Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A sheet of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to pass through, but keep the elements out. The majority of cat owners in Croxley Green would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although this might be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door.

This basic model can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, however it's still far from perfect since it allows other cats or animals to enter your house.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. This requires your cat to have a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got one of these special collars can't get into or leave your property. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the area who has a similar style of collar can get into your property when using this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

Fitting a cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry security for felines in Croxley Green. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is nearby, only allowing access to animals that have a microchip.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in position. Most cat flaps sold nowadays have a 4-way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can enable only entrance into your premises, allow exit from your home only, be locked fully, or be set for two way entry and exit. This gives total control over how your cat flap works both throughout the day and during the night. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there's even the option to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with several of the more advanced devices.

If you are pretty decent at DIY, fitting your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, as long as you've got a wooden door on your Croxley Green home. Not in any circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. This type of installation calls for the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented odd job men who are delighted to take on such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. New cat flaps can't be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation properties too. Actually, it makes the glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Croxley Green cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing unit and order a brand new one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed unit will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. This could take a week or more to manufacture, but it is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've acquired your new adapted pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new panel installed. Your cat flap can then be installed.

External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, solid timber door panels are the least complicated alternative with regards to installing a new cat flap on your house in Croxley Green. It is usually wise to hire the services of a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are in any way unsure of making a hole in your back or front door. This sort of undertaking won't be too costly and is well worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional gives you that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be installed into uPVC doors. Nevertheless, some uPVC door panels are steel lined for further security, which could cause problems. A one-piece panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more equipment and skill to fit, so it is definitely best left to an expert. You could decide on a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angled version which permits entry through a pillar. A neat square hole will be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on both ends to allow your furry pal to exit and enter as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Croxley Green - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not operating properly, the current hole in your door, window or wall can be fitted with a replacement providing the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. An expert Croxley Green cat flap fitter will be glad to take out your old device and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, window or door on which it is secured.

Before installing a new flap in a double glazing pane that's been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately is crucial. The pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems, if it becomes obvious this is not the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
