Cat Flap Fitter Ossett West Yorkshire (WF5): The installation of a cat flap to an external door or wall in your home in Ossett, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats are inclined to get grouchy and irritated when continuously kept inside, and not able to roam free. Having easy access to outside world by way of a cat flap will help your cat to keep fit, both physically and mentally. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is best kind of cat flap for your pet?
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in an external door and a flexible material is hung over it to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. Most cat owners in Ossett would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home, although this could be suitable for a shed or outhouse door.
This basic design can be improved on slightly with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still far from perfect as it enables other creatures or cats a way to enter into your house.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar will be able to access your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
A model of cat flap which is can be operated by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next level in Ossett feline entrance security. The details of your cat's microchip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your microchipped pets to exit/enter.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure it's of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold nowadays boast a four way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can allow exit only, enable admittance into your premises only, be fully locked, or be set for two way exit and entry. This gives you choices for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap works. A few top-end models can be programmed to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, based on yours and your pet's needs.
If you have a wood door on your property in Ossett, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. But, if you're planning to fit it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you must ask for outside help. This kind of installation will require the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented odd job men who will be glad to undertake such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN OSSETT
Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, along with its thermal insulation properties. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be done.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazed unit and have a local Ossett glazing company knock up a new pane. So the cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new double glazing pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take a couple of weeks to produce. Once you have taken possession of your new pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one installed. The installing of the cat flap will then be concluded.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, timber door panels are the easiest option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your home in Ossett. If you are a bit unsure about making a sizeable hole in your front or back door, you may be happier getting in touch with an expert carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to finish up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the project has been completed correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, since some uPVC doors are lined with steel for extra security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be better to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed within an outside wall. Requiring far more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely best left to a specialist, if it's to be accomplished correctly. Most wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angled access via a pillar is also possible. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square hole cut into your specified wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to permit your furry friend to come and go as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Ossett - If your wall, door or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's quite possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. A reliable cat flap fitter in Ossett will efficiently remove your old cat flap, and fix a new one as a replacement without harming the surrounding wall, door or window.
If the substitute cat flap is being installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must double check that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way. The glass panel will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
