Free Saxmundham Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to give protection from the elements, but permit the cat go through. Even though this could be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door, the vast majority of Saxmundham cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property.

This basic model can be slightly improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, however it's still a long way off being ideal as it enables other creatures or cats to enter your home.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your home unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. Once again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Saxmundham area who has a similar model of collar may be able to get into your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.

The next level in feline access security is to fit a model of cat flap which recognises your cat's own micro-chip. The microchip number is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

No matter what cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in position. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps boast a 4-way locking system these days. Which means that it has the capability to permit exit only, allow admittance into your home only, be locked fully, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This gives complete control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night. The wherewithal to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the more advanced models of cat flap.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid wood door on your Saxmundham home. But, if you are intending to install it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside assistance. These situations require the expertise and skills of a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have all the knowledge and equipment for this sort of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling or cutting into it, and will diminish its insulating attributes, security and strength. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.

A specialist cat flap installer will take measurements of the existing double glazing unit and have a local glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. As part of its structure this new glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take two weeks or so to produce. Once your new glass panel is delivered, the installer will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The cat flap will then be installed.

An undertaking like this will not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your pet has an expertly installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. You'll have to establish what the interior construction of you door actually is, since for added security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it may be advisable to replace this with a single panel.

Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always choose to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your home. Needing a lot more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is certainly better left to a professional, if it's to be accomplished correctly. You could go for a straightforward tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled model which allows access through a pillar. A neat square hole will be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. Each end of the hole is then installed with a cat flap so your feline friend can get in and out of your home whenever it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Saxmundham - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating correctly, the existing hole in your door, window or wall can still be used providing that the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap installer will remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the wall, door or window, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is necessary to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
