Cat Flap Fitter Wistaston Cheshire (CW2): A simple way to give your cat more independence and enrich it's overally quality of life is to install a cat flap on an outside door or wall of your house in Wistaston. Cats that are kept inside, much like people, can often show signs of frustration. Having accessibility to world outside by way of will help your cat to keep fit, both physically and mentally. Obviously, that isn't the end of the story, since there are numerous types of cat flaps, and determining which design is best for you and your cat is not always that easy.
The simplest style of cat flap is essentially that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to give protection from the weather, but permit the cat move through. Naturally, this is very basic, and won't be sufficient for most Wistaston cat owners, who would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although it could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.
This simple model can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other cats or animals a means by which to get into your home.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased within it. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your house unless it's equipped with this special collar. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the area that has a similar collar can easily get into your home. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next step-up in feline entrance security is to install a cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Being able to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps have a four way locking system nowadays. Which means it's got the capability to allow exit from your property only, permit only admittance into your home, be fully locked, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers complete control over how your cat flap functions both throughout the day and during the night time. Some of the more expensive cat flaps can be set to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your requirements.
If you are pretty good at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, as long as you've got a solid wood door on your house in Wistaston. However, if it needs to be installed in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should on no account even attempt it on your own. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN WISTASTON
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, send them packing immediately. New cat flaps can not be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any kind of double glazed unit will be damaged by cutting into it, and will damage its security, strength and insulating attributes. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted in any circumstances.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local Wistaston glazing company knock up a new purpose made one. This new panel will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure where your cat flap will be fitted. You may have to wait a couple of weeks for this pane to be produced, but if you want a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. When your new pane of glass shows up, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. Your cat flap can then be put in.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, timber door panels are the easiest alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your property in Wistaston. It is generally advisable to employ the expert services of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, if you're dubious about creating a big hole in your front or back door. This should provide you with the peace of mind that you'll wind up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the job has been done correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. However, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security, which might cause problems. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed on an external wall. This form of installment is undoubtedly better left to a professional, as it calls for far more equipment and skill to execute. You will find there are a number of choices for this sort of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angle (through pillar) configuration. A square hole will have to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at both ends to enable your cat to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Wistaston - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a wall, door or window, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. An experienced Wistaston cat flap installer will gladly take out your old unit and replace it with a new cat flap without causing any damage to the door, wall or window on which it's secured.
Before installing a new flap in a double glazed panel that's been pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed in the right way is essential. If it is found this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
