Because this solution permits other cats or creatures to enter your house, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. Again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the area who has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment and can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. An additional layer of security and control is achieved, guaranteeing that only your purrfect companion gains access.

If you are pretty decent at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap should not be all that difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your home in Irchester. However, if it is going to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented handymen who'll be glad to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them packing. It's simply not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its strength, thermal insulation attributes and security. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.

A professional cat flap installer will measure the existing double glazed unit and have a local glazing company knock up a new purpose made pane. This new glazed panel will arrive with a hole cut out as a part of its structure where the cat flap will be installed. You might have to wait a couple of weeks for this special pane to be produced, but if you need a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you have taken possession of your new adapted glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new panel fitted. The cat flap will then be put in.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Irchester, as was stated earlier, are solid timber door panels.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be fitted into uPVC doors. However, some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for additional security, which can cause some issues. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single panel model.

Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. This form of installation is definitely better left to the pros, because it calls for far more skill and equipment to execute. There are a number of choices for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) pattern. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole cut out of your wall. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your feline friend can enter and exit the house whenever it desires.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Irchester - If you already have a cat flap fitted on your wall, window or door, but it is damaged or not operating properly, the current hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap installer should be able to remove the old cat flap, without damaging the surrounding window, door or wall, and fit a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be important to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new cat flap. The glass panel will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems, if it is found that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.

Cat flap weatherproofing is crucial for maintaining the safety and comfort of both outdoor and indoor cats. A cat flap that is correctly weatherproofed prevents rain, wind and draughts from seeping into the house, ensuring a warm and dry environment for the feline.

Additionally, think about installing a weatherproof tunnel extension to shield the entrance from harsh climatic conditions.
