Cat Flap Fitter Westhill Scotland (AB32): To give your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Westhill house. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when kept inside, and not able to roam. Giving your pet accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. But, what sort of cat flap is best for your circumstances?
A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A sheet of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Although this might be acceptable in a fence panel or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Westhill would no doubt prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home.
This simple design can be improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, however it's still a long way off being perfect as it allows other creatures or cats to get into your property.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to use a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. Subsequently, any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars can't access or leave your property. The point that any other cat in the area who's got a similar model of collar might be able to get into your property, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next step-up in feline entrance security is to install the type of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting exit or entry to animals that have a microchip.
Whatever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in position. These days, almost all cat flaps available on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. Which means it has the capability to enable admittance into your property only, allow exit only, be fully locked, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This gives total control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there's even the option to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with a few of the high end devices.
If you've got a timber door in your house in Westhill, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. Under no circumstances should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. This kind of installation will require the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented handymen who'll be glad to take on such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN WESTHILL
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will take away its thermal insulation attributes, strength and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.
A trustworthy Westhill cat flap installer will carefully take the measurements of your current panel and order a purpose made one from a local glazing supplier. To ensure that the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be made, but if you need a cat flap fitted into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've taken possession of your new glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new unit installed. It will now be possible to fit the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for cat flap installations in Westhill, as was previously mentioned, are solid timber doors. If you're uncomfortable with cutting a hole in your back or front door, it's it may be better to bring in a professional to undertake the project for you. An undertaking like this is relatively inexpensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your cat has a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your installer will need to determine what the interior construction of you door is, because for extra security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be more economical to replace the panel with a single pane style.
Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could decide to install your cat flap in an exterior wall of your house in Westhill. Needing a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly best left to a specialist, if it's to be completed correctly. The majority of wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angle access via a pillar is also an option. This installation entails a square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your furry pal can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Westhill - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating correctly, the current hole in your door, wall or window can be used for a replacement providing that the new flap is of a comparable size. A professional Westhill cat flap fitter will be glad to take out your old unit and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage to the door, window or wall on which it's attached.
If the new cat flap is going to be fitted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must ensure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. If it is found this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the panel will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
