A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A sheet of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to go through, but keep the elements out.

This basic model can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. This means that any animal without one of these special collars can't get into or leave your home. Again this is a fairly simple kind of cat flap, since any other cat in the Bottesford area who's got a similar model of collar could possible gain access to your home. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner. With this, an additional layer of control and security is established to make sure that only your furry friend gains access.

Choosing a cat flap which can identify your cat's own microchip, is the next level in entrance gadgets for felines in Bottesford. You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is close-by, only permitting entry or exit to animals that have a microchip.

Being able to lock it in place is essential no matter which cat flap you're buying. The majority of cat flaps sold currently feature a 4-way locking system. Which means it's got the capability to allow exit only, be fully locked, allow entry into your property only, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This offers complete control over how your cat flap functions both throughout the day and during the night. A few of the more advanced devices can be set to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your requirements.

If you have a wooden door in your home in Bottesford, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. But, if you are looking to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must seek outside help. This sort of installation requires the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who are ready to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, send them packing immediately. New cat flaps can't be mounted into pre-existing double glazing doors or window panels. Drilling holes in any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, as well as its thermal insulation attributes. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Bottesford cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing unit and order a brand new one. As part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This might take a week or so to produce, but it's basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have obtained your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. It will now be possible to fit your cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as stated previously, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Bottesford. It's often safer to call on a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're in any way uncomfortable with making a big hole in your back or front door. This should provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to wind up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the job has been done properly.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It is necessary to know the internal construction, as some door panels can have a steel lining for further security. The easiest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could decide to install the cat flap into an external wall of your house in Bottesford. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more skill and equipment to install, so it's certainly better left to a professional. There are a number of options for this sort of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) configuration. Installation entails a square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on both ends to enable your cat to enter and exit as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Bottesford - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is quite possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. Your cat flap fitter will take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, window or wall, and install a new flap for your cat.

Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that has been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way is essential. If it's found this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.

Are Cat Flaps Good for Cats?

Providing cats with greater independence and freedom, cat flaps prove to be advantageous. Stimulating their natural instincts of exploration and curiosity, these small doors grant your furry friends the freedom to access the outdoors or other designated areas as they please.

Engaging in mental stimulation and regular exercise, cats benefit from cat flaps, promoting their overall well-being. Cat flaps in Bottesford provide a convenient solution for cat owners, sparing them from the constant need to open doors or windows for their pets. It is important to consider certain factors, including the cat's safety from possible outdoor dangers and the potential for unwanted animals to enter the property.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Cat flap weatherproofing is indispensable in upholding the safety and comfort of outdoor and indoor cats. A dry and warm environment for both the feline and the occupants is achieved by a properly weatherproofed cat flap, preventing wind, rain and cold draughts from seeping into the house. Superior quality seals and insulating materials in cat flaps ensure a tight barrier against the elements. In addition, think about installing a weatherproof tunnel extension to shield the entrance from harsh climatic conditions. The cat flap's ability to provide a comfortable and weather-protected space for your cat is upheld through routine maintenance, including checking seals for damage.
