Free West Kingsdown Cat Flap Fitting Quotes

The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material fixed over it, to give protection from the weather, but let the cat pass through it. Naturally, this is very basic, and won't be sufficient for most West Kingsdown cat owners, who would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although it could be suitable for an outhouse or shed door.

This basic model is still a long way off being perfect because it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter your property, nonetheless it can be improved on a little by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar fitted with a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your property, hence keeping out some undesirable visitors. Again this is a pretty basic type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the area who has a similar model of collar will be able to get into your house. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline entrance security is to install a cat flap which recognises your cat's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your microchipped pets to enter or exit.

Being able to lock it in position is important no matter what cat flap you're purchasing. Nowadays, most cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for extra security. Which means that it has the capability to permit exit only, enable entrance into your house only, be fully locked, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This will give you a number of alternatives on how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. The ability to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on your pet's and your requirements is also a possibility with some of the high end models of cat flap.

Fitting a cat flap on your own can be fairly simple if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable DIY abilities. Under no circumstances should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have the knowledge and equipment for this sort of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling holes in any sort of double glazing will damage its strength and security, as well as its thermal properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local West Kingsdown cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current panel and put in an order for the new one. So that your cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazing pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you have received your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. Your cat flap can then be put in.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wooden doors are, as I already mentioned, the easiest options for cat flap installation in West Kingsdown. It is often wise to call on an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're in any way uncertain about creating a hole in your back or front door. This type of undertaking won't be all that expensive and is worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that additional reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. Nonetheless, certain uPVC door panels are lined with steel for further security, which can cause some problems. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted style door panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can get a cat flap installed on an external wall. Requiring far more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly better left to the pros, if it's to be accomplished correctly. You could choose a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled model that allows access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to allow your furry friend to come in and out as it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in West Kingsdown - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a wall, door or window, but it is broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for installing a replacement. A trusted cat flap fitter in West Kingsdown will be capable of removing the old cat flap, and fix a brand new one as a replacement without harming the door, window or wall.

If the new cat flap is going to be fitted in a pre cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make sure that the glass has been made and installed correctly. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
