Cat Flap Fitter Gerrards Cross Buckinghamshire (SL9): A simple way to improve your cat's independence and improve it's quality of life is to fit a cat flap on an external door or wall of your house in Gerrards Cross. Cats that are kept indoors, just like people, can show signs of frustration. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the positive aspects of allowing your cat access to the world outside via . If you opt to go with the cat flap option, you will then have to decide what is the best type of cat flap for you.
The most basic form of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to offer a bit of protection from the elements. Even though this may be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door, the vast majority of cat owners in Gerrards Cross would no doubt favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house.
This basic design is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other animals or cats to enter your house, however it can be improved on slightly by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. This requires your cat to use a collar that has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, therefore avoiding some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other cat in the area who's got a similar model of collar can access your home, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.
The kind of cat flap that is can be recognised by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next level in feline access security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and allows just your micro-chipped pets to use the entrance/exit.
No matter what cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable exit only, enable entrance into your home only, or have 2-way entry and exit capability. This will give you alternatives for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap works. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there is even the possibility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with a number of the more advanced models.
Putting in a cat flap on your own can be quite simple if you have a solid wood door, and respectable DIY capabilities. However, if it has to be installed in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN GERRARDS CROSS
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them packing immediately. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulation attributes too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsound.
An experienced cat flap installer will measure up the existing double glazed unit and have a local glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. This new panel will arrive with a hole cut out as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be manufactured, however if you need a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've obtained your new glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new panel installed. Your cat flap can then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as mentioned above, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Gerrards Cross. If you are uncertain about making a hole in your door, it's wise to call on a specialist to do the work for you. This type of project is fairly inexpensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your cat can enjoy a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, as some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to have a cat flap installed in an external wall of your house in Gerrards Cross, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more equipment and skill to fit, therefore it's certainly best left to the pros. You could decide on a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angle version which permits entry via a pillar. A neat square hole will need to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to permit your feline friend to exit and enter as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Gerrards Cross - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a door, wall or window, but it is broken or not working correctly, the current hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. A specialist Gerrards Cross cat flap installer will be happy to take out your old entry unit and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the door, window or wall on which it's mounted.
When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is essential to confirm that this was previously done correctly, before fitting the new cat flap. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge job, the pane must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
