Cats that are kept inside, just like humans, can often show signs of irritability. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your furry friend access to the world outside by means of . So, you are sold on the idea, but which is perfect kind of cat flap for your pet?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to offer some protection from the weather. Of course, this is very basic, and will rarely sufficient for most cat owners in Fazeley, who would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although it might be okay for a shed or outhouse door.
This simple design is still a long way from being perfect because it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter into your house, but it can be improved on to some degree by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your house unless it is equipped with this special collar. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Fazeley area who has a similar style of collar can easily gain access to your home with this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.
Choosing a cat flap that can identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry security for felines. The details of your cat's micro-chip are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one pet). The flap will be unfastened whenever your cat is close-by, only permitting exit or entry to animals that are microchipped.
Whenever you're buying a cat flap, you must make certain it is of a type that can be locked. The majority of cat flaps sold today boast a 4-way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, permit exit from your premises only, enable only access into your home, or have two way exit and entrance capability. This offers you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. Some more advanced cat flaps can be programmed to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your needs.
Fitting a cat flap yourself can be pretty simple if you have a solid wood door on your Fazeley home, and reasonable do-it-yourself abilities. Under no circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. These types of fixtures require a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN FAZELEY
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps can not be mounted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its strength, thermal insulation attributes and security. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
A professional cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a local Fazeley glazing firm knock up a new pane. So the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. You might have a one or two week wait for this to be made, however if you need a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. Once you've taken possession of your new glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. The cat flap will then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for cat flap installations in Fazeley, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are wood door panels. If you are a bit unsure about cutting a hole in your back or front door, you may be happier getting in touch with an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This will give you the reassurance that you are going to finish up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most cases. You will have to establish what the interior structure of you door is, since for additional security certain uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be easier to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could decide to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your home. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for considerably more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely best left to a specialist. You'll find there are several options for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) configuration. A neat square shaped hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to permit your furry friend to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Fazeley - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a wall, door or window, but it's damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for installing a replacement. Your cat flap installer should be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding wall, window or door, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is going to be mounted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must check that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. The glass will have to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
