Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A sheet of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. The vast majority of cat owners in Aldwick would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although this could be suitable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This simple design can be marginally improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way from being perfect as it allows other creatures or cats to enter your home.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to open the flap and get into or leave your home, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. The drawback is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar collar will be able to get into your property with this kind of cat flap fitted. An upgrade to this equipment is an RF cat flap and collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.

The kind of cat flap which is can be recognised by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next stage in Aldwick feline entrance security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one cat it will allow multiple entries. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and allows just your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. These days, nearly all cat flaps available on the market have a 4-way locking system for extra flexibility. This means that it's got the capability to allow exit from your premises only, be fully locked, allow only entrance into your property, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This gives full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. Some high end models can be set to perform different functions according to the time of day, based on your cat's and your requirements.

Fitting a cat flap on your own can be pretty easy if you have a solid timber door on your Aldwick property, and respectable DIY abilities. Although, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt it by yourself. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any type of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will detract from its strength, security and insulating properties. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.

A dependable Aldwick cat flap fitter will meticulously measure up your current panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. As an integral part of its structure this new glazed pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This can take one or two weeks to manufacture, however it's basically the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. When your new pane of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" panel. The cat flap can then be installed.
