Cat Flap Fitter Rawmarsh South Yorkshire (S62): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your home in Rawmarsh, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats are inclined to get irritated and grouchy when kept indoors, and not able to roam. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your furry friend easy access to world outside via a cat flap. If this seems like a good option for you, exactly what sort of cat flap should you choose?
The simplest type of cat flap is basically that. A piece of flexible material hung over a hole in a door to enable a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. Naturally, this is really basic, and will rarely adequate for most cat owners in Rawmarsh, who would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it might be okay for an outhouse or shed door.
This simple model can be improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, however it is still far from ideal since it allows other cats or animals a way to enter into your property.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your house, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the area that has a similar collar could possible gain access to your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next level in feline entry security is to fit a model of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own microchip. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). The flap will be unlocked whenever your cat is nearby, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a microchip.
No matter which cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in place. These days, nearly all cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking system for added flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, enable only exit from your home, permit admission into your property only, or have two way exit and entrance capability. This provides total control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there's even the possibility to perform different functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more expensive devices.
If you have a timber door on your home in Rawmarsh, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult. But, if you are intending to fit it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you must seek outside assistance. These situations require the skills and expertise of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have the tools and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN RAWMARSH
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling holes in any sort of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, together with its insulation attributes. In reality, it renders the glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.
A specialist cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazing pane and have a local Rawmarsh glazing firm knock up a new purpose made pane. As part of its construction this new glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take a week or so to produce. When your new glass panel shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The installing of the cat flap will then be completed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we previously mentioned, the easiest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Rawmarsh. If you're a bit uncertain about creating an opening in your back or front door, you might be better off contacting a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should give you the reassurance that you will end up with an expertly fitted cat friendly flap, and that the job has been completed in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It pays to know the interior construction, since some uPVC doors are lined with steel for added security. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an outside wall. Requiring far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a professional, if it's to be completed successfully. There are a couple of options for this kind of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole neatly made into your specified wall. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to each side of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Rawmarsh - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working properly, the existing hole in your door, wall or window can be used for a replacement as long as the new cat flap is of a comparable size. Your cat flap installer will remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the door, window or wall, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the replacement cat flap is going to be fitted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must make sure that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately. If it is found this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
