Cat Flap Fitter Chafford Hundred Essex (RM16): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your house in Chafford Hundred, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence and freedom. When kept inside, cats much like people, will get irritated and grouchy. Having access to the outside world via a cat flap will help your furry friend to stay fit, both mentally and physically. If this sounds like a good option for you, exactly what style of cat flap should you put in?
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a flexible material is placed over it to give a bit of protection from the weather. Most Chafford Hundred cat owners would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although this could be appropriate for a shed door or fence panel.
This basic model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it's still a long way off being ideal because it enables other cats or creatures a means by which to get into your house.
Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, IR or RF chip. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your property, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. Again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, because any other cat in the area that has a similar style of collar can gain access to your house. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the householder.
The type of cat flap that's able to identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in Chafford Hundred feline access security. The details of your cat's microchip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one pet). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is close by.
Regardless which cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in position. These days, almost all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking system for added security. Which means that the cat flap can enable exit from your home only, be fully locked, enable admittance into your property only, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This provides complete control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The ability to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.
If you have a timber door on your house in Chafford Hundred, putting in you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. Under no circumstances should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. These situations require the expertise and skills of a specialist cat flap fitter or odd job man, who will have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN CHAFFORD HUNDRED
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazed door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps can not be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Chafford Hundred cat flap fitter will measure your current panel and put in an order for a brand new one. So the cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new double glazing unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure. You might have a one or two week waiting period for this special pane to be produced, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you have acquired your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. The fitting of the cat flap can then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as already mentioned, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Chafford Hundred. If you're a bit unsure about creating an opening in your front door, you might be happier getting in touch with a specialist cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This type of project will not be expensive and will provide you with the assurance of knowing that your cat will be using an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the internal construction, since some doors are lined with steel for added security. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not really want to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can get a cat flap installed in an external wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it is definitely best left to a specialist. You could choose a straight-through tunnel design, or even a right angle model which allows entry through a pillar. Installation entails a square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap is then attached to both ends of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Chafford Hundred - If your door, window or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A professional Chafford Hundred cat flap fitter will be happy to take off your old device and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, window or door on which it's mounted.
If the substitute cat flap is being installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must ensure that the glass has been cut and installed accurately. The glass panel will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
