Questions about the product
Oscillot® is a system that is designed to keep pet cats safely and effectively contained to their own yard.
Cats use a jump-grab-climb action to scale fences, Oscillot® is designed to counteract this technique by preventing the 'grab'.
The system itself consists of a series of four-bladed aluminium paddles, which are mounted along fence lines between end posts containing bearings. When a cat tries to jump and scale the fence, they place a paw on the paddle, which then spins; the cat cannot get traction and falls safely back to the ground.
Oscillot® is fast-becoming the most popular choice for cat owners to contain their feline family members because it is designed for DIY installation, there are no wires, cages, netting, or electric shocks, it is very unobtrusive and blends aesthetically with your yard and it is 100% Australian made and owned from high quality materials.
Oscillot® is made from several components including the Paddle, Dual Knuckle Post Kit and Bracket.
The Paddles are made from high quality extruded aluminium that is then powdercoated to its final colour. The Dual Knuckle Post Kit is made from long lasting, hardwearing acetal plastic that is designed to withstand outdoor weather extremes. The Bracket is made from stainless steel that is then powdercoated in a black colour finish.
Oscillot® is available in Cat-Proof Fence Kits ranging from 2 metres up to 120 metres. Each Cat-Proof Fence Kit is made up of Paddles which are all a standard 2 metres in length. The Paddles can be cut down to size as required. If you required a meterage that is not offered as standard on our website please contact us as we can supply custom size Kits, e.g 36 metres.
Oscillot® is engineered and manufactured entirely in Australia
Absolutely! Oscillot can be easily uninstalled from your old fence and reinstalled on your new fence when you move house. If you find you need some replacement screws or components simply contact us, we're always happy to help.
We don't promote Oscillot® to keep cats out as such. Whilst having Oscillot® installed around the perimeter of your yard can certainly help to deter neighbouring and stray cats from entering your property, it is not fool-proof. Cats may still find a way to enter using trees, sheds, garages etc. in the neighbouring yards to get up and over the system and into your yard.
We cannot recommend using Oscillot® to stop dogs from scaling fences because at this stage, there is no evidence as to effectiveness in keeping dogs contained nor has the required testing been carried out.
No. Oscillot® has one of its blades slightly weighted which prevents spinning or making noise in the wind.
Questions about installation
Yes. We recommend that Oscillot® be installed on fences at a minimum height of 1.80 metres or 180 centimetres. This is the height at which the system has been extensively tested and demonstrated to be effective.
The risk is heightened when installing Oscillot® against our recommendations in an apartment or unit that is several stories off the ground, because the cat may jump up, causing the paddles to spin, the cat will become off balance and the Paddles rolling may cause the cat to fall out of the balcony, rather than back in, resulting in a long fall to the ground.
At least 1.80 metres in height &
• Metal (Colorbond, Post & Rail, Good Neighbour, Galvanised)
• Timber (Paling, Lap & Cap, Horizontal Slat)
• Super 6
• Walls (Masonry, Concrete, Fibro)
We recommend that you obtain permission from your neighbour in writing if you plan to install Oscillot® on top of a shared fence. It is recommended that you check with your Local Council if you are not sure.
We are yet to come across a local government by-law that required permission to install a product such as Oscillot®. However, to avoid issues arising, we recommend checking with your Local Council and getting their response in writing before installing.
Although we do not offer on-site measure & quotes or installation services, we have a list of Installer contacts across Australia offering their services for the installation of Oscillot®.
