The most rudimentry type of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to give a bit of protection from the weather. Naturally, this is really basic, and will not be adequate for most cat owners in Fair Oak, who would doubtless favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although it may be okay for a garden fence panel or shed door.

This basic design can be improved on to some degree with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being perfect since it allows other creatures or cats a way to get into your home.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires your cat to use a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased within it. Subsequently, any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot get into or leave your property. Once again this is a relatively simple form of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar may be able to gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of this equipment and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Access is restricted to only your feline friend, resulting in an additional layer of security and control.

The next level in feline access security is to fit the kind of cat flap which identifies your pet's own microchip. 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 in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in place. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism these days. Which means that it has the capability to be locked fully, allow access into your home only, allow exit from your premises only, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This will provide you with options for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap functions. Some of the more expensive devices can be set to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with your pet's and your requirements.

If you are pretty good at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, as long as you've got a wooden door on your Fair Oak home. Not in any circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, who will have all the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation project.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. New cat flaps can't be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Cutting into any kind of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, as well as its insulation attributes. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

A reputable Fair Oak cat flap fitter will meticulously take the measurements of your current unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. As part of its construction this new double glazing pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This might take one or two weeks to manufacture, however it is the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. When your new glass panel arrives, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap will then be mounted.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be installed into uPVC doors. However, some uPVC door panels have a steel lining for extra security, which can cause some problems. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be easier to replace this with a single pane.

Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to have a cat flap installed in an external wall of your home in Fair Oak, if you do not wish to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons. A wall cat flap entrance requires considerably more expertise and equipment to install, therefore it's certainly better left to the pros.

Both ends of the hole are then fitted with a cat flap so your feline friend can enter and exit the house whenever it desires.

Your cat flap installer will remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding wall, window or door, and install a new flap for your cat.

If the new cat flap is going to be mounted in a pre cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make certain that the glass has been made and installed correctly. If it's found that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
