Cat Flap Fitter Melksham Wiltshire (SN12): To allow your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Melksham property. Cats kept indoors, much like people, will often show signs of frustration. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your cat accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap. So, you are sold on the idea, but which is best type of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The most rudimentry style of cat flap is essentially that. A piece of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. The vast majority of cat owners in Melksham would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although this may be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.
As this solution permits other creatures or cats to enter your house, it's not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced to some extent by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased in it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. The point that any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar might be able to get into your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.
A cat flap that is able to identify your cat's own micro-chip, is the next stage in feline access security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). The flap is unfastened when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing access to animals that have a micro-chip.
Being able to lock it in place is vital regardless which cat flap you're buying. For added security, most cat flaps boast a four way locking system these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, enable entrance into your home only, enable exit only, or have 2-way entry and exit capability. This gives full control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. Some of the top-end models can be set to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, based on your cat's and your requirements.
If you've got a wood door in your home in Melksham, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. But, if you're hoping to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you ought to seek outside assistance. Such situations require the expertise and skills of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is certain to have have all the tools and knowledge for this type of installation project.
