This standard model is still far from ideal as it allows other cats or creatures to get into your property, but it can be improved upon by adding magnetic strips to keep the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Subsequently, any animal without a special collar can't get into or leave your home. Again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the Clowne area that's got a similar collar could possible gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these devices because they can be programmed by the householder to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

The kind of cat flap that's can be recognised by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in Clowne feline access security.

Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.

So that the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazed unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. This could take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have received your new modified glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. Your cat flap can then be mounted.
