This standard model can be improved on slightly with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, but it is still a long way from being perfect because it enables other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your house.

Your furry friend is the sole one to gain access, offering an additional layer of control and security.

Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazing panel, and your chosen "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work immediately and give them the boot.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your fitter will have to find out what the interior structure of you door is, since for extra security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be less expensive to exchange this panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could elect to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your house. Needing considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly best left to a professional, if it's to be executed successfully. Almost all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, but right angle access via a pillar is also a possibility. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted into a square shaped hole neatly cut into your selected wall. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to both sides of the hole.

Your cat flap installer should be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the surrounding door, window or wall, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.

If the new cat flap is being fitted in a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must ensure that the glass has been made and installed correctly. If it's discovered that the previous installation was bodged, the pane will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
