Cat Flap Fitter Street Somerset (BA16): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your home in Street, will allow it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of independence. Cats are similar to people in many ways, and will frequently show signs of frustration and anxiety if kept inside for long periods of time without a break. Allowing your pet easy access to outside world by means of can also help in keeping them physically and mentally fit. So, you are sold on the idea, but what is perfect sort of cat flap for your precious pet?
The most straightforward form of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a bendable material is placed over it to give protection from the weather. Although this may be acceptable in a fence panel or shed door, the majority of Street cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home.
This basic design can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other cats or animals a means by which to get into your home.
Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. This means that any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot leave or access your house. Again this is a fairly basic type of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar collar will be able to gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these devices as they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.
Fitting a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines. The microchip number is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.
Being able to lock it in position is important no matter what cat flap you're buying. The majority of cat flaps sold currently have a 4-way locking system. This means that the cat flap can permit only entrance into your house, allow exit only, be locked fully, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This provides you with alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap functions. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there is even the possibility to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the more expensive models.
If you've got a timber door in your house in Street, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. But, if you are hoping to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you ought to seek outside assistance. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary skills and equipment.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN STREET
Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps can't be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will damage its security, strength and thermal attributes. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.
A trustworthy Street cat flap fitter will meticulously measure up your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. As part of its structure this new glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted neatly into. You might have a one or two week waiting period for this to be manufactured, however if you want a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. When your new panel of glass is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap can then be installed.
External Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as I mentioned previously, the simplest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Street. If you're a little dubious about cutting a sizeable hole in your front or back door, you might be happier contacting an expert handyman or cat flap fitter instead. This sort of undertaking won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed offers you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which may cause some problems. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it may be easier to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always choose to install your cat flap on an external wall of your home. This sort of installment is certainly better left to a professional, because it calls for much more equipment and skill to execute. There are a number of options for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) style. A square shaped hole will need to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with a cat flap so your furry pal can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Street - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a wall, window or door, but it's broken or not working properly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for installing a replacement. Your cat flap installer will remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, window or door, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
Before fitting a new flap in double glazing that has been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been cut and installed in the right way is essential. The glass panel will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found that this is not the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
