Cat Flap Fitter Tynemouth Tyne and Wear (NE30): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Tynemouth house. Cats tend to get grumpy and irritated when continuously kept inside, and not able to roam. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main positive aspects of allowing your pet easy access to world outside with a cat flap. If this sounds like a great idea to you, precisely what form of cat flap should you put in?
The most straightforward kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give some protection from the weather. Of course, this is really basic, and will rarely good enough for most cat owners in Tynemouth, who would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although it might be okay for a fence panel or outhouse door.
This simple model is still far from perfect since it allows other cats or creatures a way to get into your home, however it can be slightly improved upon with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position.
The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires your cat to have a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. No animal will be able to get into or leave your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. The reality that any other cat in the area who has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your property, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap that is capable of identifying your pet's microchip, is the next stage in Tynemouth feline entrance security. The micro-chip details are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). When your cat is close to the flap, it unlocks and permits only your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.
No matter which cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in position. Nowadays, almost all cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for extra flexibility. Which means it has the capability to be locked fully, permit only exit from your home, permit entry into your house only, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This offers you a number of options on how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with your pet's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
If you've got a wood door in your property in Tynemouth, fitting a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. But, if you are planning to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should seek outside help. These types of fixtures require a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN TYNEMOUTH
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps can not be installed into existing double glazing window or door panels. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it takes away the thermal insulation properties too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsound.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Tynemouth cat flap fitter will measure your existing panel and put in an order for the new one. This new glazed pane will be delivered with a hole cut out as part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take two weeks or so to produce. Once you have acquired your new glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. It's now possible to install and set up your cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for cat flap installations in Tynemouth, as was mentioned previously, are solid wooden doors. If you are a bit uncertain about making a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be happier bringing in an expert cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This type of project won't be too costly and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional provides you with that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, since some uPVC door panels are steel lined for further security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be better to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could always decide to install your cat flap on an exterior wall of your house. Calling for a lot more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly better left to the pros, if it is to be accomplished correctly. You can pick out a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angled version which enables access through a pillar. Installation calls for a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can exit and enter the house whenever it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Tynemouth - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it's damaged or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. An experienced Tynemouth cat flap fitter will be glad to take out your old entry device and replace it with a new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it is attached.
When the cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is necessary to make sure that this was previously done correctly, before fitting the new flap. If it is found that this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the pane will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
