Cat Flap Fitter Bewdley Worcestershire (DY12): To allow your cat the freedom and independence that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Bewdley house. Cats which are kept indoors, as with people, can show signs of frustration. Having access to the world outside with a cat flap will help your pet to keep fit, both mentally and physically. However, what style of cat flap is better in your case?
The most rudimentry style of cat flap is basically that. A sheet of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. Of course, this is really basic, and will rarely good enough for most Bewdley cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although it may be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door.
Since this option can allow other creatures or cats to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, although it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, thus preventing some unwanted visitors. The point that any other moggy in the Bewdley area that's got a similar collar could perhaps gain access to your property, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
Fitting a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's own microchip, is the next level in entrance gadgets for felines. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is close by.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays boast a four way locking mechanism. Which means it's got the capability to allow only exit from your home, enable only entry into your premises, be locked fully, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This offers full control over how your cat flap operates both during the day and throughout the night time. In line with your pet's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with a number of the top-end models.
If you have a wood door on your house in Bewdley, fitting you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. But, if you are hoping to fit it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should ask for outside assistance. Such situations call for the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have all the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BEWDLEY
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can not be fitted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazing will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will detract from its security, strength and insulating properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.
A reliable Bewdley cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your current pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. This new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure where the cat flap can be fitted. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this pane to be made, however if you need a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you've obtained your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. The fitting of the cat flap will then be undertaken.
External Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, solid wooden door panels are the simplest option when it comes to cat flap installation on your house in Bewdley. If you're somewhat dubious about creating a hole in your front or back door, you may be better off hiring an expert carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This kind of project won't be all that expensive and is well worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional provides you with that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the interior construction, because some door panels are steel lined for added security. A one-piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be cheaper to swap the panel for a single panel type.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to get a cat flap installed on an outside wall of your house in Bewdley, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely best left to an expert. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnel style, but right angle access through a pillar is also possible. A neat square shaped hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A suitable cat flap is then fitted to each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Bewdley - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either broken or not functioning properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new flap is of an equivalent size. A decent cat flap installer in Bewdley will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and fit a brand new one in its place without harming the surrounding door, window or wall.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is important to make sure that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new cat flap. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
