Cat Flap Fitter Clydebank Scotland (G81): Installing a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Clydebank home gives your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life. When continuously kept inside, cats as with humans, will get grumpy and irritated. Having easy access to world outside by means of a cat flap will help your furry friend to keep fit, both physically and mentally. However, what kind of cat flap is best for your circumstances?
The most rudimentry style of cat flap is basically that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. While this may be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Clydebank would favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house.
This basic design is still far from ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your home, but it can be improved on by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.
A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. This means that any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot access or leave your property. The fact that any other moggy in the Clydebank area who's got a similar style of collar can still access your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these devices and can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
The next level in feline access security is to install the kind of cat flap that identifies your cat's own microchip. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). The flap is unlocked anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting entry or exit to pets that have a micro-chip.
No matter what cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in place. Nowadays, most cat flaps on the market have a four way locking system for extra security. This allows your cat flap to enable exit only, permit only access into your home, be fully locked, or have 2-way exit and entry capability. This will give you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. In keeping with yours and your cat's requirements, there's even the option to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with some of the more expensive models.
Installing a cat flap yourself can be pretty easy if you have a solid timber door on your Clydebank house, and decent do-it-yourself skills. But, if you are planning to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you must seek outside assistance. This sort of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who'll be delighted to take on such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN CLYDEBANK
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in your double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the insulating attributes as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A reliable Clydebank cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your current panel and order a custom-made one from a local glazing company. So that your cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazing pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction. This could take a week or so to produce, but it's basically the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. After fabrication, the old glass can be removed, and the brand new one put in. It will now be possible to install your cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest alternative for new cat flap installations in Clydebank, as was mentioned previously, are solid wooden door panels. If you are somewhat nervous about creating a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you might be better off getting in touch with an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This will provide you with the reassurance that you'll finish up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been accomplished in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. Nevertheless, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security, which might cause problems. The easiest type of installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could always choose to install the cat flap on an exterior wall of your home. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely best left to the pros. You'll find there are a number of choices for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) model. A square hole will have to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. An appropriate cat flap can then be installed on each end of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Clydebank - If your window, wall or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it is not working, or is damaged, it is possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A professional Clydebank cat flap fitter will be happy to take off your old device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, window or door on which it is mounted.
If the new cat flap is going to be installed into a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must double check that the glass has been made, cut and installed correctly. The panel will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
FINDING A CAT FLAP INSTALLER IN CLYDEBANK
Whether you need your cat flap fitted in a window, wall or door, you'll find that there are handymen, professional cat flap installers and even local glazing companies in the Clydebank area who will be able to oblige.
