The most straightforward style of cat flap, is just that. A bit of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep out the elements. While this could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door, most cat owners in Sandhurst would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.

This basic model can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it is still a long way from being perfect since it enables other cats or animals a means by which to enter your home.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or access your property, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, given that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar can still gain access to your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment as they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to consider a cat flap which recognises your pet's own microchip. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will accept multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is close by.

Whichever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can be locked fully, permit only entry into your property, allow exit only, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This gives you a range of alternatives on how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. The facility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on yours and your cat's requirements is also a possibility with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.

If you've got a timber door in your house in Sandhurst, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. However, if it is going to be fitted into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should not even attempt to tackle it on your own. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled carpenters who'll be glad to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can't be installed into existing double glazed window or door panels. Any type of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its strength, insulating attributes and security. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

A specialist cat flap installer will measure up your current double glazing unit and have a local Sandhurst glazing company make a new one. As an integral part of its structure this new glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This can take two weeks or so to produce, but it is really the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. When your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. The installing of the cat flap will then be carried out.

External Wooden Doors - Solid timber doors are, as we stated previously, the easiest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Sandhurst.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the internal construction, because some door panels have a steel lining for added security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to get a cat flap mounted into an exterior wall of your house in Sandhurst, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons. This type of installment is certainly best left to a specialist, since it requires a lot more skill and equipment to execute. You could choose a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angled version which enables access via a pillar. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole neatly made into your selected wall. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit your house whenever it desires.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Sandhurst - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating properly, the current hole in your door, wall or window can be used for a replacement providing the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

Before fitting a new flap in double glazing which has been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made, cut and installed in the right way is vital. If it's found that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Sandhurst

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

The practice of weatherproofing a cat flap encompasses the careful selection of design features and materials that can tolerate different climatic conditions. High-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap are crucial to prevent rainwater from seeping indoors, ensuring that the environment is dry. Cold draughts can significantly discomfort cats, affecting their overall contentment and health. Effective weatherproofing includes the use of insulating materials that help maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, protecting cats from chilling draughts and ensuring they remain warm and cosy.
