As this solution allows other creatures or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced a bit by holding the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your property, therefore keeping out some unwanted visitors. The reality that any other cat in the area that's got a similar style of collar could possible access your house, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is an RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder. An additional layer of security and control is achieved, guaranteeing that only your purrfect companion gets access.

A cat flap that's can be recognised by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline entry security. The number of your cat's micro-chip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to animals that have a micro-chip.

Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them on their way immediately.

Once you've acquired your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. The installing of your cat flap can then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which can cause some issues.
