Watchet Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Watchet Somerset (TA23): Installing a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Watchet property provides your cat with the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life. Cats tend to get irritated and grouchy when continuously kept indoors, and not allowed to roam free. Having a cat that's both mentally and physically fit, is one of the main benefits of allowing your furry friend easy access to outside world via a cat flap. If this sounds like a good option for you, precisely what form of cat flap should you fit?

The simplest kind of cat flap is basically that. A piece of flexible material fixed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will not be good enough for most Watchet cat owners, who would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their home, although it could be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This standard model is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your home, but it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or get into your property, hence keeping out some unwanted visitors. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Watchet area who has a similar style of collar might be able to access your house when using this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment and can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat. This makes sure that only your feline friend gets access, providing an additional layer of control and security.

The next level in feline entry security is to install the kind of cat flap which recognises your pet's micro-chip. The details of your cat's microchip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is nearby, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.

Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure that it is of a type that can be locked into position. Nowadays, almost all cat flaps on the market boast a four way locking mechanism for added flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can permit only access into your premises, permit exit from your premises only, be fully locked, or be set for two way entry and exit. This will provide you with a variety of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night. The ability to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the high end brands of cat flap.

Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be fairly easy if you've got a solid timber door, and reasonable DIY capabilities. However, if it is going to be installed into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. This kind of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled handymen who'll be ready to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. A new cat flap can't be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Cutting into any kind of double glazing will damage its strength and security, along with its insulating properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

A reputable Watchet cat flap installer will carefully measure up your existing pane and order a purpose made one from a local glazing supplier. As part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. You might have a one or two week wait for this special pane to be made, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed in an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once your new pane of glass is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The installation of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

External Wooden Doors - The simplest option for installing a new cat flap in Watchet, as was mentioned previously, are solid timber door panels. It is normally wise to call on a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are in any way nervous about creating a big hole in your back or front door. This type of undertaking will not be all that expensive and is worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional provides you with that additional peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You or your fitter will have to ascertain what the internal structure of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be more cost effective to replace the panel with a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to have a hole cut in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an outside wall. This type of installment is undoubtedly best left to an expert, since it requires a lot more skill and equipment to accomplish. There are a number of choices for this type of installation, including a straightforward design, or a right angular (through pillar) configuration. This installation calls for a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on both ends to enable your furry pal to enter and exit as it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Watchet - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it is damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a replacement. A specialist Watchet cat flap fitter will gladly take off your old unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's attached.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazed panel which has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way is crucial. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the panel must be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
