Cat Flap Fitter Snodland Kent (ME6): Installing a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Snodland property allows your cat the independence and freedom it needs to live a life of contentment. Cats kept inside, as with people, will show signs of frustration. Having a cat that's both physically and mentally fit, is one of the main benefits of giving your pet accessibility to world outside by means of a cat flap. So, you're sold on the idea, but exactly what is best kind of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material placed over it, to give protection from the elements, but let the cat move through. While this could be acceptable in an outhouse door or fence panel, the vast majority of cat owners in Snodland would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property.
As this option can allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, although it can be improved on somewhat by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.
A step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that doesn't have one of these special collars can't get into or leave your home. The fact that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your house, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.
The kind of cat flap that's can be triggered by your pet's own microchip, is the next level in feline access security. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Entry and exit are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is nearby.
Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. For extra security, nearly all cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, enable exit only, permit only access into your property, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This offers you options for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap functions. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and based on your cat's and your needs is also an option with some of the high end models of cat flap.
If you are fairly decent at DIY, fitting your own cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you've got a wooden door on your home in Snodland. However, if it is going to be installed into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you shouldn't even attempt it yourself. These sorts of fixtures call for a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN SNODLAND
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and give them their walking orders. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the insulating attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.
It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Snodland cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current unit and order a brand new one. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This could take a week or more to produce, however it's basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have received your new pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new panel fitted. The installing of your cat flap can then be undertaken.
External Wooden Doors - Solid wooden door panels are, as we mentioned previously, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Snodland. It is often best to hire the services of a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are in any way nervous about cutting a big hole in your front door. This sort of undertaking will not be all that expensive and is worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. You or your installer will need to find out what the interior construction of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could have a cat flap installed within an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more skill and equipment to install, so it's definitely better left to a professional. You'll find there are several choices for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) configuration. A square hole will have to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can exit and enter your home whenever it wants.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Snodland - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. You local cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding window, door or wall, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the new cat flap is going to be installed in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make sure that the glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. The panel will need to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
