Free Higham Ferrers Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The most fundamental style of cat flap, is simply that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to provide protection from the elements, but let the cat pass through. Of course, this is extremely basic, and won't be good enough for most cat owners in Higham Ferrers, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although it may be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This simple design can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it is still a long way from being perfect because it enables other creatures or cats a way to enter into your property.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your home, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar collar might be able to access your home, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. Your furry friend is the sole one to get access, offering an additional layer of security and control.

A cat flap that is can be recognised by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline access security. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing entry or exit to animals that have a microchip.

When you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain it is of a design that can be locked into position. For added security, the majority of cat flaps have a four way locking mechanism these days. Which means that it has the capability to allow only access into your home, be locked fully, allow only exit from your home, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there's even the option to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the more expensive devices.

If you're pretty decent at DIY, fitting your own cat flap should not be too difficult, as long as you've got a wooden door on your Higham Ferrers home. Although, if it needs to be fitted into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't even attempt it on your own. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or handyman with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, along with its thermal insulation properties. In actual fact, it makes the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be done.

A specialist cat flap fitter will take the measurements of the existing double glazing unit and have a local glazing company knock up a new purpose made one. As part of its structure this new double glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take a week or so to produce. As soon as your new glass pane shows up, the installer will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. The fitting of your cat flap can then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. You'll have to verify what the internal structure of you door is, because for additional security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall of your property in Higham Ferrers, if you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons. This type of installment is certainly better left to a professional, as it requires a lot more skill and equipment to execute. Almost all wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angled access through a pillar is also possible. Installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A suitable cat flap can then be mounted on each end of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Higham Ferrers - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working properly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement provided that the new cat flap is of a similar size. An experienced Higham Ferrers cat flap installer will be glad to take out your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's attached.

If the new cat flap is being installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must double check that the glass has been made and installed correctly. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

To ensure the safety and comfort of both indoor and outdoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing is crucial. A cat flap that is well-weatherproofed prevents wind, rain and cold draughts from seeping into the house, ensuring a warm and dry environment for both the feline and the occupants. A tight barrier against the elements is achieved with cat flaps that have high-quality seals and insulating materials. An extra option to shield the entrance from harsh climatic conditions is the installation of a weatherproof tunnel extension. The cat flap's effectiveness in providing a cozy and weather-protected space for your cat is preserved through regular maintenance, which involves checking seals for damage and deterioration.
