Cat Flap Fitter Ellon Scotland (AB41): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Ellon property. Cats are similar to humans in a lot of ways, and will frequently start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for significant periods of time. Allowing your cat accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. However, what kind of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat pass through it. Most Ellon cat owners would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property, although this might be okay for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.
This simple design is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your home, however it can be slightly improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your property, thus preventing some undesirable visitors. Again this is a pretty basic type of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar could perchance get into your home. An enhancement to this equipment is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.
The kind of cat flap which is capable of identifying your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in Ellon feline access security. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one pet). The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is close-by, only permitting entry or exit to pets that have a microchip.
Whichever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold currently boast a 4-way locking mechanism. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, enable exit from your property only, enable only admittance into your home, or have 2-way exit and entry functionality. This offers complete control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night time. The ability to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your pet's needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
Installing a cat flap by yourself can be really simple if you have a solid wood door, and decent do-it-yourself abilities. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have the tools and knowledge for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ELLON
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazing window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its strength, insulating properties and security. The truth is, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.
A reputable Ellon cat flap installer will carefully take the measurements of your current unit and order a purpose made one from a local glazing company. This new panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction where your cat flap will be fitted. You might have a one or two week wait for this special 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 do it. When your new glass pane shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to install and set up your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for installing a new cat flap in Ellon, as was mentioned previously, are timber doors. If you are a little dubious about making a sizeable hole in your door, you may be better off getting in touch with an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. An undertaking like this is comparatively inexpensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat has a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which might cause issues. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slatted pane for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could opt to install a cat flap in an external wall of your home in Ellon. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more expertise and equipment to fit, so it is definitely better left to the pros. There are several options for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole made into your selected wall. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to each side of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Ellon - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is quite possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. A specialist Ellon cat flap installer will gladly remove your old entry unit and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any harm to the door, window or wall on which it is secured.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. The glass pane will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems, if it's found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
