Cat Flap Fitter Penistone South Yorkshire (S36): An ideal way to improve your cat's independence and improve it's quality of life is to install a cat flap on an external wall or door of your property in Penistone. Cats are like humans in many ways, and will sometimes start to show signs of frustration and anxiety if kept indoors for significant periods of time. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the positive aspects of giving your cat easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap. If this sounds like a good option for you, what style of cat flap should you put in?
The most rudimentry style of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to offer some protection from the elements. Whilst this may be acceptable for a fence panel or outhouse door, the vast majority of Penistone cat owners would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.
This basic model can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other animals or cats to enter into your house.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to have a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. No animal will be able to get into or leave your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. The reality that any other cat in the Penistone area that's got a similar model of collar will be able to get into your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. An upgrade to this equipment is an RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the householder.
Installing a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. The microchip details are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing access to pets that have a microchip.
The ability to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold today boast a four way locking mechanism. Which means it has the capability to allow only entrance into your premises, permit exit from your home only, be fully locked, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This gives full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The wherewithal to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on your pet's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the high end brands of cat flap.
If you've got a timber door in your house in Penistone, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Not in any circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. These types of fixtures require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN PENISTONE
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazed pane and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new glazed unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. This could take a week or two to manufacture, however it's the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've received your new pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new panel fitted. The fitting of your cat flap can then be undertaken.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber door panels are, as I stated earlier, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Penistone. It's normally safer to employ the expert services of a professional handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're nervous about creating a big hole in your front or back door. This sort of project should not be expensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your pet will be using a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You'll have to determine what the interior construction of you door actually is, since for extra security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, 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 aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could always choose to install your cat flap on an external wall of your house. This sort of installment is certainly better left to the pros, since it calls for considerably more equipment and skill to accomplish. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, however right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. A neat square hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on either end to enable your furry friend to exit and enter as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Penistone - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole in your window, door or wall can still be used provided that the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. A decent cat flap fitter in Penistone will efficiently remove the old cat flap, and fit a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the door, window or wall.
Before installing a new flap in a double glazing pane that has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been fabricated, cut and installed correctly is essential. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the pane will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
