Cat Flap Fitter Codsall Staffordshire (WV8): An ideal way to improve your cat's independence and boost it's overally quality of life is to install a cat flap on an external door or wall of your property in Codsall. Cats tend to get crabby and irritated when kept indoors, and not able to roam. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the positive aspects of giving your cat accessibility to outside world by way of . If you opt to go with the cat flap option, your next decision will be what is the best type of cat flap for you.
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is just that. A piece of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. Naturally, this is really basic, and won't be adequate for most cat owners in Codsall, who would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although it could be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This simple design is still far from ideal because it allows other creatures or cats to enter into your home, but it can be improved on a little with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, because any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar can easily access your house. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.
Having a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next level in entry security for felines in Codsall. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is close-by, only allowing access to pets that are microchipped.
Being able to lock it in place is vital no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking mechanism for added flexibility. Which means that it has the capability to be locked fully, allow entry into your house only, enable exit from your premises only, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This gives you choices for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap functions. The facility to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
Installing a cat flap by yourself can be quite straightforward if you have a solid wood door on your Codsall property, and decent do-it-yourself capabilities. But, if you're hoping to fit it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you must ask for outside assistance. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who will be ready to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CODSALL
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Cutting or drilling into any sort of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, as well as its thermal insulation properties. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.
It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Codsall cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing unit and put in an order for the new one. To ensure that the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazing unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or so to produce. Once you've acquired your new panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. The cat flap will then be installed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wood door panels are the simplest alternative with regards to installing a new cat flap on your property in Codsall. It's often best to employ the expert services of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're at all uncomfortable with cutting a big hole in your back or front door. This type of project will not be too costly and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be fitted into uPVC doors. You will need to establish what the internal construction of you door actually is, because for added security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - It is also possible to get a cat flap mounted into an outside wall of your property in Codsall, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. This kind of installation is definitely best left to a professional, since it requires a lot more equipment and skill to accomplish. There are several options for this sort of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) pattern. A neat square hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to enable your cat to exit and enter as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Codsall - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not working correctly, the existing hole in your window, door or wall can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of a similar size. A specialist Codsall cat flap installer will be happy to remove your old unit and replace it with a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it is mounted.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazing pane that's been previously pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed correctly is essential. If it is found this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass pane must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
