Cat Flap Fitter Cleethorpes Lincolnshire (DN35): Fitting a cat flap to an external wall or door in your home in Cleethorpes, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence. When kept indoors, cats much like humans, will get grouchy and irritated. Having access to the outside world by means of a cat flap will help your furry friend to remain fit, both physically and mentally. So, you're sold on the idea, but exactly what is best sort of cat flap for your pet?
The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is hung over it to give protection from the weather. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be good enough for most cat owners in Cleethorpes, who would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it could be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door.
This uncomplicated design can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still far from ideal because it allows other cats or animals a way to enter into your home.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to use a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars cannot leave or get into your house. The drawback here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar could perchance get into your home with this kind of cat flap fitted. An upgrade to this product is an RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.
The next level in feline entrance security is to use a cat flap which identifies your pet's own micro-chip. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in the vicinity.
The ability to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you're buying. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays feature a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can allow exit only, be fully locked, allow only entrance into your home, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This offers you a range of choices on exactly how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. A few high end devices can be set to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, in keeping with yours and your pet's needs.
If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your house in Cleethorpes. Not in any circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This kind of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who will be happy to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CLEETHORPES
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not merely the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the insulation properties as well. In fact, it makes the glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.
A specialist cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a glazing company make a new purpose made pane. This new glazed pane will arrive with a hole cut out as a part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it can take a week or two to manufacture. After construction, the old glass pane can be removed, and the new adapted one put in its place. The installation of your cat flap can then be completed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as we already stated, the simplest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Cleethorpes. If you are a little hesitant about cutting an opening in your door, you may be happier bringing in an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to end up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been done correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. Nonetheless, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for additional security, which can cause some problems. The simplest kind of installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or security reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it is certainly best left to a specialist. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angle access through a pillar is also a possibility. This installation calls for a neat square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to allow your cat to exit and enter as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Cleethorpes - If your wall, window or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. A professional Cleethorpes cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old entry unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the door, wall or window on which it is mounted.
When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is important to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new flap. If it becomes obvious that this is not the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass pane will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
