Cat Flap Fitter Ilfracombe Devon (EX34): Installing a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Ilfracombe house provides your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a happy life. Cats are inclined to get irritated and crabby when kept inside, and not able to roam free. Having accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap will help your furry friend to keep fit, both mentally and physically. If this sounds like a good option for you, precisely what type of cat flap should you fit?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to offer a bit of protection from the elements. Of course, this is really basic, and will rarely adequate for most cat owners in Ilfracombe, who would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it may be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This simple model is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats to enter into your property, but it can be improved on a little by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.
A step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Therefore any animal without a special collar can't access or leave your property. Again this is a fairly basic type of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Ilfracombe area who has a similar style of collar could perchance get into your home. An enhancement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.
The kind of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next stage in Ilfracombe feline entry security. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat is close to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your micro-chipped pets to use the entrance/exit.
Being able to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you're buying. For extra security, most cat flaps have a four way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means it's got the capability to be locked fully, permit only access into your premises, allow only exit from your home, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers you solutions for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap works. The ability to perform different functions according to the time of day, and based on your cat's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.
Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be pretty simple if you've got a solid wood door on your Ilfracombe home, and reasonable DIY skills. Although, if it is going to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it yourself. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ILFRACOMBE
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them on their way. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, as well as its insulating attributes. The truth is, it makes your glazing unsafe and it should not ever be done.
A reliable Ilfracombe cat flap fitter will meticulously take the precise measurements of your current pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. As an integral part of its construction this new glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. You may have to wait a week or so for this special pane to be made, but if you need a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. When your new glass pane is delivered, the fitter will remove the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. It's now possible to fit the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as mentioned previously, the simplest options for installing a new cat flap in Ilfracombe. If you're nervous about making a hole in your front or back door, it's probably a good idea to call an expert to do the work for you. This kind of project won't be too expensive and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be installed into uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for added security, which can cause some issues. A one piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single panel model.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to have a cat flap fitted on an exterior wall of your home in Ilfracombe, if you don't want to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more skill and equipment to install, therefore it is definitely best left to the pros. The majority of cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angular access via a pillar is also a possibility. A square hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Ilfracombe - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A professional Ilfracombe cat flap installer will gladly remove your old entry unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the wall, window or door on which it is mounted.
If the replacement cat flap is to be fitted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must check that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
