Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to keep the elements out, but allow the cat move through.

Since this solution permits other cats or animals to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, although it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring an RF chip, IR or magnet. This means that any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot get into or leave your home. The reality that any other cat in the Dumbarton area that's got a similar style of collar could perhaps access your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products because they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

The next level in feline access security is to consider a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to provide exclusive access. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.

Being able to lock it in position is essential regardless which cat flap you are buying. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps boast a four way locking system nowadays. Which means that it's got the capability to permit exit from your property only, enable only access into your premises, be fully locked, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This provides total control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. Based on your pet's and your needs, there's even the option to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the higher end models.

If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, as long as you have a solid timber door on your Dumbarton home. But, if you are intending to fit it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you must seek outside assistance. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who will be ready to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazing window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them right away and give them their walking orders. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not simply the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Dumbarton cat flap installer will measure your current pane and put in an order for the new one. As a part of its structure this new glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This might take two weeks or so to produce, but it's the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. After construction, your old glass unit will be removed, and the new adapted one put in. The fitting of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be fitted into uPVC doors. You will have to establish what the internal structure of you door actually is, because for extra security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could elect to install a cat flap in an external wall of your home in Dumbarton. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more skill and equipment to install, therefore it is certainly best left to an expert. Most cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angled access via a pillar can also be achieved. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole neatly made into your selected wall. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so your cat can exit and enter your house whenever it desires.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Dumbarton - If your door, window or wall is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. Your cat flap fitter should be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the wall, door or window, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.

Before attaching a new flap in a double glazed panel that's been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been cut and installed in the right way is vital. If it becomes obvious this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues.
