Cat Flap Fitter Spalding Lincolnshire (PE11): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Spalding home. Cats kept indoors, just like humans, can show signs of irritability. Allowing your pet accessibility to outside world via a cat flap can help keep them mentally and physically fit. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is perfect sort of cat flap for your beloved pet?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. Though this may be acceptable for a garden fence panel or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Spalding would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property.
This basic design is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other cats or creatures to get into your home, but it can be improved on slightly by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Therefore any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or get into your home. The downside is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar may be able to access your house when using this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system having a user programmed unique identifier.
The type of cat flap that's can be triggered by your pet's own microchip, is the next stage in feline access security. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is close by.
Being able to lock it in position is essential no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. For added security, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, permit only exit from your home, enable only admittance into your premises, or have two-way entry and exit functionality. This will give you a number of options on exactly how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. Some more expensive devices can be programmed to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, in line with your pet's and your requirements.
If you are fairly decent at DIY, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you've got a wooden door on your Spalding home. But, if you are looking to fit it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you ought to ask for outside help. This kind of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who are delighted to accept such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN SPALDING
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring 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. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it takes away the insulation attributes as well. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be done in any circumstances.
A reputable Spalding cat flap fitter will carefully take the precise measurements of your existing unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing company. As part of its structure this new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed snugly into. You might have a one or two week waiting period for this special pane to be produced, however if you want a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've acquired your new glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as stated previously, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Spalding. It's usually best to employ the expert services of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are in any way unsure about cutting a big hole in your front door. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you'll finish up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. However, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for added security, which could cause problems. The easiest kind of installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could decide to install your cat flap on an exterior wall of your house. Calling for a lot more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is definitely best left to the pros, if it's to be completed successfully. You could pick out a straight-through tunnel design, or even a right angle model which enables entry via a pillar. This installation calls for a square hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your cat can enter and exit the house whenever it desires.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Spalding - If your wall, window or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working, or is damaged, it is possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. A trustworthy cat flap installer in Spalding will be capable of removing the unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without harming the surrounding window, door or wall.
If the new cat flap is to be fitted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must double check that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately. If it's found this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
