Cat Flap Fitter Cambuslang Scotland (G72): Fitting a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Cambuslang house allows your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life. When constantly kept inside, cats much like people, will get grouchy and irritated. Having accessibility to outside world with a cat flap will help your pet to stay fit, both physically and mentally. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is best style of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most basic form of cat flap, is just that. A hole in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat move through. The vast majority of cat owners in Cambuslang would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house, although this may be appropriate for a fence panel or outhouse door.
This simple model can be somewhat improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it's still far from perfect since it allows other cats or creatures to get into your home.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, because any other cat in the area that's got a similar style of collar can easily access your house. An enhancement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
Having a cat flap which can identify your pet's own microchip, is the next level in entrance gadgets for felines in Cambuslang. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your microchipped pets to exit or enter.
When you are buying a cat flap, you should ensure that it is of a type that can be locked into position. For added security, almost all cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system nowadays. Which means that the cat flap can enable only exit from your home, be locked fully, permit only entry into your house, or be set for two way entry and exit. This offers you alternatives for all times of day and night, to control how your cat flap operates. The ability to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with your pet's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the more advanced models of cat flap.
If you are pretty decent at do-it-yourself, fitting your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your Cambuslang home. Although, if it needs to be installed into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it on your own. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a competent cat flap fitter or odd job man, who will have the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN CAMBUSLANG
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the glazing, but it takes away the insulation attributes as well. Actually, it makes your glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Cambuslang cat flap fitter will measure your existing unit and order a brand new one. As a part of its structure this new glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be made, but if you need a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've taken possession of your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. Your cat flap can then be mounted.
External Wooden Doors - The simplest option for new cat flap installations in Cambuslang, as was mentioned previously, are wooden doors. If you are nervous about cutting a hole in your back or front door, it's a good move to contact a specialist to do the job for you. This type of project won't be all that expensive and is well worth doing properly, if having your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some door panels are lined with steel for additional security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap mounted into an outside wall of your house in Cambuslang, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more equipment and skill to install, therefore it is definitely best left to a professional. You could go with a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angle version that permits entry through a pillar. Installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to allow your furry pal to come in and out as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Cambuslang - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it is damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a new one. Your cat flap fitter will remove the old cat flap, without harming the door, window or wall, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to check that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new flap. If it becomes obvious this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the panel will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues.
