Cat Flap Fitter Rye East Sussex (TN31): The installation of a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your property in Rye, will enable it to live a life of contentment and enjoy it's own bit of independence. Cats tend to get crabby and irritated when kept inside, and not allowed to roam free. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main positive aspects of giving your pet accessibility to outside world via a cat flap. But, what sort of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most basic sort of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but let the cat go through. Most Rye cat owners would no doubt favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home, although this could be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This standard design is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other animals or cats a way to enter your property, but it can be slightly improved upon by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.
A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your house unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The downside is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar could possible gain access to your property when using this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the home owner.
A model of cat flap which is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next level in Rye feline access security. 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've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. The flap will be unfastened when your cat is nearby, only permitting exit or entry to animals that have a microchip.
Being able to lock it in place is essential regardless which cat flap you are buying. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. Which means that the cat flap can be fully locked, enable entrance into your property only, enable exit only, or be set for two way entry and exit. This will provide you with a range of options on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the possibility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the more expensive devices.
If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, if you've got a wooden door on your house in Rye. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled handymen who will be glad to accept such work.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN RYE
Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. New cat flaps cannot be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the insulating properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsound.
It is necessary to get a new double glazed panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Rye cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current panel and put in an order for a brand new one. So the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take a couple of weeks to produce. After fabrication, your old glass panel can be taken out, and the new adapted one put in. It's now possible to fit the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, wood door panels are the least complicated alternative with regards to installing a new cat flap on your property in Rye. It's often advisable to contact a professional handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all hesitant about cutting a hole in your door. This kind of project won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed offers you that additional peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many instances. However, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for additional security, which might cause problems. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be cheaper to replace the panel with a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into your door, you could opt to install a cat flap on an external wall of your home in Rye. This type of installation is definitely better left to a professional, since it calls for far more skill and equipment to accomplish. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angle access via a pillar is also possible. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole made into your specified wall. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on both ends to permit your feline friend to come in and out as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Rye - If your window, wall or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's not working, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding door, window or wall, and install a new flap for your cat.
Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazing pane that has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been made and installed correctly is essential. The glass panel will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious that this is not the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
