Cat Flap Fitter Warsash Hampshire (SO31): To allow your cat the independence and freedom it needs to live a life of contentment, you could install a cat flap to an outside wall or door in your Warsash house. When constantly kept indoors, cats as with people, will get irritated and grouchy. Having easy access to outside world via a cat flap will help your pet to keep fit, both physically and mentally. However, what type of cat flap is the best solution for your situation?
A cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to give protection from the weather, but permit the cat move through. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be adequate for most cat owners in Warsash, who would no doubt favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house, although it might be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.
As this option permits other cats or creatures to enter your home, it's not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced to some extent by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.
A step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the Warsash area who has a similar model of collar can easily gain access to your home when using this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier.
The next level in feline access security is to consider a model of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is nearby.
When you're buying a cat flap, you should ensure that it is of a type that can be locked into position. For extra flexibility, nearly all cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism these days. Which means that the cat flap can permit exit only, permit only admittance into your house, be locked fully, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This offers you a range of options on precisely how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night. A few of the more expensive devices can be programmed to perform different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your needs.
If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you have a wooden door on your Warsash home. But, if you're hoping to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you ought to ask for outside assistance. This sort of installation will require the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who'll be happy to take on such a task.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WARSASH
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and request that they leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Any sort of double glazing will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will take away its security, thermal insulation properties and strength. Actually, it renders your glazing unsafe and it should never be attempted.
A specialist cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a local Warsash glazing firm knock up a new one. As part of its structure this new double glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this special pane to be produced, however if you need a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. After fabrication, your old glass unit can be taken out, and the brand new one put in. The installation of your cat flap can then be completed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, timber door panels are the easiest alternative in relation to cat flap installation on your house in Warsash. If you're uncertain about making a hole in your door, it's it may be better to contact a professional to complete the task for you. This type of undertaking won't be too expensive and is well worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that added reassurance.
uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be fitted into uPVC doors. Nevertheless, some uPVC doors are steel lined for extra security, which may cause some issues. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap installed on an exterior wall of your property in Warsash, if you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely better left to an expert. Most wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angular access via a pillar is also possible. This installation involves a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to permit your feline friend to come in and out as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Warsash - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole in your door, window or wall can still be used so long as the new flap is of an equivalent size. You local cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
If the new cat flap is to be installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must check that the glass has been made and installed correctly. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems with the new cat flap.
