Cat Flap Fitter Dewsbury West Yorkshire (WF12): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Dewsbury, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. When constantly kept indoors, cats much like people, will get irritated and crabby. Having accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap will help your pet to stay fit, both physically and mentally. If this sounds like a good option for you, what type of cat flap should you fit?
A cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A sheet of bendable material placed over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. The vast majority of Dewsbury cat owners would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home, although this might be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.
This simple model can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it's still a long way off being ideal because it enables other cats or animals a way to enter your home.
The next step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires your cat to wear a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased inside it. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The point that any other moggy in the Dewsbury area that's got a similar collar could perchance gain access to your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products because they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
The next level in feline entry security is to fit the type of cat flap that recognises your pet's micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it unlocks and allows just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.
No matter which cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it has the capability to allow exit from your property only, be locked fully, enable only entrance into your property, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This offers total control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night time. A few of the higher end models can be set to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your cat's and your requirements.
If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your house in Dewsbury. Not in any circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who are delighted to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN DEWSBURY
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will diminish its security, strength and insulating properties. Actually, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Dewsbury cat flap installer will measure your current unit and order the new one. This new glazed pane will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap will be fitted. You may have to wait two weeks or so for this pane to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you have taken possession of your new glass pane, the old one can be taken out and the new panel installed. It's now possible to install your new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we mentioned above, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Dewsbury. It's usually better to call on a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are unsure of making a hole in your front door. This kind of task won't be too costly and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, because some uPVC doors are steel lined for additional security. A one piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it may be less expensive to swap the panel for a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If you don't really want to cut a hole in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you could get a cat flap installed within an outside wall. Needing much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is certainly better left to a professional, if it is to be accomplished successfully. There are several possibilities for this kind of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) configuration. This installation involves a square hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap is then attached to each end of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Dewsbury - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a window, door or wall, but it's damaged or not working properly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. A reputable cat flap installer in Dewsbury will be capable of removing the old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without damaging the window, wall or door.
When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be necessary to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. The glass panel must be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
