The most straightforward kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to give protection from the elements. Most Carnoustie cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property, although this could be acceptable for a fence panel or shed door.

Because this option permits other cats or creatures to enter your property, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a bit by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically operated cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to open the flap and get into or leave your house, therefore preventing some unwelcome visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the Carnoustie area who has a similar style of collar may be able to access your home, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.

Picking a cat flap that can identify your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines. You have to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got more than one pet it will allow multiple entries. The flap will be unfastened when your cat is close-by, only permitting exit or entry to pets that have a microchip.

The ability to lock it in position is vital regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold currently boast a four way locking system. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be locked fully, permit exit only, enable only access into your premises, or have two way exit and entrance capability. This will provide you with a range of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. Based on your cat's and your requirements, there is even the option to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with several of the top-end devices.

If you are pretty good at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you've got a wooden door on your Carnoustie home. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This type of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented handymen who will be happy to take on such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. It isn't possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazed unit will be damaged by cutting into it, and will damage its thermal insulation properties, security and strength. In actual fact, 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 glazing company make a new purpose made pane. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it might take a couple of weeks to manufacture. After fabrication, your old glass pane can be removed, and the new adapted one put in its place. The installation of the cat flap can then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most instances. You or your installer will need to determine what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for additional security certain uPVC doors are made with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to swap the panel for a single panel type.

Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap fitted in an outside wall of your property in Carnoustie, if you don't wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more expertise and equipment to install, so it's definitely better left to a professional.

Installation entails a square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to enable your furry friend to come and go as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Carnoustie - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not operating properly, the existing hole in your door, wall or window can be fitted with a replacement providing that the new flap is of a comparable size. A trusted cat flap fitter in Carnoustie will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one as a replacement without harming the door, window or wall.

When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to check that this was previously done in the right way, before fitting the new cat flap. If it's discovered that the previous installation was bodged, the pane will need to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
