This uncomplicated model is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property, however it can be improved on slightly with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your property. Once again this is a relatively basic type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the area that has a similar model of collar will be able to get into your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Only your furry friend gets access, thus adding an extra layer of control and security.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to use the kind of cat flap which identifies your pet's own microchip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one cat). The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to animals that have a micro-chip.

Regardless of what cat flap you buy, it must have the ability to be locked in place. These days, nearly all cat flaps available on the market boast a 4-way locking system for added flexibility.

If you've got a timber door on your property in Northleach, fitting you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. But, if you're planning to install it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should ask for outside help. This sort of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented odd job men who will be ready to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and give them their marching orders.

A professional cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazing pane and have a local glazing firm knock up a new one. This new glazed panel will arrive with a hole cut out as part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This might take a week or more to manufacture, however it is the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have acquired your new modified glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new panel installed. Your cat flap can then be fitted.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Cat flaps must be weatherproofed for the well-being and comfort of both indoor and outdoor cats in Northleach. A well-weatherproofed cat flap is an effective barrier against the elements that shields cats from rain, wind and cold draughts, and extreme temperatures. Their overall quality of life is enhanced by this protective strategy, and it also contributes to their safety.

Weatherproofing a cat flap involves selecting the right materials and design features that can withstand varying climatic conditions. Rainwater will not seep indoors and the environment will stay dry if there are top-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap. The health and overall contentment of cats can be affected by cold draughts, which can significantly discomfort them. Successful weatherproofing includes the use of insulating materials that help maintain a pleasant indoor temperature, protecting felines from cold draughts and ensuring they remain warm.

When feline companions venture outside, weatherproofing a cat flap becomes even more crucial for their cat owners. Strong winds, rain or cold temperatures can all jeopardize the health of a cat. A suitably weatherproofed cat flap becomes a vital lifeline for them, offering a safe and comfortable entrance to the property.

Installing a weather resistant tunnel extension alongside the cat flap can provide an extra level of protection. By serving as an intermediary zone, this extension minimises the direct impact of adverse weather on the entrance. Creating a transition space, it effectively brings the cat from the outside environment to the indoor sanctuary gradually. Moreover, this extension aids in protecting the cat flap from debris and rainwater by keeping them away from its immediate vicinity, which increases its longevity.

Equally essential is routine maintenance to uphold the cat flap's weatherproofing. To ensure seals remain intact and functioning properly, thorough inspections for wear and deterioration are essential. Potential leaks can result from seals deteriorating over time due to weather exposure and use. Weatherproofing measures' dependability and functionality can be ensured by pet owners when they swiftly deal with any problems.

In a nutshell, cat owners should view the weatherproofing of a cat flap as a critical necessity. In both inside and outside environments, it crucially impacts the cat's comfort, safety and well-being. Ensuring protection against cold draughts, rain and extreme temperatures, a well-weatherproofed cat flap is key to a cat's overall health. Ensuring a cosy and weather-protected space, the cat flap remains effective due to the inclusion of insulating materials and premium-quality seals. Increased protection against the elements comes with the addition of a tunnel extension. By maintaining cat flap weatherproofing regularly, you can create a reliable and durable way to safeguard your cats' comfort, enabling them to transition safely between outdoors and indoors without health risks.
