Cat Flap Fitter Ottery St Mary Devon (EX11): To provide your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Ottery St Mary home. When constantly kept indoors, cats just like humans, will get grumpy and irritated. Having access to the world outside with a cat flap will help your pet to remain fit, both mentally and physically. So, you are sold on the idea, but precisely what is perfect type of cat flap for your precious pet?
The simplest sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a bendable material is placed over it to offer a bit of protection from the weather. Whilst this may be suitable for an outhouse or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Ottery St Mary would no doubt favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house.
Since this option will allow other cats or creatures to enter your house, it is not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
The next step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, thus keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar could possible access your property. An enhancement to this equipment is an RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.
Choosing a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped animals, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is in the vicinity.
Whenever you're buying a cat flap, you should make certain it's of a type that can be locked. Currently, nearly all cat flaps on the market boast a four way locking system for extra flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit only access into your premises, be fully locked, enable exit only, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This will provide you with alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap operates. A few more expensive devices can be programmed to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's requirements.
If you've got a wooden door on your property in Ottery St Mary, putting in a cat flap yourself should not be too difficult. But, if you're looking to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you must seek outside help. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN OTTERY ST MARY
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. A new cat flap can't be installed into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling holes in any type of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, along with its thermal properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A specialist cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazing unit and have a local Ottery St Mary glazing firm knock up a new purpose made pane. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure where your cat flap will be fitted. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this pane to be manufactured, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed in an existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you have acquired your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. It's now possible to fit your new cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest alternative for new cat flap installations in Ottery St Mary, as was previously mentioned, are solid timber door panels. If you are a bit nervous about cutting a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you may be better off getting in touch with a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This type of project will not be too expensive and is well worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the interior construction, because some uPVC door panels can have a steel lining for additional security. A one-piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be cheaper to swap the panel for a single panel type.
Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more skill and equipment to install, so it is certainly better left to a professional. Most cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnel style, however right angle access through a pillar is also an option. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole made into your wall. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to permit your furry pal to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Ottery St Mary - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not working correctly, the current hole in your door, window or wall can be used for a replacement so long as the new cat flap is of a comparable size. You local cat flap fitter should be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
If the new cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make certain that the glass has been cut and installed correctly. If it becomes obvious this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
