The most straightforward type of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but allow the cat pass through. Although this could be suitable in an outhouse door or garden fence panel, the majority of Corby cat owners would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home.

This simple model can be improved on a little with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other cats or creatures a means by which to enter your house.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your home. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar may be able to access your house, is the drawback with this type of cat flap. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which offers a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner. An extra layer of security and control is achieved, guaranteeing that only your feline friend gets access.

Fitting a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next level in access devices for felines in Corby. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.

The ability to lock it in position is important regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. For extra security, most cat flaps boast a four way locking system these days. This means that it has the capability to allow admittance into your premises only, be locked fully, allow exit from your home only, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This will provide you with choices for all times of day and night, to have control over how your cat flap works. A few top-end cat flaps can be set to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's needs.

If you've got a timber door on your house in Corby, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. But, if you are looking to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you should seek outside help. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented carpenters who will be delighted to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be installed in a double glazing door or window panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and give them the boot. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it compromises the insulation attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.

A trustworthy Corby cat flap fitter will carefully get the dimensions of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing supplier. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. You might have to wait one or two weeks for this special pane to be produced, however if you want a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to do it. Once you've obtained your new modified glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel fitted. It's now possible to install your cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be installed into uPVC doors. You or your installer will need to determine what the internal structure of you door actually is, because for additional security certain uPVC doors are made with a galvanised steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it might be better to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed in an exterior wall. Needing much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is definitely better left to a professional, if it is to be completed successfully. You could pick out a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angle model which allows entry through a pillar. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted into a square shaped hole cut out of your specified wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be mounted on both ends to allow your furry pal to enter and exit as it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Corby - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating properly, the current hole in your wall, door or window can be used for a replacement providing the new flap is of a comparable size. A good cat flap fitter in Corby will be capable of removing the unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one in its place without damaging the window, door or wall.

Before fitting the new cat flap in double glazing that has been previously pre-cut, checking that the existing glass has been fabricated, cut and installed accurately is crucial. If it's found this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
