Cat Flap Fitter Brixworth Northamptonshire (NN6): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your property in Brixworth, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats are very similar to humans in a lot of ways, and will typically start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for long periods of time without a break. When your cat is allowed easy access to the world outside by means of , there's a better chance of it staying both mentally and physically fit and healthy. If this sounds like a good idea to you, exactly what style of cat flap should you opt for?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is placed over it to give a bit of some protection from the weather. The vast majority of Brixworth cat owners would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although this may be okay for an outhouse or shed door.
This uncomplicated design is still far from perfect since it allows other animals or cats a way to enter your house, however it can be improved on to some degree by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with an IR, RF chip or magnet. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your property, therefore preventing some unwelcome visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the Brixworth area who has a similar model of collar can easily get into your home, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which includes a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.
Picking a cat flap that can identify your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. The microchip number is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). When your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your microchipped pets to exit or enter.
Whichever cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays boast a four way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, enable admission into your premises only, permit only exit from your home, or have 2-way entry and exit functionality. This offers you choices for all times of night and day, to have control over exactly how your cat flap operates. The ability to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
If you've got a wooden door in your house in Brixworth, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. However, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it yourself. Such situations require the skills and expertise of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have all the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BRIXWORTH
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can not be mounted into existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling or cutting into any sort of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, along with its insulating attributes. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Brixworth cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing panel and put in an order for the new one. As part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it may take two weeks or so to manufacture. After construction, the old glass panel can be removed, and the new modified one put in. It's now possible to install your cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for cat flap installations in Brixworth, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are wood door panels.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many cases. It pays to know the internal construction, since some uPVC door panels can have a steel lining for further security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap mounted into an external wall of your house in Brixworth, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons. This sort of installation is definitely best left to the pros, as it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to execute. There are several options for this kind of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square hole neatly made into your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to permit your furry friend to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Brixworth - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a window, wall or door, but it is broken or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a replacement. A trustworthy cat flap fitter in Brixworth will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without harming the door, wall or window.
If the replacement cat flap is to be mounted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make sure that the glass has been made and installed accurately. The glass panel must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
