Cat Flap Fitter Corsham Wiltshire (SN13): Installing a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Corsham home provides your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a happy life. Cats that are kept indoors, just like people, will show signs of frustration. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your pet easy access to world outside via a cat flap. So, you are sold on the idea, but which is best style of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most straightforward sort of cat flap, is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible bit of material fixed over it, to keep the elements out, but let the cat go through. Although this may be acceptable in a shed or outhouse door, most Corsham cat owners would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.
Because this option can allow other creatures or cats to enter your property, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar may be able to get into your house, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.
Fitting a cat flap which can identify your cat's own microchip, is the next level in entrance gadgets for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for extra flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable only exit from your home, be locked fully, enable only entrance into your home, or have two-way exit and entry functionality. This provides you with a range of choices on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. In line with your cat's and your needs, there's even the option to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the more advanced devices.
If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, if you have a timber door on your Corsham home. But, if you are planning to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should ask for outside help. Such situations require the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, who is sure to have have the knowledge and tools for this type of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CORSHAM
Double Glazing Installations - If you employ somebody who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any type of double glazing will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its security, thermal attributes and strength. In fact, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.
A specialist cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazing pane and have a glazing firm make a new purpose made one. This new panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be installed. You might have a one or two week waiting period for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap installed in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. It's now possible to fit your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for new cat flap installations in Corsham, as was previously mentioned, are solid wooden doors. It is often advisable to get in touch with a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, if you're in any way unsure about making a hole in your back or front door. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you will finish up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been completed properly.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your fitter will need to find out what the internal construction of you door is, because for additional security certain uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single pane model.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to have a cat flap installed in an exterior wall of your property in Corsham, if you don't wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons. Requiring considerably more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is certainly better left to the pros, if it is to be completed successfully. You can go with a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angle model which enables entry via a pillar. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square hole made into your selected wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to enable your furry friend to exit and enter as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Corsham - If you already have a cat flap installed on your wall, door or window, but it's damaged or not working properly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for the installation of a replacement. An experienced Corsham cat flap installer will be happy to take off your old entry unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it's attached.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it will be necessary to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new flap. The glass panel must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems, if you discover this isn't the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
