Cat Flap Fitter Halewood Merseyside (L26): To give your cat the independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Halewood house. Cats kept inside, much like humans, can often show signs of irritability. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of allowing your cat access to the outside world by way of a cat flap. So, you are sold on the idea, but which is perfect form of cat flap for your pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A bit of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Even though this may be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door, the majority of Halewood cat owners would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property.
Because this option permits other creatures or cats to enter your home, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Halewood area who's got a similar model of collar could perhaps access your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
Installing a cat flap which can be operated by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in entrance security for felines in Halewood. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. When your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and permits solely your microchipped pets to exit or enter.
The ability to lock it in position is essential no matter which cat flap you are buying. For added security, most cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, enable exit only, permit access into your home only, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This offers you a variety of solutions on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. Based on your pet's and your needs, there's even the option to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with some of the higher end devices.
If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you have a solid timber door on your property in Halewood. But, if you're planning to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you ought to seek outside help. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN HALEWOOD
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can't be mounted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulation attributes as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.
A dependable Halewood cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a custom-made one from a local glazing company. This new glazed pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. You may have to wait a week or so for this special pane to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. Once your new glass pane shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The cat flap can then be mounted.
External Wooden Doors - The easiest alternative for cat flap installations in Halewood, as was previously mentioned, are solid timber door panels. It's usually advisable to contact a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're in any way unsure about making a hole in your door. This will give you the peace of mind that you'll wind up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been completed correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most instances. You or your installer will need to determine what the interior construction of you door actually is, since for added security certain uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be better to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into a door, you could always choose to install a cat flap in an outside wall of your home in Halewood. This form of installment is certainly best left to the pros, because it requires far more skill and equipment to execute. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angular access via a pillar is also possible. A neat square hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to permit your furry pal to come in and out as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Halewood - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap installed, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it's quite possible to mount a replacement over the existing cavity. You local cat flap fitter will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding window, wall or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that's been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been cut and installed in the right way is vital. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the panel will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems with the new cat flap.
