Cat Flap Fitter Eastwood Nottinghamshire (NG16): To provide your cat with the independence it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Eastwood home. Cats which are kept inside, just like humans, can show signs of frustration. Having easy access to outside world by way of a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both mentally and physically. However, what style of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most rudimentry form of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an external door and a bendable material is placed over it to offer some protection from the elements. The majority of Eastwood cat owners would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their property, although this may be acceptable for a fence panel or outhouse door.
This simple design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other cats or creatures a way to get into your house, nonetheless it can be slightly improved upon by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. No animal will be able to leave or access your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. Once again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, since any other moggy in the Eastwood area that's got a similar style of collar might be able to gain access to your property. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.
Installing a cat flap that can identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines. The micro-chip number is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your microchipped pets to exit/enter.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure that it is of a design that can be locked into position. For added flexibility, almost all cat flaps feature a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This means that the cat flap can permit only entrance into your home, enable exit only, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This gives full control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the night. A few of the higher end devices can be set to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's needs.
If you are fairly good at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your Eastwood home. But, if you're hoping to fit it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should ask for outside help. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN EASTWOOD
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 glazing window or door panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps can't be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its thermal properties, security and strength. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.
A specialist cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazing pane and have a local glazing firm knock up a new pane. As part of its construction this new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This could take a week or so to manufacture, but it is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. Once your new glass panel shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap can then be fitted.
External Wooden Doors - The least complicated alternative for installing a new cat flap in Eastwood, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are solid wooden door panels. If you are a little unsure about making a hole in your front door, you might be happier hiring a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you will end up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the job has been carried out in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most instances. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which may cause some issues. A one-piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could always decide to install the cat flap on an outside wall of your home in Eastwood. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely better left to the pros. There are a number of options for this kind of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) style. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole cut out of your selected wall. A suitable cat flap can then be installed on both sides of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Eastwood - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working properly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be used for a replacement so long as the new flap is of a similar size. A specialist Eastwood cat flap fitter will gladly take out your old device and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any damage to the wall, window or door on which it's attached.
When the cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be important to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new flap. If it's discovered that the previous installation was bodged, the glass must be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
