Cat Flap Fitter Cheddar Somerset (BS27): Installing a cat flap doesn't only save you the headache of having to open the door every time your cat needs to go in or out, it also affords your cat more independence and improves it's quality of life. Cats which are kept indoors, much like people, will often show signs of irritability. Having easy access to outside world with will help your pet to keep fit, both mentally and physically. Obviously, that's not the whole story, since there are various types of cat flaps, and deciding which design is best for you and your pet might not be so straightforward.
The most rudimentry type of cat flap is basically that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. The vast majority of cat owners in Cheddar would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although this might be okay for a shed or outhouse door.
This basic model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it is still a long way from being perfect since it enables other animals or cats a way to enter into your house.
A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to open the flap and get into or leave your property, therefore keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Once again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, since any other cat in the Cheddar area that has a similar style of collar can easily get into your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
Installing a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in access devices for felines in Cheddar. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is nearby, only permitting access to animals that have a micro-chip.
When you're buying a cat flap, you should make certain that it's of a design that can be locked. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps have a four way locking system nowadays. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable admittance into your home only, enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, or have two-way entry and exit capability. This will provide you with a variety of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. A few high end models can be set to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's needs.
If you are fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a timber door on your Cheddar home. However, if it needs to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. Such situations require the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have all the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CHEDDAR
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the panel, but it takes away the insulation attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsound.
A reputable Cheddar cat flap installer will diligently take the measurements of your existing pane and order a custom-made one from a local glazing firm. As an integral part of its construction this new glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. You may have to wait two weeks or so for this pane to be manufactured, but if you need a cat flap fitted into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once you have taken possession of your new glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. Your cat flap will then be put in.
External Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as we already stated, the simplest options for new cat flap installation in Cheddar. It is often safer to hire the services of an experienced handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all dubious about cutting a hole in your front or back door. This will give you the reassurance that you'll finish up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken properly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most cases. You'll need to ascertain what the internal structure of you door is, because for extra security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could decide to install a cat flap in an exterior wall of your house. A wall cat flap entrance requires a little more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it is definitely better left to the pros. You could choose a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model which enables access through a pillar. A neat square hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so that your furry friend can exit and enter the house whenever it desires.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Cheddar - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working properly, the current hole in your door, wall or window can be fitted with a replacement as long as the new cat flap is of a comparable size. An experienced Cheddar cat flap installer will be glad to remove your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the window, door or wall on which it's mounted.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. The glass must be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found this is not the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
