Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat climb through. Most Eckington cat owners would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although this might be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door.

This standard model can be marginally improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it is still far from perfect since it enables other cats or creatures to enter into your house.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. Therefore any animal that hasn't got a special collar can't leave or get into your home. The reality that any other cat in the area who's got a similar model of collar may be able to access your house, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.

A cat flap that's can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in feline access security. You need to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. When your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in position. These days, most cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking system for added flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can permit access into your property only, be locked fully, enable only exit from your home, or be set for two way entry and exit. This gives complete control over how your cat flap operates both during the day and throughout the night. In keeping with yours and your cat's needs, there is even the option to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with a number of the high end models.

These situations require the skills and expertise of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, who is certain to have have all the knowledge and tools for this type of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave.

So that your cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new glazed panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this special pane to be manufactured, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've taken possession of your new adapted pane of glass, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel fitted. Your cat flap will then be mounted.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. However, some uPVC doors have got a steel lining for additional security, which might cause problems. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap mounted into an external wall of your property in Eckington, if you do not wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more skill and equipment to fit, so it's certainly best left to a professional.

With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your selected wall. A cat flap can then be mounted on each end of the hole.

A professional Eckington cat flap fitter will gladly take out your old device and swap it for a fresh cat flap without causing any damage to the wall, door or window on which it is secured.

Before installing the new cat flap in a double glazing pane that has been pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been manufactured, cut and installed correctly is vital.
