The most fundamental form of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable sheet of material placed over it, to keep the weather out, but allow the cat pass through it. Most cat owners in Boxley would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although this might be acceptable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.

Because this solution permits other cats or animals to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. No animal will be able to leave or get into your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar can easily access your home with this type of cat flap fitted. An upgrade to this equipment is an RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the home owner.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to use the kind of cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's microchip. You have to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. The flap will be unfastened when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can enable admission into your property only, be locked fully, permit exit from your home only, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This offers complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. The facility to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your requirements is also an option with some of the higher end models of cat flap.

If you have a timber door on your home in Boxley, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. But, if you are planning to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you must ask for outside help. Such situations require the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who will have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them packing immediately. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.

A dependable Boxley cat flap fitter will meticulously get the dimensions of your current unit and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. This new pane will have a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take a week or more to produce. After fabrication, your old glass unit will be removed, and the new modified one put in its place. Your cat flap can then be fitted.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for cat flap installations in Boxley, as was mentioned previously, are solid timber door panels. If you are a little dubious about creating a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be better off bringing in an expert cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This kind of task will not be too expensive and is worthwhile doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that additional reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. You or your fitter will have to find out what the interior construction of you door is, since for additional security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The easiest kind of installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could elect to install your cat flap into an outside wall of your property. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely better left to a professional. You could go for a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angled model that allows entry via a pillar. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square shaped hole cut out of your wall. An appropriate cat flap is then fitted to each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Boxley - If your door, window or wall already has a cat flap installed, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it's possible to fit a replacement into the existing hole. An experienced Boxley cat flap installer will gladly take off your old entry unit and replace it with a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the door, wall or window on which it is attached.

When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is necessary to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. The glass pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
