Cat Flap Fitter Tadley Hampshire (RG26): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your house in Tadley, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own bit of freedom and independence. When constantly kept inside, cats as with people, will get irritated and grumpy. Having easy access to world outside by means of a cat flap will help your pet to remain fit, both physically and mentally. However, what kind of cat flap is better in your case?
Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. Most Tadley cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although this may be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.
This standard design is still far from ideal since it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter into your home, nonetheless it can be to some degree improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.
Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, because any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar could possible access your home. An improvement to this equipment is an RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.
Picking a cat flap which can identify your pet's microchip, is the next level in entry devices for felines in Tadley. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.
Being able to lock it in place is essential no matter which cat flap you're buying. For extra flexibility, most cat flaps boast a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable only access into your property, be locked fully, permit only exit from your home, or have two-way exit and entrance functionality. This will provide you with choices for all times of day and night, to control exactly how your cat flap works. The ability to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with your cat's and your requirements is also an option with some of the high end models of cat flap.
Fitting a cat flap yourself can be really easy if you have a solid timber door, and respectable do-it-yourself capabilities. Although, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should on no account even attempt to tackle it yourself. This kind of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented handymen who'll be ready to take on such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN TADLEY
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps cannot be installed into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Drilling holes in any type of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, together with its insulating properties. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be done in any circumstances.
A professional cat flap installer will measure up the existing double glazed unit and have a local Tadley glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. So that your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it might take two weeks or so to produce. After construction, the old glass will be taken out, and the new one put in. The installation of your cat flap will then be concluded.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, wooden doors are the simplest option when it comes to cat flap installation on your property in Tadley. If you're nervous about creating a hole in your back or front door, it's it may be better to call in a professional to do the work for you. A project like this should not be expensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your pet has a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. You or your fitter will have to ascertain what the internal construction of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be cheaper to swap the panel for a single panel model.
Wall Installation - It's also possible to have a cat flap installed on an external wall of your house in Tadley, if you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. This kind of installation is certainly best left to a professional, because it requires considerably more skill and equipment to execute. There are several choices for this sort of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. This installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your furry pal can get out of and into your home whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Tadley - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating correctly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement provided that the new cat flap is of a similar size. You local cat flap installer will take off the old cat flap, without damaging the window, door or wall, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
When your cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be important to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. The glass will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
