Free Leven Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A bit of flexible material hung over a hole in a door to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. The vast majority of cat owners in Leven would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home, although this could be acceptable for an outhouse door or fence panel.

This uncomplicated design can be somewhat improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your home.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased in it. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars can't access or leave your property. Again this is a fairly basic type of cat flap, because any other cat in the Leven area who's got a similar model of collar can easily access your house. An enhancement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.

The kind of cat flap that is can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline access security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and permit only your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.

No matter which cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. Currently, almost all cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit admission into your home only, enable exit only, be fully locked, or have 2-way entry and exit functionality. This offers you alternatives for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap works. A few of the more advanced models can be set to perform different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your needs.

If you're pretty decent at DIY, putting in your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your house in Leven. On no account should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These types of fittings require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazed door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and show them the gate. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling or cutting into any kind of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, as well as its insulating attributes. Actually, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.

An experienced cat flap installer will take measurements of the existing double glazing pane and have a local glazing firm make a new one. So that your cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be made, but if you need a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to fit the cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many cases. However, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for extra security, which might cause problems. The easiest type of installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't want to have a hole cut in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed within an exterior wall. This sort of installment is undoubtedly best left to an expert, as it requires much more equipment and skill to accomplish.

A suitable cat flap is then mounted on both ends of the hole.

You local cat flap fitter will remove the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the wall, door or window, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it will be necessary to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new flap. If you discover that this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the pane must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
