The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give some protection from the elements. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and won't be good enough for most cat owners in Coleraine, who would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it might be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.

This simple model is still a long way from being perfect as it allows other cats or creatures a way to get into your home, however it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar that has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your house, thus keeping out some undesirable visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the Coleraine area that has a similar style of collar could perchance get into your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner. Providing an extra layer of control and security, this makes certain that only your furry companion gets access.

The kind of cat flap that is can be recognised by your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in Coleraine feline entry security. The microchip details are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one pet). Entry and exit can only be achieved by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is nearby.

Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make certain that it is of a type that can be locked into position. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means it has the capability to enable only entry into your premises, be fully locked, permit exit only, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This offers you choices for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap works. A few of the more advanced models can be programmed to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's needs.

If you have a timber door in your property in Coleraine, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. But, if you are intending to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should seek outside help. These types of fittings require a professional installation by a reliable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can not be fitted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will take away its security, thermal attributes and strength. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should not be attempted in any circumstances.

A dependable Coleraine cat flap fitter will meticulously take the measurements of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure where the cat flap can be installed. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it can take a week or so to manufacture. As soon as your new panel of glass shows up, the installer will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The installing of the cat flap can then be carried out.

This kind of project won't be too costly and is well worth doing properly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed offers you that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It is necessary to know the internal construction, as some door panels are steel lined for extra security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you could have a cat flap installed in an external wall. This form of installment is definitely best left to an expert, because it calls for considerably more skill and equipment to execute. Almost all wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angled access via a pillar can also be achieved. A neat square shaped hole will be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap can then be installed on both sides of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Coleraine - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing the new flap is of a comparable size. A good cat flap fitter in Coleraine will efficiently remove your unwanted cat flap, and fit a new one in its place without damaging the surrounding door, wall or window.

Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazing pane that has been pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is essential. The pane must be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems, if it's found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
