Cat Flap Fitter Radstock Somerset (BA3): Installing a cat flap doesn't just save you the trouble of opening the door every time the cat decides to go out or in, it also affords your cat more independence and enhances it's all round quality of life. Rather like humans, when kept indoors, cats will frequently start to show signs of anxiety and frustration. When your precious cat is granted easy access to the outside world by way of a cat flap, there is a better chance of it staying both physically and mentally fit. However, what sort of cat flap is better for your circumstances?
The most basic type of cat flap, is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat pass through. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and will not be sufficient for most cat owners in Radstock, who would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it may be acceptable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.
This basic design can be improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, hence preventing some undesirable visitors. The downside is that any other cat in the Radstock area that's got a similar style of collar might be able to get into your home when using this type of cat flap. An improvement to this product is an RF cat flap/collar system which offers a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.
Installing a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines in Radstock. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is close-by, only permitting exit or entry to pets that are microchipped.
The ability to lock it in place is important regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. For added flexibility, almost all cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism nowadays. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, enable admittance into your home only, enable only exit from your home, or have two-way entry and exit functionality. This gives you a variety of options on precisely how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. In line with yours and your pet's needs, there's even the possibility to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with some of the top-end devices.
If you've got a wood door on your home in Radstock, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. However, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it on your own. These situations require the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have all the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN RADSTOCK
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulation properties as well. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.
A specialist cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazed unit and have a local Radstock glazing firm make a new purpose made one. As part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take two weeks or so to produce. Once you have obtained your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. The cat flap will then be mounted.
External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we mentioned previously, the easiest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Radstock. If you're a little nervous about creating a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be better off getting in touch with a professional cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This sort of undertaking won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional offers you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for added security. The simplest type of installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you could have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires considerably more equipment and skill to install, therefore it's certainly best left to the pros. You'll find there are a number of possibilities for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) configuration. Installation entails a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so that your furry pal can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Radstock - If your door, window or wall already has a cat flap installed, but it is not working properly, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the existing cavity. Your cat flap installer will take off the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding wall, window or door, and install a new flap for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must check that the glass has been made and installed in the right way. The glass pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems, if it becomes obvious this is not the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.
