Cat Flap Fitter Burslem Staffordshire (ST5): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Burslem home gives your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats kept inside, much like humans, will often show signs of irritability. Having easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap will help your cat to stay fit, both mentally and physically. So, you're sold on the idea, but precisely what is best sort of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is essentially that. A piece of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. While this may be appropriate in an outhouse door or fence panel, most cat owners in Burslem would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house.
This basic model can be improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it is still far from ideal since it allows other creatures or cats a way to get into your home.
The next step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your home, thus avoiding some unwelcome visitors. The drawback is that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar may be able to gain access to your home when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.
The type of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's own micro-chip, is the next stage in feline access security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and permit just your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.
No matter what cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in position. Currently, the majority of cat flaps on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, permit exit only, permit only entry into your property, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This will give you a range of solutions on how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the possibility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with a few of the higher end devices.
If you have a wood door in your home in Burslem, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. On no account should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented carpenters who are ready to accept such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BURSLEM
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be fitted into existing double glazing window or door panels. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by cutting into it, and will diminish its strength, thermal insulation properties and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazing pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new purpose made one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or more to manufacture. Once you've obtained your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. The fitting of the cat flap can then be carried out.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, timber door panels are the least complicated option in relation to cat flap installation on your property in Burslem. It's usually advisable to call on a specialist cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are nervous about creating a big hole in your door. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you'll finish up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most instances. It is necessary to know the internal construction, because some door panels are lined with steel for additional security. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to get a cat flap mounted in an external wall of your home in Burslem, if you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more expertise and equipment to install, so it is certainly better left to an expert. You could go with a straight-through tunnel design, or even a right angle model which allows access through a pillar. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole cut into your wall. A suitable cat flap is then installed on both sides of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Burslem - If your door, window or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the existing cavity. A reliable cat flap installer in Burslem will efficiently remove the old cat flap, and fix a new one in its place without harming the surrounding wall, window or door.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is necessary to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the panel will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
