The Roman Fort is the perfect full setup. Our cats love the Vertical Sisal Pole, but we always had to set up our walls to give them a route down once they got up to the top. For the Roman Fort we combined two 2′ Vertical Sisal Poles with some of our other pieces so that the route down is built into the complex.
Having the hammocks attached to the bottom of the sisal poles allow cats to stretch and claw the poles from the bottom. Having sisal pieces around our home has completely stopped our cats from scratching the furniture. It’s a great alternative to declawing.
This piece is mounted among four studs, spaced 16″ apart. (If your studs are spaced differently, let us know before ordering and, if necessary, we’ll build you a custom piece accordingly for an additional fee.)
All of the brackets come attached for easy installation. All of our furniture also comes with screws and drywall anchors.
*Please note: This is a pretty difficult piece to mount. You are definitely going to need an extra person, to help you with holding the shelves while you mount the pole. Also it helps to have a ruler to help space the shelves properly.

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.
