The extremely strong yet flexible poly mesh makes climbing
very difficult, but the safeguard for our cat containment systems are the patented
Cat-Proofer™ extender arms which enable the entire upper
section of the fence to pivot. The cat's weight causes these
horizontal extension arms to abruptly swing downward. The cat feels as if they are falling. Their instinct is the turn so they land on their feet. They cannot do that holding onto the mesh so they release. The end result is that
the cat is safely returned to the ground. Once the cat's weight is released from the mesh, the
spring-loaded extenders immediately return the upper section of the
fence to its horizontal position.
A single 100' Free-Standing Cat Containment System is designed to secure a perimeter of 100 linear feet (30m) but you can construct the system to suit your needs and can use multiple kits to make your system as big as you would like. A single kit made into a square would be 25' x 25' (7.5m x 7.5m) (625 square feet / 56 square meters) but most customers use the back of their house as a "side" allowing a kit to make a bigger overall enclosure and easier access for the cats. One example of a single kit enclosure off the back of a house would be 28' x 42' (8.5m x 13m) so 28' (8.5m) out from the house - over 42' (13m) and back 28' (8.5m) making an enclosure that is 1,204 square feet / 110.5 square meters. A two kit enclosure off the back of a house could be 65' x 65' (20m x 20m) so 65' (20m) out from the house - over 65' (20m) and back 65' (20m) making an enclosure that is 4,225 square feet / 400 square meters.
Our system is built to last. The posts, arms and welded wire are galvanised steel with a black powder coating and all the arm hardware and spring are stainless steel. All other metal components are galvanised or stainless steel and the plastic fence UV stabilised with carbon black and chemical UV inhibitors.
The system is designed to be installed by homeowners so it is not difficult to do (site dependent). If it is something you do not want to do yourself we would recommend using a local handyman. An instructional DVD is included along with written instructions. We are also available to help you figure out how to use our systems on your property and can also talk/email you through almost any unforeseen obstacles you may run into during installation call 07784 091 521 or email.
