Whetstone Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Whetstone Leicestershire (LE8): Installing a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Whetstone house provides your cat with the independence it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats which are kept inside, just like humans, will show signs of irritability. When granted quick access to the world outside with a cat flap, your pet has a better chance of staying healthy and well. However, what sort of cat flap is most suitable for your situation?

The most straightforward form of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in an external door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to offer a bit of protection from the weather. While this might be appropriate in an outhouse or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Whetstone would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property.

This standard design can be improved on slightly with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it's still a long way from being perfect since it enables other creatures or cats to enter your property.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars can't leave or access your property. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, as any other cat in the area that has a similar model of collar may be able to get into your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products because they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

Having a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits solely your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

Being able to lock it in place is important whichever cat flap you're purchasing. Most cat flaps sold nowadays feature a four way locking system. This allows your cat flap to enable only entry into your premises, enable only exit from your home, be locked fully, or have two way exit and entrance functionality. This will give you solutions for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap operates. The ability to carry out different 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 more expensive models of cat flap.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you have a timber door on your Whetstone home. On no account should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or odd job man, who will have the equipment and knowledge for this type of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its thermal insulation attributes, strength and security. In fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it should never be done.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Whetstone cat flap fitter will measure your existing panel and put in an order for the new one. This new glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap can be installed. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this special pane to be manufactured, however if you need a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you have received your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit installed. The fitting of the cat flap can then be completed.

External Wooden Doors - Solid timber door panels are, as I stated previously, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Whetstone. If you are unsure of making a hole in your door, it's it may be better to bring in a professional to do the work for you. This sort of project won't be all that expensive and is worthwhile doing properly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - It is quite feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. Nevertheless, certain uPVC door panels are lined with steel for added security, which can cause some issues. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always opt to install the cat flap on an external wall of your house in Whetstone. This kind of installment is definitely best left to a specialist, since it calls for far more equipment and skill to execute. You could opt for a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angle version which enables access via a pillar. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole neatly made into your selected wall. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so that your cat can enter and exit your house whenever it wants.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Whetstone - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a window, wall or door, but it's broken or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. A trusted cat flap fitter in Whetstone will be able to remove your unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door.

If the substitute cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make certain that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way. If it is found that this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the panel will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
