Cat Flap Fitter Rowley Regis West Midlands (B64): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your property in Rowley Regis, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats which are kept inside, as with people, can often show signs of frustration. Giving your furry friend access to the world outside by way of a cat flap can also help keep them mentally and physically fit. However, what style of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most fundamental sort of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a bendable material is fixed over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the weather. The majority of Rowley Regis cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their house, although this might be acceptable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.
This simple model can be improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it's still a long way off being perfect as it enables other creatures or cats to enter your house.
A step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your home unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a fairly simple kind of cat flap, as any other cat in the area who has a similar model of collar may be able to access your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment and can be programmed by the householder to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
Having a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry security for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. Whenever your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow only your microchipped pets to exit/enter.
When you are buying a cat flap, you must make certain it's of a type that can be locked. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a four way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can permit only admittance into your home, be fully locked, allow exit only, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This offers full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. Some high end devices can be set to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements.
If you are fairly decent at DIY, fitting a cat flap should not be that difficult, if you have a timber door on your Rowley Regis home. Although, if it needs to be installed into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it on your own. This sort of installation requires the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented handymen who are glad to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN ROWLEY REGIS
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them on their way. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, as well as its insulation attributes. The truth is, it renders your glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Rowley Regis cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current pane and put in an order for a brand new one. This new glazed pane will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap can be fitted. This is really 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. When your new panel of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The installing of the cat flap will then be undertaken.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for new cat flap installations in Rowley Regis, as was mentioned previously, are solid timber door panels. If you're nervous about cutting a hole in your front or back door, it's advisable to call on an expert to undertake the project for you. This type of project won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some uPVC doors are lined with steel for added security. A one-piece panel enables easier installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to exchange this panel for a single pane type.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed in an external wall. Calling for far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly best left to the pros, if it's to be executed correctly. You could go with a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angle model that allows entry via a pillar. Installation involves a square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so that your cat can exit and enter your house whenever it desires.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Rowley Regis - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can still be used provided that the new flap is of an equivalent size. An experienced Rowley Regis cat flap installer will be glad to take off your old device and replace it with a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's secured.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is important to make sure that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new cat flap. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will need to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
