Cat Flap Fitter Burgess Hill West Sussex (RH15): Fitting a cat flap to an external wall or door in your house in Burgess Hill, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. Cats tend to get grumpy and irritated when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam free. Having easy access to outside world via a cat flap will help your furry friend to keep fit, both mentally and physically. So, you are sold on the idea, but precisely what is best type of cat flap for your pet?
The simplest kind of cat flap is basically that. A bit of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. While this may be appropriate for an outhouse door or fence panel, the vast majority of Burgess Hill cat owners would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house.
This standard model is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other cats or animals a means by which to get into your property, nonetheless it can be improved upon by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your home unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Burgess Hill area that's got a similar style of collar can gain access to your home with this type of cat flap. An upgrade to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.
A cat flap which is capable of identifying your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in Burgess Hill feline access security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). Whenever your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. Nowadays, most cat flaps available on the market feature a 4-way locking system for added security. This allows your cat flap to enable access into your property only, be fully locked, enable exit from your property only, or have two-way entry and exit capability. This will give you a range of solutions on precisely how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night. In keeping with your cat's and your needs, there's even the possibility to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the higher end models.
If you've got a wood door on your home in Burgess Hill, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. However, if it is going to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This sort of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who'll be ready to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BURGESS HILL
Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its thermal insulation properties, strength and security. In fact, it makes your glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazing pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Burgess Hill cat flap installer will measure your current unit and order a brand new one. This new pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap will be installed. This may take a couple of weeks to produce, but it is basically the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've acquired your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new panel fitted. The installation of the cat flap will then be carried out.
External Wooden Doors - Solid wooden door panels are, as I mentioned previously, the easiest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Burgess Hill. It is generally wise to employ the expert services of a professional handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're uncomfortable with cutting a big hole in your door. This should give you the peace of mind that you are going to finish up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many instances. You'll need to establish what the internal structure of you door is, because for extra security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it may be easier to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you do not really want to have a hole cut into your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can have a cat flap installed in an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to install, therefore it is definitely better left to the pros. You can decide on a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angled version which allows entry through a pillar. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole cut out of your wall. Each end of the hole is then installed with a cat flap so that your furry pal can get out of and into your house whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Burgess Hill - If your door, wall or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it is not working, or is damaged, it's quite possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. You local cat flap fitter will remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, door or window, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that has been pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been cut and installed in the right way is vital. If it's found this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the panel must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
