Saxon 90 x 20 met project mesh I/N 0022275
Want to make a cat tunnel.
Is this suitable and is it easy to fold into three?
Best way to fold?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @catstuff. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
I believe you will find it relatively easy to fold into three if you take your time with it. I would advise using a flat piece of timber of straight edge to fold the mesh over creating the right-angled corners.
If you are intending on placing these tunnels on grass then I would suggest using weed mat pins to secure them to the ground. If you used the weed mat pins you could just create a semi-circle with the mesh instead of having to create corners.
We look forward to hearing more about and seeing the results of your cat tunnel product.
Please let me know if you need further information or had questions.
I believe the mesh would be strong enough but I would encourage you to fix it down at regular intervals to prevent the cat escaping. I would suggest placing a weed mat pin every 30cm. For extra security you might like to upgrade to Whites 8 x 300mm High Strength Tent Pegs - 10 Pack.
Please let us know how you go.
we bought a small cage and made the tunnel adjoining. Tunnel is not fully linked yet.
It’s not the movable sections that we wanted! Those appear to be four sided tunnels because you need the section ends to be able to be joined - ie some sort of frame end.
Our big cat got a fright one day and busted out of the cage corner so been a bit edgy going in there now.
we are pretty disappointed.
Many thanks for updating us on your cat tunnel project.
I am sorry to hear you are disappointed with the results. Is there anything you would like to change that our helpful members might be able to provide advice on?
Please let us know how we could assist further .
I still think the three sided tunnel is great so cats are on the grass.
just need to work out a way to join sections that can be easily undone to move.
im a visual person and if we had seen one we would have found problems to anticipate!
Will keep thinking!
Thanks for your help Mitchell
We wanted to do that.
Even bought a supply of carabiners that I had seen used in an article to join sections.
we could probable turn back an edge to reinforce on the edges to be joined - try to make it straight and firm like an outside edge,
