Free Bolsover Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but allow the cat go through. Most cat owners in Bolsover would doubtless favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property, although this could be okay for an outhouse or shed door.

Since this solution permits other cats or creatures to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, although it can be improved on to some degree by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The reality that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar can get into your home, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier. This ensures that only your furry friend gains access, providing an extra layer of security and control.

The next stage in feline entrance security is to consider the kind of cat flap that recognises your cat's own micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Entry and exit are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is in close proximity.

No matter which cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. For extra flexibility, most cat flaps boast a four way locking system nowadays. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, enable only access into your home, enable exit from your premises only, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This provides full control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. Some of the top-end cat flaps can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, based on yours and your pet's requirements.

If you've got a wooden door in your property in Bolsover, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. But, if you're looking to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you ought to seek outside help. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them the boot. A new cat flap can't be installed into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its strength, insulating properties and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should not be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

A reliable Bolsover cat flap installer will diligently take the measurements of your current panel and order a purpose made one from a local glazing company. This new panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction where the cat flap can be installed. This is the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take a week or more to manufacture. When your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap can then be put in.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as already stated, the easiest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Bolsover. If you are uncertain about creating a hole in your front door, it's it may be better to bring in a professional to do the work for you. This type of task will not be all that expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that additional reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. However, some uPVC doors are steel lined for additional security, which can cause some problems. The models of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it might be easier to replace this with a single panel.

Wall Installation - It is also possible to get a cat flap fitted on an outside wall of your home in Bolsover, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for considerably more equipment and expertise to install, therefore it's certainly better left to an expert. Almost 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 hole will be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so your cat can get out of and into your home whenever it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Bolsover - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a wall, door or window, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap installer will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the surrounding wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

If the replacement cat flap is being installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make certain that the glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If it is found this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.

Cat flaps yield an array of advantages for both the cats and the people who own them:

  1. Enhanced Security: Equipped with locking mechanisms, many cat flaps can be adjusted to permit only particular cats entry, while keeping out undesired visitors. This functionality boosts home security by obstructing the ingress of strays and potential threats.
  2. Better Control: Programmable advanced cat flaps, which can be aligned with your cat's microchip or a distinct collar tag, guarantee that only your cat utilises the flap, giving you total command over their entrances and exits.
  3. Convenience for Owners: Owners are relieved of the need to halt their daily activities to manage their cats' outdoor or indoor access. This convenience holds significant value for those with demanding lifestyles or unsystematic schedules.
  4. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps obviate the need for you to continuously watch over and open the door for your cat, reducing both your and your pet's stress levels, and allowing them independent exit and entry.
  5. Reduced Litter Box Odours: With a cat flap, your furry friend may use the litter box less often, potentially reducing the need for frequent cleanings and lingering smells in your home.
  6. Independence for Cats: By allowing access to the outdoors, exercise, and a means to satisfy their innate curiosity, cat flaps cater to the independent nature of cats, boosting their happiness and improving their health.
  7. Reduced Door Scratching: Tired of shredded door frames? The frustration of waiting to be let out and in can prompt destructive scratching near doors. Cat flaps offer an alternative access point, potentially curbing this undesirable behaviour.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Bolsover

Essential for the safety and comfort of indoor and outdoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing must not be overlooked. A correctly weatherproofed cat flap prevents rain, draughts and wind from seeping into the house, ensuring a dry and warm environment for the feline. To create a tight barrier against the elements, search for cat flaps designed with high-quality seals and insulating materials. In addition, consider installing a weatherproof tunnel extension to shield the entrance from harsh climatic conditions. To maintain the cat flap's effectiveness in providing a weather-protected and comfortable space for the cat, routine maintenance is essential, including checking seals for damage.
