Cat Flap Fitter Bishop's Waltham Hampshire (SO32): To give your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Bishop's Waltham home. When continuously kept inside, cats much like humans, will get grumpy and irritated. When permitted easy access to the outside world with a cat flap, your beloved cat has a better chance of staying fit and healthy. Obviously, that's not the end of the story, because there are many kinds of cat flap, and determining which one is best for you and your cat might not be so easy.
A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat go through. Whilst this could be acceptable in a garden fence panel or shed door, the vast majority of Bishop's Waltham cat owners would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property.
As this option can allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it is not at all ideal, though it can be improved on a bit by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring an RF chip, IR or magnet. No animal will be able to get into or leave your home unless it is equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, as any other moggy in the area that has a similar model of collar may be able to gain access to your house. An upgrade to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.
The next level in feline access security is to install the kind of cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure it is of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold nowadays feature a 4-way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit only exit from your home, enable only access into your home, be locked fully, or have two-way exit and entry functionality. This gives full control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. In keeping with your cat's and your needs, there's even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with some of the higher end devices.
If you've got a wood door in your property in Bishop's Waltham, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. However, if it has to be fitted into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should on no account even attempt to tackle it yourself. These situations require the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have the knowledge and tools for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BISHOP'S WALTHAM
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazing will be damaged by cutting or drilling into it, and will detract from its thermal attributes, security and strength. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.
An experienced cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazed pane and have a local Bishop's Waltham glazing company knock up a new one. So that your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. This may take a couple of weeks to produce, however it's basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have taken possession of your new adapted pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new panel fitted. It's now possible to fit the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Bishop's Waltham, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are wood doors. If you're somewhat nervous about creating a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be happier contacting a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. A project of this type will not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will have the use of a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most instances. Nevertheless, some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for added security, which can cause some problems. The easiest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut a hole in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an external wall. Needing a lot more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is certainly best left to a specialist, if it's to be accomplished successfully. Almost all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angular access through a pillar is also possible. This installation involves a square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so that your furry friend can exit and enter your home whenever it desires.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bishop's Waltham - If your window, wall or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the existing cavity. An experienced Bishop's Waltham cat flap installer will be glad to take off your old unit and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, window or door on which it's attached.
Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing pane that's been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been fabricated, cut and installed accurately is essential. If it's discovered that the previous installation was bodged, the panel must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
