Cat Flap Fitter Princes Risborough Buckinghamshire (HP27): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Princes Risborough house provides your cat with the independence that it needs to live a happy life. Cats are inclined to get irritated and grumpy when continuously kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of giving your pet easy access to outside world with a cat flap. But, what sort of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most fundamental sort of cat flap, is simply that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but allow the cat pass through it. The vast majority of Princes Risborough cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although this might be suitable for a shed or outhouse door.
This standard design is still a long way from being perfect since it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter into your house, however it can be improved on a little by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
A step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your house unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar collar could possible access your house when using this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.
The kind of cat flap which is capable of identifying your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in feline entrance security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is nearby.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure it is of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold nowadays boast a 4-way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can be locked fully, allow only entry into your house, enable exit only, or be set for two way entry and exit. This gives complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there is even the option to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with some of the top-end devices.
If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you've got a wooden door on your Princes Risborough home. However, if it is going to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt it on your own. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN PRINCES RISBOROUGH
Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.
A reputable Princes Risborough cat flap installer will meticulously get the dimensions of your current panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. To ensure that the cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new double glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This can take a week or so to produce, however it's really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've received your new pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new panel installed. It will now be possible to fit the new cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for cat flap installations in Princes Risborough, as was stated earlier, are solid wooden door panels. It's generally best to hire the services of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are unsure of cutting a hole in your front door. This should provide you with the peace of mind that you are going to finish up with an expertly fitted cat friendly flap, and that the job has been accomplished in the right and proper way.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nonetheless, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for added security, which might cause problems. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed in an external wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more equipment and skill to fit, therefore it's definitely better left to a professional. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnel style, however right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. Installation calls for a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap can then be installed on both sides of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Princes Risborough - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not working properly, the current hole in your wall, door or window can still be used provided that the new cat flap is of a similar size. An experienced Princes Risborough cat flap installer will be glad to take out your old unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's mounted.
If the replacement cat flap is being fitted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. The glass pane will need to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if you discover this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
