Cat Flap Fitter Wadhurst East Sussex (TN5): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Wadhurst home. When constantly kept inside, cats just like people, will get irritated and grumpy. Giving your furry friend accessibility to world outside with a cat flap can help to keep them mentally and physically fit. If this sounds like a good idea to you, what kind of cat flap should you choose?
The most basic kind of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is hung over it to give protection from the weather. While this could be suitable in an outhouse door or garden fence panel, the vast majority of Wadhurst cat owners would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property.
As this option allows other animals or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a little by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.
The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring an RF chip, IR or magnet. No animal will be able to leave or get into your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. Again this is a pretty basic kind of cat flap, because any other cat in the Wadhurst area who has a similar style of collar may be able to get into your property. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.
A cat flap that is can be recognised by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.
When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make certain it's of a design that can be locked. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that the cat flap can enable only exit from your home, enable only admittance into your property, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This provides complete control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. Some of the top-end devices can be set to perform specific functions according to the time of day, in line with your pet's and your requirements.
If you are pretty decent at DIY, fitting a cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, as long as you have a solid wood door on your house in Wadhurst. Under no circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This kind of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who will be ready to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WADHURST
Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazing will be damaged by cutting into it, and will diminish its thermal insulation properties, security and strength. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.
A reliable Wadhurst cat flap installer will carefully take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a purpose made one from a local glazing company. So that your cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new glazed panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. This might take a week or more to produce, however it's the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. As soon as your new pane of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for cat flap installations in Wadhurst, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are wood door panels. If you're hesitant about making a hole in your back or front door, it's probably a good idea to contact a specialist to undertake the project for you. This will give you the satisfaction of knowing that you will finish up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been done properly.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. Nevertheless, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for extra security, which may cause some issues. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to have a cat flap installed into an outside wall of your property in Wadhurst, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons. Calling for far more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is undoubtedly better left to the pros, if it is to be completed successfully. You could pick out a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle version which allows entry through a pillar. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your specified wall. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at both ends to allow your furry pal to enter and exit as it wishes.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Wadhurst - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole in your door, wall or window can be used for a replacement provided that the new flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap installer should be able to remove the old cat flap, without harming the surrounding wall, door or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
If the new cat flap is to be installed in a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must make sure that the existing glass has been cut and installed correctly. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel will have to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
