Cat Flap Fitter Ashby-de-La-Zouch Leicestershire (LE65): Putting in a cat flap doesn't only save you the effort of opening the door every time the cat needs to stroll in or out, it also affords your cat more independence and enhances it's overall quality of life. Cats are similar to humans in many ways, and will frequently show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept indoors for significant periods of time without a break. Allowing your furry friend access to the world outside with a cat flap can also help keep them mentally and physically fit. So, you think it's a great idea, but which is perfect sort of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but permit the cat move through. Obviously, this is very basic, and won't be good enough for most cat owners in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, who would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house, although it may be okay for an outhouse or shed door.
This standard model can be to some degree improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it's still a long way from being ideal as it allows other animals or cats to enter into your home.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip variation. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Subsequently, any animal that does not have a special collar can't leave or get into your house. Once again this is a pretty simple kind of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar could perhaps gain access to your home. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.
Picking a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance security for felines. You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will allow multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.
The ability to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a four way locking mechanism. Which means that it has the capability to be fully locked, allow only admittance into your premises, enable only exit from your home, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This offers you a variety of choices on how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. The wherewithal to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your requirements is also an option with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
If you've got a wooden door on your property in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it needs to be fitted in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you should not even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled handymen who are delighted to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN ASHBY-DE-LA-ZOUCH
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can't be installed into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not just the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the insulating properties too. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.
A specialist cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazing unit and have a local Ashby-de-La-Zouch glazing firm make a new purpose made one. So that your cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new glazed unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This may take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. As soon as your new pane of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to install and set up your new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The easiest option for installing a new cat flap in Ashby-de-La-Zouch, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are solid wood door panels. If you're a little nervous about cutting a sizeable hole in your front or back door, you may be better off contacting a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you'll end up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been done properly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be installed into uPVC doors. You or your fitter will have to ascertain what the interior construction of you door is, because for extra security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. A one-piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - If you don't really want to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an external wall. This kind of installment is certainly best left to the pros, as it calls for much more skill and equipment to execute. You could decide on a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angled model that allows access through a pillar. Installation calls for a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so that your cat can exit and enter your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Ashby-de-La-Zouch - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning correctly, the current hole in your door, window or wall can still be used providing the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. An expert Ashby-de-La-Zouch cat flap fitter will gladly take off your old entry unit and replace it with a new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it is mounted.
Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazed panel that's been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been made and installed accurately is essential. If the previous installation was a bodge up, the panel will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
