Free Carluke Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is fixed over the gap to give protection from the elements. Though this may be suitable in a shed or outhouse door, the majority of Carluke cat owners would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their house.

This standard design can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it's still a long way off being ideal as it enables other animals or cats to enter your property.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot leave or access your property. The reality that any other cat in the Carluke area who has a similar model of collar will be able to get into your property, is the drawback with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline access security is to choose a model of cat flap that identifies your pet's micro-chip. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). Whenever your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow just your microchipped pets to enter/exit.

Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazed door or window panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and give them the boot.
