Cat Flap Fitter Paignton Devon (TQ3): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Paignton, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. Cats that are kept inside, much like people, can often show signs of frustration. Giving your cat easy access to outside world via a cat flap can help keep them physically and mentally fit. But, what sort of cat flap is best for your circumstances?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A sheet of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. Most cat owners in Paignton would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although this could be appropriate for a fence panel or shed door.
This simple design is still far from ideal since it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter your home, nevertheless it can be improved on to some degree by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.
Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. This means that any animal that doesn't have one of these special collars can't leave or get into your house. Once again this is a fairly basic kind of cat flap, as any other cat in the Paignton area who's got a similar model of collar might be able to get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.
Installing a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in entrance devices for felines in Paignton. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit are only possible for micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.
Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in place. Currently, the majority of cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for added security. Which means it has the capability to enable admittance into your property only, be locked fully, allow only exit from your home, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This provides complete control over how your cat flap operates both throughout the day and during the night time. The ability to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's needs is also an option with some of the higher end models of cat flap.
If you've got a wood door on your property in Paignton, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult. However, if it needs to be installed into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This type of installation will require the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented carpenters who'll be happy to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN PAIGNTON
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be installed in a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and give them the boot. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any kind of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, as well as its insulation properties. The truth is, it renders the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be done.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazed panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Paignton cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing pane and put in an order for a brand new one. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This can take one or two weeks to manufacture, but it's basically the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have taken possession of your new modified glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. The installation of your cat flap will then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as I stated previously, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Paignton. If you're unsure about making a hole in your door, it's wise to call an expert to complete the task for you. This should provide you with the reassurance that you'll end up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the project has been completed properly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, because some uPVC doors are lined with steel for additional security. A one-piece panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be less expensive to exchange this panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always opt to install the cat flap on an exterior wall of your home. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more skill and equipment to install, so it's certainly better left to an expert. You'll find there are a number of options for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) style. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your wall. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so that your feline friend can exit and enter the house whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Paignton - If you already have a cat flap installed on your door, wall or window, but it's damaged or not functioning properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a new one. Your cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the wall, door or window, and fit a new flap for your cat.
When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be necessary to check that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new flap. If it is found this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
