Cat Flap Fitter Redruth Cornwall (TR15): Fitting a cat flap to an exterior door or wall in your Redruth home provides your cat with the independence and freedom it needs to live a happy life. When kept inside, cats just like people, will get crabby and irritated. Having a cat that is both mentally and physically fit, is just one of the benefits of allowing your furry friend easy access to world outside by means of a cat flap. However, what kind of cat flap is better in your case?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. The majority of Redruth cat owners would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their property, although this might be acceptable for a garden fence panel or shed door.
This standard design is still far from ideal since it allows other creatures or cats to enter into your house, but it can be to some degree improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.
A step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your property, thus preventing some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a relatively basic type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Redruth area who's got a similar collar might be able to gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.
The type of cat flap which is can be operated by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in Redruth feline entrance security. You have to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.
Whichever cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. For added security, nearly all cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means it's got the capability to be locked fully, permit only exit from your home, allow entrance into your house only, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This gives you a range of options on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night time. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.
If you have a wooden door on your home in Redruth, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. 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 it on your own. Such situations call for the expertise and skills of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have all the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN REDRUTH
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, together with its thermal attributes. In reality, it renders your glazing unsound and it should never be done.
A reputable Redruth cat flap fitter will diligently measure up your existing pane and order a custom-made one from a local glazing firm. This new panel will arrive with a hole cut out as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take a week or two to manufacture. After fabrication, the old glass will be taken out, and the brand new one put in. It's now possible to install the cat flap.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as I already mentioned, the simplest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Redruth. If you are a little uncertain about cutting an opening in your door, you may be better off contacting a specialist cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This will provide you with the reassurance that you are going to end up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been carried out properly.
uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some uPVC door panels are steel lined for extra security. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.
Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always choose to install a cat flap in an outside wall of your home in Redruth. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more equipment and expertise to install, therefore it's certainly better left to the pros. There are a number of possibilities for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angular (through pillar) model. This installation entails a neat square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap is then installed on each end of the hole.
Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Redruth - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not working properly, the existing hole in your door, wall or window can be used for a replacement providing the new flap is of a similar size. You local cat flap fitter should be able to take off the old cat flap, without harming the door, wall or window, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.
Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing panel which has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been fabricated, cut and installed in the right way is essential. If it's found that the previous installation was bodged, the pane must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
