Cat Flap Fitter Llanelli Wales (SA14): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your home in Llanelli, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. When continuously kept indoors, cats as with people, will get irritated and crabby. Giving your furry friend access to the outside world by way of a cat flap can also help to keep them physically and mentally fit. If this seems like a good option for you, what style of cat flap should you put in?
The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to give a bit of protection from the weather. Whilst this could be suitable in an outhouse door or garden fence panel, most cat owners in Llanelli would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home.
Since this option allows other cats or creatures to enter your home, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to wear a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your house, thus keeping out some unwelcome visitors. The downside is that any other moggy in the area that has a similar style of collar might be able to get into your home when using this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products as they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
The next stage in feline access security is to consider the type of cat flap that recognises your cat's own microchip. You have to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you've got more than one cat it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.
The ability to lock it in place is essential regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. Most cat flaps sold today boast a four way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable only admittance into your premises, be fully locked, enable exit from your property only, or have two way entry and exit capability. This offers you solutions for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap functions. A few of the more advanced cat flaps can be programmed to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with your cat's and your requirements.
If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, as long as you have a solid timber door on your Llanelli home. However, if it needs to be fitted in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it yourself. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who'll be delighted to accept such work.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN LLANELLI
Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the insulation properties too. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should never be attempted.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a local Llanelli glazing firm make a new purpose made one. So the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazed panel will be provided with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. You might have a one or two week waiting period for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. When your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as I already stated, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Llanelli. If you're a bit nervous about creating a hole in your front door, you may be better off contacting an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This kind of project will not be too costly and is worthwhile doing properly, if having 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. You will have to find out what the interior construction of you door actually is, because for extra security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be cheaper to replace the panel with a single pane type.
Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to have a cat flap fitted on an external wall of your home in Llanelli, if you do not want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons. This sort of installation is definitely best left to a professional, because it calls for far more skill and equipment to execute. You can decide on a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angled model that allows entry via a pillar. A square hole will need to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. An appropriate cat flap is then installed on both ends of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Llanelli - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either broken or not functioning correctly, the current hole in your wall, door or window can be used for a replacement provided that the new flap is of a similar size. You local cat flap fitter should be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the door, window or wall, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the replacement cat flap is going to be installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must ensure that the existing glass has been made and installed in the right way. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass must be removed and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
