Cat Flap Fitter Pembury Kent (TN2): To give your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Pembury property. When continuously kept inside, cats much like people, will get irritated and grouchy. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your cat access to the outside world via a cat flap. So, you think it's a great idea, but which is best sort of cat flap for your pet?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material placed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat go through. The vast majority of Pembury cat owners would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home, although this may be suitable for an outhouse or shed door.
As this solution permits other cats or creatures to enter your house, it is not at all ideal, although it can be improved on somewhat by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires your cat to have a collar that's got either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. This means that any animal without a special collar cannot access or leave your home. The fact that any other moggy in the Pembury area that has a similar style of collar could perhaps get into your house, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. An upgrade to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.
Choosing a cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in access gadgets for felines in Pembury. 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 more than one pet it will take multiple entries. The flap is unfastened when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing access to pets that have a micro-chip.
Whatever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in position. Currently, almost all cat flaps available on the market have a 4-way locking system for extra security. This means that the cat flap can enable exit only, permit only access into your home, be fully locked, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This gives you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. Some more advanced models can be set to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with yours and your pet's requirements.
If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be that difficult, if you have a solid wood door on your Pembury home. Although, if it has to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should under no circumstances even attempt it on your own. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man, who'll have the tools and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN PEMBURY
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap can not be fitted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulation properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.
A professional cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a local glazing company make a new purpose made one. This new panel will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure where the cat flap will be installed. This may take a week or two to manufacture, but it is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have taken possession of your new adapted pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. The installation of the cat flap will then be undertaken.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wooden doors are, as mentioned above, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Pembury. It is usually safer to contact a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, if you're in any way nervous about making a hole in your front or back door. This should give you the peace of mind that you'll wind up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be installed into uPVC doors. You or your installer will need to determine what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for added security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel type.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to have a cat flap fitted into an exterior wall of your house in Pembury, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons. Requiring a lot more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is certainly better left to a specialist, if it is to be completed successfully. You will find there are several choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angular (through pillar) style. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square shaped hole cut out of your wall. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with a cat flap so that your cat can exit and enter your house whenever it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Pembury - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not functioning properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. An experienced Pembury cat flap fitter will gladly remove your old device and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any damage to the wall, door or window on which it is mounted.
If the new cat flap is to be installed in a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must double check that the glass has been made and installed correctly. The panel must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found that this is not the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.
