This basic design can be improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it is still a long way off being ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to open the flap and access or leave your home, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar style of collar could possible gain access to your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner. An extra layer of security and control is achieved, guaranteeing that only your furry friend gains access.

Installing a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines in Radstock.

However, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it on your own. These situations require the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is sure to have have all the knowledge and equipment for this type of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulation properties as well. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.

As part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into.

Once you have obtained your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. The cat flap will then be mounted.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for added security. The simplest type of installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not want to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you could have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires considerably more equipment and skill to install, therefore it's certainly best left to the pros. You'll find there are a number of possibilities for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) configuration. Installation entails a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so that your furry pal can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.

Your cat flap installer will take off the unwanted cat flap, without harming the surrounding wall, window or door, and install a new flap for your cat.

If the substitute cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, you must check that the glass has been made and installed in the right way. The glass pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems, if it becomes obvious this is not the case and corners were cut during the previous installation.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Weatherproofing cat flaps is an essential aspect of ensuring the well-being and comfort of outdoor and indoor cats alike. Rain, cold draughts, wind, and extreme temperatures are shielded from cats by a well-weatherproofed cat flap, which serves as a crucial barrier against the elements. This protective approach has the dual benefit of improving their overall quality of life and contributing to their safety.

To make a cat flap weatherproof, the key is to opt for design elements and materials that possess the resilience to endure diverse weather conditions. Top-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap are vital to ensure a pleasant and dry environment by preventing rainwater from seeping indoors. Cold draughts can seriously discomfort cats, affecting their overall contentment and health. Insulating materials are an essential part of effective weatherproofing, as they help to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, protect felines from cold draughts, and ensure they remain warm.

Cat owners who allow their feline companions to venture outdoors must make weatherproofing a cat flap a top priority. If a cat is exposed to strong winds, cold temperatures or rain, its health might be compromised. A properly weatherproofed cat flap becomes a crucial lifeline for them, offering a safe and comfortable entrance to the home.

If you want to provide extra protection, you can install a waterproof tunnel extension alongside the cat flap. To minimise the direct impact of severe weather on the entryway, this extension serves as an intermediary zone. Facilitating a transition space, it gradually brings the cat from the outside environment to the indoor haven. To extend the lifespan of the cat flap, this extended tunnel also helps to keep rainwater and debris away from its immediate vicinity. (86024 - Cat Flap Weatherproofing Radstock)
