Cat Flap Fitter Looe Cornwall (PL13): The installation of a cat flap to an external wall or door in your house in Looe, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of independence. Cats are inclined to get irritated and crabby when kept indoors, and not allowed to roam. Having access to the outside world via a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both physically and mentally. However, what type of cat flap is better for your situation?
The most basic kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a bendable material is fixed over it to give a bit of some protection from the weather. Even though this could be suitable in an outhouse door or garden fence panel, most cat owners in Looe would doubtless prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property.
This basic design is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property, nonetheless it can be somewhat improved upon by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. This means that any animal that hasn't got a special collar can't get into or leave your home. The downside is that any other cat in the Looe area who's got a similar style of collar can easily get into your home when using 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 user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The next stage in feline entry security is to choose the type of cat flap that recognises your cat's own micro-chip. The microchip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits just your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
When you're purchasing a cat flap, you should make certain that it's of a type that can be locked into position. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. Which means that it has the capability to allow entrance into your home only, be locked fully, permit exit from your premises only, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This provides you with a variety of alternatives on how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night time. In keeping with yours and your cat's needs, there is even the option to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with some of the more advanced devices.
If you've got a timber door in your property in Looe, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. But, if you are intending to fit it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you ought to seek outside help. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN LOOE
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can not be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling or cutting into any kind of double glazing will damage its strength and security, along with its thermal attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Looe cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current pane and put in an order for a brand new one. As a 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 fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take a week or two to manufacture. Once you have obtained your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new pane fitted. Your cat flap will then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, wood doors are the simplest option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your home in Looe. If you're a little dubious about creating a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be better off contacting an expert cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This kind of project will not be too expensive and is worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap expertly installed gives you that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many cases. It pays to know the internal construction, as some door panels are steel lined for further security. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to have a hole cut in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could have a cat flap installed in an external wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a bit more equipment and skill to fit, so it's definitely best left to a specialist. You could choose a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angle model which allows entry via a pillar. A neat square hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A suitable cat flap can then be attached to each side of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Looe - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap installed, but it is not working, or is damaged, it's quite possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. A professional Looe cat flap fitter will be glad to remove your old unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the window, wall or door on which it is secured.
Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed panel that has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been made and installed accurately is essential. If you discover this isn't the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass pane will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
