Cat Flap Fitter Hunstanton Norfolk (PE36): Putting in a cat flap doesn't only save you the inconvenience of having to open the door every time your cat needs to go in or out, it also gives your cat extra independence and enhances it's quality of life. Cats are just like humans in many ways, and will typically show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for lengthy periods of time without a break. Allowing your pet easy access to world outside with a cat flap can also help keep them physically and mentally fit. If you elect to go with the cat flap option, you'll then have to decide what is the best type of cat flap.
The most straightforward type of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut in a door and a bendable material is fixed over it to give some protection from the weather. Naturally, this is really basic, and will not be good enough for most cat owners in Hunstanton, who would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property, although it might be appropriate for a garden fence panel or shed door.
This simple design can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it is still far from perfect as it allows other animals or cats a way to enter into your house.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, thus preventing some undesirable visitors. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar will be able to get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier.
The type of cat flap which is can be recognised by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in Hunstanton feline access security. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped animals, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.
Being able to lock it in place is vital regardless which cat flap you're buying. Most cat flaps sold these days feature a four way locking mechanism. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit only exit from your home, be locked fully, enable access into your house only, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This will provide you with solutions for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap operates. The ability to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on your pet's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the top-end models of cat flap.
Putting in a cat flap by yourself can be really straightforward if you have a solid wood door on your Hunstanton house, and respectable do-it-yourself abilities. But, if you are hoping to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you need to seek outside assistance. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation from a trustworthy cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN HUNSTANTON
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap has to be installed in a double glazing panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps cannot be installed into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will diminish its thermal attributes, security and strength. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it shouldn't be attempted in any circumstances whatsoever.
It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Hunstanton cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing pane and put in an order for the new one. This new panel will have a pre-cut hole as part of its structure where your cat flap will be installed. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this to be made, but if you want a cat flap installed in an existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to do it. When your new panel of glass is delivered, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It will now be possible to install and set up the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as I stated earlier, the simplest options for new cat flap installation in Hunstanton. If you are a little dubious about creating a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you may be happier bringing in an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This type of task won't be all that expensive and is worthwhile doing properly, if having your cat flap expertly installed offers you that additional reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most cases. It is necessary to know the internal construction, because some uPVC door panels are steel lined for further security. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single pane style.
Wall Installation - If you don't want to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. Needing much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely best left to a professional, if it's to be accomplished correctly. You could opt for a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angle version that enables entry through a pillar. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole cut out of your specified wall. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit the house whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Hunstanton - If you already have a cat flap fitted on your door, wall or window, but it is broken or not operating properly, the existing hole can hopefully be re-used for the installation of a replacement. A trustworthy cat flap installer in Hunstanton will be capable of removing the old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding door, window or wall.
When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is important to confirm that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new flap. The glass panel must be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems, if it is found this isn't the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
