Cat Flap Fitter Petersfield Hampshire (GU31): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a happy life, you could fit a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Petersfield property. Cats kept indoors, just like people, will show signs of irritation. Having a cat that is both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your furry friend access to the world outside by means of a cat flap. However, what form of cat flap is most suitable for your situation?
The most basic sort of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible bit of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but allow the cat move through. Whilst this could be appropriate in an outhouse door or fence panel, most Petersfield cat owners would favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.
As this solution permits other animals or cats to enter your home, it's not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
The next step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and access or leave your house, thus avoiding some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, since any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar might be able to get into your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these devices because they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
The next level in feline access security is to consider the type of cat flap which recognises your cat's own micro-chip. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you've got more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked whenever your cat is in close proximity, only permitting access to animals that are microchipped.
Being able to lock it in place is important regardless of what cat flap you are buying. These days, almost all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking system for extra flexibility. This allows your cat flap to permit admittance into your home only, be fully locked, permit exit from your premises only, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This offers you a number of choices on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. The ability to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements is also an option with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.
If you are fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid wood door on your house in Petersfield. But, if you're planning to install it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside help. This kind of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who are delighted to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN PETERSFIELD
Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them packing immediately. It's simply not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its strength, insulating attributes and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.
A trustworthy Petersfield cat flap installer will carefully take the measurements of your existing unit and order a purpose made one from a local glazing company. As part of its structure this new double glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a couple of weeks to manufacture. When your new panel of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap will then be concluded.
External Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, wooden doors are the easiest option with regards to installing a new cat flap on your house in Petersfield. If you are uncomfortable with making a hole in your front or back door, it's probably a good idea to call on a professional to do the job for you. An undertaking like this will not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat will be using an expertly installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your fitter will have to establish what the interior structure of you door is, since for additional security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. The simplest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - It is also possible to get a cat flap mounted into an external wall of your home in Petersfield, if you do not want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more expertise and equipment to install, so it is definitely better left to a specialist. You could choose a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle version which permits access via a pillar. Installation entails a square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to enable your feline friend to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Petersfield - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not working properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement so long as the new cat flap is of a similar size. An experienced Petersfield cat flap installer will be glad to take off your old entry device and replace it with a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it is attached.
If the new cat flap is to be fitted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must double check that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If you discover that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
