Cat Flap Fitter Whaley Bridge Derbyshire (SK23): The installation of a cat flap to an external door or wall in your house in Whaley Bridge, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats that are kept inside, as with people, can often show signs of irritability. Having access to the outside world by way of a cat flap will help your cat to keep fit, both physically and mentally. But, what sort of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most rudimentry type of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give protection from the weather. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely good enough for most cat owners in Whaley Bridge, who would favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although it might be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.
This simple design can be slightly improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it's still a long way off being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats to enter into your home.
A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your house, hence avoiding some unwanted visitors. The point that any other moggy in the area who has a similar collar could possible gain access to your house, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next level in feline entrance security is to install a model of cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is nearby.
When you are buying a cat flap, you must make sure that it is of a design that can be locked. For added security, nearly all cat flaps boast a 4-way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means that the cat flap can allow exit from your house only, permit access into your house only, be fully locked, or be set for two way exit and entry. This offers you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night. The wherewithal to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with your cat's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
If you've got a wood door in your house in Whaley Bridge, putting in a cat flap yourself should not be that hard. But, if you're planning to fit it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you should seek outside assistance. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WHALEY BRIDGE
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. It's just not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Cutting into any type of double glazing will damage its security and strength, along with its thermal insulation properties. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.
A professional cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazing unit and have a local Whaley Bridge glazing firm make a new pane. To ensure that your cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new double glazing unit will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. You might have a 1 or 2 week wait for this to be made, but if you need a cat flap installed in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. After fabrication, the old glass panel can be removed, and the brand new one put in. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.
External Wooden Doors - The easiest option for installing a new cat flap in Whaley Bridge, as was previously mentioned, are solid timber door panels. It is normally wise to get in touch with a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are in any way dubious about creating a hole in your front door. This will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to end up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been undertaken correctly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many instances. It pays to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels are steel lined for extra security. The models of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it might be better to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always opt to install the cat flap in an external wall of your home. This kind of installation is certainly better left to a professional, since it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to accomplish. You could choose a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled model which allows entry through a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will need to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A suitable cat flap is then attached to both ends of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Whaley Bridge - If your wall, window or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's not working, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the existing cavity. A professional Whaley Bridge cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old entry unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the window, door or wall on which it's attached.
If the new cat flap is going to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must check that the glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
