Cat Flap Fitter Hetton-le-Hole Tyne and Wear (DH5): Fitting a cat flap to an external door or wall in your property in Hetton-le-Hole, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. Cats tend to get grouchy and irritated when constantly kept inside, and not allowed to roam. Having accessibility to world outside by way of a cat flap will help your furry friend to remain fit, both mentally and physically. If this sounds like a good option for you, precisely what style of cat flap should you install?
The simplest sort of cat flap is essentially that. A piece of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. While this could be acceptable for an outhouse door or fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Hetton-le-Hole would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house.
As this solution allows other animals or cats to enter your home, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that doesn't have one of these special collars cannot leave or get into your property. The point that any other cat in the Hetton-le-Hole area who's got a similar collar could possible access your property, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
A cat flap which is can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Hetton-le-Hole feline access security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will allow multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is close-by, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain it's of a design that can be locked into position. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism these days. Which means it has the capability to allow entry into your property only, permit exit from your home only, be fully locked, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This offers 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 keeping with your pet's and your needs is also an option with some of the high end models of cat flap.
If you have a wooden door in your house in Hetton-le-Hole, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it has to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt it by yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have all the knowledge and equipment for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN HETTON-LE-HOLE
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Hetton-le-Hole cat flap fitter will measure your current unit and order the new one. As part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This could take a week or two to manufacture, however it's really the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, wooden doors are the easiest alternative with regards to cat flap installation on your house in Hetton-le-Hole. It is usually better to contact a competent carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're uncertain about making a big hole in your front door. A project of this sort will not be expensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your cat will be using an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the internal construction, since some doors have a steel lining for added security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it may be better to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always choose to install your cat flap into an exterior wall of your property. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more equipment and skill to install, so it is certainly best left to a professional. Nearly all wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angular access via a pillar is also a possibility. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole made into your selected wall. Each end of the hole is then installed with a cat flap so your furry pal can exit and enter your home whenever it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Hetton-le-Hole - If your window, wall or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. A specialist Hetton-le-Hole cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old device and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the wall, window or door on which it is attached.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it is essential to check that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new flap. The glass pane must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found that this isn't the case and corners were cut during the original installation.
