Cat Flap Fitter Wilmslow Cheshire (SK9): To allow your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Wilmslow home. When kept inside, cats as with humans, will get irritated and grouchy. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your cat easy access to world outside with a cat flap. However, what type of cat flap is better for your circumstances?
The most fundamental sort of cat flap, is just that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. Obviously, this is really basic, and will rarely adequate for most Wilmslow cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although it could be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
As this solution allows other cats or creatures to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, although it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or access your home. The downside is that any other moggy in the Wilmslow area that's got a similar style of collar might be able to access your property with this kind of cat flap installed. An enhancement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.
Installing a cat flap that can identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in access gadgets for felines in Wilmslow. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to enter/exit.
No matter which cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in place. These days, nearly all cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can permit only exit from your home, be fully locked, allow only entrance into your house, or be set for two way entry and exit. This gives complete control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. A few more advanced cat flaps can be programmed to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your pet's and your requirements.
If you are pretty good at DIY, putting in your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, as long as you've got a timber door on your Wilmslow home. But, if you're hoping to fit it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you must ask for outside help. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WILMSLOW
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be installed into existing double glazed window or door panels. Cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, along with its insulation attributes. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Wilmslow cat flap fitter will measure your existing pane and order 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 fitted. This could take one or two weeks to produce, but it's basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. When your new panel of glass is delivered, the fitter will take out the old unit, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It's now possible to fit the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, timber doors are the simplest option in relation to installing a new cat flap on your home in Wilmslow. If you are unsure of making a hole in your front door, it's a good move to contact a professional to undertake the project for you. This kind of project won't be all that expensive and is worthwhile doing correctly, if having your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be fitted into uPVC doors. However, certain uPVC doors have got a steel lining for extra security, which may cause some problems. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slatted pane for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always opt to install your cat flap into an external wall of your home in Wilmslow. Needing far more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is definitely better left to a specialist, if it is to be completed correctly. You will find there are a number of options for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angular (through pillar) style. A neat square hole will be made through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap is then mounted on each side of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Wilmslow - If your window, wall or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. Your cat flap installer will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
If the new cat flap is going to be installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must check that the existing glass has been cut and installed correctly. If you discover that this is not the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the pane must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues.
