Cat Flap Fitter Newport Wales (NP10): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Newport house. Cats are inclined to get grumpy and irritated when constantly kept inside, and not allowed to roam. Having access to the world outside via a cat flap will help your cat to stay fit, both physically and mentally. If this seems like a good idea to you, precisely what type of cat flap should you opt for?
A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A bit of flexible material fixed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. The majority of Newport cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property, although this may be acceptable for an outhouse or shed door.
This standard design can be somewhat improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it's still a long way from being ideal since it enables other cats or creatures a means by which to get into your home.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and leave or access your home, thus keeping out some undesirable visitors. Again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Newport area that's got a similar collar can still get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next stage in feline entry security is to choose the kind of cat flap that recognises your cat's micro-chip. The microchip number is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). Entry and exit are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is nearby.
The ability to lock it in position is important whichever cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold currently have a four way locking system. Which means that it's got the capability to be locked fully, enable exit from your house only, permit admission into your premises only, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This gives you options for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap works. The ability to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your needs is also an option with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
Installing a cat flap yourself can be really straightforward if you have a solid wood door, and respectable DIY abilities. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN NEWPORT
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap is going to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its thermal insulation attributes, strength and security. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsound.
A professional cat flap installer will take measurements of the existing double glazing unit and have a glazing company make a new purpose made pane. So that the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. You might have to wait a week or two for this pane to be produced, but if you want a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've acquired your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to install your cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we mentioned above, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Newport. If you are nervous about making a hole in your back or front door, it's advisable to call a professional to complete the task for you. This kind of project won't be too expensive and is worthwhile doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some doors can have a steel lining for additional security. A one-piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to replace the panel with a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut a hole in your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an external wall. This kind of installment is certainly better left to an expert, since it requires considerably more skill and equipment to accomplish. There are a number of choices for this kind of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. Installation involves a neat square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap is then mounted on each end of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Newport - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is quite possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. A competent cat flap fitter in Newport will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without damaging the door, wall or window.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is essential to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new cat flap. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
