Cat Flap Fitter Winslow Buckinghamshire (MK18): Putting in a cat flap doesn't only save you the hassle of opening the door every time the cat chooses to stroll out or in, it also affords your cat more independence and boosts it's all round quality of life. Cats are just like people in many ways, and will typically start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept inside for significant periods of time. When permitted quick access to the outside world with , your pet has a better chance of staying healthy and well. So, you think it's a good idea, but what is perfect type of cat flap for your beloved pet?
The most fundamental form of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to keep the elements out, but let the cat pass through. Most cat owners in Winslow would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their house, although this might be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.
This basic design can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it's still a long way off being perfect because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to get into your property.
Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip variation. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and get into or leave your property, thus preventing some unwelcome visitors. Once again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Winslow area who's got a similar collar can easily get into your home. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.
The next stage in feline entrance security is to use a cat flap that recognises your pet's micro-chip. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Whatever cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in position. For added security, most cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that it has the capability to be fully locked, enable only exit from your home, allow only entrance into your property, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This provides full control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. The facility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with your cat's and your requirements is also an option with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.
Installing a cat flap on your own can be quite easy if you have a solid wood door, and reasonable do-it-yourself capabilities. Under no circumstances should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WINSLOW
Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and show them the gate. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation properties as well. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.
It is necessary to get a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Winslow cat flap fitter will measure your current panel and put in an order for the new one. As an integral part of its structure this new double glazing unit will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take one or two weeks to manufacture. When your new glass pane shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" panel. The fitting of your cat flap can then be carried out.
Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, solid wooden door panels are the simplest option with regards to cat flap installation on your house in Winslow. If you're a little hesitant about making a sizeable hole in your door, you may be better off getting in touch with a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This will give you the peace of mind that you will wind up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors are steel lined for added security, which can cause some problems. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not really want to have a hole cut into your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can have a cat flap installed in an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more skill and equipment to install, so it's definitely better left to a professional. Nearly all wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angle access via a pillar is also a possibility. This installation involves a neat square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with a cat flap so your furry friend can enter and exit the house whenever it wants.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Winslow - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a window, door or wall, but it's damaged or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. A reliable cat flap installer in Winslow will be capable of removing the old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one in its place without causing damage to the surrounding door, window or wall.
If the replacement cat flap is to be fitted in a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed correctly. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
