The Ratflap does what traditional rat-control interventions do not: it stops the rats before they enter your workplace or home and prevents them from ever becoming a problem.
Rat traps and pesticides are designed only to work after the rats have arrived, after they've dragged filth, germs and disease into your world. In contrast, the Ratflap prohibits rats from ever encroaching on your work or home life by denying rats in their major thoroughfare: your water pipes and sewer system.
How the RATFLAP works:
The Ratflap works by blocking off sewage pipe access to rats from the outside while still permitting the free flow of water and waste from the inside.
The Ratflap fits snugly into your water or sewer pipe.
New barriers released late 2016 now have tabs (as shown on instructions provided)
Its steel flap opens when fluids need to flow freely into the sewer, but until then, the flap remains closed and prohibits rodents from entering. Quite simply, fluid flows out, but rats can't get in. This means that if you have multiple lateral drains only 1 rat-flap is necessary to protect them all!
The unit can be fitted in either the outlet pipe from your home (reverse the unit) or in the pipe between your home system and the main road sewer. If your home was built before 1960 the chances are that you will have an interceptor fitted on the pipe from your home to the main sewer and in this case you may only need a drain plug to solve your rat problem. Call us if you have an interceptor as rat barriers should not be fitted to rodding eye pipes, these should be protected with a rodding eye cap or a drain plug, we can advise on this.
Optional barrier with nut and pole can be ordered above, incase of deep manhole chamber access.
In the datasheet tab there is a typical drain plan that will help locate where the ratflap will need to be installed, click below for installation instructions.
There is also a 6 inch version available below

||Took around 1/2 hr to install and had good instructions. Only basic tools required (drill, pliers and screwdriver). Rat blaocker of good quality and being stainless steel will hopefully last well.|
||The only rat flap to fit. Easy to fit and works.|
||Well built reliable unit that always, if installed correctly, correct a drain rodent issue. We only use stainless steel as all others are inferior.|
||Straightforward to fit. Good instructions. Let's see if it delivers the right result!|

||we are not the end user of the item.|
||Appears to be operating trouble free after a couple of weeks but does seem a bit expensive for what it actually is. However, if it keeps the rats out it will be worth every penny!|
||excellent service with quick delivery||
Great, thank you.
Seems to work well, so far, although it seems expensive for what it is, this is a precision made item.
Glad I brought two - an immediate and complete and trouble free solution.
||DOSE AS IT SAYS|
||Easy to install and working well|
||So far seems good, fits snugly and doesn't affect flow out of material as the bottom part is frame-less. The real test of it's effectiveness will need time to assess but so far so good.|
