Free Bacup Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

A cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but let the cat pass through it. The majority of cat owners in Bacup would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although this could be acceptable for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.

Because this solution permits other creatures or cats to enter your home, it's not at all ideal, though it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and access or leave your house, thus avoiding some unwanted visitors. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your home, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier. Providing an additional layer of control and security, this ensures that only your furry friend gets access.

The next level in feline entry security is to fit the kind of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's microchip. The microchip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is close by.

This provides you with a range of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time.

If you are fairly decent at do-it-yourself, fitting your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid timber door on your Bacup home. Under no circumstances should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. These types of fittings call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the insulation properties as well. In actual fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.

An experienced cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazed unit and have a local Bacup glazing company make a new purpose made pane. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. You may have a one or two week wait for this to be manufactured, however if you need a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you've acquired your new panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. Your cat flap can then be fitted.
