The most basic kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material placed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but let the cat move through. Of course, this is very basic, and won't be adequate for most cat owners in Farsley, who would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their home, although it may be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

Since this solution permits other cats or creatures to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. No animal will be able to get into or leave your home unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The drawback here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your house when using this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier. With this, an additional layer of control and security is established to make certain that only your purrfect companion gains access.

The type of cat flap that's can be operated by your cat's micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline entry security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). The flap is unlocked anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing access to animals that are microchipped.

Being able to lock it in place is vital regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. Most cat flaps sold currently have a four way locking system. Which means it has the capability to enable exit only, allow admission into your house only, be fully locked, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This gives you choices for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap operates. The wherewithal to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.

If you're pretty decent at do-it-yourself, putting in your own cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, if you've got a wooden door on your property in Farsley. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. This kind of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented odd job men who will be glad to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them on their way. It's just not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

A specialist cat flap fitter will measure up your current double glazing pane and have a local Farsley glazing company knock up a new pane. As part of its structure this new double glazing pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed snugly into. This might take two weeks or so to produce, however it is basically the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have received your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new unit fitted. The cat flap will then be fitted.

External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Farsley, as was mentioned previously, are wood door panels.

This sort of project will not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat has an expertly installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. You or your fitter will need to establish what the interior construction of you door is, because for additional security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be less expensive to swap the panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an outside wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more equipment and expertise to install, therefore it is certainly better left to an expert. The majority of wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angular access via a pillar is also possible. This installation involves a square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to permit your furry pal to exit and enter as it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Farsley - If your door, wall or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A good cat flap fitter in Farsley will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without damaging the door, wall or window.

If the replacement cat flap is being installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must double check that the glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.

  1. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps eliminate the need for constant monitoring and door opening for your cat, reducing stress for both you and your pet. Cats can exit and enter without waiting for your assistance.
  2. Independence for Cats: Known for their independent nature, cats benefit from cat flaps as they allow exploration of the outdoors, exercise, and the satisfaction of curiosity at their own leisure, leading to a healthier, happier life.
  3. Enhanced Security: A variety of cat flaps are designed with locks that can be programmed to allow access solely to specific cats, thereby excluding unwanted guests. This enhances the security of the home by impeding the incursion of stray animals and other potential risks.
  4. Better Control: Programmable advanced cat flaps, capable of being synced with your cat's microchip or a tailored collar tag, ensure that only your cat operates the flap, offering you absolute control of their movements in and out.
  5. Convenience for Owners: No longer do owners need to disrupt their daily activities to accommodate their cats' coming and going. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with hectic lifestyles or unpredictable schedules.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Essential for the comfort and safety of indoor and outdoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing must not be overlooked. A properly weatherproofed cat flap prevents wind, rain and draughts from seeping into the house, ensuring a dry and warm environment for both the feline and the occupants. High-quality seals and insulating materials in cat flaps ensure a tight barrier against the elements. For shielding the entrance from harsh weather conditions, another idea is to install a weatherproof tunnel extension. The cat flap's ability to provide a weather-protected and comfortable space for your cat is upheld through routine maintenance, including checking seals for wear and tear.
