Cat Flap Fitter Coatbridge Scotland (ML5): To provide your cat with the independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Coatbridge property. Cats tend to get grumpy and irritated when continuously kept indoors, and not able to roam free. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main benefits of allowing your cat access to the outside world by way of a cat flap. So, you think it's a good idea, but what is best kind of cat flap for your precious pet?
The simplest sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a bendable material is fixed over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. The vast majority of cat owners in Coatbridge would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although this could be okay for a fence panel or outhouse door.
This basic design is still a long way off being perfect since it allows other animals or cats to enter into your house, nevertheless it can be improved on slightly by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The drawback is that any other cat in the Coatbridge area who's got a similar model of collar can still access your home when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier.
The next level in feline access security is to use a cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own 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've got more than one pet). The flap is unlocked when your cat is close-by, only permitting entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.
Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold currently feature a 4-way locking mechanism. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, permit only admittance into your premises, permit exit from your house only, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This gives total control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. In keeping with yours and your cat's requirements, there's even the option to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the high end models.
If you've got a wood door on your house in Coatbridge, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. However, if it needs to be installed in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation from a trustworthy cat flap fitter or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN COATBRIDGE
Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps can't be installed into existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation properties too. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.
A reliable Coatbridge cat flap installer will carefully measure up your current unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. As part of its construction this new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed nicely into. You may have a one or two week wait for this pane to be produced, but if you need a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. As soon as your new glass pane is delivered, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to install your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as stated previously, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Coatbridge. It is often safer to get in touch with a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all unsure of making a hole in your front door. This will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you will finish up with a professionally fitted cat friendly flap, and that the job has been undertaken properly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many cases. You or your fitter will need to determine what the internal structure of you door is, because for additional security some uPVC door panels are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could always elect to install a cat flap in an outside wall of your house. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a bit more equipment and skill to install, so it's certainly best left to the pros. Almost all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, however right angular access via a pillar can also be achieved. Installation involves a neat square hole being cut through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to permit your feline friend to come and go as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Coatbridge - If you already have a cat flap installed on your door, window or wall, but it's damaged or not working properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. An expert Coatbridge cat flap fitter will gladly remove your old entry unit and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage to the door, window or wall on which it is secured.
If the new cat flap is to be installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must double check that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. If it is found that this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
