Cat Flap Fitter Carlton Colville Suffolk (NR33): Fitting a cat flap to an external wall or door in your property in Carlton Colville, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. Cats kept inside, as with people, will often show signs of irritability. Having easy access to world outside via will help your cat to stay fit, both mentally and physically. If you choose to go down the cat flap route, you will then have to determine what is the best type of cat flap for you.
The most straightforward style of cat flap, is simply that. A sheet of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to enable a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. Obviously, this is very basic, and won't be good enough for most Carlton Colville cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although it might be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.
This standard model can be improved on slightly with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it's still far from perfect as it enables other cats or animals a way to enter into your house.
A step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. The downside here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar can access your home with this kind of cat flap. An upgrade to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.
The next level in feline access security is to use a cat flap which identifies your pet's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.
Whatever cat flap you buy, it must have the ability to be locked in place. Most cat flaps sold nowadays have a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can allow exit only, permit only access into your premises, be locked fully, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This gives full control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. In keeping with your cat's and your needs, there's even the possibility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with several of the higher end devices.
If you've got a wood door in your home in Carlton Colville, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult. But, if you are planning to install it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you must seek outside assistance. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN CARLTON COLVILLE
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work immediately and give them the boot. New cat flaps can't be installed into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Cutting or drilling into any sort of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, as well as its insulation attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.
An experienced cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local Carlton Colville glazing company make a new purpose made one. This new panel will have a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap will be fitted. This might take a week or more to manufacture, but it is the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, your old glass unit will be removed, and the brand new one put in its place. It will now be possible to fit your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid timber door panels are, as I stated previously, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Carlton Colville. If you are a bit hesitant about cutting a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you might be happier contacting a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. A project of this kind will not be expensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your kitty has a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be installed into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the internal construction, since some uPVC door panels can have a steel lining for further security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it might be advisable to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - It is also possible to get a cat flap fitted into an outside wall of your house in Carlton Colville, if you do not wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for considerably more expertise and equipment to install, therefore it's definitely best left to a specialist. You could go for a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angled model that allows access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will have to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your cat can get out of and into your home whenever it wants.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Carlton Colville - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your wall, window or door, but it's damaged or not operating correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. A professional Carlton Colville cat flap fitter will be glad to remove your old entry unit and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the door, wall or window on which it is attached.
When the cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it will be essential to make sure that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new cat flap. If you discover that this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel will need to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
