Cat Flap Fitter Kings Lynn Norfolk (PE30): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your house in Kings Lynn, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. Cats which are kept indoors, just like people, can often show signs of irritation. Allowing your pet easy access to outside world by way of a cat flap can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. But, what kind of cat flap is better in your case?
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A piece of bendable material placed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Whilst this might be appropriate for a garden fence panel or outhouse door, most Kings Lynn cat owners would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home.
As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, though it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. This requires your cat to use a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. The downside here is that any other cat in the Kings Lynn area who's got a similar model of collar will be able to access your property with this sort of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
A model of cat flap that's can be recognised by your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in feline entrance security. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.
Being able to lock it in place is important whichever cat flap you're purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a four way locking mechanism. This allows your cat flap to permit only entrance into your premises, enable exit from your premises only, be fully locked, or have 2-way entry and exit functionality. This will give you a number of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there is even the possibility to perform different functions according to the time of day, with a number of the higher end devices.
Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be quite straightforward if you've got a solid timber door on your Kings Lynn home, and reasonable do-it-yourself skills. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. These types of fixtures require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN KINGS LYNN
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not merely the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes as well. Actually, it renders your glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.
A reputable Kings Lynn cat flap fitter will meticulously take the measurements of your existing unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This might take one or two weeks to manufacture, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. As soon as your new glass pane is delivered, the installer will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. The cat flap will then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, solid wood door panels are the least complicated alternative when it comes to cat flap installation on your house in Kings Lynn. If you're nervous about making a hole in your back or front door, it's probably a good idea to contact a professional to do the job for you. An undertaking like this should not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will be climbing through an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most cases. You or your installer will need to determine what the interior structure of you door is, since for extra security certain uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single panel style.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could opt to install the cat flap on an outside wall of your property. This type of installment is certainly better left to a specialist, because it calls for a lot more equipment and skill to execute. You could go for a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angle model which enables access via a pillar. A square hole will be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on both ends to permit your feline friend to exit and enter as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Kings Lynn - If your wall, window or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. Your cat flap fitter should be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is being installed in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must check that the glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. The pane will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
