Cat Flap Fitter Aberdare Wales (CF44): Installing a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Aberdare property allows your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life. When kept inside, cats much like humans, will get irritated and grouchy. Allowing your pet easy access to world outside via a cat flap can also help keep them mentally and physically fit. So, you think it's a good idea, but what is perfect kind of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The simplest kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a flexible material is hung over it to give a bit of some protection from the weather. Of course, this is very basic, and will not be adequate for most cat owners in Aberdare, who would prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although it might be okay for a fence panel or shed door.
Because this option permits other cats or animals to enter your property, it is not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a little by keeping 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. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Subsequently, any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot get into or leave your property. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar might be able to gain access to your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
The next stage in feline entrance security is to consider a model of cat flap that identifies your cat's own microchip. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got more than one pet it will allow multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is nearby, only allowing exit or entry to pets that have a micro-chip.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure that it's of a type that can be locked. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps have a 4-way locking system these days. Which means it has the capability to enable admittance into your property only, permit exit from your house only, be fully locked, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This provides you with a number of choices on how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night time. The ability to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and based on yours and your pet's needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.
If you are fairly good at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be too difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your Aberdare home. But, if you are planning to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you ought to ask for outside assistance. Such situations call for the expertise and skills of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ABERDARE
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazed window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and give them their marching orders. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Drilling holes in any kind of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, as well as its insulating properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be done in any circumstances whatsoever.
A specialist cat flap installer will measure up the existing double glazing unit and have a local glazing company knock up a new pane. As a part of its construction this new double glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed snugly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take two weeks or so to produce. Once you've received your new pane of glass, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. It's now possible to fit the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as I already mentioned, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Aberdare. If you are unsure about cutting a hole in your front or back door, it's it may be better to call an expert to do the job for you. This sort of task won't be all that expensive and is worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional provides you with that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the internal construction, because some door panels are steel lined for further security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it may be easier to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could elect to install the cat flap on an outside wall of your house. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more equipment and skill to fit, therefore it is certainly better left to a specialist. Nearly all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angular access through a pillar is also possible. Installation calls for a square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap is then mounted on each side of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Aberdare - If your wall, window or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working, or is damaged, it's possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. An expert Aberdare cat flap fitter will be glad to remove your old unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, window or door on which it's secured.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to make sure that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new cat flap. The glass panel will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
