Cat Flap Fitter Royton Greater Manchester (OL2): The installation of a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your home in Royton, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. When continuously kept inside, cats just like people, will get crabby and irritated. Giving your furry friend access to the outside world via a cat flap can help to keep them physically and mentally fit. So, you're sold on the idea, but which is best kind of cat flap for your pet?
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A piece of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. Even though this could be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Royton would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property.
This standard model is still far from ideal as it allows other animals or cats to get into your home, nevertheless it can be improved on a little by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased inside it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will not be able to open the flap and access or leave your property, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar may be able to access your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these devices because they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
The next level in feline entry security is to consider the kind of cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's micro-chip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap will be unfastened when your cat is close-by, only permitting entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
The ability to lock it in position is vital regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold these days boast a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can be fully locked, allow access into your property only, enable only exit from your home, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This gives you a variety of options on precisely how your cat flap works any time of the day and night time. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there is even the possibility to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the more advanced models.
If you've got a wood door in your home in Royton, putting in a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. However, if it needs to be installed into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't even attempt it by yourself. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled handymen who'll be delighted to undertake such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ROYTON
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the insulation attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A dependable Royton cat flap installer will carefully take the measurements of your current pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. So that the cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new double glazed unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take a week or more to produce. Once you have taken possession of your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new one fitted. Your cat flap can then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, wood door panels are the easiest option when it comes to cat flap installation on your home in Royton. If you're somewhat uncertain about creating an opening in your front or back door, you might be better off bringing in an expert carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This sort of project will not be all that expensive and is worth doing properly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, as some doors incorporate a steel lining for extra security. The simplest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - It is also feasible to have a cat flap mounted on an external wall of your property in Royton, if you don't want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. This type of installation is certainly best left to an expert, as it requires much more equipment and skill to accomplish. There are several options for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) style. This installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to allow your feline friend to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Royton - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it is possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A reputable cat flap installer in Royton will be able to remove your unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be necessary to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
