As this option will allow other animals or cats to enter your property, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced to some degree by holding the flap in place with the addition of magnetic strips.

Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your property, hence preventing some undesirable visitors. The drawback here is that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar might be able to access your property with this kind of cat flap fitted. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier. Your feline friend is the sole one to gain access, offering an additional layer of security and control.

No matter what cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. These days, nearly all cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking mechanism for extra security. Which means that the cat flap can enable only admittance into your premises, be fully locked, allow only exit from your home, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This will give you alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. Some of the more expensive models can be set to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your pet's and your needs.

If you've got a wooden door in your home in Barton-upon-Humber, fitting you own cat flap shouldn't be all that complicated. Not in any circumstances should you try to fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. Such situations require the expertise and skills of a specialist cat flap installer or odd job man, who will have the tools and knowledge for this kind of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them on their way. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Any type of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will diminish its thermal insulation properties, strength and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Barton-upon-Humber cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing unit and order the new one. As part of its construction this new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You might have a one or two week wait for this to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will take out the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It will now be possible to install the new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most instances. It pays to know the interior construction, because some door panels can have a steel lining for additional security. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it may be easier to replace this with a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to have a hole cut into your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. Calling for much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is certainly best left to a specialist, if it's to be completed correctly. You can opt for a straightforward tunnel style, or even a right angle version which allows entry through a pillar. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square shaped hole neatly made into your specified wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so your furry pal can get in and out of your home whenever it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Barton-upon-Humber - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a wall, window or door, but it's broken or not functioning correctly, the current hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. Your cat flap fitter will take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding wall, window or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazing panel that has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been made and installed correctly is crucial. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
