Free Barry Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the weather. Even though this might be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel, the majority of Barry cat owners would no doubt favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home.

Because this solution can allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a little by keeping the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

The next step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your property unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. Again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar will be able to get into your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. Providing an additional layer of security and control, this makes certain that only your furry companion gets access.

The kind of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in Barry feline entrance security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one cat it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

When you're buying a cat flap, you should make sure that it's of a type that can be locked. For added security, most cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable admission into your house only, enable exit from your property only, or have 2-way exit and entrance functionality. This gives you solutions for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap functions. Some more expensive devices can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, based on yours and your cat's requirements.

If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your house in Barry. However, if it has to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt it by yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who is sure to have have the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them packing immediately.

As a part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a week or more to produce. Once you've taken possession of your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. Your cat flap can then be installed.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nevertheless, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for extra security, which might cause problems. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap mounted into an external wall of your property in Barry, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. Needing much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is definitely better left to the pros, if it's to be executed correctly. There are a number of choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole made into your wall. A suitable cat flap can then be installed on each end of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Barry - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it is broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement.

Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazing panel which has been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way is essential. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the glass will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Barry

Cat flap weatherproofing is vital for maintaining the comfort and safety of both outdoor and indoor cats. A cat flap that is correctly weatherproofed prevents wind, rain and draughts from seeping into the house, ensuring a warm and dry environment for the feline. A tight barrier against the elements is achieved with cat flaps that have superior quality seals and insulating materials. For shielding the entryway from harsh weather conditions, an additional idea is to install a weatherproof tunnel extension. Regular maintenance, such as checking seals for deterioration, will ensure the cat flap remains effective in providing a comfy and weather-protected space for your furry companion. (42068)
