A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a flexible material is hung over it to give a bit of protection from the weather. Even though this could be suitable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door, most cat owners in Arnold would doubtless favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.

As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some degree by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to access or leave your house unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. The reality that any other moggy in the area who has a similar model of collar can easily access your home, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having a user programmed unique identifier. Access is limited to your furry companion alone, delivering an added layer of control and security.

The next level in feline entry security is to fit a model of cat flap which identifies your cat's own microchip. You have to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one pet it will accept multiple entries. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.

The ability to lock it in place is important no matter what cat flap you're purchasing. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can permit admission into your house only, be locked fully, enable exit only, or be set for two way entry and exit. This gives you solutions for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. Based on yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the option to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the high end models.

If you've got a timber door on your property in Arnold, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Under no circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This type of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented handymen who will be delighted to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and give them their walking orders. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazing will be ruined by cutting into it, and will detract from its security, thermal attributes and strength. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.

A trustworthy Arnold cat flap fitter will meticulously take the measurements of your current pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed snugly into. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this pane to be produced, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once you have taken possession of your new panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new one fitted. It will now be possible to fit your new cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Arnold, as was stated earlier, are solid wooden doors. It's normally best to get in touch with a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are in any way uncertain about cutting a big hole in your front or back door. This sort of project will not be too costly and is worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It pays to know the interior construction, because some uPVC doors can have a steel lining for extra security. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it might be easier to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. This sort of installment is undoubtedly best left to an expert, since it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to accomplish. There are a number of options for this kind of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angle (through pillar) style. Installation calls for a neat square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap can then be attached to each end of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Arnold - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your window, door or wall, but it's broken or not working properly, the current hole can hopefully be re-used for the installation of a replacement. A good cat flap fitter in Arnold will be capable of removing your old cat flap, and fit a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding window, wall or door.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing panel that's been pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made and installed correctly is vital. The panel must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
