A cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but let the cat climb through. Obviously, this is really basic, and won't be adequate for most Dukinfield cat owners, who would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home, although it might be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This basic design is still far from ideal as it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter your property, however it can be marginally improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or access your house, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. The fact that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar will be able to access your home, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user.

The next stage in feline entrance security is to choose the kind of cat flap that identifies your pet's micro-chip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.

The ability to lock it in place is essential no matter which cat flap you are purchasing. Most cat flaps sold these days have a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can permit exit from your property only, be fully locked, permit entrance into your property only, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This will provide you with solutions for all times of day and night, to control exactly how your cat flap functions. The wherewithal to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's needs is also a possibility with some of the more advanced models of cat flap.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your property in Dukinfield. However, if it has to be installed into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should on no account even attempt it on your own. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation by a reliable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and show them the gate. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation properties too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazed unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Dukinfield cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current pane and put in an order for a brand new one. As part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted perfectly into. You might have a 1 or 2 week wait for this to be manufactured, but if you want a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. When your new panel of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. It's now possible to install and set up your new cat flap.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The easiest option for installing a new cat flap in Dukinfield, as was mentioned previously, are solid wooden doors. It's often better to employ the expert services of an experienced carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are at all uncomfortable with making a hole in your front door. This kind of task won't be all that expensive and is really worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap expertly installed gives you that added peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, since some door panels are steel lined for added security. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to have a cat flap mounted into an exterior wall of your house in Dukinfield, if you do not wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons. This form of installment is definitely best left to a professional, as it requires far more skill and equipment to accomplish. Most cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, however right angle access through a pillar is also an option. With this type of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut out of your wall. Both ends of the hole are then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your furry friend can get out of and into your home whenever it wants.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Dukinfield - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. An expert Dukinfield cat flap installer will gladly take out your old entry unit and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage whatsoever to the window, door or wall on which it's mounted.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is necessary to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new flap. The pane must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues, if it becomes obvious that this is not the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.

By using programmable unlock and lock settings, some automatic cat flaps offer cat owners the ability to maintain an advance level of control over their pets' comings and goings, whilst also improving security. The nice thing about automatic cat flaps is that they provide cats with unfettered access to the outdoors, even when their owners are not present, thereby removing the requirement for manual intervention. Moreover, automatic cat flaps can serve as a deterrent against unwanted pests or animals, fostering a safer and more comfortable living space for both pets and people. It is of course important to get a carpenter, glazier or handyperson to install a cat flap to ensure proper and safe installation that will retain the integrity of your home and reduce the risk of damage or injury.
