APLS Backrest Guard

APLS Backrest Guard — Protects Litter Hardware and Simplifies Clean-Up

The disposable APLS Backrest Guard traps body fluids and acts as an insulator. APLS Backrest Guard is available in two sizes, with or without anti- microbial properties.


  • Durable version includes washable textile material on both sides
  • Disposable version constructed with absorbent core that traps body fluids
