Q - What Size are Standard Flat Cats?
A - Standard Flat Cats are 60cm (23.5 inches) wide and 115cm (45.25 inches) tall. There is a border of fixins all round of 5cm (2 inches) (included within the measurements stated) so the Standard Size will fit a range of sizes. To check, just use the sizing chart available here
Q - What are Flat Cats made from?
A - Flat Cats are made from high tensile pvc coated fibreglass mesh. This is amazingly strong and with 5cm wide fixings machined in all around the border it will withstand some really excessive abuse from even the most determined cat.
Q - Can I chat to you about my windows as I am not sure what would be best?
A - Of course, its very likely that I will answeryour enquiry personally. Just use the chat button in the bottom left of the screen or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Q - Can the window fixings easily be removed.
A - The window fixings take a good pull to remove and any residue left on the window frames is best removed with some white spirit.
Q - Are Flat Cats ok wth painted window frames?
A - Yes but bear in mind that when you come to remove the fixings, if the paint is weak, removing the fixings may lift some of the paint.
Q - How long will my Flat Cats take to arrive?
A - We constantly update our delivery page to show you the current delivery times that we are working to. You can see the current times here.
Q - I have irregular shaped windows, can I still have Flat Cats made?
A - The best thing to do is to email me or use the chat button. We have done many strange shapes since 2007 including church windows in Ireland, skyscrapers in New York and restaurant windows... as well as lots of different houses of course. Im always happy to chat so just give me a shout.... Dominic
Q- Can I use Flat Cats on Sash Windows?
A - Yes, traditional Sash windows tend to work where the bottom half is opened and the top half stays static. In these cases you can either cover the entire window or, what some people do is to measure vertically from the window cill to the top edge of the bottom horizontal of the window they have opened... so using this bottom flae as the top frame to attach the Flat Cat to. Confused?... don't worry, i'm asked this question 100s of times a year so just give me a call and I can chat it threough with you so its really clear.
Q - Can you help me with measuring my windows?
A - Of course, if you are at all unsure just use the chat button or email me and I will be able to help you.
Q - How long do Flat Cats take to fit?
A - Usually about 5-10 minutes, sometimes much less. Full instructions are provided and we have yet to have anyone who could not manage to fit them (if I can anyone can !)
Q - Are Flat Cats Strong?
A - Yes they are... have a look at our videos and see for yourself. in 99.9% of cases your cat will just accept them without a problem but, if you have the one cat who will not leave them alone, so much so that you do not feel confident in using them then just send the Flat Cat back for a 100% refund.
