Cat Flap Fitter Oxted Surrey (RH8): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your house in Oxted, will allow it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. Cats are inclined to get grumpy and irritated when constantly kept inside, and not able to roam. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main positive aspects of allowing your furry friend access to the world outside by means of a cat flap. So, you think it's a great idea, but exactly what is best style of cat flap for your precious pet?
The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A sheet of flexible material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. The vast majority of Oxted cat owners would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although this may be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This standard design is still far from perfect since it allows other cats or animals a way to enter your home, nonetheless it can be marginally improved on with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.
A step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot get into or leave your home. Again this is a pretty basic kind of cat flap, since any other moggy in the area that's got a similar style of collar may be able to access your house. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier.
Picking a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next level in access devices for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and allows solely your micro-chipped pets to use the entrance/exit.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in position. For added security, most cat flaps boast a 4-way locking mechanism these days. Which means that the cat flap can permit exit from your property only, permit only admittance into your house, be fully locked, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This will provide you with a number of options on precisely how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. The facility to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also a possibility with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.
If you've got a timber door in your home in Oxted, fitting a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. But, if you are planning to fit it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you must seek outside assistance. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN OXTED
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can not be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel.

The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should not be attempted in any circumstances.
A reputable Oxted cat flap fitter will meticulously take the measurements of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take two weeks or so to produce. As soon as your new panel of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. It's now possible to install and set up your new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many cases. Nevertheless, certain uPVC doors are steel lined for added security, which may cause some problems. The models of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.
