The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. The majority of cat owners in Wootton Bassett would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their house, although this might be okay for a shed door or fence panel.

As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced a bit by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or get into your house, hence avoiding some unwanted visitors. Once again this is a fairly simple kind of cat flap, because any other cat in the Wootton Bassett area who has a similar model of collar will be able to get into your home. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier. Providing an added layer of control and security, this ensures that only your furry friend gets access.

A cat flap which is can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next level in feline entry security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is close-by, only allowing entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.

Being able to lock it in place is important no matter what cat flap you're purchasing. Most cat flaps sold currently have a four way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can permit only admittance into your property, permit only exit from your home, be locked fully, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This provides total control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. Some of the top-end devices can be set to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your requirements.

If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid timber door on your home in Wootton Bassett. But, if you're intending to fit it into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should seek outside assistance. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and give them the boot. New cat flaps can't be fitted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its security, thermal properties and strength. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Wootton Bassett cat flap installer will measure your current panel and put in an order for the new one. So that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazed unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. You may have a one or two week waiting period for this pane to be manufactured, but if you want a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. Once you've obtained your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one installed. Your cat flap will then be installed.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for new cat flap installations in Wootton Bassett, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are solid wooden doors. It's generally best to hire the services of an experienced handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all uncertain about cutting a big hole in your front or back door. This sort of undertaking will not be too expensive and is well worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that additional reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. Nonetheless, some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for further security, which might cause issues. A one piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel model.

Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you do not want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could choose to install a cat flap on an external wall of your home. Calling for far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely better left to a professional, if it's to be executed correctly. You can opt for a straightforward tunnel style, or even a right angled version that enables access via a pillar. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your selected wall. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to both ends of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Wootton Bassett - If you already have a cat flap installed on a door, wall or window, but it's damaged or not operating properly, the current hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a replacement. An experienced Wootton Bassett cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, window or door on which it's attached.

If the new cat flap is going to be fitted into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, you must check that the existing glass has been made and installed in the right way. The pane must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.

  3. Convenience for Owners: The obligation for owners to interrupt their day-to-day tasks to let cats outside or inside is no longer present. This benefit is particularly important for individuals with full schedules or irregular working hours.
  4. Independence for Cats: Enabling them to venture outdoors, exercise, and fulfil their curiosity at will, cat flaps support the independent spirit of cats, promoting their health and happiness.
  5. Enhanced Security: Equipped with locking mechanisms, many cat flaps can be adjusted to permit only particular cats entry, while keeping out undesired visitors. This functionality boosts home security by obstructing the ingress of strays and potential threats.
