The most rudimentry style of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to provide protection from the weather, but allow the cat move through.

This uncomplicated model can be improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, however it's still a long way off being ideal as it enables other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your house.

A step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or get into your house unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The reality that any other moggy in the Appleton Thorn area that has a similar style of collar might be able to gain access to your house, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.

The next stage in feline entry security is to install the kind of cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.

No matter which cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in position. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking system. This allows your cat flap to permit access into your house only, be locked fully, enable only exit from your home, or have 2-way exit and entry functionality. This offers full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the more expensive models.

If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, putting in your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, as long as you've got a timber door on your property in Appleton Thorn. However, if it needs to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt to tackle it on your own. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, who is certain to have have the tools and knowledge for this kind of installation.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap can't be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will take away its strength, thermal properties and security. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.

A specialist cat flap installer will measure up your current double glazed pane and have a glazing firm make a new purpose made one. As a part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You may have a one or two week waiting period for this special pane to be manufactured, but if you need a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've taken possession of your new adapted pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most instances. You'll have to find out what the interior construction of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC door panels are made with a galvanised steel lining. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it may be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can get a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. Requiring much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is definitely better left to a specialist, if it's to be accomplished correctly.

Installation involves a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted.

You local cat flap fitter will be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.
