Cat Flap Fitter Marlow Buckinghamshire (SL7): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your home in Marlow, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. Cats which are kept indoors, just like people, can show signs of irritability. Having accessibility to outside world with a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both mentally and physically. So, you're sold on the idea, but what is perfect type of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The most basic type of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat move through. Whilst this may be appropriate for a garden fence panel or shed door, most cat owners in Marlow would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house.
Since this solution allows other cats or creatures to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, although it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. No animal will be able to access or leave your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. The fact that any other cat in the Marlow area that has a similar model of collar could possible get into your home, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system having a user programmed unique identifier.
A model of cat flap which is can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next stage in Marlow feline entrance security. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is close-by, only allowing exit or entry to animals that are microchipped.
When you are buying a cat flap, you must ensure that it is of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold these days feature a 4-way locking mechanism. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit admission into your house only, be fully locked, permit exit only, or have two-way entry and exit capability. This will provide you with a range of choices on how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. Some of the higher end cat flaps can be set to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.
Putting in a cat flap yourself can be fairly easy if you have a solid wood door, and reasonable DIY skills. But, if you're looking to fit it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you need to seek outside help. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is certain to have have the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN MARLOW
Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazing will be damaged by drilling or cutting into it, and will take away its security, thermal insulation attributes and strength. In actual fact, it renders your glazing unsafe and it should not ever be done.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Marlow cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing unit and put in an order for a brand new one. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take a week or so to manufacture. As soon as your new glass panel arrives, the fitter will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. Your cat flap can then be mounted.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, wood door panels are the simplest alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your house in Marlow. It is often wise to contact a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are unsure about making a hole in your front or back door. This will give you the reassurance that you are going to wind up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the job has been accomplished correctly and without causing damage to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many cases. You or your fitter will have to ascertain what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a steel lining. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be less expensive to replace the panel with a single panel style.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut a hole in your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you could have a cat flap installed on an external wall. Needing a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is certainly better left to a specialist, if it's to be executed successfully. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angular access via a pillar can also be achieved. A square hole will have to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to enable your feline friend to exit and enter as it pleases.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Marlow - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your door, window or wall, but it is damaged or not functioning correctly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for installing a new one. A professional Marlow cat flap fitter will be happy to take off your old device and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage to the window, door or wall on which it is attached.
Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazing panel which has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been made and installed in the right way is crucial. If you discover this is not the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass pane will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
