Cat Flap Fitter Ollerton Nottinghamshire (NG22): Installing a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Ollerton property helps to give your cat the independence that it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats which are kept inside, just like humans, can often show signs of irritation. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the positive aspects of allowing your pet access to the outside world by way of a cat flap. However, what kind of cat flap is better in your case?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A piece of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. Obviously, this is very basic, and will not be good enough for most cat owners in Ollerton, who would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although it might be okay for a garden fence panel or shed door.
This basic design can be improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way from being perfect since it enables other animals or cats to enter your property.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal will be able to access or leave your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The downside is that any other moggy in the Ollerton area that has a similar style of collar could perhaps gain access to your home with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.
The next stage in feline entrance security is to use the type of cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's microchip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). The flap is unlocked anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to pets that have a micro-chip.
Being able to lock it in place is essential regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold these days boast a 4-way locking system. Which means it has the capability to allow only entrance into your premises, permit only exit from your home, be locked fully, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This gives you a variety of options on exactly how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. In keeping with yours and your cat's requirements, there is even the option to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with a few of the top-end models.
If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be too difficult, if you've got a timber door on your house in Ollerton. Although, if it has to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should on no account even attempt it by yourself. Such situations require the skills and expertise of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who is certain to have have all the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN OLLERTON
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and show them the gate. It's simply not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will damage its security and strength, together with its thermal insulation properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should not be attempted in any circumstances whatsoever.
A reliable Ollerton cat flap installer will diligently get the dimensions of your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing supplier. This new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take one or two weeks to manufacture. When your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap will then be installed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wooden door panels are, as stated earlier, the simplest options for installing a new cat flap in Ollerton. It's normally safer to get in touch with a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are in any way uncertain about cutting a hole in your front or back door. This should provide you with the reassurance that you will finish up with an expertly fitted cat friendly flap, and that the job has been undertaken properly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, because some uPVC door panels can have a steel lining for additional security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into a door, you could opt to install the cat flap on an outside wall of your property. Calling for considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly better left to a specialist, if it is to be accomplished successfully. Almost all wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angled access through a pillar can also be achieved. This installation involves a square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with a cat flap so your furry pal can exit and enter the house whenever it wants.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Ollerton - If your door, wall or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's not working, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the existing cavity. A trusted cat flap installer in Ollerton will be able to remove your old cat flap, and fix a brand new one as a replacement without causing damage to the surrounding wall, door or window.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed panel that's been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed accurately is essential. If it is found that this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
