Free Great Torrington Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible bit of material hung over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat climb through. Although this could be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Great Torrington would favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property.

This simple model can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it is still a long way from being perfect because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to use a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. Subsequently, any animal that does not have a special collar can't get into or leave your property. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar can easily access your home, is the downside with this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices because they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

Picking a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's own microchip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines. The micro-chip details are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is close by.

It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.

This could take a couple of weeks to produce, however it is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. Once your new pane of glass arrives, the installer will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The fitting of the cat flap will then be carried out.
