Cat Flap Fitter High Wycombe Buckinghamshire (HP10): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your High Wycombe property. Cats are inclined to get irritated and grouchy when kept inside, and not able to roam free. Giving your pet access to the world outside by way of a cat flap can help keep them physically and mentally fit. So, you think it's a good idea, but what is perfect style of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The most basic type of cat flap, is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material placed over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat pass through it. Obviously, this is really basic, and won't be sufficient for most High Wycombe cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property, although it could be appropriate for a fence panel or outhouse door.
Because this solution allows other creatures or cats to enter your home, it is not at all ideal, although it can be improved on to some extent by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.
The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or get into your house unless it's fitted with this special collar. The downside here is that any other cat in the area who has a similar style of collar could possible gain access to your house with this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
Choosing a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's own microchip, is the next level in entry security for felines in High Wycombe. You have to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is nearby, only permitting entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.
Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure that it's of a design that can be locked into position. For added security, nearly all cat flaps have a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it's got the capability to permit only entry into your premises, enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This provides you with a range of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. In line with yours and your cat's needs, there's even the possibility to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the higher end models.
Fitting a cat flap on your own can be quite simple if you've got a solid wood door on your High Wycombe property, and reasonable do-it-yourself skills. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is certain to have have all the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN HIGH WYCOMBE
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can not be installed into existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling holes in any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, along with its thermal attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.
A professional cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazing unit and have a glazing firm knock up a new one. As part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a couple of weeks to produce. When your new glass panel shows up, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. It's now possible to install the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for installing a new cat flap in High Wycombe, as was stated earlier in this article, are timber door panels. It is normally best to get in touch with a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're at all dubious about making a big hole in your front door. This should give you the reassurance that you'll wind up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been done properly.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many cases. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some door panels are lined with steel for added security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slatted panel with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could choose to install the cat flap into an outside wall of your house. Needing much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly best left to a specialist, if it is to be completed successfully. Most cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angular access via a pillar is also possible. This installation calls for a neat square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap is then mounted on both sides of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in High Wycombe - If your window, door or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. You local cat flap fitter will remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, door or window, and fit a new flap for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is to be mounted into a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must ensure that the glass has been cut and installed in the right way. The glass pane will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it is found that this is not the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
