Cat nets for balconies, terraces etc. - More security for felines
If you're looking for a cat net for the balcony, window or indoor area, you will find a large selection of high-quality models in our online shop. These are tried and tested cat nets that have proven in practice their suitability for the wellbeing of our feline friends. This allows you to guarantee more security for your cat.
Why do you need a cat net?
Cats are curious by nature and enjoy exploring their environment. This may well prove a risk to your cat on balconies, especially in flats on higher floors. A cat net for balconies provides straightforward protection against falls. As well as on balconies, you can also use cat nets at windows or inside the home to make certain areas inaccessible for cats. For instance, a cat safety net effectively protects other pets like rabbits from cats.
What should you focus on when buying a cat net?
A cat net is constructed similarly to a wire mesh fence. Make sure that the mesh is much smaller in width than the diameter of your cat's head. Otherwise, not just the protective function will go missing! Cats may also get caught in a cat net. Use a maximum mesh width of 5 x 5cm as a guideline. You will find cat safety nets with a narrower mesh size in our online cat shop. Other important quality criteria include the material's robustness, weather resistance and tensile strength. Nylon cat nets perform very well here. A wire-reinforced cat net provides additional long-term resilience.
Which cat net is best suited for balconies?
In order for a cat net to offer effective protection on balconies, there must be no loopholes around the edges. So first measure the length and width of the balcony and choose a cat safety net with at least these dimensions. If there is another balcony above your own, you can easily include this as part of the protection. Attach the top edge of the net to the bottom of this balcony and you will have perfect all-round protection.
How is a cat net attached?
There are different ways of attaching a cat net. It can be attached to a balcony with poles without any drilling whatsoever. These are usually telescopic poles, which can be attached at the desired height. Another option is attaching the net with dowels, hooks and a fixing rope. If you choose a model like this, there will be interference with the structure of the building. Hence, the landlord's consent is required in rented properties. Courts have ruled on several occasions that the landlord may not demand the removal of a cat safety net without interfering with the building structure.
Which cat net is the most discreet?
With sufficient stability and tensile strength, most cat nets are so thin that there is no notable visibility impairment. Choose a transparent net if you want to make it even more discreet visually – they are virtually transparent. Visible dirt can be wiped off the cat net with a cloth and some warm soapy water. However, you can deliberately choose a colour that goes well with the surroundings. For instance, a green net looks good on a balcony with plants.
