Cat Flap Fitter Market Harborough Leicestershire (LE16): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your house in Market Harborough, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of independence. When kept indoors, cats much like humans, will get irritated and grouchy. Having access to the outside world with a cat flap will help your furry friend to stay fit, both mentally and physically. However, what sort of cat flap is best in your case?
The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A piece of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. Most Market Harborough cat owners would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although this may be okay for a shed or outhouse door.
This simple design can be to some degree improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way from being perfect as it enables other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your house.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your property unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can gain access to your house with this type of cat flap fitted. An enhancement to this device is an RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.
A cat flap that is can be operated by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next stage in feline entrance security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). The flap is unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only permitting entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
No matter which cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in place. Most cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means it's got the capability to be locked fully, enable only admittance into your property, enable only exit from your home, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This gives full control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. The ability to perform specific functions according to the time of day, and based on your cat's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.
If you're pretty decent at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your house in Market Harborough. However, if it needs to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. These situations require the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have all the tools and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN MARKET HARBOROUGH
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation properties as well. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances whatsoever.
A reliable Market Harborough cat flap installer will carefully measure up your current pane and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. So that the cat flap can be nicely fitted into it, this new glazed panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once you've taken possession of your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. Your cat flap can then be fitted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, timber door panels are the simplest alternative with regards to cat flap installation on your property in Market Harborough. If you are a bit uncertain about creating an opening in your back or front door, you might be better off getting in touch with an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This will provide you with the reassurance that you will end up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been completed correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the internal construction, since some door panels are lined with steel for added security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be better to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could opt to install a cat flap on an outside wall of your property. This kind of installment is certainly better left to the pros, since it requires a lot more equipment and skill to accomplish. You will find there are several options for this sort of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angular (through pillar) model. A square shaped hole will need to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap is then fitted to both sides of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Market Harborough - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it is not working, or is damaged, it's quite possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. Your cat flap fitter should be able to remove the old cat flap, without harming the surrounding wall, door or window, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is being installed into a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must ensure that the existing glass has been cut and installed correctly. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the glass will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
