Cat Flap Fitter Romiley Greater Manchester (SK6): Installing a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Romiley property helps to give your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life. Cats tend to get irritated and grumpy when kept indoors, and not allowed to roam free. When your precious cat is granted easy access to the outside world by way of , there is a much better likelihood of it staying both mentally and physically fit. If you opt to go down the cat flap route, you'll then have to decide what kind of cat flap would be best for you.
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a bendable material is fixed over it to give a bit of protection from the elements. The majority of cat owners in Romiley would no doubt favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although this may be suitable for a fence panel or shed door.
This basic model can be somewhat improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter your property.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased within it. No animal will be able to leave or access your house unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The point that any other cat in the area who's got a similar collar may be able to gain access to your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment and can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
Choosing a cat flap which can identify your pet's microchip, is the next level in entry security for felines in Romiley. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is close by.
Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in position. For added security, most cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism these days. Which means that the cat flap can allow only exit from your home, permit admission into your premises only, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This offers you solutions for all times of night and day, to have control over exactly how your cat flap operates. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there is even the possibility to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with a number of the more advanced devices.
If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, putting in your own cat flap should not be too difficult, if you have a timber door on your home in Romiley. Under no circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These sorts of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ROMILEY
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them right away and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the insulating properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsound.
A professional cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local glazing firm make a new pane. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it can take two weeks or so to produce. Once your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap will then be fitted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we previously mentioned, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Romiley. If you are a little unsure of cutting an opening in your door, you may be happier contacting an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. A project like this will not be expensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your cat will be climbing through a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. Nonetheless, some uPVC door panels are steel lined for further security, which might cause problems. A one piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more economical to swap the panel for a single panel type.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could always opt to install the cat flap in an outside wall of your home in Romiley. This sort of installation is certainly best left to a professional, as it requires considerably more skill and equipment to accomplish. Nearly all wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angled access through a pillar is also a possibility. This installation involves a square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at either end to allow your furry pal to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Romiley - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your window, wall or door, but it is broken or not operating properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the window, door or wall, and install a brand new flap for your cat.
If the replacement cat flap is being mounted in a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must make sure that the glass has been made and installed in the right way. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane must be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.
