Cat Flap Fitter Goole East Yorkshire (DN14): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Goole house provides your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a happy life. When continuously kept indoors, cats just like people, will get crabby and irritated. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the positive aspects of allowing your furry friend easy access to outside world with a cat flap. So, you think it's a good idea, but exactly what is best style of cat flap for your pet?
The most straightforward style of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat pass through. Most Goole cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property, although this could be suitable for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.
As this option allows other cats or animals to enter your home, it's not at all ideal, although it can be improved on to some extent by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
The next step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat must 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 leave or access your property, therefore preventing some undesirable visitors. The fact that any other cat in the Goole area that has a similar collar may be able to get into your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
The kind of cat flap which is can be recognised by your pet's microchip, is the next level in feline entrance security. The microchip number is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). The flap is unlocked when your cat is close-by, only permitting entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
When you are buying a cat flap, you should make sure it's of a design that can be locked. The majority of cat flaps sold currently boast a 4-way locking system. Which means it's got the capability to enable exit from your house only, be fully locked, allow only access into your premises, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This will give you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. Some of the high end cat flaps can be programmed to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements.
If you are fairly good at DIY, fitting your own cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid timber door on your home in Goole. But, if you're intending to fit it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you ought to seek outside help. This kind of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who will be ready to undertake such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN GOOLE
Double Glazing Installations - If you employ somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its insulating attributes, strength and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be done under any circumstances.
A reliable Goole cat flap fitter will meticulously get the dimensions of your existing unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing firm. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This is the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take two weeks or so to manufacture. When your new glass pane is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. The fitting of your cat flap can then be completed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, solid wooden doors are the least complicated option with regards to installing a new cat flap on your house in Goole. It's generally wise to employ the expert services of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're nervous about cutting a big hole in your door. This sort of project won't be too expensive and is well worth doing properly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. Having said that, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security, which can cause some issues. The simplest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an external wall. Needing considerably more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a professional, if it's to be accomplished successfully. You could choose a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angled model which allows access through a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will need to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your furry pal can get in and out of your house whenever it desires.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Goole - If your window, wall or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. A good cat flap fitter in Goole will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without harming the surrounding window, door or wall.
If the substitute cat flap is being mounted in a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. The glass pane must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues, if you discover that this is not the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
