The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat pass through.

This simple design can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, but it is still a long way from being perfect as it enables other cats or creatures a way to enter into your home.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with an RF chip, IR or magnet. Therefore any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or access your home. The downside here is that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar could perhaps access your house when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system having a user programmed unique identifier. Only your furry friend gets access, thus adding an additional layer of control and security.

Having a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in access devices for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and allows solely your micro-chipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

If you're pretty good at DIY, putting in a cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a wooden door on your home in Colburn. However, if it is going to be installed into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should on no account even attempt it yourself. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Cutting or drilling into any kind of double glazing will damage its strength and security, along with its thermal properties. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

A specialist cat flap installer will take measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a glazing company make a new purpose made one. To ensure that your cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be produced, but if you want a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. When your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The installation of the cat flap will then be carried out.
