Cat Flap Fitter Ellesmere Port Cheshire (CH65): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your home in Ellesmere Port, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats tend to get crabby and irritated when constantly kept inside, and not able to roam. Allowing your pet easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap can also help keep them mentally and physically fit. If this seems like a good option for you, what form of cat flap should you go with?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material hung over it, to give protection from the elements, but permit the cat climb through. Although this may be suitable for a shed door or garden fence panel, the vast majority of cat owners in Ellesmere Port would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house.
As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, therefore keeping out some unwanted visitors. Again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar can easily access your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
The kind of cat flap that is can be operated by your pet's own microchip, is the next stage in Ellesmere Port feline entry security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whichever cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold today have a four way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can enable admission into your home only, be fully locked, enable exit from your house only, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This will give you alternatives for all times of day and night, to control how your cat flap works. The ability to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your needs is also an option with some of the high end models of cat flap.
If you are pretty decent at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a solid timber door on your house in Ellesmere Port. But, if you are looking to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should ask for outside assistance. This type of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who'll be happy to take on such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN ELLESMERE PORT
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, immediately send them on their way. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes as well. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances whatsoever.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Ellesmere Port cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing panel and order a brand new one. So that your cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take one or two weeks to manufacture. When your new glass panel arrives, the installer will remove the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, wooden door panels are the least complicated option when it comes to cat flap installation on your house in Ellesmere Port. It's generally wise to get in touch with an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are in any way unsure about creating a hole in your door. An undertaking like this should not be expensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your pet can enjoy an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be fitted into uPVC doors. You or your installer will need to ascertain what the internal structure of you door is, since for additional security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be better to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to get a cat flap installed into an external wall of your property in Ellesmere Port, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons. Requiring far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly best left to a professional, if it is to be accomplished successfully. You'll find there are a number of possibilities for this installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) pattern. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole neatly cut out of your specified wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to enable your cat to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Ellesmere Port - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. A specialist Ellesmere Port cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the door, wall or window on which it's attached.
If the replacement cat flap is to be installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must check that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed accurately. The glass panel will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues, if it's found that this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
