Cat Flap Fitter Beaconsfield Buckinghamshire (HP9): To allow your cat the independence and freedom that it needs to live a happy life, you could install a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Beaconsfield home. Cats are inclined to get irritated and grumpy when kept inside, and not able to roam free. Allowing your pet accessibility to outside world with a cat flap can help to keep them mentally and physically fit. However, what style of cat flap is better for your circumstances?
The most rudimentry type of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a bendable material is fixed over it to offer protection from the weather. Though this might be suitable for a shed door or fence panel, the majority of Beaconsfield cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property.
This standard model is still a long way from being perfect because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your home, nonetheless it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.
Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or access your house, therefore preventing some unwelcome visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar may be able to gain access to your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices as they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
Having a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in access devices for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is nearby.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in position. Nowadays, almost all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking system for added security. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable access into your home only, enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, or have two-way entry and exit functionality. This offers you choices for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap works. Based on yours and your cat's needs, there is even the possibility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the high end devices.
If you've got a wooden door on your home in Beaconsfield, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it on your own. These types of fittings require a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN BEACONSFIELD
Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazing window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and give them the boot. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not merely the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation properties as well. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.
It will be necessary to get a new double glazing panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Beaconsfield cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current panel and put in an order for the new one. So the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. You may have a 1 or 2 week wait for this special pane to be produced, however if you need a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. Once you have obtained your new glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel installed. It will now be possible to install and set up the cat flap.
External Wooden Doors - The easiest option for cat flap installations in Beaconsfield, as was stated earlier in this article, are solid timber door panels. It's generally better to hire the services of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are dubious about creating a big hole in your door. A project like this will not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your pet will be climbing through an expertly fitted flap.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. You will need to establish what the internal construction of you door is, because for additional security some uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it may be advisable to replace this with a single pane.
Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into a door, you could choose to install the cat flap in an external wall of your home in Beaconsfield. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for considerably more skill and equipment to install, so it is certainly best left to a professional. You'll find there are several possibilities for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) pattern. This installation calls for a neat square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap can then be fitted to each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Beaconsfield - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working correctly, the existing hole in your door, window or wall can still be used providing that the new flap is of an equivalent size. An expert Beaconsfield cat flap installer will gladly remove your old entry device and swap it for a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it's secured.
If the new cat flap is to be fitted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make certain that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately. If it is found this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the pane will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
