Cat Flap Fitter Westbrook Cheshire (WA5): A great way to improve your cat's independence and boost it's quality of life is to install a cat flap on an outside wall or door of your house in Westbrook. When continuously kept inside, cats just like humans, will get crabby and irritated. When permitted easy access to the great outdoors with , your cat has a far better chance of staying fit and healthy. Of course, that's not the end of the story, since there are various forms of cat flaps, and determining what design is best for your pet might not be so simple.
The most basic form of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material hung over it, to provide protection from the weather, but let the cat climb through. Of course, this is very basic, and won't be sufficient for most cat owners in Westbrook, who would doubtless favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it may be appropriate for a fence panel or shed door.
As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your property, it is not at all recommended, though it can be improved on somewhat by holding the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. No animal will be able to leave or get into your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. Again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, because any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar will be able to get into your property. An enhancement to this equipment is an RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.
The next stage in feline entry security is to install the kind of cat flap that recognises your pet's own micro-chip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting access to animals that have a micro-chip.
The ability to lock it in position is essential regardless which cat flap you're purchasing. Currently, the majority of cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. Which means that it's got the capability to enable exit only, permit only admittance into your house, be locked fully, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This provides complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. Some high end devices can be programmed to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with yours and your pet's requirements.
If you have a wood door on your property in Westbrook, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. But, if you are intending to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you must ask for outside help. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WESTBROOK
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them packing. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Drilling holes in any kind of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, together with its thermal insulation properties. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
A professional cat flap fitter will measure up your current double glazed pane and have a glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. So the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazing pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a couple of weeks to produce. Once you've acquired your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new unit installed. The fitting of your cat flap will then be concluded.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as we already mentioned, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Westbrook. If you're dubious about creating a hole in your door, it's it may be better to call a professional to complete the task for you. This should provide you with the peace of mind that you are going to end up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the job has been undertaken properly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. Having said that, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which may cause some problems. The easiest type of installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could elect to install a cat flap into an outside wall of your property. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and skill to install, therefore it is definitely best left to the pros. There are a number of possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angular (through pillar) style. This installation entails a neat square hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so that your cat can exit and enter your house whenever it desires.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Westbrook - If your door, wall or window already has a cat flap installed, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the existing cavity. A specialist Westbrook cat flap fitter will gladly remove your old entry unit and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the window, wall or door on which it is secured.
When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is essential to make sure that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new cat flap. The glass panel will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems, if it is found this isn't the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.
