Cat Flap Fitter Hoyland South Yorkshire (S74): To give your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Hoyland house. Cats which are kept indoors, much like humans, will often show signs of irritation. Giving your furry friend access to the world outside via a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. So, you think it's a good idea, but exactly what is perfect style of cat flap for your pet?
The most rudimentry style of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is hung over it to give a bit of protection from the weather. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely adequate for most Hoyland cat owners, who would doubtless favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although it might be acceptable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This uncomplicated model is still far from ideal as it allows other cats or animals to get into your property, nonetheless it can be improved on by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and leave or access your property, hence avoiding some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar model of collar could perchance access your house. An improvement to this product is an RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.
Fitting a cat flap that can identify your pet's microchip, is the next level in access gadgets for felines in Hoyland. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.
The ability to lock it in position is vital regardless of what cat flap you are buying. Nowadays, most cat flaps on the market have a four way locking system for added flexibility. Which means it has the capability to allow exit from your premises only, be locked fully, permit only access into your house, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This gives you alternatives for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap operates. In keeping with your pet's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with several of the high end models.
If you've got a wood door in your home in Hoyland, installing you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. But, if you are hoping to fit it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should ask for outside help. This sort of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who will be ready to take on such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN HOYLAND
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling holes in any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, as well as its insulation properties. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazed unit and have a glazing firm make a new one. As a part of its construction this new glazed pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This is the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a week or so to produce. After fabrication, your old glass can be removed, and the new one put in. The cat flap will then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wood doors are, as we stated previously, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Hoyland. If you're dubious about making a hole in your front or back door, it's advisable to call in a professional to do the work for you. This kind of project is relatively inexpensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will have the use of an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. Having said that, some uPVC doors have got a steel lining for further security, which may cause some issues. The simplest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to have a cat flap installed on an outside wall of your property in Hoyland, if you don't want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons. Calling for a lot more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is certainly best left to a professional, if it is to be executed successfully. Almost all cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnel style, however right angular access via a pillar is also a possibility. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut into your wall. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit your house whenever it wants.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Hoyland - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating properly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement as long as the new cat flap is of a similar size. A reputable cat flap installer in Hoyland will efficiently remove the old cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without damaging the surrounding door, wall or window.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed pane which has been pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made and installed in the right way is essential. The pane will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
