The simplest kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in a door and a flexible material is hung over it to give protection from the elements. Of course, this is extremely basic, and won't be good enough for most cat owners in Maesteg, who would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their property, although it may be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.

Since this option allows other animals or cats to enter your house, it is not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in place with the addition of a magnetic strip.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. This requires your cat to have a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or access your house, hence preventing some undesirable visitors. The point that any other moggy in the area that has a similar collar could possible gain access to your property, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder. Access is limited to your furry friend alone, delivering an extra layer of control and security.

A cat flap that's capable of identifying your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in feline access security. You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and permits solely your microchipped pets to enter/exit.

Being able to lock it in position is important regardless which cat flap you are buying. For added flexibility, nearly all cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism these days. Which means it has the capability to be fully locked, enable only access into your premises, permit exit only, or be put in two way entry and exit mode. This provides you with a range of options on precisely how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. In line with your cat's and your needs, there's even the possibility to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more advanced devices.

If you're pretty decent at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be that difficult, if you've got a wooden door on your property in Maesteg. But, if you are looking to fit it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to ask for outside assistance. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation from a trustworthy cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulating properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsound.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Maesteg cat flap installer will measure your current panel and put in an order for a brand new one. As part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This might take a week or more to manufacture, however it is the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once your new glass panel arrives, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of the cat flap can then be carried out.

External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, solid wooden door panels are the simplest option with regards to cat flap installation on your home in Maesteg. It is usually advisable to hire the services of a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, if you're unsure of cutting a big hole in your back or front door. This will give you the reassurance that you'll end up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been undertaken in the right and proper way.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. Nevertheless, certain uPVC door panels have a steel lining for added security, which might cause problems. The easiest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into your door, you could always decide to install a cat flap on an exterior wall of your property. This type of installment is definitely better left to the pros, as it requires considerably more equipment and skill to accomplish. There are a number of options for this type of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) pattern. Installation entails a neat square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap is then installed on both ends of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Maesteg - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be used for a replacement so long as the new flap is of a similar size. A trusted cat flap fitter in Maesteg will be capable of removing the old cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding window, door or wall.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately is essential. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.

Cat flaps offer numerous benefits for both cats and their owners:

  1. Enhanced Security: Many cat flaps feature locking systems that can be tailored to admit only certain cats, effectively barring unwanted visitors. Such a feature augments the security of a home by hindering the entrance of stray animals and possible threats.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps obviate the need for you to continuously watch over and open the door for your cat, reducing both your and your pet's stress levels, and allowing them independent entry and exit.
  5. A Reduction in Door Scratching: Worried about your door becoming a scratching post? Frustration from waiting can lead to destructive scratching near entry points. Cat flaps offer an alternative access solution, potentially putting a stop to this undesired behaviour.
  6. Reduced Litter Box Odours: With a cat flap, your furry friend might use the litter box less often, potentially reducing the need for frequent cleanings and lingering odours in your property.
  7. Independence for Cats: By allowing access to the outdoors, exercise, and a means to satisfy their innate curiosity, cat flaps cater to the independent nature of cats, improving their health and boosting their happiness.

A dry and warm environment for both the feline and the occupants is achieved by a correctly weatherproofed cat flap, preventing wind, cold draughts and rain from seeping into the house.
