The most rudimentry style of cat flap is basically that. A sheet of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to climb through, but keep the elements out. While this could be suitable for a fence panel or shed door, the vast majority of Hullbridge cat owners would doubtless favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their property.

This basic model is still far from ideal since it allows other cats or animals a means by which to get into your house, however it can be improved on to some degree by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your property unless it is fitted with this special collar. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar can easily gain access to your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier. This makes certain that only your feline friend gains access, providing an added layer of control and security.

The next level in feline entry security is to fit the type of cat flap that identifies your cat's own microchip. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one cat it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry are only possible for micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is close by.

No matter which cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to enable access into your property only, be locked fully, permit only exit from your home, or have two-way exit and entry functionality. This will provide you with choices for all times of night and day, to have control over exactly how your cat flap works. Some of the more advanced models can be programmed to perform specific functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.

Putting in a cat flap by yourself can be fairly straightforward if you have a solid timber door on your Hullbridge property, and reasonable DIY skills. But, if you are intending to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you ought to seek outside help. These sorts of fittings call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work immediately and show them the gate. New cat flaps can not be installed into existing double glazing window or door panels. Any kind of double glazing will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its thermal properties, strength and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.

A professional cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a local Hullbridge glazing firm knock up a new one. As part of its construction this new double glazing panel will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed nicely into. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a couple of weeks to produce. As soon as your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will take out the old unit, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It's now possible to install the new cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Wooden door panels are, as already stated, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Hullbridge.

This should give you the reassurance that you will finish up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been done correctly.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. You will need to verify what the internal construction of you door is, because for added security certain uPVC door panels are made with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed within an outside wall. Requiring a lot more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is definitely best left to the pros, if it is to be accomplished successfully. You could go for a straightforward tunnel style, or even a right angle version that enables entry via a pillar. Installation entails a square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to enable your cat to come in and out as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Hullbridge - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning correctly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can still be used provided that the new flap is of a comparable size. Your cat flap fitter will take off the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

Before installing the new cat flap in double glazing that's been pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been manufactured and installed accurately is vital. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

To ensure the safety and comfort of both indoor and outdoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing is essential. A dry and warm environment for both the feline and the occupants is ensured by a well-weatherproofed cat flap, preventing rain, wind and draughts from seeping into the house. Cat flaps with high-quality insulating materials and seals form a tight barrier against the elements. To shield the entrance from harsh weather conditions, you could also consider installing a weatherproof tunnel extension. Regular maintenance, such as the inspection of seals for damage, is vital to ensure the cat flap remains effective in offering a weather-protected and cozy space for your furry companion.
