Hawick Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Hawick Scotland (TD9): To allow your cat the independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Hawick home.

If this seems like a good option for you, what form of cat flap should you opt for?

Free Hawick Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole is cut into an external door and a bendable material is placed over the gap to give a bit of some protection from the elements. Although this could be suitable for an outhouse or shed door, most Hawick cat owners would favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.

This simple design is still far from perfect because it allows other cats or creatures to enter into your home, but it can be slightly improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, IR or RF chip. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your home, hence avoiding some undesirable visitors. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the Hawick area who's got a similar collar might be able to access your house when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier.

The type of cat flap that is able to identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in feline access security. You need 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 more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.

Whenever you're buying a cat flap, you must make sure that it's of a design that can be locked. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps on the market have a four way locking mechanism for added flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit exit from your house only, be locked fully, enable admittance into your property only, or have two-way exit and entrance functionality. This provides you with a variety of solutions on how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. Some more expensive models can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your needs.

If you are pretty good at DIY, putting in your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, as long as you've got a solid wood door on your Hawick home. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. This sort of installation will require the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented handymen who will be happy to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be mounted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the insulation attributes as well. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.

A specialist cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local Hawick glazing firm make a new purpose made one. So your cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this special pane to be made, 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. Once you have acquired your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane fitted. The cat flap will then be mounted.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. Nevertheless, some uPVC door panels are steel lined for extra security, which might cause issues. The easiest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always opt to install a cat flap in an exterior wall of your house. Needing considerably more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly better left to a professional, if it's to be executed successfully. There are several possibilities for this installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. A square shaped hole will be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to permit your furry pal to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Hawick - If your window, door or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A specialist Hawick cat flap fitter will be glad to take out your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, door or window on which it is secured.

When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it will be necessary to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new cat flap. If you discover this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
