Cat Flap Fitter Llandudno Wales (LL30): To provide your cat with the independence it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Llandudno home. Cats tend to get crabby and irritated when kept indoors, and not able to roam. Having easy access to outside world via a cat flap will help your furry friend to stay fit, both mentally and physically. If this sounds like a good idea to you, exactly what form of cat flap should you put in?
The most basic form of cat flap, is merely that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. Obviously, this is extremely basic, and will not be sufficient for most Llandudno cat owners, who would favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property, although it could be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.
This standard model can be slightly improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it's still far from ideal as it enables other creatures or cats to enter into your house.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar can easily get into your house, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The kind of cat flap that's can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next level in feline entry security. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked whenever your cat is in close proximity, only permitting exit or entry to animals that are microchipped.
Regardless which cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in position. Most cat flaps sold these days have a 4-way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can enable only exit from your home, be locked fully, allow entry into your home only, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This offers you a variety of choices on exactly how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night time. In keeping with yours and your cat's needs, there is even the possibility to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the top-end devices.
If you've got a wood door in your house in Llandudno, putting in you own cat flap should not be too difficult. But, if you are planning to fit it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you ought to ask for outside help. This kind of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented odd job men who are ready to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN LLANDUDNO
Double Glazing Installation - If you hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. It's just not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the insulating attributes as well. In actual fact, it makes the glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new purpose made one. So that the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, even though it can take a couple of weeks to manufacture. As soon as your new glass pane is delivered, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. The installing of your cat flap will then be completed.
External Wooden Doors - The simplest option for cat flap installations in Llandudno, as was previously mentioned, are timber doors. If you are somewhat uncertain about creating an opening in your back or front door, you might be better off getting in touch with a professional handyman or cat flap fitter instead. This kind of undertaking won't be too costly and is worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It pays to know the interior construction, because some uPVC door panels can have a steel lining for extra security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it might be easier to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could elect to install a cat flap on an external wall of your property in Llandudno. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it is certainly better left to an expert. Most cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnel style, but right angle access through a pillar is also possible. This installation involves a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. A suitable cat flap is then installed on both sides of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Llandudno - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your wall, window or door, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. An experienced Llandudno cat flap fitter will gladly take off your old entry unit and replace it with a new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it is attached.
Before installing a new flap in a double glazing panel which has been pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been fabricated, cut and installed in the right way is essential. The panel will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious that this is not the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.
