Cat Flap Fitter Hoyland South Yorkshire (S74): Installing a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Hoyland property provides your cat with the independence it needs to live a happy life. Cats which are kept inside, much like humans, will often show signs of irritation. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your furry friend easy access to world outside by way of a cat flap. So, you're sold on the idea, but what is perfect style of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most fundamental form of cat flap, is just that. A bit of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. While this may be acceptable in an outhouse or shed door, the vast majority of Hoyland cat owners would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their house.
This simple model can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other cats or animals to enter your house.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your home, thus keeping out some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar could perchance get into your house, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.
The next level in feline entry security is to fit the kind of cat flap which identifies your cat's own microchip. The microchip details are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one cat). When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your microchipped pets to enter or exit.
The ability to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you're buying. For extra flexibility, almost all cat flaps boast a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it's got the capability to allow exit only, be locked fully, enable only entrance into your premises, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This gives you a range of options on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. A few more advanced models can be programmed to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's requirements.
Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be really straightforward if you have a solid timber door, and decent do-it-yourself capabilities. But, if you are intending to fit it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should seek outside assistance. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or odd job man, who'll have the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN HOYLAND
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Cutting or drilling into any sort of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its insulation attributes. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.
A professional cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazing pane and have a local Hoyland glazing company make a new pane. So that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new glazed pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. This is the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take a couple of weeks to manufacture. As soon as your new glass panel shows up, the installer will remove the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of the cat flap will then be concluded.
External Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for new cat flap installations in Hoyland, as was stated earlier in this article, are wood door panels. If you're somewhat uncertain about making an opening in your back or front door, you might be better off hiring an experienced handyman or cat flap fitter instead. This type of task won't be too expensive and is worthwhile doing properly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, because some door panels are lined with steel for extra security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could opt to install your cat flap into an external wall of your home. Calling for a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly better left to the pros, if it is to be completed successfully. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angled access via a pillar is also possible. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square hole neatly made into your wall. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to permit your furry friend to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Hoyland - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a window, door or wall, but it is broken or not working properly, the existing hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a new one. A competent cat flap installer in Hoyland will efficiently remove the unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one in its place without damaging the surrounding door, wall or window.
If the new cat flap is to be fitted in a pre cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must check that the glass has been made and installed accurately. The glass must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues, if it becomes obvious that this is not the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.
