Cat Flap Fitter Hessle East Yorkshire (HU13): Fitting a cat flap to an external door or wall in your property in Hessle, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. Cats are inclined to get irritated and crabby when continuously kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. Allowing your pet access to the outside world with a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. However, what style of cat flap is the best solution for your circumstances?
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is fixed over it to give protection from the weather. Even though this may be acceptable in a garden fence panel or outhouse door, the vast majority of cat owners in Hessle would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their home.
This simple design is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other cats or animals to get into your house, however it can be marginally improved on by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position.
The next step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. This means that any animal that doesn't have one of these special collars cannot access or leave your house. Again this is a pretty basic form of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the area that has a similar style of collar could perhaps access your home. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
Picking a cat flap that can identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next level in access devices for felines in Hessle. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will allow multiple entries. When your cat is close to the flap, it unlocks and permits solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whenever you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain it's of a type that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking mechanism. This means that it's got the capability to enable only entry into your home, enable exit only, be locked fully, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This will give you options for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap works. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the high end brands of cat flap.
Putting in a cat flap by yourself can be fairly simple if you have a solid timber door, and reasonable DIY abilities. Under no circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have the knowledge and tools for this sort of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN HESSLE
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can't be mounted into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Cutting or drilling into any sort of double glazing will damage its strength and security, together with its insulation attributes. In actual fact, it renders the glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Hessle cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing pane and put in an order for the new one. This new glazed panel will arrive with a hole cut out as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be installed. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take one or two weeks to produce. After construction, the old glass pane will be taken out, and the new one put in its place. The cat flap can then be installed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as we already mentioned, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Hessle. It is usually wise to hire the services of a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are at all nervous about cutting a big hole in your back or front door. This kind of task won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. Having said that, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security, which can cause some problems. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be cheaper to swap the panel for a single pane style.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could decide to install your cat flap into an outside wall of your property. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a little more equipment and expertise to fit, so it's certainly better left to a specialist. You can choose a straight-through tunnel design, or even a right angled model that enables access via a pillar. Installation entails a neat square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted. A suitable cat flap can then be fitted to each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Hessle - If your wall, door or window already has a cat flap installed, but it is not working, or is damaged, it is possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. A decent cat flap fitter in Hessle will be able to remove your unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the door, window or wall.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be necessary to check that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new cat flap. The pane must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
