Cat Flap Fitter Lenzie Scotland (G66): Putting in a cat flap doesn't only save you the inconvenience of opening the door every time the cat wants to go in or out, it also affords your cat more independence and enhances it's quality of life. When constantly kept inside, cats just like people, will get crabby and irritated. Allowing your furry friend access to the outside world by means of a cat flap can also help to keep them physically and mentally fit. If this sounds like a good idea to you, what sort of cat flap should you put in?
A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible bit of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but allow the cat move through. Of course, this is really basic, and won't be sufficient for most Lenzie cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although it could be okay for a shed or outhouse door.
This standard model can be to some degree improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it's still a long way from being ideal as it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter your home.
The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, therefore keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The next level in feline entrance security is to choose a model of cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits solely your micro-chipped pets to enter/exit.
No matter which cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. Currently, nearly all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for extra security. This means that the cat flap can permit admittance into your premises only, allow only exit from your home, be locked fully, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This gives complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there's even the option to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with a number of the higher end models.
If you've got a timber door on your home in Lenzie, fitting you own cat flap should not be too difficult. But, if you are intending to install it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you should seek outside assistance. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or odd job man, who'll have the knowledge and tools for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN LENZIE
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them the boot. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its strength, security and thermal insulation attributes. In reality, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.
A professional cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new pane. This new panel will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure where your cat flap will be fitted. You may have to wait a week or so for this to be produced, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once you've received your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new unit installed. It's now possible to install your new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as I stated previously, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Lenzie. It is normally wise to employ the expert services of a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're in any way hesitant about creating a hole in your front or back door. A project of this kind will not be expensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your pet will be using a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You'll have to determine what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for added security certain uPVC door panels are made with a galvanised steel lining. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it might be advisable to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap fitted on an outside wall of your property in Lenzie, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons. Calling for much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly best left to the pros, if it's to be executed successfully. You can go with a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angled model that allows entry via a pillar. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole neatly cut out of your selected wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so your feline friend can get out of and into your house whenever it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Lenzie - If you already have a cat flap installed on a door, window or wall, but it is broken or not functioning properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a new one. An expert Lenzie cat flap installer will gladly remove your old device and replace it with a new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it is mounted.
If the replacement cat flap is going to be installed in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make sure that the glass has been fabricated, cut and installed correctly. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the panel will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
FINDING A CAT FLAP INSTALLER IN LENZIE
There are many different specialist cat flap installers, handymen and even local glazing merchants in the Lenzie area, that provide cat flap fitting through whatever door or fabrication you need. There are several ways of locating a trustworthy cat flap installer, and few are more reliable than asking family and friends. If they have had similar work done by a local Lenzie tradesman themselves, and been very satisfied with the outcome, you can reasonably expect that they will do a good job for you too.
Where a personal recommendation isn't possible, get at least three price quotes from local Lenzie cat flap installers or handymen. Study these quotes carefully and never automatically opt for the cheapest option, since this will not necessarily be the best of the bunch.
