The most basic style of cat flap, is simply that. A sheet of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep the elements out.

Because this solution can allow other animals or cats to enter your property, it isn't at all ideal, though it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or access your property, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. The drawback is that any other moggy in the Enderby area who has a similar model of collar can still gain access to your property when using this kind of cat flap. An improvement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner. Your furry companion is the sole one to gain access, offering an extra layer of security and control.

The next level in feline entry security is to use the type of cat flap which identifies your cat's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is nearby.

Being able to lock it in position is vital regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a 4-way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can permit entrance into your house only, enable exit only, be fully locked, or be set for two way exit and entry. This gives you choices for all times of night and day, to control exactly how your cat flap operates. The wherewithal to perform specific functions according to the time of day, and based on your pet's and your needs is also an option with some of the more expensive brands of cat flap.

Putting in a cat flap by yourself can be pretty simple if you've got a solid timber door, and respectable DIY skills. Although, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt it on your own. These types of fixtures require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap can't be fitted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will take away its security, thermal insulation attributes and strength. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsound.

A professional cat flap fitter will measure up your current double glazing pane and have a local Enderby glazing firm knock up a new one. As part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted snugly into. You may have a 1 or 2 week wait for this special pane to be produced, however if you need a cat flap installed in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. As soon as your new glass pane arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap will then be fitted.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. You or your fitter will have to establish what the interior structure of you door actually is, since for extra security certain uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. A one piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut holes in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an external wall. This form of installment is definitely better left to a professional, because it requires considerably more equipment and skill to execute. Almost all cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angular access via a pillar is also possible. This installation entails a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap is then attached to each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Enderby - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, wall or door, but it is broken or not functioning correctly, the existing hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a new one. A competent cat flap installer in Enderby will be capable of removing your unwanted cat flap, and fit a new one as a replacement without harming the surrounding wall, window or door.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazed panel that's been previously pre-cut, making certain that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way is vital. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass will have to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
