Your Guide to Cat-Proofing with ProtectaPet External Corner Brackets

When it comes to cat-proofing structure like sheds, summerhouses, and inset gates, ensuring stability and durability is paramount. One crucial component that plays a significant role in achieving this is the external corner bracket. These brackets are ideal for maintaining the length of the overhang around external corners, providing both structural support and aesthetic appeal.

External corner brackets are designed to reinforce corners and edges, which are often the most vulnerable parts of any structure. By securing these critical points, you can prevent sagging, warping, and other forms of weakness that can compromise the integrity of the system.


Choosing the Right Bracket: Left or Right?

One common question that arises when using an external corner bracket is determining whether you need a left or right bracket. With a little imaginative thinking, here's how to choose:

  1. Picture yourself in front of the shed, summerhouse, or Cat Fence Barrier.

  2. Use your left or right arm to signal the direction in order to continue the system. For example, if the shed corner is on your right, you'll need a Right External Corner Bracket.

Additional Uses: Cat Fence Barriers

External corner brackets aren’t just for sheds and summerhouses—they can also be used with cat fence barriers. Here’s how:

External brackets can be used to finish off a cat fence barrier section by attaching a hook and wire to the mesh. This continues the overhang, ensuring there are no weak spots in the system that a cat could exploit.
