Cat Flap Fitter Markfield Leicestershire (LE67): Fitting a cat flap doesn't just save you the trouble of having to open the door every time your cat needs to stroll in or out, it also gives your cat extra independence and improves it's all round quality of life. Cats which are kept indoors, much like people, can often show signs of frustration. Having easy access to world outside with will help your cat to remain fit, both physically and mentally. However, what sort of cat flap is most suitable in your case?
A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but allow the cat pass through it. Most Markfield cat owners would no doubt favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although this may be appropriate for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.
This standard design is still a long way off being perfect since it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your home, but it can be somewhat improved upon by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. This requires your cat to have a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or access your house, thus keeping out some unwanted visitors. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar could perhaps get into your property, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.
Having a cat flap which can identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. The flap will be unfastened when your cat is nearby, only permitting access to animals that are microchipped.
When you're buying a cat flap, you must make sure it is of a type that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold these days have a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can be fully locked, allow exit only, allow only entry into your premises, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This will give you a range of choices on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. Based on your pet's and your needs, there's even the option to perform different functions according to the time of day, with several of the high end models.
If you're fairly good at DIY, installing a cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you've got a solid timber door on your Markfield home. Although, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't even attempt it yourself. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who is sure to have have all the knowledge and tools for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN MARKFIELD
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be mounted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not merely the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulating attributes as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsound.
A professional cat flap fitter will take the measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made pane. This new pane will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction where your cat flap can be installed. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take a couple of weeks to produce. Once you've obtained your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel fitted. Your cat flap can then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as already stated, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Markfield. It's normally best to employ the expert services of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are in any way nervous about cutting a big hole in your front or back door. This type of task won't be too costly and is worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed offers you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, as some door panels are steel lined for extra security. A one piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be less expensive to replace the panel with a single panel model.
Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. Requiring far more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly better left to a specialist, if it is to be executed correctly. The majority of cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angled access via a pillar is also an option. This installation involves a neat square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to allow your furry pal to come in and out as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Markfield - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working properly, the current hole in your window, wall or door can still be used provided that the new cat flap is of a comparable size. A trustworthy cat flap fitter in Markfield will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and fit a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the door, window or wall.
When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it will be necessary to confirm that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new cat flap. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
