The simplest type of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a bendable material is placed over the gap to give some protection from the elements. Whilst this may be suitable in a garden fence panel or shed door, the majority of Chigwell cat owners would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property.

This standard design can be to some degree improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, however it is still a long way from being ideal since it enables other cats or animals a way to enter into your home.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or access your property. The downside here is that any other cat in the Chigwell area who has a similar collar could perchance access your property when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier.

The next stage in feline access security is to choose a cat flap which recognises your pet's own micro-chip. You need to enter the unique number 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 cat it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.

Regardless of what cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold today boast a four way locking mechanism. Which means it has the capability to allow only exit from your home, be fully locked, permit access into your home only, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This provides you with a number of options on precisely how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. A few more advanced cat flaps can be programmed to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your pet's needs.

If you've got a wooden door in your house in Chigwell, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. However, if it has to be installed in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt to tackle it yourself. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation by a reliable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Chigwell cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing unit and order the new one. As part of its construction this new double glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This can take two weeks or so to produce, however it's basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. After construction, the old glass unit can be removed, and the new adapted one put in. It will now be possible to install your new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - Solid wooden doors are, as I already stated, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Chigwell. It's usually safer to get in touch with a professional cat flap fitter or handyman, if you're at all nervous about creating a big hole in your back or front door. This kind of task will not be too expensive and is really worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. You or your installer will need to find out what the internal construction of you door actually is, since for additional security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. A one-piece panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to swap the panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed within an external wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more expertise and equipment to fit, so it's certainly better left to the pros. Most cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnel style, but right angular access via a pillar is also a possibility. A neat square shaped hole will have to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. A suitable cat flap can then be attached to each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Chigwell - If you already have a cat flap installed on your window, wall or door, but it is damaged or not working properly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. You local cat flap fitter will be able to remove the old cat flap, without harming the surrounding window, door or wall, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

Before installing a new flap in a double glazing pane which has been pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been fabricated, cut and installed in the right way is crucial. If it becomes obvious that this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues.
