Cat Flap Fitter Linwood Scotland (PA3): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Linwood, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. Cats are inclined to get irritated and grumpy when kept indoors, and not able to roam. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the positive aspects of giving your furry friend access to the world outside by way of a cat flap. However, what kind of cat flap is better for your situation?
The most basic style of cat flap, is just that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. The majority of cat owners in Linwood would doubtless favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although this could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.
As this solution permits other animals or cats to enter your home, it is not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced to some extent by holding the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
A step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your house unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, since any other cat in the Linwood area who's got a similar collar can easily access your house. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.
Installing a cat flap which can identify your cat's microchip, is the next level in entry security for felines. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one cat). The flap will be unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only permitting access to animals that have a micro-chip.
Being able to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. For extra security, most cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism these days. This means that the cat flap can allow only entrance into your property, be fully locked, permit exit from your house only, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This will give you a number of options on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night time. Some high end cat flaps can be programmed to perform different functions according to the time of day, in line with your cat's and your needs.
If you have a wood door on your property in Linwood, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. However, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it by yourself. These types of fittings require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN LINWOOD
Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling holes in any sort of double glazing will damage its security and strength, along with its insulation properties. Actually, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.
A dependable Linwood cat flap installer will diligently get the dimensions of your existing unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. So that your cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new glazed unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take two weeks or so to produce. After construction, the old glass pane can be taken out, and the brand new one put in. It will now be possible to install the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, wood doors are the easiest option in relation to cat flap installation on your home in Linwood. It is often safer to contact a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are in any way nervous about making a hole in your door. A project like this should not be expensive and will give you peace of mind that your cat will be using an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most instances. It pays to know the internal construction, as some uPVC doors can have a steel lining for further security. A one-piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could choose to install your cat flap into an external wall of your home in Linwood. Requiring a lot more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is certainly better left to the pros, if it is to be accomplished correctly. The majority of cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, but right angled access through a pillar is also a possibility. Installation calls for 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. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with a cat flap so that your feline friend can get in and out of the house whenever it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Linwood - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is quite possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. An experienced Linwood cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the door, wall or window on which it is mounted.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed pane that's been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way is vital. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will need to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
