Cat Flap Fitter Faversham Kent (ME13): Installing a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Faversham house allows your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life. When constantly kept inside, cats as with humans, will get irritated and grouchy. Having access to the outside world with a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both physically and mentally. But, what sort of cat flap is best for your situation?
The simplest sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but let the cat go through. While this may be suitable in an outhouse door or fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Faversham would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home.
This simple model can be somewhat improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter your home.
The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that does not have a special collar can't access or leave your house. Again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, since any other cat in the area who has a similar model of collar can easily gain access to your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
The next level in feline access security is to fit a cat flap which identifies your cat's microchip. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is close by.
Being able to lock it in place is important regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold currently boast a four way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, allow only exit from your home, permit admission 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 throughout the day and during the night time. A few high end devices can be set to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's needs.
If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be too difficult, if you've got a solid timber door on your Faversham home. But, if you're planning to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you need to seek outside help. Such situations call for the expertise and skills of a reputable cat flap fitter or carpenter, who will have all the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN FAVERSHAM
Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling or cutting into it, and will detract from its strength, insulating attributes and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.
A trustworthy Faversham cat flap fitter will carefully get the dimensions of your existing unit and order a purpose made one from a local glazing supplier. To ensure that your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazed panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. You may have a one or two week wait for this special pane to be made, but if you want a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've received your new modified pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. It's now possible to install the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, solid wooden doors are the easiest option in relation to cat flap installation on your home in Faversham. It is often better to get in touch with a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're unsure about cutting a big hole in your front door. This type of task will not be too costly and is well worth doing properly, if having your cat flap expertly installed gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for extra security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could opt to install the cat flap on an external wall of your house in Faversham. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more equipment and expertise to install, therefore it is definitely best left to the pros. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angular access through a pillar is also an option. A neat square hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. An appropriate cat flap is then attached to both ends of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Faversham - If you already have a cat flap installed on a door, window or wall, but it is damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. An experienced Faversham cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old device and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, window or door on which it is secured.
If the new cat flap is to be installed into a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must double check that the glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel must be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
