Cat Flap Fitter Whitley Bay Tyne and Wear (NE25): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Whitley Bay home. Much like humans, when kept inside, cats will frequently start to show signs of frustration and unease. When your beloved cat is granted easy access to the world outside by means of a cat flap, there is a much better chance of it staying both physically and mentally healthy. If this seems like a good option for you, what type of cat flap should you put in?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat pass through it. Obviously, this is extremely basic, and will rarely adequate for most Whitley Bay cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although it could be okay for an outhouse or shed door.
This uncomplicated model can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it's still a long way from being perfect as it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter your house.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your property, thus preventing some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar will be able to access your property, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.
The next stage in feline access security is to use a model of cat flap which identifies your pet's micro-chip. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only permitting access to animals that have a micro-chip.
Being able to lock it in position is vital whichever cat flap you're purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold currently have a four way locking mechanism. This allows your cat flap to enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, enable entrance into your house only, or have two way entry and exit capability. This provides complete control over how your cat flap operates both during the day and throughout the night time. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the higher end models.
If you have a wood door on your property in Whitley Bay, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. Although, if it needs to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it by yourself. This sort of installation requires the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who will be happy to accept such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN WHITLEY BAY
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazing window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them the boot. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the insulating attributes too. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.
A trustworthy Whitley Bay cat flap installer will meticulously take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. This new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure where the cat flap will be installed. This could take a week or more to manufacture, however it's basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. When your new glass panel arrives, the installer will take out the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It will now be possible to install your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as I stated previously, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Whitley Bay. It's often wise to bring in a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all uncomfortable with making a hole in your front or back door. A project of this sort is fairly inexpensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your pet can enjoy a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. You will need to ascertain what the interior construction of you door is, since for extra security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type panel, it might be easier to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always elect to install a cat flap in an exterior wall of your home in Whitley Bay. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a bit more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely better left to an expert. You could opt for a straight-through tunnel design, or even a right angle version which allows entry via a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will need to be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to allow your furry friend to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Whitley Bay - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be used for a replacement providing that the new flap is of a comparable size. A decent cat flap fitter in Whitley Bay will efficiently remove your unwanted cat flap, and fix a brand new one in its place without harming the surrounding window, wall or door.
If the new cat flap is going to be installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make sure that the glass has been made and installed in the right way. The glass panel must be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
