Cat Flap Fitter Yeadon West Yorkshire (LS19): A great way to improve your cat's independence and enrich it's overally quality of life is to fit a cat flap on an outside door or wall of your house in Yeadon. Cats are just like people in a lot of ways, and will frequently show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for significant periods of time. Having easy access to outside world by way of a cat flap will help your cat to keep fit, both mentally and physically. If you choose to go down the cat flap route, you'll then have to decide what is the best type of cat flap for you.
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. Most cat owners in Yeadon would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although this may be okay for a shed or outhouse door.
This uncomplicated design can be slightly improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter your property.
Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal will be able to leave or get into your house unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The downside is that any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar can still access your home with this type of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment as they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The next level in feline access security is to install a model of cat flap which identifies your cat's own micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.
Whenever you're buying a cat flap, you should ensure that it is of a type that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold today boast a 4-way locking system. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable only exit from your home, enable only entry into your house, or have two way exit and entry capability. This offers total control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the night time. A few of the more expensive models can be programmed to perform particular functions according to the time of day, based on your cat's and your needs.
Putting in a cat flap yourself can be really straightforward if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable DIY abilities. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. Such situations require the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have the equipment and knowledge for this type of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN YEADON
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave. New cat flaps cannot be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Any kind of double glazing will be damaged by cutting into it, and will damage its security, strength and insulating attributes. In fact, it makes your glazing unsound and it should never be done.
It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Yeadon cat flap fitter will measure your current unit and put in an order for a brand new one. This new pane will arrive with a hole cut out as part of its structure where your cat flap will be installed. You may have a 1 or 2 week wait for this pane to be made, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. Once you have acquired your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new pane fitted. It's now possible to fit the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as I mentioned above, the simplest options for new cat flap installation in Yeadon. If you are hesitant about cutting a hole in your front or back door, it's a good move to bring in an expert to do the work for you. This should provide you with the peace of mind that you'll finish up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the project has been carried out in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC doors are steel lined for added security. A one piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be more economical to exchange this panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - It is also possible to have a cat flap installed on an external wall of your property in Yeadon, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons. This form of installment is undoubtedly better left to the pros, because it requires a lot more skill and equipment to accomplish. You'll find there are several options for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angle (through pillar) style. Installation entails a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. A cat flap can then be attached to both sides of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Yeadon - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working correctly, the current hole in your wall, door or window can be used for a replacement so long as the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap installer will take off the old cat flap, without harming the wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is essential to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new flap. The glass panel must be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues, if it's found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
