Introducing ACRE™ — a fresh new take on beauty, sustainability and durability.

ACRE is a brand-new material manufactured in the USA from upcycled rice hulls, a byproduct of rice production. The rice hulls give ACRE its amazing strength, water resistance and organic feel, making it indistinguishable from real wood. ACRE is an inspiring idea that proves sustainability doesn’t mean sacrificing performance.

With ACRE, it looks, feels and handles like real wood—but with far less maintenance and a smaller environmental footprint.  It is for these reasons that we have added this revolutionary new material to our panel options for all of our Maximum Reptile™ enclosures. 


  • Resists water, weather, and pests
  • No splintering or cracking
  • Industry-leading Limited Lifetime guarantee, for a period of 80 years


  • Look and feel of real wood, including realistic grain
  • Easy to sand, stain or paint with any water based, zero VOC paint or stain (no fumes and baby and pet safe).


  • Manufactured in the U.S.A. from upcycled rice hulls in a zero-waste facility
  • Free of phenol, formaldehyde and adhesives, and does not produce off-gassing
  • 100% recyclable

Easy to Handle and Install

  • Lightweight yet strong and straight
  • Can be cut or drilled with common woodworking tools
  • Uniform texture and finish-ready edge throughout
  • Accepts screws and nails easily
  • Easy to silicone and bond

Great enclosure for my ball python

Overall I am very pleased with this enclosure. It arrived earlier than expected and well packaged. Only took about 20 minutes to put together and all that is needed is a screwdriver. It is very solid and sturdy once constructed but quite heavy so you'll need helping moving it once assembled. Has maintained heat and humidity well so far. My only minor complaint is that it doesn't take up stain as well as normal wood. While it looks very nice when stained it also ended up being a bit sticky from the excess stain, be sure to wipe the stain off thoroughly after applying.

Great Enclosure!

This was my first reptile enclosure purchase and Custom Reptile Habitats provided a great experience! If I had any questions (I had a lot!), they were quick to respond and were very helpful. I was also extremely happy with how quickly it shipped and arrived. The enclosure itself is really nice! You can tell it's a high quality piece from how well everything fit and screwed together. I also really like the customizable top - something I have not seen from any other brand. I am still setting up the interior of the enclosure, but I have high hopes for it! Definitely recommend!

Beautiful Enclosure! 4x2 Evo 4 Acre

Overall this enclosure is very sleek. The sustainable wood was a good choice. I was a bit worried about the flexibility in the slats when assembling at first, but when once it's all put together it is really sturdy. The glass door upgrade was also a good choice. I had to build my own stand being that it is very hard to find a 4x2 enclosure stand out there. Very happy with this purchase!

Steven Harold

The 4×2×2 Evo 4 ACRE enclosure with the background and sides kit is exactly what I was hoping for. Good quality materials and a realistic look to the rocks really made this build stand out. It was a fun project to work on, and I had no problems with it. The wait time for everything was long, but well worth it.
