Cat Flap Fitter Chesterfield

SheffLOCK can fit a cat flap in any type of door or window. We will replace your door panel to fit your cat flap so at any time you want to remove the cat flap you have your original fitting.

We can install standard and microchip cat flaps in glass made from moulded plastics which can have a clear or coloured surround.

Cat Flap in UPVC Door Panel

We can source a new UPVC door panel and cut it to the correct dimensions for fitting your new cat flap. We have installed a cat flap in the upvc door panel shown above which is then secured in your door.

We can do the same for a cat flap in a composite door, by replacing a composite door panel with one that will take the dimensions of the cat flap.

Microchip Cat Flaps

For your home and pet security it is advised to install a microchip cat flap that will open only when your cat is present at the opening. This will stop other cats entering your home.

A replacement microchip cat flap can be fitted in the same space of a standard cat flap with a cat door flap replacement costing much less than a new installation.

How To Fit A Cat Flap

We do get asked to provide a page on how to fit cat flap in upvc doors and glass doors. The problem is that fitting a cat flap in a glass door can be very dangerous when you are trying to cut glass.

We will be producing helpful videos over time and I am sure we will eventually create a video of how to fit a cat flap in a upvc door.

Electronic Cat Flaps

Electronic cat flaps have been built to enable convenient functions like controlled access with a lock for when you do not want to use the electronic cat flap functions.

Access can be controlled with the use of integrated timers for timed access or using a magnet for simple access to pets that have a suitable collar for the electronic cat flap.

Fit The Right Cat Flap

Measure your cat across its widest part which maybe either its chest or hips. If you have a young cat allow for growth by adding on a couple of centimetres.

Measure the height of the body from the top of the shoulders to the bottom of the chest. Cat weight up to 5Kg the suggested cat flap opening size is 14 x 12cm, 6Kg cats 14 x 15cm and 7Kg cats 17x17cm openings.

Doors With Cat Flaps

Microchip cat flaps will only work if your cat has been fitted with a microchip or you have a collar key. You will find your cat’s microchip number on your microchip registration form from your vet.

Replacement flaps can be purchased from us if you have the dimensions or product codes available.
