Cat Flap Fitter Framlingham Suffolk (IP13): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Framlingham property. When continuously kept indoors, cats much like people, will get grouchy and irritated. When your beloved cat is allowed instant access to the great outdoors via , there's a much better likelihood of it staying both mentally and physically fit. If you opt to go down the cat flap route, your next decision will be what is the best type of cat flap.
A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is hung over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the weather. Obviously, this is extremely basic, and will not be adequate for most Framlingham cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it could be suitable for a fence panel or outhouse door.
This simple model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it is still far from ideal since it enables other cats or creatures to enter your home.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it is equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, because any other cat in the Framlingham area that's got a similar collar could perhaps gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products because they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.
Picking a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next level in entry devices for felines in Framlingham. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to pets that are microchipped.
No matter what cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in position. These days, almost all cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can enable only exit from your home, allow only entry into your home, be fully locked, or be set for two way exit and entry. This provides total control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The facility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with your cat's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
Installing a cat flap yourself can be really straightforward if you've got a solid timber door on your Framlingham property, and respectable do-it-yourself capabilities. However, if it is going to be fitted into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it on your own. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN FRAMLINGHAM
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, send them packing immediately. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling holes in any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its thermal properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A dependable Framlingham cat flap fitter will diligently get the dimensions of your existing unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing firm. This new glazed pane will have a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This might take a week or more to manufacture, but it's really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you've taken possession of your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It's now possible to install and set up your cat flap.

This type of task won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. However, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for extra security, which can cause some problems. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - It is also possible to get a cat flap fitted in an external wall of your house in Framlingham, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons.

You can decide on a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angled model which allows access through a pillar. This installation involves a square hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. A cat flap can then be fitted to each end of the hole.

A professional Framlingham cat flap fitter will be glad to remove your old entry device and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, window or door on which it is mounted.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it is important to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new flap. If it is found this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
