Is it possible to buy wooden boards protected with surface coatings?
Wooden boards are made without surface protective coatings. Most customers want to have natural wood. In any case, every customer can additionally protect the surface with paints as well as protective coatings based on natural oils or wax. Different coatings can cause a change in the colour and the appearance of the surface of wood panels. “Horizontal walking panels for cats” can be simply protected installing various textile coatings, which are available with us as well. Thus, the choice of any desired type of protection was left to the customer.
Are there also plates from other types of wood or colour?
Currently, only plywood made of peeled birch veneer is available. In the future, we will also provide more types of plywood made of other types of wood. You will be notified of all new products of the CubeBox line and accessories on our website www.cubebox.si. Follow our work on the web pages.
Can I place Cubebox products outdoors on a covered terrace or balcony?
All products of the CUBEBOX line, which include wooden components, are designed for dry areas and are not suitable for outdoor use, where there are various weather effects (precipitation, direct exposure to the sun, large temperature changes or constant changes in air humidity). Only products of the STORAGEBOX-NET line are suitable for outdoor use.
Why are wooden strips added to the products of the CatBox line?
We, cat owners want to provide our pets with as much comfort as possible. Therefore, we decided to install various textile additives (padded or non-padded). Since it is necessary to periodically clean or wash textile linings, they must be easily removable and in no way fixed. In order to enable placing padded accessories on upper plates of the assembly so that they can not slip from the wooden base, we added protective strips which prevent this to products of the CatBox line.
We had the idea of setting up an assembly from two CatBox sets. What was left was one board and four Cube coupling boxes.
All basic CubeBox sets are optionally modular and compatible. Because the sets are made up of three boxes as the basic assembly, individual boards and coupling cubes may be left over when connecting the boxes. Save them. You may need them for any replacement or upgrade, as you can also purchase individual components of the CubeBox line.
Can we replace only the worn scratch tower?
In any case, you can buy any individual component elements of the CubeBox line. Easily replace the worn-out scratch tower with a new one. The CubeBox product line is designed in a way that makes it easy to assemble and disassemble without the use of tools, screws or adhesives.
What is the load capacity?
Wooden and metal network shelves of products of the CubeBox line carry at least 20 kg (44 lbs). The load capacity was also checked by laboratory tests. The breaking load of wood plates and CUBE coupling cubes is 75 kg (165.3 lbs) at static load.
Why are the cut-outs in boards with five-holes of the CatBox line not larger?
These boards are designed to provide insight into the inside of the box, since you will want to know where your feline pets hide. At the same time, they represent an interesting “gaming element”, which allows cats to hunt with paws through the openings.
What to do if water gets on the boards?
It is advisable to wipe the liquid as soon as possible, even if the wooden boards are surface-protected with varnishes, natural oils or waxes. Some paper towels may leave residues of cellulosic fibres on the surface, which can be removed with a dry microfiber cloth when the surface is completely dry. Traces may remain on the type of the liquid spilled on wooden boards without surface protection.
Are CUBE cubes also suitable for connecting boards made from other materials?
The CUBE coupling cubes, which can also be bought individually in a set of 8 cubes, are designed for three-dimensional joining or connecting boards with a thickness of 6 mm (0.24 in), regardless of the type of material. When designing your own creation (glass panels, plastic boards, boards made of composite materials …), pay attention to the load capacity according to the material selection and purpose of use. Also note that the greater “roughness” of the material increases the friction force, which increases the reliability of the screw-free or non-adhesive coupling with CUBE cubes.
How is it possible to couple individual boards at an angle?
The CUBE coupling cubes allow three-dimensional coupling of boards at right angles (90o). We are developing the idea of creating additional component elements that will allow coupling of individual boards at different angles.
