The superior materials used in this range of enclosures is what differentiates them from other cheaper alternatives on the market:
1: We use a STRONG Steel Frame: This is an absolute necessity in terms of keeping your cats safe outdoors. How do we know this? Well, for many years we sold the cheaper & lighter aluminium frames and we had so many issues we were forced to go back to the drawing board and redesign the frames. Yes it is great that they are light, however they are just not appropriate for permanent outdoor use. The enclosures become top heavy, buckling in the corner connectors which aren’t designed for this type of use.
2: Corner Connectors: As mentioned this is the most crucial aspect of the frame . Plastic connectors deteriorate in the sun rapidly, and when there is even moderate winds they become top heavy and crack. We sold them for many years (all different types) and we can assure you from the number of returns that we had that they are not suitable. We now have purpose built STEEL CONNECTORS with a simple pin lock system for assembly. Quick and strong!
3: Netting: We only use genuine CATNETS netting. Tested to maintain 93% of strength after 10 years of outdoor use. We will simply not compromise on the netting quality. Catnets brand is the chosen brand of over 30 installers and resellers across Australia, New Zealand and USA.
- Zipper : Double Sided Zipper Chain
- Shade Sail : FREE UPGRADE to HUGE 1.8m2 Deluxe Shade Sail
- Hammock: Made of the strongest Paw Guard Material designed for continued permanent outdoor use. Won’t fade, deteriorate or stain like others.
Our Classic range of freestanding cat enclosures are made of Sturdy Powdercoated Steel, with heavy duty moulded steel reinforced corner connectors, and Extra-Tough UV stabilised and Professionally Edged Stainless Steel Reinforced 19mm Netting. This makes them ideal for indoors or for outdoor verandahs or backyards.
With thousands of enclosures sold throughout Australia and the world, Catnets has established itself as a main supplier and primary innovator in the cat containment industry. Based on customer feedback and extensive product testing, we've spent the previous 3 years developing freestanding enclosures that satisfied customers 3 main requirements: Our customers have noted that a freestanding cat enclosure must be:
- Safe and comfortable for my cat(s)
- Strong and Sturdy
- Must be affordable for all cat owners
Being made of a sturdy design, our Classic Range Enclosures are ideal for permanent home use as well as being an ideal option for:
- Cat owners who are renting or moving often
- Commercial vet/cattery/rescue home/pet stores etc
- Not all netted cat enclosures are built the same, so here is a CLOSER LOOK at some of the important features .
Although overall weight is of concern, a cat enclosure MUST still be sturdy and be able to withstand the elements. We have incorporated a strong, light weight steel frame, with purpose moulded SUPER STRONG STEEL CORNER CONNECTORS. As netted enclosures are generally top heavy by design, light weight plastic corner connectors just aren't suitable and safe as a design option.
With netting supplied for well over a thousand individual enclosures each year, as well as being the wholesale supplier to over 25 Cat Net Installers and Resellers throughout Australia & New Zealand, Catnets is confident in providing only the best quality netting. Our netting is pre-stretched to tension, is Heat set during manufacture and is of course UV Treated.
The included cat hammock is not made of your usual shade cloth. It is manufactured using a heavy Duty vinyl coated polyester woven fibre mesh that is 20 times stronger than fibreglass mesh. It has quality edging and is super simple to attach in minutes. You can add more hammocks as required.
We are currently also including our PREMIUM Square Shade Sail to further enhance the comfort and aesthetics of the enclosure.
They are pre-fitted with a heavy duty, double sided 10mm NET zipper for entry and exit.
Advantages of a cat enclosure include:
- Safe and cost effective method of allowing your cat some outdoor time
- Light weight - can be moved quite easily from one area to another.
- Suited for balconies where strata laws forbid complete net enclosure
- All components are UV treated and suitable for outdoor usage
- FULL STEEL corner connectors for superior strength
This netting has been designed for use by cats only and is not covered for damage resulting from Dogs or other animals housed in OR outside of the enclosure.
Safety: Due to the size of the netting squares, Catnets recommend kittens (6 months and under) should not be left unattended for prolonged periods within the enclosure. In regards to cat enclosures safety in general, it is advised that all netting is installed as taut as practically possible.
The cover is an excellent option for your exposed enclosure due to the following benefits:
- Added 50+ UV Rated for added sun protection for your cat(s)
- The high quality Oxford material ensures water is repelled, keeping your enclosure and cats dry.
- Fibreglass support poles enable the curved shape which repels water without the need for a drainage hole or water pooling. The support poles insert into the top of the enclosure corner connector.
The use of this Cover will increase the wind catch of the enclosure. With use of the included tie-down cables, the enclosure will be more prone to wind gusts affecting normal performance. Should high to extreme wind conditions be forecast, the cover must be removed to ensure safe operation to both animals, people and property. Your judgement in this situation is required in relation to the positioning and method of attachment of the tie down cables.
This drawstring bag is an excellent option for storing your Freestanding Enclosure frame and connectors.
Our range of freestanding enclosures come with both the steel frame and the netting. When not in use, the netting can be simply stored in the original carton it was delivered in. The Steel Tubes however, are heavier and more difficult to store conveniently. This drawstring bag comfortably fits the poles (and connectors) so they can be kept together (and in good condition) until you are ready to re-assemble.
