Stanway Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Stanway Essex (CO3): Fitting a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Stanway home provides your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life. Cats are quite like people in a lot of ways, and will often start to show signs of frustration and anxiety if kept inside for long periods of time without a break. Allowing your pet access to the outside world via a cat flap can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. So, you're sold on the idea, but precisely what is perfect kind of cat flap for your beloved pet?

Free Stanway Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The simplest form of cat flap is basically that. A piece of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. While this may be suitable in a shed or outhouse door, the vast majority of cat owners in Stanway would no doubt prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property.

This uncomplicated design can be somewhat improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other cats or animals to enter your house.

The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or access your home, thus preventing some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Stanway area that has a similar collar may be able to access your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Only your purrfect companion gains access, thus adding an additional layer of control and security.

Fitting a cat flap that can identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in access gadgets for felines in Stanway. You need to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one pet it will take multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.

When you're buying a cat flap, you must make certain it is of a type that can be locked. Nowadays, most cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for added flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit entry into your house only, enable exit only, be fully locked, or have 2-way exit and entry functionality. This gives you a number of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there's even the option to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the top-end devices.

If you are pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, if you've got a wooden door on your Stanway home. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who are glad to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and give them the boot. It's just not possible to install 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 compromises the insulating properties too. In fact, it renders the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

A trustworthy Stanway cat flap fitter will diligently measure up your current pane and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a hole cut out as a part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. This can take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it is the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. As soon as your new glass pane shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. Your cat flap can then be mounted.

External Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as I previously mentioned, the simplest alternatives for cat flap installation in Stanway.

An undertaking like this should not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will be using a professionally installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be installed into uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, as some doors can have a steel lining for added security. The simplest type of installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't really want to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed in an outside wall. This type of installment is undoubtedly better left to an expert, since it requires considerably more equipment and skill to accomplish. You could pick out a straightforward tunnel style, or perhaps a right angle version which allows access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. A suitable cat flap is then fitted to each end of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Stanway - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of a comparable size. A professional Stanway cat flap fitter will be glad to take off your old entry device and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the wall, door or window on which it is attached.

If the new cat flap is to be mounted into a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must check that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.

Cat flaps contribute to the overall well-being of cats by enabling them to engage in regular exercise and mental stimulation. Cat flaps in Stanway provide a convenient solution for cat owners, sparing them from the constant need to open doors for their pets. However, certain considerations should be made, such as the cat's safety from possible dangers outside and the potential for unwelcome animals to enter the property.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Stanway

Cat flap weatherproofing is vitally important in safeguarding the safety and comfort of outdoor and indoor cats. A dry and warm environment for the feline is achieved by a correctly weatherproofed cat flap, preventing draughts, rain and wind from seeping into the house. For a tight barrier against the weather, choose cat flaps with superior quality insulating materials and seals. For shielding the entrance from harsh climatic conditions, an additional idea is to install a weatherproof tunnel extension.
