Cat Flap Fitter Claygate Surrey (KT10): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Claygate, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when constantly kept inside, and not able to roam free. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is just one of the positive aspects of allowing your furry friend accessibility to world outside with a cat flap. But, what style of cat flap is most suitable for your circumstances?
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is simply that. A piece of flexible material fixed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through, but keep the elements out. The vast majority of Claygate cat owners would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although this might be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door.
Since this option allows other creatures or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Subsequently, any animal without a special collar can't leave or access your house. The downside here is that any other cat in the Claygate area who's got a similar model of collar could perhaps gain access to your house with this type of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
Having a cat flap which can identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in access gadgets for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is in close proximity, only permitting entry or exit to pets that have a micro-chip.
The ability to lock it in position is essential whichever cat flap you're buying. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays have a four way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, allow admittance into your property only, enable exit only, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This provides you with a number of alternatives on how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night. In line with your pet's and your needs, there is even the possibility to perform different functions according to the time of day, with some of the top-end devices.
Putting in a cat flap yourself can be quite straightforward if you've got a solid timber door on your Claygate property, and reasonable DIY skills. But, if you're hoping to fit it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should ask for outside help. These sorts of fixtures call for a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CLAYGATE
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should not be done in any circumstances.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Claygate cat flap fitter will measure your existing pane and put in an order for the new one. This new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction where your cat flap can be installed. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take a week or more to produce. When your new glass pane shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. Your cat flap will then be installed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, wood doors are the easiest option in relation to cat flap installation on your home in Claygate. If you are somewhat hesitant about making a sizeable hole in your door, you might be better off hiring a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter instead. This type of project should not be expensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your kitty can enjoy an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. Having said that, some uPVC door panels are steel lined for additional security, which may cause some problems. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could decide to install your cat flap in an external wall of your home. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more equipment and skill to fit, therefore it is certainly better left to the pros. Almost all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, but right angle access through a pillar is also a possibility. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole neatly cut out of your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to permit your furry pal to come in and out as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Claygate - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it is broken or not functioning properly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap fitter will take off the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding door, window or wall, and install a new flap for your cat.
Before fitting a new flap in a double glazed panel that has been pre-cut, making certain that the existing glass has been made and installed correctly is crucial. If it becomes obvious this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit will need to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
