Cat Flap Fitter Gorseinon Wales (SA4): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Gorseinon, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats that are kept inside, much like people, will often show signs of irritation. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your pet easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap. If this seems like a great idea to you, what style of cat flap should you choose?
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is placed over it to give a bit of protection from the weather. Although this might be appropriate in a shed or outhouse door, the vast majority of cat owners in Gorseinon would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house.
Since this solution can allow other cats or animals to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your house unless it is fitted with this special collar. The reality that any other cat in the area that's got a similar style of collar could possible gain access to your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
The next stage in feline entrance security is to fit the kind of cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's micro-chip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and permit only your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in place. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps on the market boast a four way locking system for extra flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can permit only exit from your home, enable entrance into your home only, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This provides you with a number of choices on exactly how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night. The facility to perform different functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end brands of cat flap.
If you have a wood door on your house in Gorseinon, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it has to be installed in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt it yourself. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN GORSEINON
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, as well as its thermal insulation attributes. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Gorseinon cat flap installer will measure your current panel and put in an order for a brand new one. So the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure. You might have to wait a week or two for this special pane to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you have taken possession of your new glass pane, the old one can be taken out and the new panel installed. The fitting of your cat flap will then be concluded.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest option for new cat flap installations in Gorseinon, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are wood doors. If you're uncomfortable with cutting a hole in your front door, it's it may be better to contact an expert to do the work for you. This kind of project will not be expensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your cat will be climbing through an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many instances. It pays to know the internal construction, because some uPVC doors are steel lined for further security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it might be better to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to have a cat flap mounted in an outside wall of your house in Gorseinon, if you don't wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more skill and equipment to install, so it is definitely better left to the pros. There are several possibilities for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. This installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to permit your cat to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Gorseinon - If your window, wall or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. A competent cat flap installer in Gorseinon will efficiently remove the old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one as a replacement without damaging the door, window or wall.
Before installing a new flap in double glazing that's been previously pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been made and installed accurately is vital. If it is found this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
