The simplest kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material fixed over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat move through. Of course, this is very basic, and will not be adequate for most Cheltenham cat owners, who would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home, although it could be acceptable for an outhouse or shed door.

This basic design can be improved on slightly with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it's still far from ideal since it enables other cats or animals a way to enter into your house.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. This requires your cat to wear a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your property, therefore keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, since any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar model of collar could perchance get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier. Only your purrfect companion gains access, thus adding an additional layer of control and security.

A model of cat flap that is able to identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next stage in feline entrance security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. Whenever your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and permit only your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.

Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you should make certain that it is of a type that can be locked into position. These days, most cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit access into your house only, be fully locked, permit exit only, or have two-way exit and entry capability. This provides complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. Some high end models can be programmed to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.

If you've got a wood door on your home in Cheltenham, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be that hard. On no account should you try and fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.

INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CHELTENHAM

Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap is going to be mounted on a double glazed window or door panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and give them their walking orders. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulation properties as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.

A professional cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazed unit and have a local Cheltenham glazing firm knock up a new purpose made one. So your cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This is the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a couple of weeks to manufacture. When your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. It's now possible to fit your new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - The simplest option for installing a new cat flap in Cheltenham, as was stated earlier, are solid wood door panels. It is often wise to hire the services of a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are hesitant about cutting a hole in your front or back door. A project of this kind will not be expensive and will give you the satisfaction of knowing that your cat will be climbing through an expertly installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nonetheless, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which could cause problems. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could elect to install a cat flap in an external wall of your house. Needing considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is definitely better left to the pros, if it's to be executed correctly. You can go for a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model that permits entry via a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A suitable cat flap can then be mounted on each end of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Cheltenham - If your door, wall or window already has a cat flap installed, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it's quite possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. An experienced Cheltenham cat flap installer will gladly take out your old entry unit and swap it for a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it is attached.

Before attaching a new flap in a double glazing panel that's been pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been cut and installed in the right way is crucial. The glass will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
