Cat Flap Fitter Penarth Wales (CF64): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your property in Penarth, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. When constantly kept indoors, cats just like humans, will get crabby and irritated. Having easy access to outside world with a cat flap will help your pet to remain fit, both physically and mentally. However, what kind of cat flap is best for your circumstances?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to keep the elements out, but allow the cat pass through it. Although this could be appropriate in a shed door or garden fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Penarth would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home.
Because this solution allows other cats or creatures to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be improved on to some extent by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal will be able to access or leave your house unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The downside is that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar can access your property when using this sort of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.
The next level in feline entry security is to use the kind of cat flap which recognises your pet's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Whenever your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and allows just your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must ensure that it's of a type that can be locked. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps have a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it has the capability to permit only exit from your home, allow only admittance into your house, be locked fully, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This will provide you with a range of options on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night time. In keeping with yours and your cat's needs, there's even the possibility to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the high end models.
If you've got a timber door in your property in Penarth, putting in you own cat flap should not be that hard. Under no circumstances should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who will be ready to undertake such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN PENARTH
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them on their way. It's just not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in your double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazed unit and have a local Penarth glazing company make a new purpose made pane. This new glazed pane will have a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap will be fitted. This may take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it's basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. It will now be possible to install your cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as I stated previously, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Penarth. It's usually best to hire the services of a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are in any way dubious about creating a hole in your front or back door. This kind of task won't be too costly and is well worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. You or your fitter will need to verify what the internal structure of you door actually is, because for extra security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it might be easier to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could choose to install your cat flap on an external wall of your house in Penarth. This form of installment is undoubtedly better left to an expert, since it requires far more skill and equipment to accomplish. You will find there are a couple of options for this installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angled (through pillar) model. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut into your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at both ends to permit your furry friend to come and go as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Penarth - If you already have a cat flap installed on your window, door or wall, but it's broken or not working properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is to be fitted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must double check that the existing glass has been fabricated, cut and installed correctly. If it's found that this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
