Cat Flap Fitter Gainsborough Lincolnshire (DN21): To give your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Gainsborough property. When kept indoors, cats just like people, will get grumpy and irritated. Allowing your furry friend easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. If this seems like a good option for you, exactly what type of cat flap should you install?
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A bit of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to allow a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. Though this could be acceptable for an outhouse or shed door, most cat owners in Gainsborough would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house.
Since this option permits other animals or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be enhanced somewhat by keeping the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.
Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. Therefore any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars cannot leave or access your house. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the area that has a similar model of collar can access your property with this kind of cat flap installed. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices as they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
The next level in feline entry security is to use a cat flap that identifies your cat's micro-chip. You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to use the entrance/exit.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure it's of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold nowadays boast a 4-way locking system. This means that the cat flap can allow only exit from your home, permit only admittance into your premises, be locked fully, or be set for two way exit and entry. This will give you a range of choices on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. Some more advanced devices can be programmed to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, based on yours and your pet's requirements.
Fitting a cat flap yourself can be really simple if you've got a solid wood door, and reasonable do-it-yourself skills. But, if you're planning to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should ask for outside assistance. These situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have all the equipment and knowledge for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN GAINSBOROUGH
Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps can't be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Drilling or cutting into any sort of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, together with its insulating attributes. Actually, it renders the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.
A reputable Gainsborough cat flap fitter will carefully get the dimensions of your current pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. This new pane will have a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this special pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap installed in an existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. After construction, the old glass can be taken out, and the new one put in its place. The installing of your cat flap will then be carried out.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as we stated earlier, the simplest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Gainsborough. If you are hesitant about making a hole in your front or back door, it's advisable to bring in an expert to do the job for you. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken properly.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your fitter will need to establish what the internal construction of you door is, since for added security certain uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not really want to have a hole cut in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an external wall. This type of installation is definitely better left to a specialist, since it calls for much more skill and equipment to accomplish. There are several possibilities for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) style. Installation involves a square hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap is then attached to both ends of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Gainsborough - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a door, window or wall, but it is broken or not operating correctly, the current hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a replacement. A competent cat flap fitter in Gainsborough will be capable of removing the old cat flap, and fit a new one in its place without causing damage to the wall, window or door.
Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed pane which has been pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been made, cut and installed in the right way is vital. If it's found this is not the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass panel must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues.
