Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is placed over the gap to give some protection from the weather. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely good enough for most cat owners in Weybridge, who would doubtless favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house, although it might be suitable for a fence panel or shed door.

This simple design can be improved on slightly with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way from being perfect since it allows other cats or animals to get into your house.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. What this means is that any animal without a special collar cannot access or leave your home. The reality that any other moggy in the Weybridge area that's got a similar style of collar might be able to gain access to your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these devices as they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat. Access is limited to your furry companion alone, delivering an additional layer of control and security.

Having a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines in Weybridge. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. The flap will be unfastened whenever your cat is nearby, only allowing access to pets that have a microchip.

Whichever cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold nowadays feature a 4-way locking system. This means that it's got the capability to permit only entrance into your house, be fully locked, permit only exit from your home, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This will provide you with choices for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap works. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there is even the possibility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the top-end models.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a solid wood door on your Weybridge home. On no account should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can not be installed into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its strength, thermal insulation properties and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it shouldn't be attempted in any circumstances.

A trustworthy Weybridge cat flap installer will carefully get the dimensions of your existing pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. This new panel will have a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure where the cat flap can be fitted. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take one or two weeks to produce. As soon as your new glass panel arrives, the fitter will take out the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. The installing of the cat flap will then be completed.

Exterior Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, solid wooden doors are the simplest alternative when it comes to cat flap installation on your property in Weybridge. It's usually better to get in touch with a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, if you are at all unsure about cutting a big hole in your front or back door. This will give you the reassurance that you are going to finish up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been accomplished correctly.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many instances. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors have got a steel lining for further security, which might cause problems. The easiest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to get a cat flap fitted on an outside wall of your house in Weybridge, if you don't want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. Calling for far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly best left to the pros, if it's to be accomplished correctly. You could decide on a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angle model that allows access through a pillar. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole made into your selected wall. An appropriate cat flap is then attached to each side of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Weybridge - If your wall, door or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it is possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. A trustworthy cat flap installer in Weybridge will be able to remove the old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without damaging the surrounding wall, window or door.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazed panel which has been pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been fabricated, cut and installed in the right way is essential. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
