Cat Flap Fitter Killamarsh Derbyshire (S21): Fitting a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Killamarsh property provides your cat with the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when constantly kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. Giving your cat accessibility to world outside with a cat flap can also help keep them physically and mentally fit. If you opt to go down the cat flap route, you'll then have to decide what is the best type of cat flap for you.
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is essentially that. A bit of flexible material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. Most Killamarsh cat owners would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although this might be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door.
Since this option allows other creatures or cats to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some extent by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. This requires your cat to use a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The downside is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar might be able to gain access to your home when using this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products and can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
The kind of cat flap that's capable of identifying your cat's micro-chip, is the next stage in Killamarsh feline access security. The details of your cat's microchip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and allows solely your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.
The ability to lock it in place is vital whichever cat flap you are buying. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system nowadays. This allows your cat flap to enable only entrance into your premises, enable exit only, be locked fully, or have 2-way entry and exit capability. This gives total control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The wherewithal to carry out specific 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 top-end models of cat flap.
If you've got a timber door in your home in Killamarsh, fitting a cat flap yourself should not be too difficult. On no account should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. These types of fittings require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN KILLAMARSH
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them packing immediately. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Any kind of double glazed unit will be damaged by cutting into it, and will take away its thermal insulation attributes, strength and security. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should never be attempted.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Killamarsh cat flap installer will measure your current pane and put in an order for a brand new one. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, even though it may take two weeks or so to produce. Once you have acquired your new modified pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new panel installed. It will now be possible to fit the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for installing a new cat flap in Killamarsh, as was stated earlier, are timber door panels. It's often wise to call on a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are at all dubious about making a big hole in your back or front door. This type of undertaking won't be too expensive and is really worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional provides you with that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. However, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for extra security, which might cause issues. The easiest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always choose to install a cat flap into an exterior wall of your property in Killamarsh. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more skill and equipment to install, therefore it's certainly best left to a specialist. There are a couple of options for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. A square hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to permit your feline friend to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Killamarsh - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working correctly, the current hole in your door, wall or window can be fitted with a replacement as long as the new cat flap is of a similar size. You local cat flap installer should be able to remove the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding door, wall or window, and fit a new flap for your cat.
When your installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. If it becomes obvious that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
