This is our Padded Cat bed. The bed is made with a plush cuddle fabric that cats love! The curved entrance to the bed isn't centered, but is a little to the left side so that they have a nice area to lay in. Our big boy weighs 16lbs and though he fills it up almost completely, it is the perfect fit for him and his favorite place to sleep.
The fabric and stained wood bottom colors can be chosen when purchasing. We have many different combinations to choose from.
The dimensions of the bed are 18" x 9.5". The brackets are attached from the top and the bed is built to be mounted into standard 16" studs. We recommend the bed to be mounted into studs to be secure. If your studs are placed differently, leave a message in the notes when ordering and we will mount the brackets accordingly. When at least one side is mounted into a stud, the bed is very sturdy and have been tested to hold 50+ pounds.
How much weight do the shelves hold?
We haven't actually maxed out the weight on our shelves yet, so it's hard to give an exact number. We have tested them at 54lbs, and they didn't budge. We use corner braces for brackets that are attached from the top, so that when weight is applied it pushes the shelf tight against the wall. That creates a very sturdy hold. They do need to have at least one of the brackets mounted into a stud. If you don't have studs avalible, then there is other possiblities like heavy duty dry wall anchors. Home depot has packs of 6 fthat are rated to each hold 65lbs for under $5.
All of our shelves only have one bracket mounted in studs. We've applied 45lbs on ours and they were fine. If I we're going to guess I would say about 50-55lbs would be pushing it.
What if I have no studs to install the shelves. Can they be installed into drywall or plaster?
If you don't have studs available, there are other possibilities, like heavy duty drywall anchors. Home depot has packs of six that are rated to each hold 65 lbs. for under five dollars.
We've never tried these with our raceways, or fabric play place. We're not sure that they would hold tight enough. They get pulled from the side each time a cat jumps on, so we really suggest mounting those into studs.
Do the shelves come with mounting equipment?
All of our pieces come with screws, light duty drywall anchors and brackets attached. Except for our cat bridge. Because it typically sits at a doorway, we don't know where the studs are, so we include brackets but do not attach them.
What do I need to mount the shelves?
You need a screw driver, a drill, and a stud finder.
Also a level, if you want them perfectly straight.
