The simplest form of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is placed over it to offer a bit of protection from the weather. The majority of cat owners in Neath would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although this might be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.

This simple design can be marginally improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way off being perfect as it enables other cats or animals to enter into your home.

A step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, thus keeping out some undesirable visitors. Again this is a pretty basic kind of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Neath area that's got a similar model of collar might be able to get into your house. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to fit the kind of cat flap that recognises your pet's own microchip. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). The flap is unlocked when your cat is close-by, only allowing exit or entry to pets that have a micro-chip.

The ability to lock it in place is vital no matter what cat flap you are buying. For extra security, most cat flaps feature a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable admittance into your premises only, permit exit only, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This offers you solutions for all times of night and day, to control exactly how your cat flap functions. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there's even the option to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the higher end devices.

Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be pretty straightforward if you've got a solid wood door on your Neath property, and decent do-it-yourself skills. But, if you're planning to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you must seek outside assistance. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of a reputable cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is certain to have have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap can not be fitted into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not merely the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the thermal insulation properties too. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

A reputable Neath cat flap fitter will carefully get the dimensions of your current panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. This new pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take a week or so to manufacture. Once you've received your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new one installed. The installing of the cat flap will then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - It is quite possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the internal construction, as some uPVC door panels are steel lined for added security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it may be advisable to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to get a cat flap installed into an outside wall of your home in Neath, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more equipment and skill to install, so it's definitely best left to a specialist. Most wall cat flap installations involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angle access through a pillar is also possible. This installation involves a square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your furry friend can enter and exit the house whenever it desires.

Your cat flap fitter will take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, window or door, and fit a new flap for your cat.

If the new cat flap is to be fitted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed in the right way. The panel will need to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues, if it's found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Weatherproofing cat flaps is essential for the well-being and comfort of both outdoor and indoor cats in Neath. Against the elements, a well-weatherproofed cat flap serves as a crucial barrier that shields cats from wind, rain and chilly draughts, and extreme temperatures. This protective measure has a positive impact on both their overall quality of life and their safety.

The process of weatherproofing a cat flap involves the choice of suitable materials and design characteristics capable of enduring diverse climatic conditions. To prevent rainwater from seeping indoors and ensuring a dry environment, high-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap are crucial. Cold draughts can seriously discomfort cats, affecting their overall contentment and health. Chilling draughts can be prevented and felines can be ensured to remain warm by using insulating materials as part of effective weatherproofing.

Weatherproofing is even more crucial for cat owners whose furry friends venture outdoors. A cat's health can be damaged by exposure to strong winds, rain or cold temperatures. A suitably weatherproofed cat flap becomes a vital lifeline for cats, offering them a safe and comfortable entrance to the house. (42068)
