Below are some of the more popular bespoke finishes that we've used but because Hicat® products are made-to-order we have the ability to fabricate to any customer specific request so if you have something particular in mind then please get in touch.
We've imported a limited supply of a grey coir finish, which can be specified as an external & internal finish - this bespoke finish option is similar in colour to the original Concrete Coir that we imported in 2010 but batch dyed as opposed to pigment painted so the previous issues with unfinished fibres showing through is a thing of the past.
We were aiming for a neutral grey close to the original Concrete Coir but the Slate Coir has a earthy look to it because of subtle green/blue/brown tones in the yarn.
Twist Pile Internals
Our units can be specified in White or Grey Twist Pile internals as an option to the standard Black Twist Pile.
Coir Shelves & Internals
Another bespoke finish option is to specify the internals of the unit in Coir as opposed to Black Twist Pile - Coir is slightly better to grip than Twist Pile so if you think your cat will be spending lots of time running up & down the inside of their Hicat® then you may want to consider this finish noting that the shelves & internal can be finished in the standard Black Twist Pile or Coir.
If you are looking for something very special then a wool covered Hicat® is hard to beat & they make-up some of our finest creations to date - our favourite was a range produced by Crucial Trading called Tibet.
The carpet is very soft to the touch & has a wide rib, which is sized similar to the coir but machine woven onto a black fabric membrane so technically more regular in terms of weave than the coir - it's also as easy to climb as coir, doesn't shed fibres & creates a cleaner aesthetic finish when compared to the standard coir.
Please note we have limited stock of the Tibet Wild Cat but Tibet Wolf is no longer available to order - sorry.
Coloured Twist Pile
Coloured Twist Pile internals were once available as special finish option on our units & we can still source bright carpet to use on the inside of units but not in the same colour range that were previoulsy used as these are now discontinued.
Customers Own Material
We can look at covering our units in basically any material & have previously fabricated Hicat® in sisal, seagrass & jute finishes.
