This basic design can be somewhat improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, however it is still far from ideal because it allows other cats or animals to enter into your home.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring an RF chip, IR or magnet. Therefore any animal without a special collar cannot access or leave your home. Again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, since any other cat in the Droitwich area who's got a similar model of collar could possible gain access to your property. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.

Installing a cat flap yourself can be really easy if you have a solid wood door, and decent DIY skills. However, if it has to be fitted in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should not even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This kind of installation requires the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented odd job men who are happy to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and give them their marching orders. A new cat flap can't be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulating attributes too. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be done in any circumstances.

A professional cat flap installer will take measurements of your current double glazed unit and have a local glazing firm make a new one. To ensure that your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. This might take a week or more to produce, but it's the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new panel of glass is delivered, the installer will take out the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The fitting of your cat flap will then be undertaken.
