The simplest kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an external door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to offer some protection from the weather. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely sufficient for most cat owners in Broughton, who would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it could be appropriate for a garden fence panel or shed door.

As this solution can allow other animals or cats to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, though it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. The drawback is that any other cat in the area who's got a similar collar can still gain access to your home when using this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier. An added layer of security and control is achieved, guaranteeing that only your feline friend gets access.

Fitting a cat flap that can identify your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in entry security for felines in Broughton. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. The flap is unlocked when your cat is nearby, only allowing entry or exit to animals that have a micro-chip.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps feature a four way locking system nowadays. This means that the cat flap can permit access into your property only, enable exit from your house only, be locked fully, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This provides total control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The ability to perform different functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end brands of cat flap.

If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, as long as you have a solid timber door on your property in Broughton. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These situations call for the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, who is sure to have have the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and give them their walking orders. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazing window or door panels. Any type of double glazed unit will be damaged by cutting into it, and will damage its thermal properties, strength and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

An experienced cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazed pane and have a local glazing company make a new purpose made one. As a part of its structure this new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This can take one or two weeks to produce, but it's the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. After construction, your old glass unit can be removed, and the new modified one put in its place. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.

Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, solid wood doors are the simplest alternative when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your house in Broughton. It is often wise to get in touch with a competent handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are unsure of cutting a hole in your front door. This sort of task won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. Having said that, some uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for extra security, which can cause some problems. A one-piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could elect to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your house in Broughton. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it's certainly better left to a professional. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angled access through a pillar is also a possibility. This installation involves a neat square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your furry pal can exit and enter your house whenever it wants.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Broughton - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your wall, window or door, but it is broken or not working properly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. A reliable cat flap installer in Broughton will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the wall, door or window.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is important to make sure that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. The glass panel will have to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Cat flap weatherproofing is a fundamental aspect of ensuring the well-being and comfort of both outdoor and indoor cats in Broughton. A well-weatherproofed cat flap shields cats from chilly draughts, wind, rain, and extreme temperatures, serving as an effective barrier against the elements. This protective approach has both an impact on their safety and their overall quality of life.

Weatherproofing a cat flap involves selecting the correct materials and design features that can withstand varying weather conditions. To ensure a dry environment, rainwater must not seep indoors, which requires high-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap. The serious discomfort caused by cold draughts can affect the overall contentment and health of cats. Maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature, protecting felines from chilling draughts, and ensuring they remain warm and cosy are all benefits of successful weatherproofing that uses insulating materials.

Weatherproofing is of the utmost importance for cat owners in Broughton whose furry friends are allowed out into the big wide world. A cat's health can be compromised by exposure to cold temperatures, rain or strong winds. A suitably weatherproofed cat flap becomes a crucial lifeline for cats, offering them a safe and comfortable entrance to the house.

Installing a weatherproof tunnel extension alongside the cat flap is one way to provide extra protection. This extension's role as an intermediary zone minimises the direct impact of severe weather on the entrance. It creates a transition space that, over time, gradually brings the cat from the outside environment to the indoor haven. By keeping debris and rainwater away from the immediate vicinity of the cat flap, this tunnel extension also helps to prolong its longevity.

To ensure the cat flap's weatherproofing effectiveness, frequent maintenance is equally necessary. To ensure seals remain intact and functioning properly, thorough inspections for wear and deterioration are essential. Over time, seals can deteriorate due to weather exposure and usage, leading to potential leaks. To guarantee that weatherproofing measures remain dependable and functional, Broughton cat owners must deal with any problems promptly.

In summary, the weatherproofing of cat flaps is a vital concern for all cat owners in Broughton. It directly influences the cat's safety, well-being and comfort, both indoors and outdoors. Safeguarding cats from extreme temperatures, rain and cold draughts, a well-weatherproofed cat flap contributes to their all-round health. Ensuring a cosy and weather-protected space, the cat flap remains effective due to the inclusion of insulating materials and premium-quality seals. Protection against the elements is further increased with the addition of a tunnel extension. With regular maintenance, cat flaps can provide a reliable and durable solution to safeguarding cats' comfort, ensuring they can freely transition between inside and outside environments without compromising their health.
