Cat Flap Fitter Barton-upon-Humber Lincolnshire (DN18): Putting in a cat flap doesn't only save you the effort of opening the door every time your cat decides to stroll out or in, it also gives your cat extra independence and improves it's quality of life. Cats are just like humans in many ways, and will typically start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept indoors for long periods of time. When allowed quick access to the world outside with , your beloved cat has a much better chance of staying healthy and well. But what type of cat flap is better in your case?
The most straightforward form of cat flap, is simply that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. While this may be acceptable in a shed or outhouse door, the majority of cat owners in Barton-upon-Humber would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home.
Since this solution can allow other cats or animals to enter your house, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a little by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or get into your house unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Once again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, as any other moggy in the Barton-upon-Humber area who has a similar collar could possible gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The next step-up in feline entrance security is to consider the type of cat flap which identifies your cat's micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.
Whatever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in place. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps available on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. Which means that it has the capability to be fully locked, permit exit only, permit admission into your house only, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This provides full control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. Some higher end devices can be set to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your requirements.
If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a solid wood door on your Barton-upon-Humber home. But, if you're looking to fit it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you need to seek outside help. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BARTON-UPON-HUMBER
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be mounted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in your double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it compromises the insulating attributes too. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Barton-upon-Humber cat flap fitter will measure your current pane and put in an order for the new one. So that your cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazing panel will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take a couple of weeks to produce. When your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will take out the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap can then be completed.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, solid wood door panels are the easiest alternative when it comes to cat flap installation on your property in Barton-upon-Humber. If you're dubious about cutting a hole in your back or front door, it's a good move to contact an expert to do the work for you. An undertaking like this will not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your pet will be climbing through an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. Nonetheless, some uPVC door panels are steel lined for additional security, which might cause issues. A one piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel type.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could opt to install your cat flap into an exterior wall of your house in Barton-upon-Humber. Needing considerably more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap install is definitely best left to the pros, if it's to be completed successfully. There are a couple of possibilities for this kind of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. A square shaped hole will be made through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your cat can get out of and into your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Barton-upon-Humber - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your wall, door or window, but it is damaged or not operating properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap installer should be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, window or door, and install a new flap for your cat.
When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be necessary to check that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new cat flap. If it becomes obvious that this is not the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
