Cat Flap Fitter Barry Wales (CF62): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your property in Barry, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats kept indoors, much like people, will often show signs of irritability. Having accessibility to outside world via a cat flap will help your furry friend to remain fit, both physically and mentally. But, what style of cat flap is the best solution for your circumstances?
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to give protection from the weather. While this could be appropriate in a garden fence panel or outhouse door, the majority of cat owners in Barry would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property.
Because this solution can allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a little by keeping the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.
Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your home unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a fairly basic kind of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can still access your house. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.
The kind of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in Barry feline entrance security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one cat it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
When you're buying a cat flap, you should make sure that it's of a type that can be locked. For added security, most cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable admission into your house only, enable exit from your property only, or have 2-way exit and entrance functionality. This gives you solutions for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap functions. Some more expensive devices can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, based on yours and your cat's requirements.
If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your house in Barry. However, if it has to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt it by yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who is sure to have have the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BARRY
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them packing immediately. New cat flaps can not be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Drilling holes in any kind of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its thermal attributes. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.
A specialist cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local Barry glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a week or more to produce. Once you've taken possession of your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. Your cat flap can then be installed.
External Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as we mentioned above, the easiest options for cat flap installation in Barry. If you're somewhat dubious about creating an opening in your front or back door, you might be better off getting in touch with a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This will give you the peace of mind that you will end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been accomplished in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nevertheless, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for extra security, which might cause problems. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap mounted into an external wall of your property in Barry, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. Needing much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is definitely better left to the pros, if it's to be executed correctly. There are a number of choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole made into your wall. A suitable cat flap can then be installed on each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Barry - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it is broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap installer will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, window or wall, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazing panel which has been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way is essential. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the glass will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.
