Terms & Conditions of Sale

Thank you for choosing to buy the Oscillot® cat containment system for the perimeter fence of your domestic premises. Before purchasing Oscillot® please read this information;

• Oscillot® is designed to be installed on fences only.

• Every cat has different abilities and every yard and fence has variances which may aid in an escape attempt. What is set out below should contain most cats. However, in rare cases, even where this guide is followed, a cat may escape.

• The minimum recommended fence height for installation of Oscillot® is 1.80 metres from the ground level adjacent to the fence on your side of the boundary.

• A cat must not be able to jump from the ground to the top of the fence. It will be able to do if it has leverage on the way up from objects such as horizontal rails, trellis, vines, trees, sheds etc.

• Installation on fences lower in height than 1.80 metres increases the likelihood of a cat being able to scramble up the fence with enough leverage and steadiness to get a paw under or over the system and gain the traction required to get over the fence.

• Timber fences may need additional cat-proofing measures to limit the climbability of the fence. This can include using polycarbonate sheeting installed below Oscillot to prevent the cat getting leverage to scale up and over Oscillot®.

• Oscillot® installed around the perimeter of your yard can only be effective at containing your cats if all other means of exit have been closed off. This means that at a minimum you must:-

• prevent you cat from using outbuildings, trees, open doors or house roofs to exit your yard.

• Make sure your cats cannot dig/crawl under fences or barriers.

• Block off any spaces between fences and buildings where your cat may squeeze through.

• Remove items such as garbage bins, building materials, barbeques etc. that may assist your cat to scale fences, walls or barriers.

• Remove shrubbery, bushes and trees and tree branches near fences that your cat may use to escape.

• Install tree guards around trunks of trees with branches that overhang fences and buildings.

• The system has been extensively tested and proven to be consistently effective when installed according to our Installation Guide. Additional cat proofing may be required in rare circumstances.

• Although it can help deter stray cats, Oscillot® is not designed to keep stray cats out of your yard or for dog containment.

• You must check if council approval is necessary before you install Oscillot®.

• You must get written permission from anyone affected by the installation of Oscillot®. This may include:-

• your landlord if you are renting; and/or

• your neighbour if you wish to install Oscillot® on a shared fence; and/or

the common property owner if you are in an apartment or retirement village.
