Cat Flap Fitter Baildon West Yorkshire (BD17): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Baildon home. Cats tend to get irritated and crabby when kept indoors, and not allowed to roam. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main benefits of allowing your pet accessibility to outside world by way of a cat flap. If this seems like a good idea to you, precisely what type of cat flap should you install?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a flexible material is fixed over it to offer protection from the elements. Most Baildon cat owners would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although this could be suitable for a shed or outhouse door.
This simple model is still a long way off being perfect since it allows other animals or cats a way to enter into your house, nevertheless it can be improved on with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, IR or RF chip. Therefore any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot access or leave your property. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar can easily access your property, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.
Picking a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry security for felines. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows just your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.
When you are buying a cat flap, you should make certain that it's of a design that can be locked into position. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps feature a four way locking system these days. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable exit from your home only, enable only admittance into your premises, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This provides complete control over how your cat flap operates both throughout the day and during the night. The facility to perform specific functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
Installing a cat flap on your own can be really straightforward if you've got a solid wood door on your Baildon property, and reasonable DIY skills. But, if you are intending to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you ought to seek outside assistance. Such situations require the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or odd job man, who will have the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BAILDON
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can not be mounted into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making holes in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the thermal insulation attributes as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
A professional cat flap fitter will measure up your current double glazed unit and have a glazing company make a new purpose made pane. So that your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazed pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. You might have to wait a week or more for this special pane to be produced, but if you want a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. After construction, your old glass can be taken out, and the brand new one put in. The installation of the cat flap will then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, solid wooden door panels are the easiest alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your property in Baildon. If you are unsure of creating a hole in your front or back door, it's wise to call a specialist to do the job for you. This type of undertaking won't be too costly and is well worth doing properly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be installed into uPVC doors. You or your fitter will have to verify what the interior construction of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC door panels are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single panel style.
Wall Installation - It is also feasible to have a cat flap installed on an outside wall of your house in Baildon, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons. This kind of installation is undoubtedly best left to the pros, as it requires far more skill and equipment to accomplish. There are several choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angled (through pillar) pattern. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole neatly made into your wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at both ends to enable your feline friend to come and go as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Baildon - If your window, door or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's quite possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. An experienced Baildon cat flap installer will be glad to take out your old device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the door, wall or window on which it is mounted.
If the new cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must make certain that the existing glass has been made and installed in the right way. The pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues, if it's found this isn't the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.
