Cat Flap Fitter Wednesbury West Midlands (WS10): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your house in Wednesbury, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. When kept indoors, cats much like people, will get irritated and grumpy. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of giving your cat access to the world outside via a cat flap. So, you're sold on the idea, but exactly what is best style of cat flap for your beloved pet?
A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material hung over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat pass through it. The majority of cat owners in Wednesbury would doubtless favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their home, although this could be appropriate for a fence panel or outhouse door.
This simple design is still a long way from being perfect since it allows other creatures or cats to get into your home, nevertheless it can be improved upon with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your house, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, since any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar might be able to gain access to your house. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.
The type of cat flap that's capable of identifying your cat's own micro-chip, is the next stage in Wednesbury feline entry security. The number of your cat's micro-chip is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.
Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you must make certain it is of a design that can be locked into position. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps on the market boast a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. This means that it has the capability to permit only exit from your home, allow only admittance into your house, be locked fully, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This gives you options for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap works. Based on yours and your cat's needs, there is even the option to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the top-end models.
If you've got a wood door on your house in Wednesbury, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. Under no circumstances should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN WEDNESBURY
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work right away and show them the gate. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the panel, but it takes away the insulation properties too. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be attempted under any circumstances.
A professional cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazed unit and have a local glazing company knock up a new purpose made pane. So that the cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new double glazing unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. You might have a one or two week wait for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap installed in an existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. After fabrication, your old glass unit can be removed, and the brand new one put in. The cat flap can then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wooden door panels are the simplest option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your property in Wednesbury. If you're a bit dubious about creating a sizeable hole in your door, you might be happier hiring an expert handyman or cat flap fitter instead. A project like this will not be expensive and will give you peace of mind that your cat can enjoy an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. You will have to ascertain what the internal construction of you door is, since for extra security certain uPVC doors are made with a galvanised steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be advisable to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - It's also feasible to have a cat flap mounted in an exterior wall of your house in Wednesbury, if you don't want to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. This type of installation is undoubtedly better left to an expert, because it requires far more equipment and skill to execute. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angular access via a pillar is also an option. This installation entails a square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap can then be installed on each side of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Wednesbury - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not functioning properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new flap is of a comparable size. You local cat flap installer will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding wall, door or window, and fit a new flap for your cat.
Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing pane which has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is essential. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass will need to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
