The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is simply that. A piece of bendable material fixed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. The majority of cat owners in Torpoint would no doubt favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property, although this could be appropriate for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.

This basic model can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it's still far from ideal because it allows other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your home.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Subsequently, any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot leave or access your property. Once again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, as any other moggy in the Torpoint area that has a similar style of collar can still gain access to your house. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier. Access is limited to your purrfect companion alone, delivering an added layer of security and control.

Picking a cat flap that can identify your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in entrance devices for felines in Torpoint. The microchip details are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows solely your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.

Being able to lock it in position is essential whichever cat flap you're purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold currently boast a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can be locked fully, allow admission into your home only, permit only exit from your home, or be set for two way exit and entry. This offers you solutions for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap works. Some more expensive models can be programmed to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.

Installing a cat flap on your own can be fairly straightforward if you've got a solid timber door on your Torpoint home, and reasonable do-it-yourself capabilities. But, if you're planning to install it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside assistance. These sorts of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed 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 insulation attributes too. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Torpoint cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing pane and order the new one. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed snugly into. This is the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take a couple of weeks to manufacture. Once you have received your new modified glass pane, the old unit can be removed and the new one installed. It will now be possible to install the new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward alternative for installing a new cat flap in Torpoint, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are wood door panels. It is generally better to hire the services of a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you are at all nervous about cutting a big hole in your back or front door. This sort of project should not be expensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your kitty will be using an expertly installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It is necessary to know the internal construction, since some doors incorporate a steel lining for added security. The simplest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could always decide to install your cat flap into an outside wall of your property in Torpoint. Requiring a lot more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly better left to a specialist, if it's to be completed successfully. You could go for a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angled model which permits access via a pillar. This installation involves a neat square hole being cut through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap is then attached to each end of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Torpoint - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not operating properly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be fitted with a replacement so long as the new flap is of a comparable size. Your cat flap installer will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

Before attaching a new flap in a double glazing pane which has been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way is essential. If it is found that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing

Cat flaps must be weatherproofed for the comfort and well-being of both indoor and outdoor cats in Torpoint. Cats are shielded from rain, wind, chilly draughts, and extreme temperatures by a well-weatherproofed cat flap, which serves as a crucial barrier against the elements. This protective approach has a positive impact on both their overall quality of life and their safety.

Achieving weatherproofing for a cat flap requires the deliberate choice of design characteristics and materials that can withstand varying climatic conditions. To ensure a dry and pleasant environment, rainwater must not seep indoors, which requires high-quality seals around the edges of the cat flap. The significant discomfort caused by cold draughts is a factor that can affect the overall contentment and health of cats. Maintaining a pleasant indoor temperature, protecting cats from cold draughts, and ensuring they remain warm and cosy are all benefits of successful weatherproofing that uses insulating materials.

Cat owners who allow their furry friends to go outside should prioritize weatherproofing a cat flap. Rain, cold temperatures or strong winds can all put a cat's health at risk. An effectively weatherproofed cat flap becomes an essential lifeline, offering cats a safe and comfortable entrance to the property, which is essential for their well-being.

The installation of a tunnel extension alongside the cat flap can provide extra protection. By serving as an intermediary zone, this extension minimises the direct impact of severe weather conditions on the entrance. Facilitating a transition space, it gradually brings the cat from the outdoor environment to the indoor haven. This tunnel also helps to keep the cat flap in good condition for longer by preventing rainwater and debris from accumulating in its immediate vicinity.

Equally essential is regular maintenance to uphold the cat flap's weatherproofing. Checking the seals for wear and deterioration and ensuring they remain intact is crucial. Weather exposure and use over time can lead to seal deterioration, potentially causing leaks and other issues. Pet owners can make sure weatherproofing measures remain functional and dependable by addressing any problems swiftly.

To summarise, weatherproofing a cat flap is a crucial chore for every cat owner in Torpoint. In both indoor and outdoor settings, it crucially impacts the cat's comfort, safety and well-being. Safeguarding cats from extreme temperatures, cold draughts and rain, a correctly weatherproofed cat flap contributes to their overall health. A comfortable and weather-protected space is maintained effectively by the cat flap, which includes insulating materials and high-quality seals. An added weatherproof tunnel extension further boosts protection against the worst of the elements. With regular maintenance, cat flap weatherproofing can provide a reliable and durable solution to safeguarding cats' comfort, ensuring they can freely transition between outside and inside environments without compromising their health.
