Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat move through. Most Burwell cat owners would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this could be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

Because this option can allow other cats or animals to enter your home, it is not at all ideal, although it can be improved on to some extent by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. What this means is that any animal that does not have a special collar cannot access or leave your home. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar collar might be able to get into your house, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.

The kind of cat flap that is can be recognised by your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in Burwell feline entrance security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and permits only your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

When you're buying a cat flap, you must make sure that it is of a type that can be locked. The majority of cat flaps sold today boast a 4-way locking system. Which means that it has the capability to be fully locked, permit only entrance into your home, allow exit only, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This offers full control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. A few more advanced models can be set to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your cat's and your requirements.

If you have a timber door in your home in Burwell, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. On no account should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled handymen who will be delighted to take on such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ somebody who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can not be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the thermal insulation properties too. The truth is, it renders the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

A professional cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local Burwell glazing firm make a new one. So that your cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazing panel will be provided with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take a week or two to manufacture. Once your new panel of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. It's now possible to install your new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as mentioned above, the easiest options for new cat flap installation in Burwell. If you're unsure about making a hole in your back or front door, it's a good move to contact an expert to do the work for you. This will provide you with the peace of mind that you will wind up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the project has been accomplished in the right and proper way.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which can cause some issues. A one piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed within an external wall. This kind of installment is certainly better left to a professional, since it requires considerably more equipment and skill to execute. Almost all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole cut into your specified wall. A suitable cat flap can then be mounted on each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Burwell - If you already have a cat flap installed on a wall, door or window, but it is broken or not functioning correctly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. A competent cat flap installer in Burwell will be capable of removing the unwanted cat flap, and fit a brand new one as a replacement without harming the surrounding wall, window or door.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing pane that has been previously pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made and installed accurately is vital. If it becomes obvious this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the panel will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
