Cat Flap Fitter Tavistock Devon (PL19): To give your cat the independence and freedom it needs to live a life of contentment, you could fit a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Tavistock property. Cats tend to get grumpy and irritated when kept indoors, and not allowed to roam free. Giving your cat access to the outside world via a cat flap can also help to keep them physically and mentally fit. But, what sort of cat flap is the best solution in your case?
The most fundamental form of cat flap, is just that. A sheet of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Whilst this might be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door, most Tavistock cat owners would doubtless favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property.
This standard model can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being ideal since it enables other creatures or cats a way to enter into your house.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to wear a collar that's got either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your house, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar will be able to access your house, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap that's can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in Tavistock feline entrance security. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. Whenever your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows only your micro-chipped pets to enter/exit.
Being able to lock it in place is essential no matter what cat flap you are buying. Most cat flaps sold these days boast a 4-way locking mechanism. This allows your cat flap to permit entry into your home only, be fully locked, permit only exit from your home, or have two-way exit and entry capability. This gives full control over how your cat flap operates both throughout the day and during the night. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there's even the possibility to perform different functions according to the time of day, with a number of the top-end models.
Installing a cat flap on your own can be really simple if you've got a solid wood door on your Tavistock property, and reasonable do-it-yourself abilities. On no account should you try to fit a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This type of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who are ready to accept such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN TAVISTOCK
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Cutting into any type of double glazing will damage its strength and security, together with its thermal insulation properties. In actual fact, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.
A trustworthy Tavistock cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. As an integral part of its construction this new glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This might take two weeks or so to manufacture, but it's basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. Once your new glass pane arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The installing of the cat flap will then be completed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for installing a new cat flap in Tavistock, as was previously mentioned, are solid timber door panels. It is often safer to bring in an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're in any way hesitant about making a big hole in your door. This type of undertaking won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional provides you with that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for extra security. The easiest type of installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you could get a cat flap installed in an external wall. This type of installation is undoubtedly better left to the pros, since it requires far more equipment and skill to execute. Most wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, however right angle access via a pillar is also an option. A neat square hole will need to be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at either end to permit your feline friend to exit and enter as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Tavistock - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap installed, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. A trusted cat flap fitter in Tavistock will be capable of removing your unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without harming the surrounding wall, door or window.
Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that's been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately is essential. If it's found that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
