Cat Flap Fitter Horwich Greater Manchester (BL6): Installing a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Horwich home allows your cat the independence that it needs to live a happy life. When constantly kept inside, cats much like people, will get grouchy and irritated. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the benefits of giving your pet access to the world outside by way of a cat flap. If this seems like a good option for you, what style of cat flap should you opt for?
The most basic sort of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat move through. Naturally, this is really basic, and won't be good enough for most Horwich cat owners, who would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although it might be appropriate for a garden fence panel or shed door.
This basic design is still far from ideal because it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your home, however it can be improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to access or leave your house unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can still get into your property when using this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.
A model of cat flap which is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next level in feline entrance security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is nearby, only permitting access to pets that have a microchip.
When you're purchasing a cat flap, you must ensure that it is of a design that can be locked into position. Most cat flaps sold nowadays feature a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can permit admittance into your home only, enable only exit from your home, be locked fully, or be set for two way entry and exit. This gives you options for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap functions. In line with yours and your pet's needs, there's even the possibility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with some of the more advanced models.
If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, putting in your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a solid timber door on your Horwich home. But, if you are intending to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to ask for outside assistance. Such situations call for the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, who is certain to have have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN HORWICH
Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazed window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and give them their marching orders. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazing will be damaged by cutting or drilling into it, and will take away its strength, security and insulating attributes. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
A professional cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local glazing firm make a new one. As part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This can take one or two weeks to manufacture, but it is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have acquired your new pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new one fitted. The cat flap will then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, solid wood doors are the simplest alternative in relation to cat flap installation on your house in Horwich. If you are a bit uncertain about creating a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you might be better off hiring a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. A project like this is comparatively inexpensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your kitty will be climbing through an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. You'll need to determine what the interior structure of you door is, since for additional security certain uPVC door panels are made with a steel lining. A one-piece panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be less expensive to exchange this panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to have a cat flap installed into an exterior wall of your home in Horwich, if you do not want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, so it is certainly better left to a specialist. You could go with a straightforward tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled model that permits access via a pillar. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole neatly made into your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to allow your feline friend to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Horwich - If your window, wall or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it is not working, or is damaged, it is quite possible to fit a replacement into the existing cavity. A good cat flap installer in Horwich will efficiently remove your unwanted cat flap, and fix a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the door, window or wall.
If the new cat flap is going to be installed into a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must double check that the glass has been made and installed in the right way. The glass panel must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious that this is not the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
