What A Feline! Everglade Builds 26 VEKA 'Cat Pens' For Charity
Veka Group fabricator and installer Everglade of Wythenshawe has completed a 'pet project' of building and fitting almost 30 PVC-U profile cat pens at the Society for Abandoned Animals (SAA).
Everglade – who became a member of Independent Network this year – chose Matrix FS to build the completely bespoke set of animal pens, which cats can live in at the sanctuary until they are re-homed.
Deni Sirovica, co-owner at Everglade said: “We’re used to making home improvements in the area with our doors, windows and conservatories but this is the first time we've built and fit shelters for animals! It may seem like a strange choice to create animal pens in PVC-U but in fact it is a fantastic material for this type of structure. During fabrication, the Veka profile we chose for the project is so good to work with as it can be customised to create the skeleton structure we need and fit flush into the space provided to promote a safe and sound environment for the cats that are going to live there."
Sean Fogarty, from SAA said: “ As a charity, we of course, rely on fundraising and donations for projects like this, so it was important for us to get a quality product fabricated and fit to the highest standard, yet within our budget. That's why we chose Everglade."
“The Veka PVC-U pens will be fantastic as we can clean them easily – which is very important for cats as they don't like to smell other animals in their home – plus with the windows, they can see what's going on around them while still feeling safe."
“The wide windows also mean that visitors to the charity can see all the cats properly when they come to look for a new pet, which is brilliant when it comes to re-homing our 'lodgers'.”
