Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat go through. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be sufficient for most Bridlington cat owners, who would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although it could be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

Since this option permits other cats or creatures to enter your property, it is not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced to some degree by keeping the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

The next step up from the magnetic strip style are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, hence keeping out some undesirable visitors. The drawback is that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar model of collar could perhaps gain access to your home with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier. Providing an extra layer of security and control, this makes certain that only your furry companion gains access.

Picking a cat flap that can identify your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in entry security for felines in Bridlington. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will allow multiple entries. When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your micro-chipped pets to enter/exit.

This offers total control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. In keeping with yours and your cat's needs, there is even the possibility to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the higher end models.

If you've got a timber door on your house in Bridlington, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult. Although, if it is going to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should under no circumstances even attempt it on your own. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you employ somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave.

As part of its construction this new glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. You may have a 1 or 2 week wait for this pane to be made, however if you need a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you have taken possession of your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. It's now possible to install your new cat flap.
