Cat Flap Fitter Hartlepool County Durham (TS24): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your house in Hartlepool, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats are inclined to get irritated and crabby when constantly kept inside, and not able to roam free. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of allowing your pet accessibility to outside world by means of a cat flap. However, what form of cat flap is better for your circumstances?
A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A piece of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. While this might be appropriate in a shed door or fence panel, the vast majority of cat owners in Hartlepool would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.
This simple model is still far from perfect since it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property, nonetheless it can be improved upon with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.
Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Subsequently, any animal without one of these special collars cannot get into or leave your home. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Hartlepool area that's got a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products and can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
Fitting a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry security for felines in Hartlepool. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. These days, nearly all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking system for added security. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable exit from your home only, be fully locked, permit entrance into your house only, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This offers you a variety of choices on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. Some high end devices can be set to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements.
If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap should not be all that difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your property in Hartlepool.

These situations call for the skills and expertise of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who is certain to have have the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN HARTLEPOOL
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can't be fitted into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Drilling holes in any kind of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its insulating properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be done in any circumstances whatsoever.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Hartlepool cat flap fitter will measure your existing pane and put in an order for the new one. This new glazed panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure where your cat flap will be installed. This might take a week or two to produce, but it's the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. When your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will remove the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. It will now be possible to install and set up your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wood doors are the simplest alternative in relation to installing a new cat flap on your house in Hartlepool. It is normally better to employ the expert services of a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are at all unsure of cutting a big hole in your back or front door. An undertaking like this should not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your cat will be using an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some uPVC doors can have a steel lining for added security. The models of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it might be advisable to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to get a cat flap fitted into an outside wall of your property in Hartlepool, if you do not want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more skill and equipment to fit, so it's certainly better left to an expert. You can choose a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angle model which enables entry through a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will need to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap can then be installed on both sides of the hole.

A trusted cat flap fitter in Hartlepool will be capable of removing the unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without causing damage to the surrounding wall, window or door.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is important to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new cat flap. If it's found this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
