Cat Flap Fitter Walton-on-the-Naze Essex (CO14): To provide your cat with the freedom and independence that it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside door or wall in your Walton-on-the-Naze house. Cats which are kept inside, as with humans, will show signs of irritation. Allowing your pet access to the outside world via a cat flap can help to keep them mentally and physically fit. However, what style of cat flap is better in your case?
The most straightforward kind of cat flap, is just that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. The vast majority of Walton-on-the-Naze cat owners would no doubt favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although this could be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door.
As this solution will allow other cats or creatures to enter your house, it is not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced to some degree by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar featuring an IR, RF chip or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, hence keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, since any other moggy in the area that has a similar style of collar can still get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
A cat flap that's can be operated by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will accept multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is nearby.
The ability to lock it in place is vital no matter which cat flap you are purchasing. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system these days. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, permit exit only, enable only entrance into your premises, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This provides you with alternatives for all times of day and night, to control how your cat flap operates. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there is even the option to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the higher end devices.
Installing a cat flap yourself can be quite simple if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable DIY skills. But, if you are looking to fit it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside help. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented handymen who'll be happy to accept such work.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WALTON-ON-THE-NAZE
Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and show them the gate. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling or cutting into it, and will take away its strength, thermal insulation properties and security. Actually, it renders your glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.
A specialist cat flap fitter will measure up your current double glazing pane and have a local glazing firm knock up a new one. As a part of its structure this new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This is the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take one or two weeks to manufacture. Once you've taken possession of your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to install and set up the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as mentioned previously, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Walton-on-the-Naze. If you are a little dubious about cutting an opening in your front door, you may be better off contacting an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This type of undertaking will not be too costly and is really worth doing properly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. Nevertheless, certain uPVC doors are lined with steel for additional security, which may cause some problems. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style door panel, it might be better to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. This type of installment is certainly better left to the pros, because it requires much more equipment and skill to execute. The majority of wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angle access via a pillar is also possible. Installation involves a neat square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap can then be mounted on both ends of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Walton-on-the-Naze - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not operating properly, the current hole in your window, wall or door can be fitted with a replacement so long as the new flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap installer should be able to remove the old cat flap, without damaging the wall, window or door, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.
If the substitute cat flap is being mounted into a pre cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must ensure that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed accurately. The glass pane must be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found that this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
