Cat Flap Fitter Rochford Essex (SS4): The installation of a cat flap to an exterior wall or door in your home in Rochford, will enable it to live a happy life and enjoy it's own little bit of freedom and independence. When kept indoors, cats just like humans, will get grouchy and irritated. Allowing your pet easy access to world outside via a cat flap can also help keep them physically and mentally fit. So, you are sold on the idea, but exactly what is perfect form of cat flap for your pet?
The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat move through. The majority of Rochford cat owners would prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this may be suitable for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.
Because this solution will allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it isn't at all recommended, though it can be improved on a little by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. The reality that any other moggy in the Rochford area that has a similar model of collar may be able to get into your property, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.
Choosing a cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's own microchip, is the next level in access devices for felines in Rochford. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Whenever your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows only your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.
Being able to lock it in place is essential whichever cat flap you're purchasing. Most cat flaps sold currently boast a four way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can enable exit from your house only, enable only entrance into your house, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This will provide you with alternatives for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap functions. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there is even the possibility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the high end devices.
If you are pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, as long as you've got a timber door on your Rochford home. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. These situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, who will have the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation project.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ROCHFORD
Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.
A specialist cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazing unit and have a local Rochford glazing company knock up a new one. As a part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. This is the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take a week or so to manufacture. Once you've obtained your new adapted pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new one installed. The installing of your cat flap can then be carried out.
External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for cat flap installations in Rochford, as was stated earlier, are timber door panels. It is generally best to contact a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are at all uncomfortable with making a hole in your door. This should provide you with the reassurance that you will finish up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been carried out correctly and without causing harm to your door.
uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. Nevertheless, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for further security, which might cause issues. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more expertise and equipment to install, so it's definitely best left to the pros. Nearly all wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square shaped hole neatly cut out of your wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on either end to allow your furry pal to enter and exit as it pleases.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Rochford - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not working correctly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing that the new cat flap is of a similar size. Your cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, window or door, and install a new flap for your cat.
If the replacement cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must ensure that the glass has been made and installed correctly. If you discover this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the pane will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
