Cat Flap Fitter Chafford Hundred Essex (RM16): Installing a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Chafford Hundred property provides your cat with the independence it needs to live a happy life. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when constantly kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. When your precious cat is permitted instant access to the world outside via a cat flap, there's a better likelihood of it staying both physically and mentally healthy. If you elect to go down the cat flap route, your next decision will be what is the best type of cat flap for you.
The simplest style of cat flap is essentially that. A sheet of flexible material hung over a hole in a door to allow a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. The majority of cat owners in Chafford Hundred would no doubt favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although this might be acceptable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
Because this solution permits other creatures or cats to enter your home, it's not at all ideal, although it can be improved on a little by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, therefore preventing some undesirable visitors. The downside here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar may be able to access your home with this type of cat flap. An upgrade to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.
The next step-up in feline entrance security is to use a model of cat flap that identifies your cat's microchip. You need to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one cat it will allow multiple entries. Whenever your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
The ability to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you're buying. Nowadays, most cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for extra security. This means that the cat flap can enable exit only, permit only access into your property, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This will provide you with a variety of choices on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. The ability to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and based on yours and your cat's needs is also an option with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.
If you are fairly decent at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid wood door on your Chafford Hundred home. But, if you are planning to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should seek outside assistance. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN CHAFFORD HUNDRED
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can't be mounted into existing double glazed window or door panels. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will damage its strength and security, together with its insulating attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsound.
A reputable Chafford Hundred cat flap fitter will diligently measure up your current pane and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. So that the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazing unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take one or two weeks to produce. Once you've acquired your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. Your cat flap will then be installed.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, solid timber doors are the simplest alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your property in Chafford Hundred. It is usually advisable to call on an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are in any way dubious about cutting a big hole in your front or back door. This type of project is comparatively inexpensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your kitty will be using an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. It pays to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for extra security. The models of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type panel, it may be better to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed within an external wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more expertise and equipment to install, so it's definitely better left to a professional. The majority of cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angle access through a pillar is also an option. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut into your wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so that your furry friend can enter and exit your home whenever it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Chafford Hundred - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a door, window or wall, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap fitter will take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding window, door or wall, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that has been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed accurately is vital. The glass will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems, if it is found that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
