Cat Flap Fitter Newton Aycliffe County Durham (DL5): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your home in Newton Aycliffe, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. Cats are inclined to get irritated and crabby when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam. Allowing your furry friend easy access to outside world with a cat flap can help to keep them mentally and physically fit. However, what style of cat flap is the best solution for your circumstances?
The simplest sort of cat flap is basically that. A sheet of flexible material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. Although this may be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel, the majority of Newton Aycliffe cat owners would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property.
This uncomplicated model can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it's still a long way off being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats to enter your property.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to access or leave your property unless it is equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the area who's got a similar model of collar could perchance access your property. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
The kind of cat flap which is can be recognised by your pet's microchip, is the next level in feline entry security. You have to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is nearby, only allowing access to animals that have a micro-chip.
Being able to lock it in position is essential regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. These days, nearly all cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking mechanism for added flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, permit only entrance into your home, enable exit from your house only, or have 2-way exit and entry capability. This gives full control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. Some more advanced models can be set to perform particular functions according to the time of day, in line with your cat's and your needs.
If you've got a timber door on your property in Newton Aycliffe, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. However, if it is going to be installed into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should under no circumstances even attempt it yourself. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, who is certain to have have the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation project.

Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it takes away the insulation properties too. In reality, it makes your glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Newton Aycliffe cat flap fitter will measure your current panel and order the new one. So that your cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new double glazed unit will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be produced, however if you need a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. Once you have obtained your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new one installed. It's now possible to fit your cat flap.

This should give you the satisfaction of knowing that you'll finish up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the project has been done correctly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for extra security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could decide to install the cat flap into an outside wall of your house in Newton Aycliffe. This kind of installation is definitely better left to the pros, as it requires a lot more skill and equipment to execute. There are a number of possibilities for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. A square shaped hole will be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to each side of the hole.

A specialist Newton Aycliffe cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old unit and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the window, wall or door on which it's attached.
Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing panel which has been pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been made and installed in the right way is vital. The panel will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found this is not the case and corners were cut during the original installation.
