The most straightforward type of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut into an exterior door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give a bit of some protection from the elements.

This standard design can be slightly improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way off being perfect because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to get into your property.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your house, hence keeping out some unwanted visitors. The downside is that any other cat in the area that has a similar model of collar might be able to get into your home with this type of cat flap fitted. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the householder to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. Access is limited to your furry companion alone, delivering an additional layer of control and security.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to consider the type of cat flap which identifies your cat's own micro-chip. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

This offers total control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. Based on yours and your cat's requirements, there is even the possibility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the higher end devices.

If you've got a timber door in your property in Thirsk, fitting you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. Although, if it is going to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should under no circumstances even attempt to tackle it by yourself.

Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the insulating properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsound.

A reputable Thirsk cat flap fitter will meticulously get the dimensions of your current pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. So that your cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new double glazing pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction. You might have to wait a week or two for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once you have obtained your new pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new one fitted. The installing of the cat flap will then be completed.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Essential for the safety and comfort of indoor and outdoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing cannot be overlooked. The feline enjoys a dry and warm environment as a properly weatherproofed cat flap prevents wind, draughts and rain from seeping into the house. Cat flaps with high-quality insulating materials and seals form a tight barrier against the elements. Additionally, the entrance can be shielded from harsh weather conditions by installing a weatherproof tunnel extension. To maintain the cat flap's effectiveness in providing a weather-protected and comfortable space for the cat, regular maintenance is essential, including checking seals for damage and deterioration.
