Step 1: Get to know the Purrfect Fence® system

Components are sold in DIY kits to cover various lengths of fences.

Kits contain poly mesh, pivoting arms, mounting plates and hardware.

Because each installation is unique, you may need more pivoting arms and/or mesh.

You will need to supply appropriate screws for attaching arms to your fences. For chain link fencing, you will also need to supply U-bolts.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Other materials may be required to ensure your cat cannot jump over the Purrfect Fence® System. For example, you may need to prune or band trees, or place guards around “launching pads” such as heat pumps or water tanks. Don’t forget to block any gaps in or under your fences.

If you have an extremely agile cat, such as a Bengal, you may need to provide additional cat-proofing measures.

We are happy to offer advice based on years of experience.

Step 2: Measure your fence and work out your requirements

Use the illustrations above to guide you in calculating how many metres of poly mesh and how many pivoting arms you will need.

Mesh: Measure the total length of your fences. We suggest adding 10% in case of an error during installation.

Pivoting arms: Arms should be 3-4 metres apart. If you have exposed fence posts, you will probably attach the arms to them.

Learn more: Refer to the Purrfect Fence installation page for more details, including how to deal with corners and gates.
