Cat Flap Fitter Shipston-on-Stour Warwickshire (CV36): To provide your cat with the independence that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Shipston-on-Stour house. Cats are quite like humans in many ways, and will sometimes show signs of frustration and anxiety if kept inside for long periods of time. Allowing your pet easy access to outside world with a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. So, you think it's a great idea, but what is perfect style of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most rudimentry type of cat flap is basically that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat go through. Though this may be acceptable in an outhouse door or fence panel, most cat owners in Shipston-on-Stour would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their house.
This basic design can be marginally improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it is still a long way off being ideal since it enables other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your home.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. Subsequently, any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't access or leave your home. Again this is a relatively basic type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Shipston-on-Stour area who's got a similar style of collar may be able to gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products and can be programmed by the householder to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
The next step-up in feline entrance security is to choose a cat flap which identifies your cat's own microchip. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is close by.
Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you should make sure that it is of a design that can be locked. Currently, almost all cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking system for extra security. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable only entry into your home, be locked fully, enable only exit from your home, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This gives you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. The facility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements is also an option with some of the higher end brands of cat flap.
If you've got a wooden door in your property in Shipston-on-Stour, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. But, if you're looking to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you must ask for outside help. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, who will have all the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN SHIPSTON-ON-STOUR
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation properties too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Shipston-on-Stour cat flap fitter will measure your current pane and order the new one. This new pane will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. You might have a one or two week wait for this to be made, but if you need a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. As soon as your new panel of glass is delivered, the fitter will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap will then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as already mentioned, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Shipston-on-Stour. It's generally wise to contact a professional handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're uncertain about making a hole in your back or front door. This will provide you with the peace of mind that you are going to wind up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken properly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be installed into uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some uPVC door panels are steel lined for added security. The simplest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed in an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for considerably more equipment and skill to fit, so it's certainly best left to a specialist. The majority of wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, but right angular access through a pillar can also be achieved. Installation involves a square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on both ends to enable your feline friend to come and go as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Shipston-on-Stour - If you already have a cat flap installed on your window, door or wall, but it's broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a new one. A reliable cat flap fitter in Shipston-on-Stour will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and fit a new one as a replacement without harming the window, wall or door.
If the substitute cat flap is going to be installed in a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must check that the glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems with the new cat flap.
