This simple model is still far from ideal because it allows other cats or animals to enter your home, but it can be improved on to some degree by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and leave or get into your property, thus keeping out some unwanted visitors. The reality that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar can still gain access to your property, is the drawback with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.

On no account should you try to fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into existing double glazed doors or window panels.

You'll have to verify what the internal construction of you door is, because for additional security some uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to get a cat flap installed on an exterior wall of your house in Branston, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons.
