Cat Flap Fitter Tadley Hampshire (RG26): Installing a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Tadley property gives your cat the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life. Cats are just like people in a lot of ways, and will likely start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for significant periods of time. When granted instant access to the great outdoors with a cat flap, your pet has a much better chance of staying healthy and fit. If you elect to go down the cat flap route, your next decision will be what sort of cat flap would be best.
The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A sheet of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. Most cat owners in Tadley would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their house, although this might be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.
As this option allows other cats or animals to enter your house, it is not at all ideal, although it can be improved on a little by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your house unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The fact that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar model of collar could perhaps access your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
Picking a cat flap that can identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.
Being able to lock it in place is important no matter what cat flap you are purchasing. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps boast a four way locking system these days. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, enable entry into your home only, permit only exit from your home, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This gives complete control over how your cat flap operates both throughout the day and during the night. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the option to perform different functions according to the time of day, with some of the higher end devices.
If you've got a wood door on your home in Tadley, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it needs to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt it by yourself. This kind of installation calls for the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who will be delighted to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN TADLEY
Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. New cat flaps cannot be installed into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any type of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its strength, thermal properties and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Tadley cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing pane and order a brand new one. So that the cat flap can be snugly fitted into it, this new double glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. You may have to wait a week or two for this to be produced, however if you need a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once you've taken possession of your new glass pane, the old unit can be removed and the new one installed. It's now possible to install and set up the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for installing a new cat flap in Tadley, as was stated earlier, are solid wood doors. It's normally best to contact a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are at all dubious about creating a big hole in your front door. This kind of project will not be too costly and is well worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap professionally installed offers you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it might be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut holes in your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can get a cat flap installed on an outside wall. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it is certainly better left to an expert. The majority of wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angular access through a pillar is also an option. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly made into your wall. A suitable cat flap is then mounted on each side of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Tadley - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working properly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement as long as the new cat flap is of a comparable size. An expert Tadley cat flap installer will be glad to take out your old entry device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the door, wall or window on which it is attached.
Before fitting the new cat flap in double glazing that's been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made and installed accurately is essential. If it becomes obvious that this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass pane must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
