The Transcat Cat Door Clear Door is unobtrusive and ideal for glass.
This has been a faithful cat door for New Zealanders & Australians for over 21 years but the current model is very different to the original.
This Cat Door is unique in that it can be upgraded to an electronic Cat Door by simply attaching the electronic up-grade unit. This can be done either at the time of purchase or the electronic unit can be purchased and added at a later date.
Overall Diameter: 287mm (11 5/6")
Hole Diameter: 267mm (10 1/2")
Actual Flap Dimensions: 180mm wide x 170mm high
Transcat Cat doors are designed to fit into glass doors and panels from 3-6mm of thickness and into double glazed panels of glass.
Installation into most ranch slider type doors is possible where there is a clearance of at least 7mm on the inside of the sliding door and where the cat door is mounted on the outside pane of glass.
Transcat Cat doors may also be fitted to solid wooden panels and doors.
Installation into Single Pane Glass
A circular hole, 267mm (10½”) in diameter, is cut by a Glazier and your Transcat is fitted as described below.
Installation into a Double Glazed Panel of Glass
A circular hole, 275mm (10‰É_”) in diameter, is cut by a Glazier and sealed to maintain the integrity of the double glazing and your Transcat is fitted as described below. Longer bolts are available in lengths of 30,35 & 40mm at minimal cost.
Mounting the Transcat Cat Door into Glass
Assemble the Transcat Cat Door by fastening the ring on the inside of the glass panel to the Cat Door which is placed against the hole from the outside using the four bolts supplied. Longer bolts are available on request for double glazing installation. (The brand name Transcat should be facing out.) The place where the electronic box fits, on both the frame of the door and the ring, should be positioned at the bottom of the door. This part needs to be removed to use the Door as an upgraded electronic Door. Nuts should be fitted finger- tight only, to prevent unnecessary stress being placed on the glass. This is sufficient to hold the door.
Installation into solid wooden panels or doors
Installation is very similar to fitting into single pane glass. The hole size should be approximately 247mm (9¾”) but the size and shape of the hole is not as critical as it is for installation into glass, provided that the flap can swing unhindered.
The ring is not required. Fit the Door with self tapping screws (not supplied) to the face of the panel. The Transcat Especial (electronic) Cat Door requires a 3-6mm thick supporting material such as plywood instead of glass. This is positioned over a suitably sized hole cut in the wooden door.
Cleaning: Remove the door from where it is installed and wash in soapy water using a soft coth. Do not apply spray on lubricants.
