Cat Flap Fitter Henfield West Sussex (BN5): To give your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Henfield home. Rather like humans, when kept indoors, cats will sometimes show signs of irritability and frustration. Having accessibility to outside world with a cat flap will help your pet to remain fit, both physically and mentally. If this seems like a great idea to you, exactly what style of cat flap should you fit?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A piece of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and will not be adequate for most Henfield cat owners, who would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although it may be acceptable for a shed door or fence panel.
This simple model is still a long way off being perfect since it allows other cats or animals a way to enter your house, nonetheless it can be improved on a little by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your house, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. Once again this is a pretty basic type of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Henfield area that has a similar style of collar could perhaps get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system having a user programmed unique identifier.
Fitting a cat flap which can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in entrance devices for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow just your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whenever you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure it's of a type that can be locked into position. For added security, most cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit exit from your house only, be fully locked, enable admittance into your property only, or have two-way exit and entry functionality. This gives complete control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The facility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and based on yours and your pet's requirements is also a possibility with some of the high end brands of cat flap.
If you are fairly good at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you have a timber door on your home in Henfield. But, if you're planning to fit it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must seek outside help. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN HENFIELD
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the work right away and show them the gate. It's simply not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes as well. In actual fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it should never be attempted.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Henfield cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current panel and put in an order for a brand new one. This new pane will arrive with a hole cut out as a part of its structure where the cat flap can be fitted. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a couple of weeks to manufacture. Once your new glass pane arrives, the installer will take out the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to install your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, solid wooden door panels are the least complicated alternative in relation to cat flap installation on your house in Henfield. If you are uncomfortable with cutting a hole in your back or front door, it's wise to call a specialist to do the work for you. This type of project will not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat has a professionally fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be installed into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the internal construction, since some doors are lined with steel for added security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it might be advisable to swap this for a single panel.
Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for aesthetic or security reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed in an exterior wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, so it is definitely better left to the pros. Almost all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angular access via a pillar can also be achieved. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole made into your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to allow your furry friend to enter and exit as it pleases.

If the replacement cat flap is being mounted in a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must check that the glass has been manufactured and installed accurately. If it is found that this isn't the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the panel will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues.
