Cat Flap Fitter Bognor Regis West Sussex (PO21): Fitting a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your house in Bognor Regis, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence and freedom. Cats are inclined to get irritated and grouchy when constantly kept inside, and not allowed to roam. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the positive aspects of giving your furry friend accessibility to world outside via a cat flap. So, you are sold on the idea, but what is perfect type of cat flap for your precious pet?
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is fixed over it to offer some protection from the weather. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely sufficient for most Bognor Regis cat owners, who would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house, although it could be okay for an outhouse or shed door.
This simple design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other animals or cats a way to get into your home, however it can be improved on to some degree by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Subsequently, any animal that hasn't got a special collar can't access or leave your property. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the Bognor Regis area who's got a similar model of collar can easily access your home with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.
Installing a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in access devices for felines in Bognor Regis. The microchip number is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits just your microchipped pets to enter/exit.
The ability to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. Currently, most cat flaps on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for extra security. Which means that it has the capability to be locked fully, permit only exit from your home, enable admittance into your home only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This provides full control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the night time. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your needs is also an option with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.
If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid wood door on your house in Bognor Regis. But, if you're hoping to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must seek outside help. This kind of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who are delighted to accept such a task.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BOGNOR REGIS
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new pane. This new pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure where the cat flap can be installed. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take one or two weeks to manufacture. After fabrication, the old glass will be removed, and the brand new one put in. It will now be possible to install the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wood doors are the least complicated option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your house in Bognor Regis. If you are a little unsure about cutting a sizeable hole in your door, you might be better off bringing in a professional handyman or cat flap fitter instead. A project of this sort is comparatively inexpensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will be climbing through a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, because some door panels are lined with steel for extra security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be better to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to cut a hole in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you could have a cat flap installed in an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it is definitely best left to an expert. The majority of cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angular access through a pillar is also an option. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole made into your wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to enable your feline friend to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bognor Regis - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of a similar size. An experienced Bognor Regis cat flap installer will be happy to remove your old entry device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it is secured.
When your cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. If it is found this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass panel must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
