Cat Flap Fitter Bude Cornwall (EX23): Installing a cat flap to an external wall or door in your Bude house gives your cat the freedom and independence that it needs to live a happy life.

If this sounds like a great idea to you, what style of cat flap should you fit?

The simplest sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to keep the weather out, but let the cat go through. Whilst this could be appropriate for an outhouse door or garden fence panel, the vast majority of Bude cat owners would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house.

This basic design can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other cats or animals to enter into your house.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to open the flap and access or leave your home, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. The downside is that any other cat in the Bude area who's got a similar collar might be able to get into your property when using this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.

Picking a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

Being able to lock it in place is vital regardless which cat flap you are buying. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps feature a 4-way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means that the cat flap can be locked fully, permit exit only, enable only admittance into your property, or be set for two way entry and exit. This provides you with alternatives for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap functions. The ability to carry out different functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with your cat's and your needs is also an option with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.

If you are fairly good at do-it-yourself, putting in your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your house in Bude. But, if you're planning to fit it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you need to seek outside help. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who are delighted to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazed door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them their walking orders. New cat flaps can not be mounted into existing double glazed window or door panels. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not simply the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the insulation properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.

A specialist cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazing unit and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made pane. This new panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap will be installed. This could take one or two weeks to produce, but it is the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've acquired your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. The cat flap will then be fitted.

External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, solid timber door panels are the easiest option in relation to installing a new cat flap on your home in Bude.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many instances. However, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for added security, which could cause issues. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could decide to install the cat flap into an exterior wall of your property. A wall cat flap entrance requires a little more skill and equipment to install, so it is certainly best left to the pros. You can go with a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angle version that permits access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will have to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to enable your feline friend to exit and enter as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Bude - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a wall, window or door, but it's broken or not working properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. An expert Bude cat flap installer will be glad to take off your old unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's mounted.

If the substitute cat flap is being mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must make sure that the glass has been manufactured, cut and installed accurately. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
