Cat Flap Fitter Todmorden West Yorkshire (OL14): To allow your cat the independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Todmorden property. When kept inside, cats much like people, will get irritated and crabby. Allowing your cat access to the outside world by means of a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. However, what sort of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole is cut in a door and a bendable material is hung over it to give a bit of some protection from the elements. The vast majority of cat owners in Todmorden would prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house, although this could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.
Because this solution will allow other creatures or cats to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced to some degree by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal will be able to get into or leave your house unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Once again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Todmorden area that's got a similar model of collar could possible gain access to your house. An enhancement to this equipment is an RF cat flap/collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
The kind of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next level in feline entry security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you should make certain it's of a design that can be locked. For extra security, most cat flaps have a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that the cat flap can allow exit from your property only, permit only entrance into your premises, be locked fully, or be set for two way exit and entry. This will give you a number of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night. Some of the more advanced devices can be programmed to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with your pet's and your needs.
If you're pretty decent at DIY, installing a cat flap should not be too difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your Todmorden home. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. This type of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who'll be ready to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN TODMORDEN
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can not be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes too. In actual fact, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.
A reliable Todmorden cat flap installer will diligently get the dimensions of your current panel and order a custom-made one from a local glazing supplier. As part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted nicely into. You might have a one or two week wait for this pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once your new pane of glass is delivered, the installer will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. The installation of your cat flap will then be concluded.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber door panels are, as already stated, the easiest options for cat flap installation in Todmorden. If you are a bit unsure about creating an opening in your front or back door, you may be happier hiring an experienced handyman or cat flap fitter instead. This type of project should not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your cat will have the use of an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. Having said that, some uPVC doors have a steel lining for added security, which may cause some problems. The models of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it might be better to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to get a cat flap fitted in an outside wall of your home in Todmorden, if you do not want to cut chunks out of your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons. Needing considerably more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly better left to a professional, if it is to be accomplished successfully. You can decide on a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angle model which permits access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your furry friend can enter and exit the house whenever it desires.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Todmorden - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your window, door or wall, but it's damaged or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with luck, still be used for installing a new one. An expert Todmorden cat flap fitter will gladly take out your old device and replace it with a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, door or wall on which it is attached.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new cat flap. The panel will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it's found that this is not the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.
