Bovey Tracey Cat Flap Installation & Repair

Cat Flap Fitter Bovey Tracey Devon (TQ13): Fitting a cat flap to an external door or wall in your Bovey Tracey home helps to give your cat the freedom and independence that it needs to live a life of contentment. When constantly kept indoors, cats as with humans, will get grouchy and irritated. When your cat is granted easy access to the great outdoors via a cat flap, there's a much better chance of it staying both physically and mentally fit and healthy. So, you think it's a great idea, but which is best style of cat flap for your beloved pet?

The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. Even though this may be acceptable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door, the majority of cat owners in Bovey Tracey would doubtless favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their home.

Because this solution can allow other creatures or cats to enter your property, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by keeping the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

The next step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, therefore keeping out some unwelcome visitors. The downside here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar model of collar could perhaps gain access to your property with this type of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The type of cat flap that is can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is close-by, only allowing entry or exit to pets that have a micro-chip.

Whenever you are purchasing a cat flap, you should ensure that it's of a design that can be locked into position. The majority of cat flaps sold today have a four way locking system. This means that it has the capability to be fully locked, enable exit from your property only, enable entry into your premises only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This offers full control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. The ability to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also an option with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be really straightforward if you've got a solid wood door on your Bovey Tracey property, and decent DIY capabilities. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have all the knowledge and equipment for this sort of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing window or door panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and show them the gate. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances.

An experienced cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local Bovey Tracey glazing company make a new purpose made pane. So your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazed panel will be provided with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure. You might have to wait a week or two for this to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to do it. When your new glass panel arrives, the installer will take out the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installing of the cat flap will then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most cases. You'll need to ascertain what the internal construction of you door is, since for additional security some uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be cheaper to replace the panel with a single panel type.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to have a cat flap installed into an external wall of your house in Bovey Tracey, if you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons. This form of installation is undoubtedly best left to a professional, as it requires considerably more skill and equipment to accomplish. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, however right angular access via a pillar is also a possibility. Installation entails a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap is then fitted to both sides of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bovey Tracey - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your door, wall or window, but it is broken or not operating properly, the existing hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a new one. An experienced Bovey Tracey cat flap fitter will be happy to take out your old unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, door or wall on which it's attached.

Before fitting a new flap in double glazing that's been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been made, cut and installed correctly is crucial. If it is found 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 to avoid any security and safety problems.
