Cat Flap Fitter Airdrie Scotland (ML6): Fitting a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your house in Airdrie, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats that are kept indoors, much like people, will show signs of irritability. Having easy access to world outside by means of a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both physically and mentally. But, what sort of cat flap is better in your case?
The simplest type of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a bendable material is placed over it to offer some protection from the weather. The majority of Airdrie cat owners would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although this could be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.
As this solution allows other creatures or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced a bit by holding the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or get into your home. The fact that any other cat in the Airdrie area who's got a similar style of collar can still gain access to your house, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap that's can be recognised by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline entry security. The number of your cat's micro-chip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to animals that have a micro-chip.
When you're buying a cat flap, you must make certain that it's of a type that can be locked. Nowadays, almost all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking system for added flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, permit only admittance into your property, permit only exit from your home, or have 2-way exit and entry capability. This will give you solutions for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. The facility to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
Putting in a cat flap on your own can be fairly easy if you've got a solid timber door, and decent DIY capabilities. Under no circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. This sort of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who'll be delighted to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN AIRDRIE
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps can not be fitted into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any kind of double glazing will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its strength, security and insulating attributes. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should never be done.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Airdrie cat flap fitter will measure your current unit and order the new one. So your cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new double glazed unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. This may take a week or more to manufacture, but it is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you've acquired your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. The installing of your cat flap can then be carried out.
External Wooden Doors - The least complicated alternative for new cat flap installations in Airdrie, as was stated earlier in this article, are solid wood doors. It is usually safer to call on a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're hesitant about cutting a big hole in your front door. This will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to finish up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been carried out in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which can cause some issues. A one-piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane style.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always choose to install your cat flap in an outside wall of your property in Airdrie. A wall cat flap entrance requires a little more equipment and skill to install, therefore it's certainly best left to a professional. You'll find there are several options for this installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. This installation calls for a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. A cat flap can then be mounted on both ends of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Airdrie - If your door, wall or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it's not working, or is damaged, it is possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. You local cat flap installer will take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
If the new cat flap is being fitted into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must ensure that the glass has been manufactured, cut and installed in the right way. The glass panel must be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues, if it's found this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
