Cat Flap Fitter Burntisland Scotland (KY3): Fitting a cat flap doesn't only save you the inconvenience of opening the door every time the cat needs to stroll out or in, it also affords your cat more independence and boosts it's all round quality of life. Cats that are kept inside, just like people, can show signs of irritation. Allowing your cat accessibility to outside world via a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. If you elect to go with the cat flap option, you'll then have to decide what type of cat flap would be best.
The simplest sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an external door and a flexible material is hung over it to offer protection from the weather. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and will rarely sufficient for most cat owners in Burntisland, who would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it might be suitable for a fence panel or shed door.
This standard model is still far from ideal since it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your house, nevertheless it can be somewhat improved upon by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot leave or access your house. Once again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar collar could perchance access your house. An improvement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.
A model of cat flap that's can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Burntisland feline entry security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one cat it will take multiple entries. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is nearby, only allowing access to animals that have a microchip.
Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold currently have a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can enable access into your property only, be fully locked, allow exit only, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This will provide you with a range of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night. In line with your cat's and your needs, there's even the possibility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the more advanced models.
Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be really easy if you've got a solid wood door on your Burntisland home, and reasonable do-it-yourself capabilities. But, if you are hoping to install it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to ask for outside help. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BURNTISLAND
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps cannot be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulation attributes as well. In fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.
A reliable Burntisland cat flap installer will meticulously get the dimensions of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed unit will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take one or two weeks to produce. When your new panel of glass is delivered, the installer will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. It will now be possible to fit the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as I mentioned above, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Burntisland. It is generally advisable to bring in a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are hesitant about creating a big hole in your door. A project of this sort is fairly inexpensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your pet will be climbing through a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. Having said that, certain uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which can cause some issues. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it may be easier to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut in your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an external wall. This form of installation is definitely better left to the pros, because it calls for considerably more skill and equipment to execute. There are a couple of options for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angled (through pillar) model. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole cut into your wall. A cat flap can then be fitted to each side of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Burntisland - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it is not working properly, or is damaged, it's possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. Your cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new cat flap. The glass will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
