Cat Flap Fitter Brackley Northamptonshire (NN13): Fitting a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your house in Brackley, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. When continuously kept indoors, cats as with humans, will get irritated and crabby. Allowing your pet accessibility to outside world with a cat flap can also help to keep them physically and mentally fit. So, you think it's a good idea, but precisely what is best type of cat flap for your pet?
The most fundamental style of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible bit of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but allow the cat climb through. The vast majority of cat owners in Brackley would doubtless prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although this could be appropriate for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This basic model is still far from perfect as it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to get into your home, however it can be improved on to some degree with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Subsequently, any animal without one of these special collars can't leave or access your house. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar style of collar can easily gain access to your house with this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.
Installing a cat flap which can be operated by your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in entrance devices for felines. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.
No matter what cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in place. The majority of cat flaps sold currently have a four way locking system. This allows your cat flap to enable only access into your property, permit exit from your house only, be locked fully, or have two-way exit and entry functionality. This gives you alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap operates. Based on your cat's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the more expensive models.
Installing a cat flap by yourself can be really simple if you've got a solid timber door, and reasonable do-it-yourself skills. But, if you're hoping to fit it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you must ask for outside assistance. This kind of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled handymen who are ready to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BRACKLEY
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulating properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.
A professional cat flap fitter will take the measurements of the existing double glazing pane and have a local glazing company make a new pane. As part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This may take a week or more to manufacture, however it's the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once your new glass pane arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap can then be mounted.
External Wooden Doors - The easiest alternative for new cat flap installations in Brackley, as was previously mentioned, are wood door panels. If you're unsure of cutting a hole in your front door, it's probably a good idea to call on an expert to undertake the project for you. This should provide you with the reassurance that you'll wind up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been carried out in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. However, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for further security, which could cause problems. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be more economical to exchange this panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to get a cat flap mounted into an outside wall of your home in Brackley, if you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it's certainly better left to the pros. You can choose a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled version which permits access via a pillar. A neat square hole will be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. A cat flap is then attached to both sides of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Brackley - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. An expert Brackley cat flap fitter will be glad to take off your old device and replace it with a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's attached.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazing pane that's been pre-cut, making certain that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed correctly is crucial. The glass will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues, if you discover that this isn't the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.
