The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a flexible material is hung over it to offer some protection from the weather. The vast majority of Birchington-on-Sea cat owners would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their house, although this could be okay for a fence panel or shed door.

As this solution will allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some extent by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

The next step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. No animal will be able to leave or access your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar could perchance gain access to your house with this sort of cat flap fitted. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system having a user programmed unique identifier. Providing an extra layer of control and security, this makes sure that only your purrfect companion gets access.

The next step-up in feline access security is to consider the kind of cat flap which recognises your cat's microchip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped animals, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.

When you are purchasing a cat flap, you should ensure that it's of a design that can be locked. Nowadays, most cat flaps on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for added security. Which means it has the capability to be fully locked, permit only exit from your home, enable only admittance into your property, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This provides you with a number of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap works any time of the day and night time. Some of the more advanced cat flaps can be programmed to perform particular functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your requirements.

If you're fairly good at DIY, installing a cat flap should not be all that difficult, as long as you've got a timber door on your Birchington-on-Sea home. But, if you are planning to install it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you must seek outside help. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps can't be fitted into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Drilling or cutting into any kind of double glazing will damage its security and strength, as well as its insulating properties. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it shouldn't be attempted under any circumstances.

An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a glazing company make a new one. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it may take a couple of weeks to manufacture. Once you have acquired your new pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. It will now be possible to install the cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for new cat flap installations in Birchington-on-Sea, as was stated earlier, are timber door panels. It's normally safer to employ the expert services of a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're uncomfortable with cutting a hole in your front or back door. This sort of project will not be too expensive and is worthwhile doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many cases. It pays to know the internal construction, as some uPVC doors are steel lined for further security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it might be better to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to have a hole cut in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you can get a cat flap installed within an external wall. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it's definitely best left to an expert. You'll find there are several possibilities for this installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) model. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole cut into your selected wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to permit your cat to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Birchington-on-Sea - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working correctly, the existing hole in your window, wall or door can be used for a replacement providing the new cat flap is of a comparable size. Your cat flap installer should be able to take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding window, wall or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

Before fitting the new cat flap in double glazing that's been pre-cut, making certain that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way is essential. The glass panel will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems, if it's found this is not the case and corners were cut in the original installation.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Birchington-on-Sea

Important for the well-being and safety of both outdoor and indoor cats, weatherproofing the cat flap is essential. A cat flap that is properly weatherproofed prevents wind, rain and draughts from seeping into the house, ensuring a warm and dry environment for the feline. To create a tight barrier against the weather, search for cat flaps designed with superior quality seals and insulating materials. An extra option to shield the entryway from harsh weather conditions is the installation of a weatherproof tunnel extension. The cat flap's ability to provide a weather-protected and cosy space for your cat is upheld through regular maintenance, including checking seals for damage and deterioration.
