Cat Flap Fitter Stratford-upon-Avon Warwickshire (CV37): To allow your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Stratford-upon-Avon house. Cats tend to get grumpy and irritated when kept indoors, and not allowed to roam. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your cat easy access to world outside via a cat flap. But, what sort of cat flap is the best solution for your circumstances?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to give protection from the elements, but let the cat pass through it. Although this might be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door, the vast majority of cat owners in Stratford-upon-Avon would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their house.
This standard design can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your house.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. The drawback is that any other cat in the area who has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your home when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next stage in feline entrance security is to install a model of cat flap that identifies your pet's microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.
The ability to lock it in position is essential regardless of what cat flap you're purchasing. Most cat flaps sold currently have a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can enable exit from your property only, permit access into your property only, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This offers total control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also an option with some of the top-end models of cat flap.
If you've got a wood door on your house in Stratford-upon-Avon, fitting you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. But, if you're hoping to install it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you ought to ask for outside help. These situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is certain to have have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN STRATFORD-UPON-AVON
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and show them the gate. New cat flaps can't be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulating properties too. In fact, it makes your glazing unsafe and it should not ever be done.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Stratford-upon-Avon cat flap installer will measure your existing pane and put in an order for the new one. This new panel will have a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap can be fitted. This can take a week or two to manufacture, but it is the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. When your new glass panel is delivered, the installer will take out the old unit, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. It's now possible to fit the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wooden door panels are the least complicated alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your home in Stratford-upon-Avon. It's generally better to get in touch with an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're in any way dubious about making a big hole in your door. This will provide you with the reassurance that you will finish up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. However, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for further security, which can cause some issues. A one piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane type.
Wall Installation - If you do not really want to have a hole cut into your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it is certainly better left to the pros. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angled access through a pillar is also a possibility. A neat square hole will need to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. A cat flap can then be mounted on each side of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Stratford-upon-Avon - If your window, door or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is quite possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. A reputable cat flap installer in Stratford-upon-Avon will be capable of removing your old cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without harming the surrounding wall, window or door.
If the replacement cat flap is to be fitted in a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must check that the glass has been made and installed accurately. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane must be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
