Cat Flap Fitter Grangemouth Scotland (FK3): Fitting a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Grangemouth property provides your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment. When constantly kept inside, cats as with people, will get crabby and irritated. Having easy access to outside world via a cat flap will help your cat to keep fit, both mentally and physically. However, what style of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most rudimentry type of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a bendable material is hung over it to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. Of course, this is very basic, and will rarely good enough for most Grangemouth cat owners, who would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their house, although it may be appropriate for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.
Because this option allows other animals or cats to enter your home, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be enhanced to some extent by keeping the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
The next step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. No animal will be able to access or leave your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. Once again this is a relatively simple kind of cat flap, since any other moggy in the area that has a similar model of collar could perchance gain access to your house. An upgrade to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.
The next stage in feline entry security is to use a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's 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 have several cats). When your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to enter/exit.
Regardless which cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking system. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, permit admission into your property only, enable only exit from your home, or have two way exit and entry functionality. This provides you with a variety of options on precisely how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night. Based on your cat's and your requirements, there is even the option to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the higher end devices.
Fitting a cat flap yourself can be pretty easy if you have a solid timber door on your Grangemouth house, and reasonable DIY skills. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This sort of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented carpenters who'll be delighted to accept such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN GRANGEMOUTH
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the security and strength of the panel, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be attempted in any circumstances.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take the measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new glazed unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this special pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you have received your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new unit fitted. Your cat flap will then be put in.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as stated earlier, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Grangemouth. If you are a little unsure about making a hole in your front or back door, you may be happier bringing in a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This sort of task won't be too expensive and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security. The easiest type of installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could opt to install a cat flap into an exterior wall of your house. This sort of installment is certainly best left to an expert, since it calls for considerably more equipment and skill to execute. You'll find there are a couple of choices for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) model. A square hole will be made through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so that your feline friend can get out of and into the house whenever it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Grangemouth - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your door, window or wall, but it is damaged or not working properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. Your cat flap fitter will remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding wall, door or window, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the replacement cat flap is going to be fitted in a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must make certain that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed correctly. The panel must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it's found this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
