Because this option can allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, although it can be improved on somewhat by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or get into your property unless it is equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a relatively basic type of cat flap, as any other cat in the area who has a similar style of collar could perhaps gain access to your home.

If you have a timber door in your home in Newton Mearns, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard.

This sort of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who will be happy to undertake such a task.

INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN NEWTON MEARNS

Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and show them the gate. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it compromises the insulation properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Newton Mearns cat flap fitter will measure your existing pane and put in an order for a brand new one. This new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap will be installed. This could take a week or two to produce, but it's the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, your old glass pane will be taken out, and the brand new one put in. It will now be possible to install the cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for installing a new cat flap in Newton Mearns, as was mentioned previously, are solid wooden door panels. If you are nervous about making a hole in your back or front door, it's wise to contact an expert to do the job for you. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to end up with a professionally fitted cat friendly flap, and that the project has been accomplished correctly.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some door panels are lined with steel for further security. The simplest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted panel with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut into your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could have a cat flap installed on an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a little more skill and equipment to fit, so it is certainly better left to a specialist. There are a couple of possibilities for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. Installation entails a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A suitable cat flap is then mounted on each side of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Newton Mearns - If your door, wall or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is quite possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. An expert Newton Mearns cat flap fitter will be happy to take out your old entry device and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage to the door, wall or window on which it is secured.

Before installing a new flap in a double glazed pane that has been pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been cut and installed correctly is crucial. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel must be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
