This basic design is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other animals or cats to enter your house, but it can be improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.

The next step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars cannot leave or access your property. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar collar will be able to access your home with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system containing an owner programmed unique identifier.

It's simply not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. 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.

This new pane will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap will be installed. This might take a week or so to manufacture, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have obtained your new modified pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new panel fitted. The cat flap will then be fitted.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be installed into uPVC doors. However, certain uPVC doors have got a steel lining for further security, which might cause issues. A one-piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be more economical to swap the panel for a single panel model.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could always choose to install the cat flap into an external wall of your house. This form of installment is definitely best left to a professional, since it requires far more skill and equipment to execute. Almost all wall cat flap installations involve a simple straight tunnel style, but right angle access via a pillar is also an option.

A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on either end to permit your cat to exit and enter as it pleases.
