COMPARE CAT FENCING
Poly Cat Fencing:
We stock and ship only round strand poly fence mesh with an opening size of
2" or smaller. This poly cat fencing is difficult for cats and other animals to
climb. Our fencing is available in 700 pound breaking strength, 800 pound
breaking strength and 1100 pound breaking strength and is corrosion proof. Our
round strand poly cat fencing is different than most other types of fencing on
the market, such as flat strand, by comparison. Here's some important characteristics to compare:
- Round strand cat fencing is more difficult to tear than flat strand
fencing. The filament strength is in a complete circle as opposed to a flat
- It weathers better over time and holds up better to wind. There's less
surface area to fray and the surface area is round.
- It has a higher breaking strength per square foot
- Lasts longer in sunlight with up to 25 years of useful life
- Has less stretch and the material isn't as soft
- Our fencing also has one finished edge without sharp burrs that can cut
- Our round strand cat fencing is also less visible than comparable flat
strand cat fencing material
Metal Cat Fencing:
Our metal cat fencing mesh is engineered to exclude or contain all types of
animals without getting them caught in the fence. We use 2" or smaller fencing
for that reason. Small opening size wire fencing is also harder to chew because
animals have a tough time getting leverage with their jaws in a smaller area.
Also, the smaller the opening size, the more types of animals you're able to
keep out or in. For example, a 1" opening size mesh is used for most animals and
a 1/2" opening size will keep just about everything out including snakes. In
some areas of the country, some customers have real problems with rattlesnakes
and other snakes.
Cat Fences: How are they different from a regular fence in comparison?
Here's a few ways:
- Most of these cat fence kits include extra fencing that overlaps onto
the ground and is staked to the ground. This prevents cats and other animals
from digging under a fence. It also covers any changes in elevation that a
fence travels over.
- This fencing has some flex to it. It makes it more difficult to climb.
Usually the more flexible poly fence mesh is installed on top of a fence
with metal fencing at the very bottom. Metal fencing is rigid and not
usually used entirely as cat fencing.
- Cat fences typically have no-climb hardware attached to posts. This
means that when cats climb a fence, there is an overhead canopy above that
they can't climb around to escape out.
- By design, cat fences are nearly invisible. The less likely animals are
able to judge the top of the fence the less likely they are able to jump in
- Cat fences can be removable or permanent and most of our posts don't
require the use of any cement.
