Cat Flap Fitter Aberystwyth Wales (SY23): To give your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Aberystwyth house. When constantly kept inside, cats just like humans, will get grouchy and irritated. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your cat easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is perfect kind of cat flap for your pet?
The most straightforward type of cat flap, is just that. A sheet of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely adequate for most cat owners in Aberystwyth, who would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house, although it could be okay for a garden fence panel or shed door.
Because this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your property, it is not at all ideal, although it can be improved on to some extent by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.
A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the area who has a similar style of collar may be able to gain access to your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap that's can be triggered by your cat's own microchip, is the next level in Aberystwyth feline access security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.
No matter which cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in position. For extra security, most cat flaps boast a 4-way locking system these days. Which means that the cat flap can enable exit from your property only, be locked fully, allow only access into your premises, or be set for two way entry and exit. This offers full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. In line with yours and your cat's needs, there's even the option to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the more expensive models.
If you're pretty decent at DIY, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, as long as you've got a wooden door on your Aberystwyth home. However, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should on no account even attempt to tackle it on your own. Such situations require the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is sure to have have the knowledge and equipment for this sort of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ABERYSTWYTH
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed window or door panel, and your appointed "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the work right away and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing damages not simply the security and strength of the panel, but it takes away the insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazing unit and have a local Aberystwyth glazing company knock up a new one. This new panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction where your cat flap will be installed. You might have a one or two week wait for this special pane to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you have taken possession of your new adapted glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new panel fitted. The fitting of the cat flap will then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for installing a new cat flap in Aberystwyth, as was mentioned previously, are wood doors. If you are a little hesitant about creating a sizeable hole in your front door, you might be better off hiring a professional handyman or cat flap fitter instead. A project like this is relatively inexpensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your pet has an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your fitter will need to establish what the interior construction of you door actually is, because for additional security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The models of door with a one piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type panel, it might be better to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could choose to install the cat flap into an outside wall of your house. Requiring much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap install is certainly best left to a professional, if it is to be executed correctly. You can opt for a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angle model that allows access through a pillar. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole cut into your wall. A suitable cat flap is then installed on each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Aberystwyth - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your door, window or wall, but it is broken or not functioning correctly, the existing hole can hopefully be re-used for the installation of a new one. An expert Aberystwyth cat flap installer will gladly remove your old device and replace it with a new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the wall, window or door on which it's mounted.
Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing panel that has been previously pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is essential. The panel will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues, if it's found that this is not the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
