Product details
Oscillot® is the original Australian made & owned spinning-paddle cat-proof fence system & is endorsed by the Companion Animal Network of Australia & the Animal Welfare League of QLD. Our Kits include everything you'll need and we provide professional installation throughout the UAE. 

    WHICH FENCE TYPES ARE SUITABLE FOR OSCILLOT®?

    Oscillot® is perfectly suited to metal fences; the Stratco Good Neighbour fence is perfect for installation of this system because of its clean lines & the absence of posts & rails. Oscillot® can also be installed onto other types of fence including Colorbond, Post & Rail, Timber/ Wooden, Masonry, Vinyl, Super 6 and Composite Fencing.
    For Oscillot® to be most effective, we recommend that it is installed to fences with a minimum height of 1.80 metres (6" foot). This recommendation is made because this is the height at which the system has been tested & proven to be effective. For fence heights lower than 1.80 metres, the concern is that a cat could scale up the fence whilst still maintaining enough composure & steady momentum to place a paw under or over the top of the Paddles & get enough of a grip on the fence to scurry over.

    THE CAT-PROOFING PROCESS

    Oscillot® installed around the perimeter of your fence line is most effective at containing your cats if you have identified and corrected all other routes (other than the fence) that your cat may use to escape your yard. 
    Your cat may also be using window sills, outbuildings, trees or roofing to exit your yard. Block off any spaces between fences and buildings where your cat may squeeze through as well as window sills and clothesline structures. 
    Remove items such as garbage bins, building materials, barbecues etc. near the fence line that may assist your cat to scale fences. Also remove shrubbery, bushes and trees and tree branches near fences that your cat may use to escape. 
    In some instances, additional cat proofing of the fence itself can be required when installing on some fence types, especially timber fences with the posts and rails on the inside of the fence. 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 composure to get over the installed Oscillot®.
    Not all of these fences will require additional cat-proofing, but it is something to keep in mind if your cat is particularly agile, determined to escape and can use the horizontal rails as a ladder with ease.
    Even if you have a timber fence with posts and rails, Oscillot® can certainly still be the solution to keeping your cat safely at home! If you find that your cat is managing to scramble up your timber fence and over, even after installing Oscillot®, you can install a sheet of polycarbonate below the Paddles to cover the horizontal rail and top of the vertical post. 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. 

    CAT-PROOFING A TIMBER FENCE
    In some instances, additional cat proofing of the fence itself can be required when installing on some fence types, especially timber fences with the posts and rails on the inside of the fence. 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 composure to get over the installed Oscillot®. Not all of these fences will require additional cat-proofing, but it is something to keep in mind if your cat is particularly agile, determined to escape and can use the horizontal rails as a ladder with ease.
    Even if you have a timber fence with posts and rails, Oscillot® can certainly still be the solution to keeping your cat safely at home! If you find that your cat is managing to scramble up your timber fence and over, even after installing Oscillot®, you can install a sheet of polycarbonate below the Paddles to cover the horizontal rail and top of the vertical post. 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. 

    ELIMINATING PLATFORMS
    Even with Oscillot® installed, hot water units, gas units and air-conditioning units next to the fence line can make a perfect platform for a cat to jump onto and then leap from in an escape attempt. It is recommended that these types of platforms are removed from the equation so that they cannot compromise the cat-proofing of the fence. 
    This is generally as simple as installing a sheet of rigid, clear polycarbonate sheeting on an angle from the outside edge of the unit up to the wall or fence. This prevents the cat from getting on top of the unit, or if they get on top of the unit, it prevents them jumping.


    CAT-PROOFING SHEDS
    We recommend cat-proofing the roof perimeter of sheds where possible when they are within two metres of the fence line. Installing Oscillot® around the perimeter of the shed roof will prevent the cat from jumping on top of the shed and using it to aid in an escape attempt. The same theory applies for most shed types, as long at the roof is at least 1.80 metres high and there is a flat surface on top of the shed on which to install the system.

    WHY DO CATS ROAM?

    Every astute cat owner knows cats are curious about everything which can get them into a lot of trouble! Cat in a tree; cat jumping onto a hot stove; cat getting into a tight space―just to name a few. But, by the same token, they are amazing escape artists. Many cats have a natural inclination to roam beyond the boundaries of their owners property to explore the surrounding environment.
    It's important to understand that cats don't roam because they don't like the company of their owners; They roam because their natural instincts tell them that there may be interesting objects & scenarios to discover nearby. It's understandable even from a human point of view, why would a cat stay within the confines of their yard when it is so easy for them to scale the wall & make a quick exit to explore new surrounds?
    Although we like to think our cats are intelligent enough to avoid danger whilst roaming, unfortunately most cats lack the foresight & awareness to stay completely out of harms way. Cats that roam freely can also become a significant nuisance to the community by using the neighbours gardens & yards as a bathroom, digging up plants, killing wild birds & small animals, & if they are not spayed or neutered, by reproducing and often leaving kittens that end up in shelters.
    It's a misconception that cats NEED to roam to be happy. Cats are generally highly adaptable to changes in their environment & can adjust well to being contained to their own garden. You can make your garden an enriching environment for your cat by adding objects your cat can explore & utilize such as a cat scratcher, a cat tree, a tree stump, cat grass, & a nice comfortable bed.

    ROAMING CATS FACE MANY DANGERS BEYOND THE FENCE LINE

    • vehicle accidents
    • dog attacks
    • cat fights
    • catching infectious diseases from other felines
    • injury inflicted by 'cat hating' neighbours
    • consuming poisons
    • getting lost or 'cat-napped'
    • impoundment by Council Rangers
    • becoming stuck up a tree, in a shed, garage, drain etc.

    NO CAGES. NO NETS. NO ELECTRIC CURRENTS. SO WHAT IS OSCILLOT®?

    Oscillot® was invented by South Australian by filmmaker, Paul Bok, in 2006. Paul noticed an obvious lack of options for cat owners to keep their beloved feline friends safe at home. The only options on the market at the time appeared to be either cages or netting... & let's face it, who wants to turn their yard into a prison! After extensive research & development, Oscillot® was born, right here in Australia!

    HOW DOES OSCILLOT® KEEP CATS SAFE?

    With most yards, installing Oscillot® alone results in successful cat containment. Keeping in mind, if there are trees, or other ladders or platforms next to the fence, these may need to be 'cat-proofed' also so they cannot be used to aid in an escape.
    For Oscillot® to be most effective, the cat needs to be jumping from the ground to the top of the fence in a single motion with no help or anything to climb on the way up!

    Instructions
    Oscillot® Cat-Proof Fence *
    Includes:
    Professional Installation
    Oscillot® Cat-Proof Fence are made up of a standardised 2 metre Paddle length plus fixing components called Dual Knuckle Post Kits. All Cat-Proof Fence includes multiples of these 2 metre Paddles up to the size chosen. Paddles are designed to be cut down to size as required to fit smaller sections of fence, gates, etc. Paddle offcuts can be used which means little to no wastage.

    The number of Paddles and Dual Knuckle Post Kits included in each installation is the average required for full and correct installation on that meterage of standard fence line. 

    If you have gates, a staggered fence line, obstructions on the fence line or plan on cutting the Paddles into many pieces, you may require additional Dual Knuckle Post Kits to complete your installation. 

    Fixing screws are included
    Brackets are included in the Kit if Timber/ Wooden, Brick/ Masonry is selected. Brackets are not required for Metal/ Colorbond fence installations.

    Oscillot® is designed for fences that are at least 1.80 metres in height.
