Cat Flap Fitter Kinross Scotland (KY13): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Kinross home. When kept inside, cats as with people, will get irritated and crabby. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the positive aspects of giving your cat easy access to outside world via a cat flap. If this seems like a good option for you, what style of cat flap should you install?
The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but allow the cat move through. The vast majority of cat owners in Kinross would doubtless favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their home, although this could be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door.
Because this option can allow other cats or creatures to enter your property, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. Subsequently, any animal without one of these special collars cannot leave or access your house. The point that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar model of collar could perchance get into your home, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products because they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
The kind of cat flap that's able to identify your pet's own microchip, is the next stage in feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is in close proximity.
Regardless which cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in position. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking mechanism for added security. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, permit entry into your property only, permit exit only, or have two-way entry and exit functionality. This gives total control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night time. Some more expensive cat flaps can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.
If you're fairly decent at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you have a timber door on your Kinross home. Although, if it needs to be installed in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should not even attempt it yourself. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who'll be happy to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN KINROSS
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit 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 not be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its thermal properties, security and strength. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A dependable Kinross cat flap installer will meticulously measure up your current pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. As a part of its construction this new double glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you've obtained your new glass pane, the old unit can be removed and the new one installed. It's now possible to install the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, wood door panels are the simplest option in relation to cat flap installation on your house in Kinross. It is often wise to employ the expert services of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are nervous about creating a big hole in your front or back door. A project of this kind is comparatively inexpensive and will give you peace of mind that your cat will be using a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nonetheless, some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for added security, which could cause issues. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, subsequently if you've got 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 aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could always decide to install a cat flap on an exterior wall of your home. This sort of installation is undoubtedly better left to the pros, since it requires much more equipment and skill to accomplish. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angled access through a pillar is also a possibility. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole neatly cut out of your specified wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so that your cat can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Kinross - If your window, wall or door already has a cat flap installed, but it's not working, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door, and install a brand new flap for your cat.
Before installing a new flap in a double glazing pane which has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is crucial. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge up, the glass must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
