Cat Flap Fitter Wombourne Staffordshire (WV5): To allow your cat the freedom and independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Wombourne home. Cats kept inside, much like humans, can show signs of frustration. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your pet accessibility to outside world via a cat flap. However, what type of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The simplest sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is placed over it to offer a bit of protection from the elements. Though this might be suitable for a fence panel or shed door, the vast majority of cat owners in Wombourne would doubtless prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.
This simple model is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other creatures or cats a way to get into your home, but it can be slightly improved upon by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it is equipped with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar can gain access to your home when using this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap which is can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next stage in Wombourne feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. The flap will be unlocked when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a microchip.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must ensure that it's of a type that can be locked into position. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps boast a four way locking system nowadays. Which means it's got the capability to enable only entry into your home, be fully locked, permit exit only, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This will give you solutions for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap operates. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the possibility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the higher end devices.
Fitting a cat flap on your own can be pretty straightforward if you've got a solid wood door, and decent do-it-yourself skills. Although, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should on no account even attempt to tackle it yourself. This sort of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who'll be glad to undertake such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WOMBOURNE
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and give them their marching orders. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be attempted in any circumstances whatsoever.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Wombourne cat flap installer will measure your current unit and put in an order for the new one. To ensure that the cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new glazed unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. You may have a one or two week wait for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've taken possession of your new panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. It's now possible to install and set up the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as I already mentioned, the easiest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Wombourne. If you are dubious about creating a hole in your front or back door, it's probably a good idea to bring in a specialist to complete the task for you. An undertaking like this should not be expensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your pet will be using a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. Nonetheless, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for added security, which could cause problems. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it may be better to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could elect to install your cat flap on an exterior wall of your house in Wombourne. Requiring much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a professional, if it is to be completed successfully. Nearly all wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnel style, but right angle access via a pillar is also possible. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut out of your specified wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to enable your furry friend to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Wombourne - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working correctly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of a comparable size. An expert Wombourne cat flap fitter will be glad to take off your old entry unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any damage to the wall, door or window on which it is attached.
Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that has been pre-cut, checking that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately is essential. The glass panel must be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
