Description

Our Cork Traction Pads are made from cork fabric with an adhesive backing. The fabric is made with natural cork bonded with a blend of cotton and polyester. This highly durable blend prevents the cork from chipping away like normal cork tends to do on its own. It allows cats to slightly claw into the material for extra grip while being extremely resistant to punctures. Cork fabric is commonly used to make things like handbags, wallets, and shoes.

We’ve tested the material on a ledge on top of a stairway at home to see the results firsthand and after 4 months, there’s still been no sign of wear and tear!

The reason we developed these was to add traction to our shelving. We’re launching these for two items that are designed as stepping stones your cat can use as they navigate throughout the Condo. Cork Traction Pads are available for:

Why Cork?

In addition to providing durable feline traction, cork fabric is a great material to use from an environmental standpoint.  Cork forestry practices are some of the most sustainable forest practices on the planet. Cork’s renewable, biodegradable and can be recycled without producing any toxic residues.

Cork trees are harvested rather than cut down –  Cork oak trees are hand-harvested every 9 years. The trees have a lifespan of around 300 years. The harvesting process does not harm the tree, making it completely sustainable.

Climate Change & Cork – When a cork tree is harvested, it absorbs CO2, which is a greenhouse gas that causes climate change. After harvest, it will absorb 3-5 times more CO2 than unharvested trees. 34% of all cork oak trees are located in Portugal, which helps offset 10 million tons of carbon every year.

Washing instructions – To clean your Cork Pads, we suggest using a cloth dampened with water or making a solution with water and a small amount of soap.

Expand your cat's habitat

Safe Space

Our furniture allows cats to have their own territory that is up high enough for them to feel secure, far out of reach of any perceived danger.

Climbing Outlet

Cats have an instinctual need to climb and scratch. Provide your cat with a positive outlet for these instincts with our sisal-lined poles and posts.

Behavioral Solution

Wall-mounted cat furniture can help resolve behavioral and territorial issues in homes with multiple cats by giving them vertical space.

Improved Design

Meticulously Engineered

Our new generation of wall hammocks is the strongest, most versatile collection we’ve ever created. Every detail of the product is fine-tuned, adding an additional bottom mounting point for increased stability, as well as sanding the furniture tops with a rough finish for increased traction and leaving the sides and bottoms sanded fine for a clean, finished look.

Sustainable Material

Our new design utilizes bamboo, a sustainable alternative to hardwood, which is very durable and water-resistant. It grows at an incredible rate of 3½ feet per day.

Stronger Design

Bamboo is an incredibly strong material, allowing a thinner, sleek design. It’s allowed for a lot of the functional upgrades. Along with our hidden bracket, there’s now an additional mounting point underneath the shelf, which holds the furniture rock solid to the wall.  

Highly Customizable

Our modular design allows for truly limitless options, allowing you to start off small and build on over time. Each mounted top can be easily removed and replaced with shelves, feeders, planters and sisal poles, mounted to face either left or right. You can now adjust the height of your sisal pole, with our new segmented design.

Simplified Instructions

We’ve spent a lot of time refining our instructions to make them easy to follow. We not only show the step by step actions of the furniture being installed, we’ve also added video instructions for the people who would rather watch it in that format. Our canvas fabric now comes in finished sections, allowing for a quicker installation. If you run into any issues along the way, we would love to answer any questions either over email or telephone.

Cat Tested and Approved

When we initially come up with an idea we build the prototype and mount the rough version of the idea furniture in our home letting our 4 cats help us work out what’s working and what doesn’t. Our facility has just built out a cat room where we’re expanding the process even further by inviting employees to bring in their cats to get additional feedback. The furniture has been evolving over the last 5 years, and we feel very optimistic from the feedback we’re getting back from the furniture’s evolution.
