Cat Flap Fitter Methil Scotland (KY8): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Methil property. Cats kept indoors, as with humans, will show signs of frustration. Allowing your pet easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. So, you think it's a great idea, but what is best sort of cat flap for your precious pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material hung over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat climb through. Naturally, this is very basic, and will not be sufficient for most Methil cat owners, who would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it could be appropriate for a shed door or fence panel.
Since this solution will allow other cats or animals to enter your home, it's not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal will be able to leave or access your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. The drawback is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar can easily gain access to your home with this sort of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
The next stage in feline entry security is to consider a cat flap which identifies your cat's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is close-by, only allowing access to animals that have a microchip.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure that it's of a design that can be locked. For added security, almost all cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit exit from your home only, permit access into your home only, be locked fully, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This provides total control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. Some higher end models can be set to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your cat's and your needs.
If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you have a timber door on your home in Methil. However, if it needs to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you shouldn't even attempt it on your own. This kind of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled handymen who'll be glad to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN METHIL
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. It is simply not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazing will be damaged by drilling or cutting into it, and will damage its insulating properties, strength and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.
A reliable Methil cat flap installer will diligently measure up your existing pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. To ensure that the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazing panel will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. You may have to wait a week or two for this special pane to be made, however if you need a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. When your new glass pane shows up, the fitter will remove the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It's now possible to install and set up the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, solid timber doors are the least complicated option with regards to cat flap installation on your property in Methil. If you're hesitant about creating a hole in your back or front door, it's wise to call on an expert to do the job for you. An undertaking like this will not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty has an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. You'll have to ascertain what the internal construction of you door actually is, because for extra security certain uPVC door panels are made with a galvanised steel lining. A one-piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be more economical to exchange this panel for a single panel style.
Wall Installation - If you don't really want to have a hole cut in your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an outside wall. Needing a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely best left to a specialist, if it is to be executed successfully. There are several options for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) pattern. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole cut out of your specified wall. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at both ends to enable your furry friend to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Methil - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a door, window or wall, but it is broken or not functioning properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. An expert Methil cat flap installer will be glad to remove your old device and swap it for a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, door or wall on which it is secured.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is essential to check that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new cat flap. If the previous installation was bodged, the pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
