Cat Flap Fitter Whitefield Greater Manchester (M45): Installing a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Whitefield house provides your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a happy life. Cats tend to get grouchy and irritated when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam free. Giving your pet easy access to world outside with a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. But, what form of cat flap is best for your situation?
The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is placed over it to give a bit of some protection from the elements. Whilst this could be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Whitefield would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.
This standard design is still a long way from being perfect as it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your property, nevertheless it can be improved upon by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your house, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a fairly basic kind of cat flap, since any other moggy in the Whitefield area that's got a similar style of collar may be able to access your house. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the user.
Fitting a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines. You need to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. The flap is unlocked when your cat is nearby, only permitting entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
The ability to lock it in position is important no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. For added flexibility, most cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism nowadays. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit exit only, permit only access into your property, be locked fully, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This will give you options for all times of day and night, to control precisely how your cat flap works. In line with your pet's and your needs, there is even the option to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the top-end devices.
If you are pretty decent at DIY, installing a cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you've got a timber door on your property in Whitefield. But, if you're looking to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should seek outside help.
