in addition to considering the price, the durability, lifespan and maintenance cost of the material should also be weighed. Understanding the characteristics, pros and cons of different materials can help you make an informed choice.
Other Factors Affecting the Price of Layer Cages
In addition to the material, the price of layer cages is affected by many factors, including brand, quality and after-sales service.
1. Brand influence of poultry equipment: The brand of poultry equipment plays an important role in pricing. Long-term operating and large-scale manufacturers usually have more mature quality control and after-sales service systems, and customers have a higher degree of trust in them. This is also one of the reasons for the different prices of products with the same specification.
2. Quality level of battery layer cages: The higher the quality of the cage, the higher the price usually will be. For example, layer chicken cages manufactured using high-quality materials, proper welding processes, and meticulous manufacturing processes are not only durable but also last longer, which will affect their selling price to a certain extent.
3. After-sales service of poultry equipment manufacturers: Good after-sales service will also affect the price of chicken cages. If the manufacturer can provide timely and effective after-sales support, the problems encountered by customers in the use process can be solved in time, which may increase the cost to a certain extent, thereby affecting the selling price.
In short, there are many factors in the price of layer chicken cages on the market, not just the material. In the purchase process, in addition to considering the price, we should also pay attention to the quality of equipment, brand reputation and after-sales service. It is not that the higher the price, the better, but to find the best cost-effective option. Choosing a manufacturer with excellent performance in the professional field will be able to provide you with more advantageous products and services.
