Cat Flap Fitter Holmfirth West Yorkshire (HD9): To allow your cat the independence that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Holmfirth home. Cats that are kept inside, much like people, can show signs of irritability. Allowing your cat accessibility to world outside by way of a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. If this seems like a good option for you, what sort of cat flap should you install?
The most rudimentry form of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in a door and a flexible material is hung over the gap to give a bit of protection from the elements. The vast majority of Holmfirth cat owners would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house, although this could be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.
Because this solution allows other creatures or cats to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got a special collar can't leave or access your property. The reality that any other cat in the area who's got a similar style of collar may be able to access your home, is the downside with this type of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.
The kind of cat flap that's can be operated by your pet's own microchip, is the next stage in feline entrance security. The micro-chip number is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is close by.
No matter which cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. For extra flexibility, most cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism nowadays. This allows your cat flap to enable only access into your house, enable exit only, be locked fully, or have 2-way exit and entrance functionality. This offers you a number of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. A few higher end devices can be set to perform particular functions according to the time of day, in line with your pet's and your needs.
Installing a cat flap by yourself can be pretty easy if you've got a solid timber door, and reasonable DIY abilities. But, if you're looking to fit it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you must seek outside help. This type of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented odd job men who will be delighted to accept such work.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN HOLMFIRTH
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulation attributes too. Actually, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.
A professional cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a local Holmfirth glazing company make a new purpose made one. As part of its structure this new double glazing pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This may take one or two weeks to manufacture, but it's the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, the old glass unit will be removed, and the new adapted one put in. It will now be possible to install the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as we stated previously, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Holmfirth. If you are uncomfortable with making a hole in your door, it's advisable to call in an expert to undertake the project for you. This will give you the reassurance that you will end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been accomplished correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the internal construction, as some uPVC doors are lined with steel for additional security. The models of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could elect to install the cat flap on an external wall of your house in Holmfirth. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires considerably more equipment and skill to install, so it is definitely best left to a professional. You can opt for a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angle model that allows entry via a pillar. A square shaped hole will need to be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to enable your feline friend to come in and out as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Holmfirth - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can still be used providing the new cat flap is of a similar size. Your cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the window, door or wall, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When the cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be necessary to make sure that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new cat flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel must be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
