Cat Flap Fitter Sandiacre Derbyshire (NG10): Installing a cat flap doesn't just save you the trouble of opening the door every time the cat decides to stroll in or out, it also gives your cat extra independence and boosts it's quality of life. When constantly kept inside, cats as with people, will get grumpy and irritated. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your furry friend access to the outside world via a cat flap. If this sounds like a good option for you, what type of cat flap should you fit?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut in an external door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to give some protection from the elements. The majority of Sandiacre cat owners would doubtless favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house, although this could be okay for a garden fence panel or shed door.
As this solution permits other animals or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, though it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. Subsequently, any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot access or leave your home. Again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar could possible gain access to your home. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.
A model of cat flap which is can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next stage in Sandiacre feline entrance security. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. Entry and exit are only possible for microchipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is nearby.
The ability to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you are buying. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays boast a four way locking system. This means that the cat flap can allow only entry into your home, be locked fully, permit exit from your property only, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This will give you solutions for all times of night and day, to control exactly how your cat flap functions. The wherewithal to perform different functions according to the time of day, and based on your cat's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.
If you are pretty decent at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you've got a wooden door on your Sandiacre home. However, if it has to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it on your own. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN SANDIACRE
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, send them on their way immediately. A new cat flap can't be mounted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its insulating attributes. The truth is, it makes your glazing unsafe and it should never be done.
A specialist cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazing pane and have a local Sandiacre glazing firm knock up a new one. As part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed nicely into. This could take one or two weeks to manufacture, however it is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once your new pane of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. The installing of your cat flap can then be concluded.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, timber door panels are the simplest option when it comes to cat flap installation on your house in Sandiacre. If you are a bit hesitant about making an opening in your door, you might be better off hiring a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This sort of task won't be too costly and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You'll have to ascertain what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for added security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single panel type.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed in an exterior wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more expertise and equipment to fit, so it is definitely best left to a specialist. You can go for a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angle model that permits access through a pillar. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly made into your wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so that your cat can get in and out of your home whenever it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Sandiacre - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a window, wall or door, but it is broken or not working properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for installing a new one. An expert Sandiacre cat flap fitter will be glad to take out your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, window or door on which it's mounted.
Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed panel that's been pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is essential. If it's found this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
