A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut into an external door and a bendable material is fixed over the gap to give a bit of some protection from the weather. Most Croxley Green cat owners would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property, although this may be okay for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This basic model can be improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it's still a long way from being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats to get into your house.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting an RF chip, IR or magnet. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your property, hence keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, since any other cat in the area that has a similar model of collar can still get into your property. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline entry security is to choose a model of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will allow multiple entries. Whenever your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits only your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

The ability to lock it in position is essential no matter which cat flap you are buying. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps have a four way locking system nowadays. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit exit from your property only, permit access into your premises only, be fully locked, or have 2-way exit and entry capability. This offers you choices for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap operates. The facility to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.

If you're pretty good at DIY, fitting a cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you've got a solid wood door on your Croxley Green home. Under no circumstances should you attempt to install a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented carpenters who are glad to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them packing immediately. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its insulating properties, strength and security. Actually, it makes your glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

A specialist cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazing pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new pane. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This can take one or two weeks to manufacture, however it is the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new panel of glass arrives, the fitter will take out the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. It will now be possible to install and set up your new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You or your fitter will have to establish what the internal structure of you door is, since for extra security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to exchange this panel for a single panel type.

Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always decide to install the cat flap in an outside wall of your home. A wall cat flap entrance calls for considerably more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it's definitely better left to the pros. There are several possibilities for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) model. A neat square shaped hole will need to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to permit your cat to come and go as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Croxley Green - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a door, wall or window, but it's broken or not working correctly, the current hole can, with luck, still be used for the installation of a replacement. An experienced Croxley Green cat flap fitter will be happy to take out your old unit and swap it for a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it's mounted.

If the new cat flap is to be fitted in a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately. If it becomes obvious this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the panel will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues.
