Cat Flap Fitter Crediton Devon (EX17): Installing a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your Crediton house provides your cat with the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life. When continuously kept inside, cats as with humans, will get grouchy and irritated. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your cat access to the world outside via a cat flap. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is best kind of cat flap for your precious pet?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is just that. A piece of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Of course, this is extremely basic, and won't be adequate for most Crediton cat owners, who would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property, although it might be suitable for a fence panel or shed door.
This simple design can be improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it is still a long way from being perfect as it enables other animals or cats a way to enter into your property.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your property unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The fact that any other cat in the Crediton area who has a similar model of collar can still get into your property, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.
Fitting a cat flap which can identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry gadgets for felines. You need to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your microchipped pets to exit or enter.
Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you should make certain that it's of a type that can be locked. For added security, most cat flaps have a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it has the capability to permit only exit from your home, allow entry into your home only, be locked fully, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This gives total control over how your cat flap functions both throughout the day and during the night. The ability to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.
If you've got a wooden door on your property in Crediton, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door. These situations require the expertise and skills of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CREDITON
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and give them the boot. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not merely the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes as well. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Crediton cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing unit and order a brand new one. So the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazed panel will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. You might have to wait one or two weeks for this pane to be produced, but if you want a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you have acquired your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. The cat flap can then be fitted.
External Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as I already mentioned, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Crediton. If you're a bit uncertain about creating an opening in your back or front door, you may be happier hiring an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This type of project will not be too expensive and is well worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many instances. Having said that, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which can cause some problems. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it might be easier to replace this with a single panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can get a cat flap installed in an outside wall. Needing considerably more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly best left to a specialist, if it's to be executed correctly. You'll find there are a couple of options for this sort of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) pattern. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole cut into your specified wall. A cat flap can then be installed on each end of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Crediton - If your wall, window or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. A competent cat flap fitter in Crediton will be capable of removing your unwanted cat flap, and fit a new one in its place without damaging the wall, door or window.
If the substitute cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must make certain that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately. If it's found that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
