K9 OFFICER MAX - RADFORD CITY PD
From the inception of K-9 transport, American Aluminum has taken input from Officers in the design and function of the various
platforms. From the standard window and door panels to the RESCUE and COOLGUARD systems created to keep their K-9
partners safe, Officers from around the country have help refine the platforms to add safety, and performance to the product.
The utility of small department vehicles was enhanced when we were asked to make a unit for the K-9 officer and an inmate,
the 1/3-2/3 unit was created. We value the safety and security of the officers using our K-9 inserts as well as comments and
suggestions for design modifications.
We would like to thank and honor those in the field of law enforcement for their contribution and their dedication to serve and
protect. Our over twenty-five year relationship with the K-9 community has made the American Aluminum K-9 Platform systems
the Handlers Choice.
03
Many companies say it: “American Craftsmanship”
But we live it!
Our aluminum fabricators can make just about anything and they have proved it over and over through design and
development of innovative aluminum transport solutions used by Law Enforcement agencies world wide.
Yes, we use state of the art CNC controlled fabrication machinery, but every K-9 Unit is welded and assembled by
hand, by craftsmen who have perfected the process over the 25 plus years we have been in business.
With a steady hand and an eye for quality, our fabricators produce a solid and dependable
K-9 insert that will handle the rigors of police work for years to come.

HOME KENNELS
HOME KENNELS - PRODUCT TESTIMONIAL
On April 4th, 2008 a tornado went through Madison, MS. Our K9 officer was at home when it went through the city.
His K9, Ax, was in his kennel that was purchased from American Aluminum Accessories. The tornado blew a large oak
tree, approximately 24-28 inches in diameter, down and a large limb and part of the upper third of the tree landed
on the kennel. Ax was trapped inside but was unharmed. The kennel sides and roof were damaged. The sturdiness of
the kennel held the tree up and saved K9 Ax.
I was very pleased with the kennel and how it accommodated AX as was his handler. Now we have a higher regard
and faith in the kennel system. The strength and durability saved one K9’s life. We are currently ordering a second
kennel for our second K9.
Thank you for a very dependable product.
Sincerely,
Bill Slade
Ret. Chief of Police
