Cat Flap Fitter Wath-upon-Dearne South Yorkshire (S63): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Wath-upon-Dearne, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. When kept indoors, cats just like humans, will get irritated and grouchy. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of allowing your cat accessibility to outside world by means of a cat flap. If this sounds like a good option for you, exactly what sort of cat flap should you install?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but permit the cat pass through. Of course, this is very basic, and won't be sufficient for most cat owners in Wath-upon-Dearne, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it could be okay for a garden fence panel or shed door.
This basic design is still far from perfect because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to get into your property, but it can be slightly improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.
Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your home unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar will be able to get into your house with this kind of cat flap installed. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier that can be programmed by the home owner.
The next step-up in feline entry security is to fit the kind of cat flap which identifies your cat's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is nearby.
Whatever cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in position. Most cat flaps sold nowadays have a four way locking mechanism. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, permit only access into your property, enable exit only, or have two way exit and entrance functionality. This provides you with alternatives for all times of day and night, to control exactly how your cat flap operates. Some of the higher end cat flaps can be programmed to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your needs.
Fitting a cat flap yourself can be fairly easy if you've got a solid timber door, and respectable do-it-yourself abilities. Under no circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This type of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented carpenters who are glad to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WATH-UPON-DEARNE
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will damage its thermal properties, strength and security. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.
A reputable Wath-upon-Dearne cat flap fitter will carefully measure up your existing pane and order a custom-made one from a local glazing company. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take two weeks or so to manufacture. After construction, your old glass can be taken out, and the new one put in. It will now be possible to fit the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as stated earlier, the simplest options for new cat flap installation in Wath-upon-Dearne. If you are a little uncertain about cutting a hole in your front door, you may be better off getting in touch with an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you'll end up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been carried out properly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many cases. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors have a steel lining for added security, which can cause some issues. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style door panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed within an exterior wall. This form of installation is definitely best left to a professional, since it requires much more skill and equipment to accomplish. Almost all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnel style, but right angular access through a pillar is also a possibility. Installation entails a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. A cat flap is then fitted to both sides of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Wath-upon-Dearne - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working properly, the existing hole in your window, wall or door can still be used providing that the new cat flap is of a similar size. A trusted cat flap installer in Wath-upon-Dearne will be able to remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without harming the door, wall or window.
When your cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to check that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new flap. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.
