Cat Flap Fitter Sleaford Lincolnshire (NG34): The installation of a cat flap to an external door or wall in your house in Sleaford, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when kept indoors, and not able to roam free. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your cat access to the outside world via a cat flap. So, you think it's a great idea, but precisely what is best form of cat flap for your precious pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A piece of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. The vast majority of Sleaford cat owners would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although this may be okay for an outhouse or shed door.
This basic model is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your home, but it can be somewhat improved upon by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your house unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The drawback is that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your property when using this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
Picking a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in entry security for felines in Sleaford. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one pet it will take multiple entries. The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that are microchipped.
Being able to lock it in position is essential regardless which cat flap you're purchasing. For added security, almost all cat flaps have a four way locking system nowadays. Which means that it has the capability to be fully locked, enable admission into your house only, allow exit from your home only, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This will give you a range of options on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. The facility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the top-end models of cat flap.
If you've got a wooden door on your property in Sleaford, putting in you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. However, if it needs to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should not even attempt it on your own. These types of fittings call for a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap fitter or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN SLEAFORD
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any kind of double glazing will be ruined by drilling or cutting into it, and will take away its security, thermal insulation properties and strength. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be attempted in any circumstances.
A dependable Sleaford cat flap fitter will diligently measure up your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. As an integral part of its structure this new double glazing pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This can take a week or two to produce, but it's really the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new pane of glass is delivered, the installer will remove the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. Your cat flap can then be installed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, solid wood door panels are the easiest option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your home in Sleaford. If you are somewhat unsure about creating a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be better off getting in touch with a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should give you the reassurance that you will wind up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the job has been accomplished correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for additional security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it might be advisable to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you don't want to have a hole cut in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed within an outside wall. Needing considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly better left to the pros, if it's to be completed successfully. There are several possibilities for this kind of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angle (through pillar) configuration. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut out of your wall. A cat flap can then be attached to each side of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Sleaford - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. You local cat flap fitter should be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the window, wall or door, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
If the new cat flap is being fitted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must double check that the existing glass has been made and installed accurately. The pane will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues, if it's found this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
