The most fundamental type of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a bendable material is placed over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the weather. Although this might be acceptable in an outhouse door or fence panel, most cat owners in Tring would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.

Because this solution allows other cats or animals to enter your home, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be improved on a bit by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The point that any other moggy in the Tring area that has a similar collar will be able to access your home, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner. Gaining access is restricted to only your purrfect companion, resulting in an additional layer of control and security.

Having a cat flap which can be operated by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines in Tring. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. Whenever your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in place. These days, most cat flaps on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable exit only, enable admission into your property only, or have two way exit and entrance functionality. This offers you solutions for all times of night and day, to control exactly how your cat flap operates. Some more advanced cat flaps can be set to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.

Putting in a cat flap by yourself can be pretty easy if you've got a solid timber door on your Tring home, and reasonable DIY abilities. Although, if it needs to be fitted into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. These sorts of fittings call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the insulation properties as well. The truth is, it renders your glazing unsound and it should not ever be attempted.

It is necessary to get a new double glazed unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Tring cat flap fitter will measure your current unit and put in an order for the new one. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be made, however if you need a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. After construction, the old glass unit will be removed, and the brand new one put in its place. The fitting of the cat flap will then be concluded.

Cat Flap Weatherproofing Tring

Maintaining the comfort and safety of indoor and outdoor cats, cat flap weatherproofing is crucial. Preventing rain, draughts and wind from seeping into the house, a well-weatherproofed cat flap ensures a warm and dry environment for both the feline and the occupants. Designed with high-quality seals and insulating materials, cat flaps create a tight barrier against the elements. For shielding the entrance from harsh weather conditions, another idea is to install a weatherproof tunnel extension. Ensuring the cat flap remains effective in providing a weather-protected and comfy space for your cat requires routine maintenance, including checking seals for wear and tear.
