Cat Flap Fitter Northfleet Kent (DA11): Fitting a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Northfleet house provides your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a life of contentment. When constantly kept indoors, cats just like humans, will get irritated and grouchy. Allowing your cat access to the world outside by means of a cat flap can also help to keep them physically and mentally fit. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is perfect style of cat flap for your precious pet?
A cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to give protection from the elements, but allow the cat move through. Of course, this is really basic, and will rarely adequate for most cat owners in Northfleet, who would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although it may be suitable for an outhouse or shed door.
This basic model is still a long way from being perfect since it allows other creatures or cats to enter your house, nonetheless it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to wear a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased within it. This means that any animal that does not have a special collar cannot access or leave your property. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar could possible get into your home, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.
The type of cat flap that is can be triggered by your pet's own microchip, is the next level in Northfleet feline access security. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped pets, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is close by.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make certain that it's of a design that can be locked. For added security, most cat flaps boast a four way locking system nowadays. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable admission into your home only, be fully locked, enable exit only, or have two way exit and entry functionality. This will provide you with choices for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap functions. The wherewithal to carry out different functions according to the time of day, and based on your pet's and your requirements is also an option with some of the top-end models of cat flap.
If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, as long as you have a timber door on your Northfleet home. Not in any circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who are happy to undertake such work.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN NORTHFLEET
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and show them the gate. New cat flaps can't be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, together with its thermal insulation attributes. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be done in any circumstances.
A reliable Northfleet cat flap installer will carefully measure up your current pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. This new glazed pane will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its structure where the cat flap will be fitted. This may take two weeks or so to produce, however it's really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to fit your cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest option for new cat flap installations in Northfleet, as was stated earlier, are timber door panels. It's usually advisable to hire the services of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're at all unsure about creating a hole in your front or back door. This should give you the peace of mind that you'll end up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the job has been undertaken correctly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, because some uPVC door panels incorporate a steel lining for added security. The easiest type of installation is in doors with one single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could choose to install your cat flap into an exterior wall of your property. Needing a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely better left to a specialist, if it is to be executed successfully. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angle access via a pillar is also an option. Installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. A cat flap is then installed on both ends of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Northfleet - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not working properly, the existing hole in your window, door or wall can still be used provided that the new flap is of a comparable size. A trustworthy cat flap fitter in Northfleet will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without damaging the door, wall or window.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel must be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
