Cat Flap Fitter Cupar Scotland (KY14): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your property in Cupar, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam free. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of giving your cat access to the world outside by means of a cat flap. If this seems like a great idea to you, exactly what sort of cat flap should you fit?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but let the cat climb through. The vast majority of cat owners in Cupar would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although this might be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.
Since this solution will allow other cats or animals to enter your house, it's not at all ideal, although it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your house. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can still access your house when using this sort of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.
The next step-up in feline access security is to install a model of cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's micro-chip. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will accept multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
Being able to lock it in place is important regardless of what cat flap you are buying. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism these days. Which means that the cat flap can allow exit from your premises only, be locked fully, allow only entrance into your property, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This gives you a variety of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. Some of the more expensive devices can be set to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with your cat's and your needs.
If you have a wooden door on your house in Cupar, fitting you own cat flap should not be too difficult. However, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt it on your own. This kind of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented handymen who'll be delighted to take on such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN CUPAR
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazing window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them their marching orders. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the thermal insulation properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.
A dependable Cupar cat flap fitter will meticulously take the precise measurements of your current pane and order a custom-made one from a local glazing supplier. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazed panel will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. This can take a week or two to manufacture, but it is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have taken possession of your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new unit installed. It's now possible to install your cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The least complicated alternative for installing a new cat flap in Cupar, as was stated earlier, are solid wooden doors. If you are a bit hesitant about cutting a sizeable hole in your front or back door, you may be happier contacting an expert cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you will end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most instances. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC doors incorporate a steel lining for extra security. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be advisable to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you don't really want to cut a hole in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for considerably more equipment and skill to install, therefore it's certainly best left to the pros. Nearly all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, however right angled access through a pillar is also a possibility. A square shaped hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap is then mounted on each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Cupar - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a wall, window or door, but it is broken or not functioning properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. A reputable cat flap installer in Cupar will efficiently remove the old cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door.
When the cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it is necessary to confirm that this was previously done correctly, before fitting the new cat flap. The glass will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
