Cat Flap Fitter Nantwich Cheshire (CW5): The installation of a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your house in Nantwich, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. When kept indoors, cats as with people, will get irritated and grumpy. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your pet easy access to world outside with a cat flap. But, what sort of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The simplest type of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but let the cat pass through. Even though this might be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door, the vast majority of cat owners in Nantwich would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.
This standard design is still a long way off being perfect since it allows other animals or cats a way to enter your house, however it can be to some degree improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. This requires your cat to have a collar that's got either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and get into or leave your property, hence keeping out some undesirable visitors. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar can still gain access to your house when using this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products and can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
Having a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in access devices for felines in Nantwich. You need to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your microchipped pets to enter or exit.
Whatever cat flap you buy, it must have the ability to be locked in position. For extra flexibility, nearly all cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism nowadays. This allows your cat flap to enable admission into your house only, permit exit from your home only, be fully locked, or have two way exit and entrance functionality. This will give you a range of choices on precisely how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there is even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more advanced models.
If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your house in Nantwich. However, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it on your own. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN NANTWICH
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can't be installed into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Drilling holes in any sort of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, together with its insulation attributes. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure your current double glazed unit and have a glazing company make a new purpose made pane. As part of its structure this new double glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. After construction, the old glass unit can be taken out, and the new one put in its place. Your cat flap will then be fitted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest option for installing a new cat flap in Nantwich, as was previously mentioned, are wood doors. It's normally best to hire the services of a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're at all uncertain about cutting a big hole in your door. This will give you the reassurance that you are going to end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been carried out in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. It pays to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels can have a steel lining for further security. A one-piece panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be less expensive to swap the panel for a single pane type.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed within an external wall. This form of installment is definitely better left to the pros, because it requires a lot more skill and equipment to execute. There are several possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) model. This installation entails a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap can then be fitted to both ends of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Nantwich - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating properly, the existing hole in your door, window or wall can still be used providing the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap fitter will take off the unwanted cat flap, without harming the door, window or wall, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new flap. The glass pane must be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.

Whether you'd like your cat flap fitted in a door, wall or window, you will find that there are a number of different specialist cat flap fitters, handyman contractors and even double glazing suppliers in and around Nantwich who'll be willing to help. There's no better technique for locating a good cat flap fitter than asking friends and relations for recommendations. You can be fairly certain that if they've been happy to recommend somebody who's done work for them, you will probably have a similar experience.
If you can't find an installer through personal recommendation, always obtain 2 or 3 different quotations before making your choice, and keep in mind that the cheapest is often not the best.
