Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a bendable material is placed over the gap to give protection from the elements. Although this might be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door, most cat owners in Carnforth would no doubt favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property.

This simple design is still far from perfect as it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your home, nonetheless it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip design are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your house. The downside is that any other cat in the Carnforth area who has a similar model of collar will be able to access your home with this kind of cat flap fitted. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.

Installing a cat flap which can be operated by your pet's own microchip, is the next level in access devices for felines in Carnforth. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. Whenever your cat is close to the flap, it unlocks and allows solely your microchipped pets to exit or enter.

Whenever you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain it's of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking system.

This will provide you with a number of options on exactly how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. The facility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and in line with your pet's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the more expensive models of cat flap.

If you have a timber door on your home in Carnforth, installing a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Under no circumstances should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This type of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented handymen who'll be delighted to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing damages not just the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulating properties too. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.

A reputable Carnforth cat flap fitter will meticulously measure up your current unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing company. As part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. You might have to wait a week or so for this pane to be manufactured, however if you need a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. As soon as your new glass pane is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap can then be mounted.
