The most straightforward form of cat flap, is merely that. A bit of bendable material hung over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to go through, but keep the elements out.

This basic design is still a long way from being ideal as it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to get into your house, nevertheless it can be improved on slightly with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting an IR, RF chip or magnet. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your house, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. Again this is a relatively basic type of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar may be able to gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat. Only your furry companion gains access, thus adding an extra layer of control and security.

Installing a cat flap that can identify your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in entry security for felines. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked when you cat is nearby.

As a part of its structure this new glazed pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you've taken possession of your new glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new panel installed. The fitting of the cat flap can then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, as some door panels are steel lined for extra security. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a 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 slats for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed in an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a little more skill and equipment to fit, therefore it's certainly best left to a professional. The majority of wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angled access via a pillar is also a possibility. This installation entails a square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. Both ends of the hole are then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can get in and out of your home whenever it wants.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Brixworth - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not functioning correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can be used for a replacement provided that the new cat flap is of a similar size. An experienced Brixworth cat flap fitter will gladly remove your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it is mounted.

Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazed pane that has been previously pre-cut, checking that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is vital. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the panel will need to be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
