Cat Flap Fitter Dunblane Scotland (FK15): Installing a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Dunblane house helps to give your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats that are kept indoors, much like people, can show signs of irritation. Having easy access to outside world by way of a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both mentally and physically. So, you think it's a good idea, but which is best form of cat flap for your beloved pet?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a bendable material is fixed over the gap to give protection from the weather. The majority of cat owners in Dunblane would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although this may be suitable for a shed or outhouse door.
Since this solution permits other cats or creatures to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in place with the addition of a magnetic strip.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to open the flap and leave or access your home, hence avoiding some unwelcome visitors. Once again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, since any other cat in the Dunblane area that's got a similar collar can access your home. An enhancement to this product is an RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.
Choosing a cat flap which can identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in access devices for felines in Dunblane. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.
Being able to lock it in place is vital no matter which cat flap you are buying. The majority of cat flaps sold currently feature a 4-way locking mechanism. This means that it has the capability to enable only exit from your home, allow entrance into your property only, be fully locked, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This provides complete control over how your cat flap operates both during the day and throughout the night time. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there's even the option to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with some of the higher end devices.
If you've got a wood door in your property in Dunblane, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Although, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it on your own. This sort of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who are glad to take on such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN DUNBLANE
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling or cutting into it, and will detract from its security, insulating attributes and strength. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.
A professional cat flap installer will measure up your current double glazing unit and have a local Dunblane glazing firm knock up a new one. This new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap can be installed. You might have a one or two week wait for this pane to be produced, but if you want a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. Once you have acquired your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new pane installed. It will now be possible to fit the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wooden door panels are the simplest alternative in relation to installing a new cat flap on your property in Dunblane. If you are somewhat unsure about cutting a sizeable hole in your door, you might be better off getting in touch with a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should provide you with the reassurance that you are going to end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the job has been done correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. You or your installer will need to ascertain what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for added security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The models of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it may be better to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could choose to install the cat flap into an external wall of your property in Dunblane. Calling for a lot more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly better left to a professional, if it's to be executed correctly. There are several possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angular (through pillar) configuration. This installation involves a neat square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your furry pal can enter and exit your home whenever it desires.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Dunblane - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not operating correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new flap is of a similar size. A good cat flap installer in Dunblane will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the surrounding door, window or wall.
Before installing the new cat flap in double glazing which has been previously pre-cut, making certain that the existing glass has been cut and installed correctly is essential. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
