Cat Flap Fitter Newton-le-Willows Merseyside (WA12): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Newton-le-Willows house provides your cat with the independence it needs to live a life of contentment. When kept indoors, cats just like humans, will get irritated and crabby. Having easy access to world outside with a cat flap will help your furry friend to stay fit, both mentally and physically. So, you think it's a great idea, but which is best kind of cat flap for your precious pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A bit of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. The majority of Newton-le-Willows cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their home, although this may be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
Since this solution will allow other creatures or cats to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, although it can be improved on a little by keeping the flap in place with the addition of a magnetic strip.
A step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your house, hence preventing some undesirable visitors. The reality that any other cat in the area that has a similar model of collar will be able to access your property, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment as they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
A model of cat flap that is able to identify your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in Newton-le-Willows feline entrance security. The microchip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one cat). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.
Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold today feature a four way locking system. This allows your cat flap to enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, enable admittance into your premises only, or have 2-way exit and entry functionality. This will provide you with a range of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. A few of the higher end cat flaps can be programmed to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, based on yours and your cat's needs.
Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be quite easy if you've got a solid wood door, and reasonable DIY abilities. But, if you are looking to fit it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you must ask for outside assistance. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN NEWTON-LE-WILLOWS
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulating attributes too. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure your current double glazed unit and have a local glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed nicely into. This may take two weeks or so to manufacture, but it is the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. When your new glass pane is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The cat flap will then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, wooden doors are the least complicated option with regards to cat flap installation on your home in Newton-le-Willows. If you are uncertain about cutting a hole in your front door, it's a good move to call in a specialist to complete the task for you. This type of task will not be too costly and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, because some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it might be advisable to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed in an outside wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more equipment and expertise to install, so it is definitely best left to the pros. There are several options for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) model. A square shaped hole will need to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to enable your feline friend to come in and out as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Newton-le-Willows - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's not working, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is necessary to check that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane must be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
