Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A sheet of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. Whilst this may be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door, the majority of Bearsted cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their house.

This simple design can be marginally improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it's still a long way off being ideal because it allows other cats or animals a means by which to get into your home.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, IR or RF chip. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or access your property, thus keeping out some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other cat in the area who has a similar model of collar might be able to get into your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having a user programmed unique identifier.

A model of cat flap that is can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in Bearsted feline access security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.

If you've got a wooden door in your home in Bearsted, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it needs to be fitted in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it yourself. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who'll be delighted to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the insulating properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsound.

An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazing pane and have a glazing company knock up a new one. As an integral part of its construction this new double glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into. This may take a week or two to manufacture, however it's basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once your new panel of glass is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. The installation of your cat flap will then be carried out.
