The most rudimentry form of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an external door and a bendable material is hung over it to offer a bit of some protection from the weather. Although this may be appropriate for a fence panel or outhouse door, most cat owners in Bexhill-on-Sea would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home.

This uncomplicated design can be improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it is still a long way off being ideal because it enables other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your property.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or access your home, therefore preventing some undesirable visitors. The reality that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar can easily access your home, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder. With this, an additional layer of security and control is established to make sure that only your feline friend gets access.

Installing a cat flap which can identify your cat's own microchip, is the next level in access devices for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.

The ability to lock it in position is important whichever cat flap you're purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold today have a 4-way locking system.

This offers full control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. The wherewithal to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also a possibility with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.

Fitting a cat flap by yourself can be pretty easy if you have a solid wood door on your Bexhill-on-Sea house, and reasonable DIY capabilities. However, if it has to be installed into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should under no circumstances even attempt to tackle it yourself. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not merely the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the thermal insulation properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.

A reliable Bexhill-on-Sea cat flap fitter will carefully get the dimensions of your existing pane and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. 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. This may take a couple of weeks to produce, but it is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've obtained your new glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new unit installed. The installation of the cat flap will then be concluded.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Solid wooden door panels are, as previously mentioned, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Bexhill-on-Sea. It is usually safer to get in touch with a competent carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are uncomfortable with cutting a hole in your front or back door.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, since some door panels are steel lined for additional security. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always decide to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your home. This sort of installation is certainly better left to a professional, since it requires a lot more equipment and skill to accomplish. There are several possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole neatly made into your specified wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so your furry pal can exit and enter your house whenever it desires.

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

If the substitute cat flap is being mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make sure that the glass has been fabricated, cut and installed correctly. If it's found that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass panel must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems.
