Cat Flap Fitter Rothwell West Yorkshire (NN14): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your house in Rothwell, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats which are kept indoors, as with humans, will often show signs of irritability. Having accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap will help your cat to stay fit, both physically and mentally. But, what type of cat flap is best in your case?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is fixed over it to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. Although this might be suitable in a garden fence panel or outhouse door, most Rothwell cat owners would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property.
This uncomplicated model is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your house, however it can be improved upon by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, therefore keeping out some undesirable visitors. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar can gain access to your home with this type of cat flap fitted. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
The type of cat flap which is can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in Rothwell feline entry security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only allowing entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.
The ability to lock it in position is essential whichever cat flap you are buying. For extra flexibility, most cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism nowadays. This means that it has the capability to permit only admittance into your house, be fully locked, allow exit from your home only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This provides you with options for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap functions. In keeping with your pet's and your needs, there's even the possibility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with some of the high end devices.
If you've got a wood door on your home in Rothwell, installing you own cat flap should not be that hard. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have all the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN ROTHWELL
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the insulating properties as well. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.
A professional cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazed unit and have a glazing firm make a new pane. This new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction where your cat flap will be installed. You may have to wait a week or so for this to be produced, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've taken possession of your new pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new one installed. It will now be possible to fit your new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, solid timber doors are the easiest alternative in relation to installing a new cat flap on your property in Rothwell. If you are a bit nervous about making a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you might be happier contacting a professional cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This kind of task won't be too expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap expertly installed gives you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, since some door panels are lined with steel for extra security. The easiest type of installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not really want to have a hole cut in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. Needing much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a professional, if it's to be executed correctly. You will find there are a couple of options for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) pattern. Installation entails a square hole being cut through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at both ends to enable your feline friend to come and go as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Rothwell - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a door, window or wall, but it's broken or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for installing a new one. Your cat flap fitter will take off the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the door, wall or window, and install a brand new flap for your cat.
Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazed panel that's been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been cut and installed accurately is crucial. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the panel will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
