The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A sheet of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. Of course, this is extremely basic, and won't be good enough for most Bognor Regis cat owners, who would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it could be suitable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This simple design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other animals or cats a way to get into your home, however it can be improved on to some degree by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with an RF chip, IR or magnet. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a fairly basic kind of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar could perchance gain access to your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products because they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Your feline friend is the sole one to get access, offering an added layer of security and control.

Installing a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in access devices for felines in Bognor Regis. The microchip number is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits just your microchipped pets to enter/exit.

The ability to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. Currently, most cat flaps on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for extra security. Which means that it has the capability to be locked fully, permit only exit from your home, enable admittance into your home only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This provides full control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the 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 an option with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.

If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid wood door on your house in Bognor Regis. But, if you're hoping to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must seek outside help. This kind of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who are delighted to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing window or door panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and give them the boot. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the glazing, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.

An experienced cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new pane. This new pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure where the cat flap can be installed. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take one or two weeks to manufacture. After fabrication, the old glass will be removed, and the brand new one put in. It will now be possible to install the cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, wood doors are the least complicated option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your house in Bognor Regis. If you are a little unsure about cutting a sizeable hole in your door, you might be better off bringing in a professional handyman or cat flap fitter instead. A project of this sort is comparatively inexpensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will be climbing through a professionally installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, because some door panels are lined with steel for extra security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be better to replace this with a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not want to cut a hole in your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you could have a cat flap installed in an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it is definitely best left to an expert. The majority of cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angular access through a pillar is also an option. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole made into your wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to enable your feline friend to enter and exit as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bognor Regis - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of a similar size. An experienced Bognor Regis cat flap installer will be happy to remove your old entry device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the window, door or wall on which it is secured.

When your cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. If it is found this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass panel must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.

Cat flaps offer a number of benefits for both cats and their owners:

  1. Less Litter Box Odours: The ability to relieve themselves outdoors could lead your cat to use the litter box less often, resulting in fewer cleanings and potentially a reduction in unpleasant litter box smells within your dwelling.
  2. Less Door Scratching: Frustration from waiting to be let in and out can lead to destructive scratching behaviour near doors. Cat flaps provide an alternative entry and exit point, potentially reducing this undesired behaviour.
  3. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps remove the necessity of continual supervision and door operation for your cat, thereby diminishing stress for both you and your feline companion, who can come and go without requiring your help.
  4. Enhanced Security: Many cat flaps are equipped with locking mechanisms that can be set to allow entry only to specific cats or to keep unwanted visitors out. This feature enhances home security by preventing the entry of stray animals or potential threats.
  5. Convenience for Owners: Owners are relieved of the need to halt their daily activities to manage their cats' indoor or outdoor access. This convenience holds significant value for those with demanding lifestyles or unsystematic schedules.
  6. Better Control: Programmable advanced cat flaps, which can be aligned with your cat's microchip or a distinct collar tag, guarantee that only your cat utilises the flap, giving you total command over their entrances and exits.
  7. Independence for Cats: By allowing access to the outdoors, exercise, and a means to satisfy their innate curiosity, cat flaps cater to the independent nature of cats, boosting their happiness and improving their health.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Bognor Regis

Although a cat flap enhances pets’ freedom of movement in a home, it necessitates addressing the challenges associated with energy efficiency and ensuring the home is weatherproof. Ensuring the well-being of both pets and property owners, the unpredictable climate of the UK demands measures that protect from the cold and dampness. Preventing draughts and moisture penetration with insulating materials and magnetic seals, advanced cat flaps are key, designed specifically for weatherproofing.

In weatherproofing a cat flap, the importance of installation is as significant as the selection of the correct product. Using waterproof sealants and insulating materials for adequate sealing around the cat flap can greatly improve its resistance to severe weather conditions.

Investing in a high-quality, weatherproof cat flap is a wise decision for pet owners in Bognor Regis who are looking to combine convenience with energy efficiency. By opting for a model that can withstand the UK's weather conditions and making sure it's properly installed, property owners are ensured a pet-friendly environment that is both warm and energy-efficient.
