The most rudimentry style of cat flap is essentially that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to pass through it, but keep the elements out. While this could be acceptable in a fence panel or shed door, the majority of cat owners in Craigavon would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property.

Because this option can allow other creatures or cats to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some degree by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot leave or get into your home. The point that any other moggy in the Craigavon area that's got a similar style of collar will be able to get into your home, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products as they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Access is restricted to only your furry companion, resulting in an extra layer of security and control.

The next stage in feline entry security is to install the kind of cat flap which identifies your cat's own micro-chip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.

Being able to lock it in place is important regardless which cat flap you're buying. These days, the majority of cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for added security. Which means that it's got the capability to allow admittance into your premises only, enable only exit from your home, be fully locked, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This provides full control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. A few of the higher end devices can be set to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your pet's needs.

If you are fairly good at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a solid timber door on your house in Craigavon. But, if you are looking to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should ask for outside assistance. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It is simply not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the insulating properties too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.

It is necessary to get a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Craigavon cat flap fitter will measure your existing panel and put in an order for a brand new one. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this special pane to be manufactured, however if you want a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. After fabrication, your old glass panel will be taken out, and the new one put in its place. The fitting of the cat flap can then be concluded.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest option for cat flap installations in Craigavon, as was mentioned earlier in this article, are solid timber doors. It is often best to bring in a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're hesitant about creating a hole in your back or front door. A project of this kind should not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat will be using a professionally fitted flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most cases. It is necessary to know the internal construction, because some door panels are steel lined for extra security. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you can get a cat flap installed in an external wall. Calling for a lot more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is undoubtedly better left to the pros, if it is to be completed successfully. You could opt for a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angled version that permits access via a pillar. This installation calls for a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on either end to allow your feline friend to come in and out as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Craigavon - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a door, window or wall, but it's damaged or not working properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a replacement. A professional Craigavon cat flap fitter will gladly remove your old entry device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, window or door on which it's secured.

Before attaching the new cat flap in a double glazed panel which has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been made and installed in the right way is crucial. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues with the new cat flap.
