Cat Flap Fitter Bishopbriggs Scotland (G64): Installing a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Bishopbriggs property provides your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a happy life. Cats kept indoors, just like people, will often show signs of frustration. Giving your furry friend easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. If this sounds like a good option for you, precisely what style of cat flap should you install?
The most basic type of cat flap, is just that. A sheet of flexible material fixed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. The majority of cat owners in Bishopbriggs would no doubt favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although this may be okay for a shed or outhouse door.
This uncomplicated design is still far from perfect since it allows other animals or cats a means by which to get into your house, nonetheless it can be improved on by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased in it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, given that any other cat in the area who has a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your house. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.
The next level in feline entry security is to fit a cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's micro-chip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is close by.
When you're buying a cat flap, you must make certain it is of a type that can be locked. The majority of cat flaps sold these days feature a four way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, permit exit from your premises only, permit only entrance into your home, or have two way exit and entrance capability. This provides full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there is even the possibility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the higher end models.
If you're pretty decent at DIY, installing a cat flap should not be that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your Bishopbriggs home. But, if you're intending to fit it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside assistance. This kind of installation requires the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented odd job men who are ready to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BISHOPBRIGGS
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. A new cat flap can not be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not merely the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulation properties too. The truth is, it renders the glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Bishopbriggs cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing panel and order a brand new one. As part of its construction this new double glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take one or two weeks to produce. After fabrication, the old glass panel can be taken out, and the brand new one put in. Your cat flap will then be installed.
External Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as we stated previously, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Bishopbriggs. If you are dubious about creating a hole in your front door, it's wise to call a specialist to do the job for you. This sort of project won't be too expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed offers you that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. You or your fitter will need to determine what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for additional security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a steel lining. A one-piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be more economical to swap the panel for a single pane style.
Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could always decide to install your cat flap on an external wall of your house. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, so it is certainly better left to a specialist. You will find there are a couple of possibilities for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. A square hole will be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to allow your furry friend to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Bishopbriggs - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your window, wall or door, but it's damaged or not functioning properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap installer will remove the old cat flap, without damaging the door, window or wall, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
