Stepps Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Stepps Scotland (G33): To give your cat the independence it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Stepps house.

But, what kind of cat flap is better in your case?

Free Stepps Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A piece of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to permit a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. Most cat owners in Stepps would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although this might be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.

This standard model can be improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it's still a long way from being ideal as it enables other animals or cats to enter your home.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring an RF chip, IR or magnet. Therefore any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or get into your home. Again this is a fairly simple kind of cat flap, because any other cat in the area who has a similar collar might be able to gain access to your home. An enhancement to this equipment is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.

The next stage in feline entrance security is to choose a cat flap that identifies your pet's micro-chip. The microchip number is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one pet). The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting access to animals that are microchipped.

Whichever cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in position. Currently, the majority of cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for extra security. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, permit admission into your house only, enable exit only, or have 2-way exit and entry capability. This gives you solutions for all times of day and night, to control precisely how your cat flap functions. A few more advanced models can be set to perform different functions according to the time of day, based on yours and your cat's requirements.

If you have a wood door on your home in Stepps, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. Not in any circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation from a trustworthy cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. In reality, it makes your glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

An experienced cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current double glazing unit and have a local glazing firm knock up a new one. So the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction. This is the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take a week or two to manufacture. Once your new glass panel is delivered, the installer will take out 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.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many cases. Having said that, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for extra security, which may cause some problems. A one piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be less expensive to swap the panel for a single panel model.

Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could always choose to install your cat flap on an outside wall of your property in Stepps. Calling for considerably more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly best left to the pros, if it's to be executed correctly. You can go with a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angled model that enables entry via a pillar. This installation calls for a square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your cat can get in and out of the house whenever it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Stepps - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working correctly, the current hole in your wall, door or window can still be used so long as the new flap is of an equivalent size. An experienced Stepps cat flap installer will gladly take off your old entry device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, door or wall on which it's mounted.

If the replacement cat flap is to be installed into a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make certain that the existing glass has been made and installed accurately. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel must be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
