The Indiana Jones Bridge is a beautiful piece of furniture and one of our cats most loved pieces. Each bridge is hand-crafted and built to order. Our big cat Ickle often falls asleep lounging on his back in the center of his bridge. Cats of all sizes can utilize this bridge for relaxing or to travel across the span of a doorway or other gap. If you would like to draw up inspiration, please visit this page of past custom bridges we have done. Each bridge is built with safety in mind. We rope the bridges up with paracord is rated to hold up to 160lbs. Roping is weaved 3 high along the entire bridge, for added stability and to act as a railing. The bridge slats (7.5 wide) are securely attached to the two 9x 18 platforms. This piece comes standard with rustic twine roping as a railing along each side. For a modern look, we can use long-lasting paracord for the railing instead of twine. This upgrade is available from a drop-down menu when you order, for a small additional charge. All of the brackets come detached from the platforms so that you can mount them based on where your studs are located. We recommend each platform being mounted into at least one stud. All of our furniture comes with screws and drywall anchors for mounting, as needed. The length that you order is the distance you want held between the two end platforms. Please do not include the two 18 platforms in your measurement. Its a good idea to add on a couple inches for wiggle room. We do custom bridges! We can make most any bridge sent our way, for example, a bridge spanning from one wall to one perpendicular to it. We can also build bridges longer than the listing allows; weve built bridges as long as 14 feet, but extra-long bridges are more complicated to build and require extra time. If you are interested in a larger and/or custom bridge, send us a message with the details and we will send you a quote.
