Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a flexible material is fixed over it to give a bit of protection from the elements.

This simple model can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, however it's still a long way from being ideal as it allows other cats or animals to get into your house.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your house unless it's fitted with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar style of collar can still get into your property when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier. With this, an additional layer of security and control is established to ensure that only your feline friend gets access.

The next level in feline entry security is to fit the type of cat flap which recognises your cat's own microchip. The number of your cat's micro-chip is entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). The flap is unfastened when your cat is in close proximity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a micro-chip.

This offers you options for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap functions. The facility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements is also a possibility with some of the more advanced models of cat flap.

Fitting a cat flap yourself can be really straightforward if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable do-it-yourself capabilities. But, if you are hoping to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you ought to ask for outside assistance. This sort of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled handymen who'll be glad to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be mounted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it compromises the insulation properties too. In actual fact, it renders the glazing unsafe and it should never be done.

A trustworthy Coggeshall cat flap installer will carefully get the dimensions of your existing unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing firm. As a part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This could take a week or so to manufacture, however it's the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. After fabrication, your old glass unit will be taken out, and the new adapted one put in its place. It will now be possible to fit your cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, as some door panels are steel lined for additional security. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slatted pane for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you can have a cat flap installed in an outside wall. Requiring far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap install is certainly better left to a professional, if it is to be executed successfully. You'll find there are a number of possibilities for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) style. Installation entails a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap is then mounted on each side of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Coggeshall - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a wall, window or door, but it is damaged or not working properly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, door or window, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.

When your installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be necessary to make sure that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new cat flap. The glass pane will have to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found this isn't the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.

To ensure the comfort and safety of both outdoor and indoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing is essential. A cat flap that is well-weatherproofed prevents draughts, rain and wind from seeping into the house, ensuring a warm and dry environment for both the feline and the occupants. For a tight barrier against the elements, choose cat flaps with high-quality seals and insulating materials. In addition, the entrance can be shielded from harsh weather conditions by installing a weatherproof tunnel extension. Ensuring the cat flap remains effective in providing a weather-protected and comfortable space for your cat requires regular maintenance, including checking seals for deterioration.
