The most fundamental style of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into an external door and a flexible material is fixed over it to give a bit of protection from the weather. Naturally, this is really basic, and will not be adequate for most cat owners in Ardeer, who would no doubt favour something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house, although it may be okay for a shed or outhouse door.

This uncomplicated design is still far from ideal because it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter into your property, but it can be slightly improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Therefore any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't access or leave your house. The drawback here is that any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar could perchance access your property with this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is an RF cat flap/collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the householder.

The next level in feline entry security is to use the type of cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip. You need to enter the details 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 accept multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.

Being able to lock it in place is important no matter what cat flap you're purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a four way locking system. Which means it has the capability to be fully locked, allow exit only, enable entrance into your house only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This provides you with a variety of solutions on how your cat flap functions any time of the day and night. The ability to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on yours and your cat's needs is also an option with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.

Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be fairly simple if you have a solid timber door, and reasonable DIY skills. Although, if it has to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who'll be glad to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. New cat flaps can not be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Cutting or drilling into any sort of double glazing will damage its security and strength, along with its insulation properties. In reality, it renders the glazing unsound and it should never be done.

A professional cat flap fitter will take measurements of your current double glazing unit and have a glazing company knock up a new pane. So your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you've obtained your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. The installing of the cat flap will then be carried out.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to get a cat flap fitted into an outside wall of your home in Ardeer, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons.

A square hole will need to be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit your house whenever it wishes.
