Cat Flap Fitter Inverurie Scotland (AB51): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Inverurie house. Cats are inclined to get grumpy and irritated when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the positive aspects of allowing your furry friend access to the outside world by way of a cat flap. However, what type of cat flap is best for your circumstances?
The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A piece of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through, but keep the elements out. Of course, this is extremely basic, and won't be adequate for most cat owners in Inverurie, who would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although it could be acceptable for a fence panel or outhouse door.
As this solution allows other cats or animals to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, although it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in place with the addition of a magnetic strip.
The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. This means that any animal without a special collar cannot leave or get into your house. The reality that any other moggy in the Inverurie area that has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
Picking a cat flap that can identify your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in entrance security for felines. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows just your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure that it's of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold currently boast a 4-way locking system. This allows your cat flap to permit entrance into your home only, enable exit from your home only, be locked fully, or have two-way entry and exit functionality. This provides you with choices for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap functions. The facility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
Fitting a cat flap on your own can be really straightforward if you have a solid timber door on your Inverurie house, and decent DIY capabilities. But, if you are planning to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you need to ask for outside help. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN INVERURIE
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap has to be installed in a double glazing panel, and your chosen "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them the boot. New cat flaps cannot be installed into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its thermal properties. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be done under any circumstances.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Inverurie cat flap fitter will measure your existing pane and order the new one. As a part of its structure this new glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This could take a couple of weeks to manufacture, however it's really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you've received your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel fitted. The installation of your cat flap can then be undertaken.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wooden door panels are, as we mentioned above, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Inverurie. If you are somewhat uncomfortable with creating a hole in your door, you might be better off contacting a professional cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This kind of project won't be all that expensive and is worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many cases. You or your installer will have to verify what the internal structure of you door is, since for additional security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. The easiest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into your door, you could opt to install the cat flap into an outside wall of your home. Calling for considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is certainly better left to the pros, if it is to be accomplished successfully. You will find there are a number of choices for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) pattern. This installation entails a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap is then attached to both sides of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Inverurie - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not functioning properly, the existing hole in your window, wall or door can be fitted with a replacement as long as the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. You local cat flap fitter will be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the door, wall or window, and install a brand new flap for your cat.
When your cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it is important to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. If you discover that this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass unit must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
