Cat Flap Fitter Bangor Northern Ireland (BT19): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your house in Bangor, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats are inclined to get grouchy and irritated when continuously kept inside, and not allowed to roam. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your cat accessibility to outside world by means of a cat flap. So, you think it's a good idea, but what is perfect form of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most straightforward type of cat flap, is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to keep the weather out, but allow the cat go through. Even though this might be acceptable in an outhouse or shed door, the majority of Bangor cat owners would prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house.
This simple design is still a long way off being perfect because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to get into your home, nevertheless it can be somewhat improved upon by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. The fact that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar style of collar could perchance access your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap which is able to identify your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is in the vicinity.
The ability to lock it in place is important no matter what cat flap you are buying. The majority of cat flaps sold these days boast a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can enable only exit from your home, allow only access into your premises, be locked fully, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This provides complete control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. A few more advanced models can be programmed to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with your pet's and your requirements.
If you've got a wood door in your property in Bangor, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. Not in any circumstances should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented odd job men who will be happy to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BANGOR
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should not be done in any circumstances.
A professional cat flap fitter will measure your current double glazing pane and have a glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. As an integral part of its construction this new glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it may take a week or two to produce. As soon as your new panel of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installing of the cat flap can then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, timber door panels are the easiest alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your home in Bangor. It is usually advisable to bring in an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are in any way unsure of cutting a hole in your front door. A project like this is fairly inexpensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your kitty will be using an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. You or your installer will have to establish what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for extra security some uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane style.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed on an outside wall. This form of installment is certainly best left to an expert, because it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to accomplish. You will find there are several choices for this installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. Installation involves a neat square hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at either end to permit your cat to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bangor - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, wall or door, but it's broken or not operating properly, the current hole can, with luck, still be used for installing a replacement. An experienced Bangor cat flap installer will be glad to take off your old device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it's attached.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazing pane that's been previously pre-cut, checking that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately is crucial. If it's discovered that the previous installation was bodged, the pane will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
