Bellshill Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Bellshill Scotland (ML4): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Bellshill property provides your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats tend to get irritated and grumpy when kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. Giving your pet accessibility to world outside via a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. If this seems like a good option for you, what kind of cat flap should you opt for?

A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to give protection from the weather, but let the cat climb through. Though this may be appropriate for an outhouse door or fence panel, the vast majority of Bellshill cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.

This standard design can be improved on slightly with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, but it's still far from perfect as it enables other cats or animals to get into your property.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Subsequently, any animal without a special collar can't access or leave your property. Once again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, since any other cat in the Bellshill area who's got a similar style of collar could possible gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products as they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to install the type of cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's own microchip. The micro-chip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one cat). Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.

When you are buying a cat flap, you must make certain that it's of a design that can be locked into position. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for added security. Which means that the cat flap can allow exit only, be locked fully, allow only entrance into your home, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This will provide you with a variety of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there's even the option to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with several of the high end models.

If you're pretty decent at DIY, fitting your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you have a timber door on your property in Bellshill. However, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it yourself. This sort of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who are ready to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazing door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and show them the gate. A new cat flap can't be installed into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the thermal insulation properties as well. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.

It is necessary to get a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Bellshill cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current panel and order the new one. This new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut as part of its construction where your cat flap can be fitted. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take a couple of weeks to manufacture. Once you've obtained your new glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. It will now be possible to install and set up your new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, solid timber doors are the least complicated alternative in relation to installing a new cat flap on your property in Bellshill.

A project of this type will not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat has a professionally fitted flap.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Having said that, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for added security, which could cause problems. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap mounted on an exterior wall of your house in Bellshill, if you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons. Needing much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is certainly better left to a specialist, if it's to be completed correctly. You could decide on a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle version which enables access through a pillar. Installation entails a square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so that your cat can exit and enter your home whenever it wants.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bellshill - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not operating correctly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can still be used as long as the new cat flap is of a similar size. Your cat flap fitter will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding window, door or wall, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it is essential to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new cat flap. If you discover that this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass panel will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
