Molesey Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Molesey Surrey (KT8): 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 exterior door or wall in your Molesey home. Cats which are kept indoors, as with humans, can show signs of frustration. Having accessibility to world outside with a cat flap will help your cat to remain fit, both mentally and physically. But, what type of cat flap is better in your case?

Free Molesey Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The most fundamental style of cat flap, is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat pass through it. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be good enough for most cat owners in Molesey, who would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although it could be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This basic model can be marginally improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, but it's still a long way off being perfect because it enables other cats or creatures to enter into your home.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. Therefore any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot get into or leave your home. Again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar will be able to access your home. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user. Access is restricted to only your furry friend, resulting in an extra layer of control and security.

The next stage in feline access security is to consider a model of cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. When your cat comes into close vicinity of 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 whichever cat flap you are purchasing. Nowadays, almost all cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking system for extra security. Which means that the cat flap can allow entrance into your property only, allow only exit from your home, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This gives you alternatives for all times of day and night, to have control over how your cat flap operates. Based on yours and your cat's requirements, there is even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with several of the high end models.

If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you have a wooden door on your house in Molesey. Under no circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. This sort of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented odd job men who will be ready to take on such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can not be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling or cutting into any sort of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, along with its insulation properties. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Molesey cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing panel and order a brand new one. This new panel will have a hole cut out as part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This could take a week or so to produce, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. After fabrication, your old glass unit will be taken out, and the new one put in. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as I stated previously, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Molesey.

A project like this will not be expensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your cat has a professionally installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. However, some uPVC doors are steel lined for added security, which could cause issues. A one-piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it may be more economical to swap the panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut into your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can get a cat flap installed within an external wall. Needing considerably more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a specialist, if it is to be executed correctly. You could go with a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model which allows entry through a pillar. A square shaped hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your furry pal can get out of and into the house whenever it desires.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Molesey - If you already have a cat flap installed on your window, door or wall, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. A professional Molesey cat flap installer will be happy to remove your old entry unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, door or wall on which it's mounted.

If the replacement cat flap is being installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must check that the glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. If you discover this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues.
