ADDITIONAL CAT PROOFING
Additional cat proofing of the fence itself can be required when installing on some fence types, especially timber. This is due to the 'climbability' aspect, where cats can sink their claws into the timber whilst scaling the fence- giving them the leverage required to scale with enough speed and power to get over the installed Oscillot®.
But don't worry... Oscillot® can certainly still be the solution to keeping your cat safely at home! If you find that kitty is managing to scramble up your timber fence and over, even after installing Oscillot®, you can install a sheet of polycarbonate below the Paddles, about 40 centimetres wide should do the trick. This will prevent the cat from being able to get any traction near the top of the fence, preventing the scrambling over and, in conjunction with Oscillot®, making your fence cat proof. For flexible polycarbonate sheeting, check out something like this Suntuf Handi-Roll.
The minimum recommended fence height for installation of Oscillot® is 1.80 metres. If your fence doesn't meet this heigh requirement, and replacing the fence isn't an option, you can consider increasing the height with rigid polycarbonate sheeting. We recommend using 4.5mm thick UV treated polycarbonate available in Australia from Dotmar.
