Cat Flap Fitter Calstock Cornwall (PL18): Installing a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Calstock home helps to give your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life. When kept indoors, cats as with people, will get irritated and grumpy. Giving your furry friend easy access to world outside via a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. So, you are sold on the idea, but exactly what is perfect form of cat flap for your beloved pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material hung over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat move through. Of course, this is very basic, and will not be sufficient for most cat owners in Calstock, who would prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although it might be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This simple model can be improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it is still far from ideal as it enables other cats or animals to get into your house.
The next step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. No animal will be able to leave or get into your house unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Calstock area who has a similar style of collar can easily access your home when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.
The next step-up in feline entry security is to consider the kind of cat flap which recognises your cat's micro-chip. The details of your cat's microchip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is close by.
Being able to lock it in position is vital regardless which cat flap you are buying. The majority of cat flaps sold currently boast a four way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can be fully locked, enable access into your home only, allow only exit from your home, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This gives full control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. Some top-end cat flaps can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's needs.
If you've got a timber door on your home in Calstock, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be all that complicated. However, if it is going to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you shouldn't even attempt it by yourself. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who will be delighted to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CALSTOCK
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them their marching orders. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should not be done in any circumstances.
A reliable Calstock cat flap fitter will diligently get the dimensions of your existing pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. This new pane will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap can be installed. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a couple of weeks to produce. After construction, your old glass unit will be removed, and the new one put in. Your cat flap will then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for cat flap installations in Calstock, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are solid timber door panels. It's usually safer to call on a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are nervous about making a big hole in your door. This type of undertaking won't be too costly and is well worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. You will have to verify what the internal structure of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. The models of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could opt to install a cat flap on an exterior wall of your home. This kind of installation is certainly better left to a specialist, as it requires a lot more skill and equipment to execute. Nearly all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angle access through a pillar is also possible. A square shaped hole will be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to enable your feline friend to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Calstock - If your door, wall or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to fit a replacement into the existing cavity. Your cat flap fitter will remove the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the window, wall or door, and install a brand new flap for your cat.
If the new cat flap is going to be installed into a pre cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must check that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed in the right way. The pane will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues, if you discover this is not the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
