Cats are like humans in many ways, and will often start to show signs of anxiety and frustration if kept indoors for significant periods of time. Giving your cat easy access to world outside via can also help in keeping them mentally and physically fit. But what form of cat flap is best for your circumstances?
The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but let the cat climb through. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will rarely good enough for most Burgess Hill cat owners, who would no doubt favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home, although it might be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door.
This standard model is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other cats or animals to enter into your house, nevertheless it can be to some degree improved on by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.
Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. This requires your cat to use a collar which has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. Therefore any animal without a special collar cannot leave or get into your property. Again this is a pretty simple kind of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar may be able to get into your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet.
A cat flap that is can be recognised by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in Burgess Hill feline access security.

When you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain that it is of a design that can be locked into position. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking system. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, allow only access into your premises, enable exit only, or be set for two way entry and exit. This offers you a number of options on precisely how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night. Some of the top-end cat flaps can be programmed to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your needs.
Putting in a cat flap yourself can be pretty simple if you've got a solid timber door, and reasonable do-it-yourself capabilities. Under no circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.
INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BURGESS HILL
Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, send them packing immediately. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, as well as its thermal properties. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.
A professional cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, even though it might take a week or two to produce. When your new glass pane arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap will then be installed.
External Wooden Doors - Solid wood doors are, as previously mentioned, the simplest alternatives for installing a new cat flap in Burgess Hill. If you are a little dubious about making an opening in your front door, you might be happier hiring a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter instead. A project of this kind should not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your pet will be using a professionally installed flap.
uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the internal construction, since some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for additional security. A one piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to replace the panel with a single pane type.
Wall Installation - If you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed in an external wall. This type of installment is definitely better left to a professional, since it calls for far more equipment and skill to execute. There are a number of possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) model. Installation involves a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap can then be installed on each end of the hole.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Burgess Hill - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a wall, window or door, but it is broken or not working properly, the existing hole can, with luck, still be used for installing a replacement.

Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed panel that's been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been manufactured and installed accurately is vital. The glass pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues, if it is found that this is not the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
