Cat Flap Fitter Bellshill Scotland (ML4): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your property in Bellshill, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. Cats which are kept indoors, as with humans, will often show signs of irritability. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your pet accessibility to outside world with a cat flap. However, what kind of cat flap is better for your circumstances?
The most fundamental form of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat move through. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and will not be good enough for most cat owners in Bellshill, who would doubtless favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although it could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.
This basic design can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, however it's still a long way off being perfect as it enables other creatures or cats a way to get into your property.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your house, therefore preventing some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, since any other moggy in the area who has a similar collar can easily access your property. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
The type of cat flap which is can be recognised by your pet's microchip, is the next stage in feline entrance security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is close by.
Being able to lock it in place is essential no matter what cat flap you're buying. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking mechanism for added flexibility. Which means that it has the capability to enable entry into your house only, be locked fully, enable exit only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This will provide you with options for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap works. A few of the more expensive models can be set to perform particular functions according to the time of day, based on your cat's and your needs.
Putting in a cat flap yourself can be quite easy if you have a solid wood door on your Bellshill house, and decent do-it-yourself abilities. Although, if it is going to be installed into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should not even attempt it yourself. These types of fittings require a professional installation by a dependable cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BELLSHILL
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps can't be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the panel, but it takes away the insulating properties as well. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.
A trustworthy Bellshill cat flap installer will meticulously take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. So that your cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazing pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take one or two weeks to produce. Once you have taken possession of your new modified glass pane, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to fit your cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for cat flap installations in Bellshill, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are timber doors. If you're a little dubious about creating a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you might be better off contacting an expert carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should give you the satisfaction of knowing that you'll end up with an expertly fitted cat friendly flap, and that the job has been done properly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many instances. It pays to know the internal construction, as some uPVC door panels are steel lined for added security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it may be better to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut a hole in your doors, whether for aesthetic or security reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. This form of installment is undoubtedly better left to the pros, because it calls for much more equipment and skill to accomplish. You'll find there are a number of possibilities for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) configuration. A neat square shaped hole will need to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Bellshill - If your wall, window or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. Your cat flap fitter will take off the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding wall, door or window, and install a brand new flap for your cat.
When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it will be essential to check that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. If it is found that this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass pane must be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues.
