The most basic style of cat flap, is merely that. A sheet of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to enable a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. Although this might be suitable for an outhouse or shed door, most Clacton-on-Sea cat owners would doubtless favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house.

As this option allows other creatures or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be improved on a bit by holding the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires your cat to wear a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, hence keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Once again this is a pretty basic kind of cat flap, given that any other moggy in the Clacton-on-Sea area that's got a similar model of collar can access your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat. With this, an extra layer of security and control is established to make certain that only your purrfect companion gets access.

Installing a cat flap that can identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in entrance gadgets for felines. You have 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 have several cats it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

When you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain it's of a design that can be locked. For added security, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system nowadays. This means that the cat flap can be fully locked, enable exit from your home only, allow entry into your premises only, or be set for two way entry and exit. This will provide you with a range of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. Some of the more advanced devices can be set to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, based on your cat's and your requirements.

If you are fairly good at DIY, fitting your own cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, if you have a wooden door on your home in Clacton-on-Sea. On no account should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. This type of installation calls for the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented handymen who'll be happy to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them packing. It is simply not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, along with its insulation attributes. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should not be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

A trustworthy Clacton-on-Sea cat flap fitter will meticulously measure up your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. As a part of its structure this new double glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take a week or two to manufacture. As soon as your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The fitting of the cat flap can then be concluded.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in many cases. However, some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for extra security, which could cause issues. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it might be better to replace this with a single panel.

Wall Installation - It's also feasible to have a cat flap fitted in an external wall of your home in Clacton-on-Sea, if you don't want to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more equipment and skill to fit, so it's definitely best left to the pros.

When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is necessary to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before fitting the new cat flap.
