The simplest kind of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat pass through it. The majority of Penistone cat owners would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house, although this could be suitable for a fence panel or outhouse door.

This basic model can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other animals or cats to enter into your house.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar fitted with an IR, RF chip or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your house, hence avoiding some undesirable visitors. The point that any other cat in the Penistone area who has a similar style of collar could possible get into your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner. Providing an additional layer of control and security, this makes certain that only your purrfect companion gains access.

Installing a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. The microchip details are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing access to pets that have a microchip.

If you've got a timber door in your house in Penistone, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Not in any circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. These types of fixtures require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.

An experienced cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazed pane and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new glazed unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction. This could take a week or two to manufacture, however it's the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've received your new pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new panel fitted. The fitting of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You'll have to determine what the interior construction of you door actually is, since for extra security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it might be easier to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could always choose to install your cat flap on an external wall of your house. This sort of installment is certainly better left to the pros, since it calls for considerably more equipment and skill to accomplish. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, however right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. A neat square hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on either end to enable your furry friend to exit and enter as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Penistone - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole in your window, door or wall can still be used provided that the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. A decent cat flap fitter in Penistone will efficiently remove the old cat flap, and fit a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the door, window or wall.

Before installing a new flap in a double glazing pane that has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been fabricated, cut and installed correctly is essential.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Both indoor and outdoor cats can enjoy well-being and comfort if their cat flaps are weatherproofed. A well-weatherproofed cat flap is an effective barrier against the elements that shields cats from rain, wind and chilly draughts, and extreme temperatures. Their overall quality of life is enhanced by this protective measure, and it also contributes to their safety.

Weatherproofing a cat flap involves selecting the correct materials and design features that can withstand varying weather conditions. Top-quality seals around the cat flap edges are crucial to prevent rainwater from seeping indoors, which will ensure a pleasant and dry environment. The health and overall contentment of cats can be affected by cold draughts, which can seriously discomfort them. Cats can be protected from chilling draughts and ensured to remain warm and cosy by using insulating materials as part of successful weatherproofing.

Cat owners who allow their furry friends to venture outside must make weatherproofing a top priority. A cat's health can be damaged by exposure to rain, strong winds or cold temperatures. A suitably weatherproofed cat flap becomes a crucial lifeline for cats, offering them a safe and comfortable entrance to the house.

To provide an even greater level of protection, a weatherproof tunnel extension can be installed alongside the cat flap. This extension acts as a buffer zone, reducing the direct impact of adverse weather conditions on the entrance. In the process of bringing the cat from the outside environment to the indoor sanctuary, it assists by creating a transition space. To extend the longevity of the cat flap, this extended tunnel also helps to keep rainwater and debris away from its immediate vicinity. (74815 - Cat Flap Weatherproofing Penistone)
