Cat Flap Fitter Bexhill-on-Sea East Sussex (TN38 and TN39): The installation of a cat flap to an external wall or door in your property in Bexhill-on-Sea, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. When continuously kept inside, cats just like people, will get irritated and grouchy. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the positive aspects of allowing your pet accessibility to outside world by means of a cat flap. So, you think it's a good idea, but exactly what is perfect kind of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most basic type of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat climb through. Although this may be acceptable for an outhouse door or garden fence panel, most Bexhill-on-Sea cat owners would no doubt favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property.
This uncomplicated design can be marginally improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it's still far from perfect since it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter into your property.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your property unless it is fitted with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the Bexhill-on-Sea area that has a similar model of collar may be able to get into your house with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The next step-up in feline access security is to fit the type of cat flap that recognises your cat's microchip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is close by.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. For extra flexibility, most cat flaps have a 4-way locking system these days. Which means that it has the capability to enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, allow only access into your house, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This gives total control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night time. A few more advanced cat flaps can be set to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your needs.
If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be too difficult, if you have a wooden door on your property in Bexhill-on-Sea. But, if you're looking to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside assistance. This kind of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented handymen who will be glad to take on such work.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BEXHILL-ON-SEA
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and give them the boot. New cat flaps can not be fitted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any sort of double glazing will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its security, strength and insulating properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A reputable Bexhill-on-Sea cat flap installer will meticulously get the dimensions of your current panel and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. As a part of its construction this new double glazing panel will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this special pane to be manufactured, however if you need a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. Once you have received your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. The cat flap will then be mounted.
External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as stated earlier, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Bexhill-on-Sea. If you're somewhat uncomfortable with making a sizeable hole in your front or back door, you may be better off hiring an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. A project like this will not be expensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your cat can enjoy an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some doors are lined with steel for additional security. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single pane type.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed on an outside wall. Needing considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly better left to the pros, if it's to be completed correctly. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angular access through a pillar can also be achieved. A neat square hole will need to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap is then fitted to both ends of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bexhill-on-Sea - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not working correctly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement providing that the new cat flap is of a similar size. An expert Bexhill-on-Sea cat flap installer will gladly take off your old unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any damage to the window, door or wall on which it is secured.
Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed panel that's been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed in the right way is vital. The glass will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found that this isn't the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.
