Cat Flap Fitter Buckhaven Scotland (KY8): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your property in Buckhaven, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. When continuously kept inside, cats as with people, will get grumpy and irritated. Giving your cat access to the outside world by way of a cat flap can help to keep them mentally and physically fit. So, you think it's a good idea, but exactly what is best type of cat flap for your pet?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to give a bit of some protection from the elements. Whilst this may be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door, most Buckhaven cat owners would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their property.
This simple design can be to some degree improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it is still far from ideal because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your property.
The next step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your house, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. The downside is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar could perhaps access your house with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier.
The next stage in feline entry security is to consider the kind of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's microchip. The details of your cat's microchip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is close-by, only permitting entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you must make sure that it's of a design that can be locked. For added flexibility, most cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, enable only exit from your home, enable only entry into your house, or have two way exit and entrance functionality. This provides you with choices for all times of day and night, to control precisely how your cat flap operates. A few of the top-end models can be set to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your pet's and your requirements.
If you are fairly good at DIY, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you have a wooden door on your home in Buckhaven. But, if you are looking to install it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to ask for outside assistance. These situations require the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or odd job man, who'll have the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BUCKHAVEN
Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the thermal insulation properties as well. In actual fact, it renders the glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.
A professional cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazed pane and have a local Buckhaven glazing firm make a new one. This new panel will have a pre-cut hole as part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it might take a couple of weeks to manufacture. After fabrication, the old glass panel can be removed, and the brand new one put in its place. The cat flap will then be fitted.
External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for installing a new cat flap in Buckhaven, as was stated earlier, are wooden doors. It is normally wise to employ the expert services of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are hesitant about creating a big hole in your door. This type of project won't be too costly and is worthwhile doing properly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, because some doors have a steel lining for additional security. The models of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be advisable to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into a door, you could always elect to install a cat flap into an external wall of your property in Buckhaven. This form of installment is definitely better left to a professional, because it calls for considerably more equipment and skill to accomplish. You could opt for a straightforward tunnel style, or even a right angled version that allows access via a pillar. This installation involves a neat square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so that your feline friend can enter and exit the house whenever it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Buckhaven - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning correctly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can still be used as long as the new cat flap is of a comparable size. You local cat flap installer should be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without harming the door, wall or window, and install a new flap for your cat.
When your installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be necessary to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new flap. The pane will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues, if you discover this isn't the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
