Codsall Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Codsall Staffordshire (WV8): A great way to enhance your cat's independence and improve it's quality of life is to fit a cat flap on an external door or wall of your home in Codsall. Cats are like people in a lot of ways, and will frequently show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for significant periods of time without a break. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your cat accessibility to outside world by means of a cat flap. If this seems like a good option for you, exactly what kind of cat flap should you fit?

The most fundamental style of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut in an external door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to give a bit of some protection from the weather. Even though this may be appropriate in a fence panel or shed door, the vast majority of cat owners in Codsall would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property.

This uncomplicated model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it's still far from perfect as it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter into your property.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. No animal will be able to leave or get into your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. The reality that any other moggy in the Codsall area that has a similar model of collar could perhaps access your house, is the drawback with this type of cat flap. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.

The next level in feline access security is to install the type of cat flap which identifies your pet's own micro-chip. You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked whenever your cat is in close proximity, only allowing exit or entry to pets that have a micro-chip.

No matter which cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. For added security, most cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to enable exit from your home only, be fully locked, enable admittance into your house only, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This gives total control over how your cat flap operates both during the day and throughout the night time. In line with your cat's and your needs, there's even the option to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the more advanced models.

If you have a wooden door on your property in Codsall, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. However, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This kind of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who'll be happy to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling or cutting into any sort of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, as well as its thermal properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsound.

A trustworthy Codsall cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your current unit and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. As a part of its structure this new double glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed snugly into. You may have to wait two weeks or so for this special pane to be manufactured, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. When your new glass pane arrives, the installer will take out the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The installation of the cat flap can then be carried out.

External Wooden Doors - Solid timber door panels are, as I mentioned previously, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Codsall. It's normally wise to call on an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're uncertain about making a hole in your front or back door. This should provide you with the peace of mind that you are going to finish up with an expertly fitted cat friendly flap, and that the project has been accomplished properly.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some door panels are lined with steel for added security. A one-piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into a door, you could opt to install your cat flap in an external wall of your house. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a little more skill and equipment to fit, so it is definitely best left to an expert. You can decide on a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angled version which permits entry via a pillar. This installation involves a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to enable your feline friend to come and go as it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Codsall - If you already have a cat flap installed on a wall, window or door, but it's broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap installer should be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

If the substitute cat flap is being fitted into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately. If it becomes obvious this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the panel will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
