Cambourne Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Cambourne Cambridgeshire (CB23): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Cambourne home.

Naturally, that's not the end of the story, because there are numerous sorts of cat flaps, and determining what design is best for you and your cat might not be so easy.

The simplest style of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give a bit of some protection from the weather. The vast majority of cat owners in Cambourne would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property, although this could be okay for a shed or outhouse door.

This simple design is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other cats or creatures to get into your property, but it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your home unless it is equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, because any other cat in the Cambourne area that has a similar model of collar could perchance gain access to your property. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline access security is to install the type of cat flap that recognises your pet's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to pets that are microchipped.

No matter what cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in place. Most cat flaps sold currently boast a 4-way locking system. This means that it has the capability to enable only exit from your home, be locked fully, allow admission into your property only, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers you choices for all times of night and day, to have control over exactly how your cat flap operates. A few high end devices can be programmed to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your needs.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be really straightforward if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable DIY capabilities. Under no circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door. Such situations require the expertise and skills of a competent cat flap installer or odd job man, who'll have the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire somebody who tries 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. New cat flaps cannot be installed into existing double glazed window or door panels. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not merely the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulating attributes too. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Cambourne cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current panel and order the new one. So your cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new glazed panel will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take a week or more to produce. Once you have received your new adapted glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new panel fitted. Your cat flap can then be mounted.

External Wooden Doors - Solid wood doors are, as we stated previously, the easiest options for cat flap installation in Cambourne. It is usually wise to hire the services of a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're at all uncertain about creating a hole in your back or front door. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to finish up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been accomplished properly.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many cases. It is necessary to know the internal construction, as some uPVC door panels are steel lined for extra security. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to have a cat flap fitted into an outside wall of your home in Cambourne, if you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons. This kind of installation is undoubtedly better left to an expert, as it requires a lot more equipment and skill to execute. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. A square hole will have to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so that your cat can enter and exit the house whenever it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Cambourne - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it is damaged or not operating correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap fitter will be able to take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding window, wall or door, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed panel that's been pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made and installed in the right way is crucial. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems with the new cat flap.
