The most basic type of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but let the cat move through. Although this might be suitable in an outhouse door or fence panel, most cat owners in Forest Row would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home.

Since this solution will allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some degree by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and get into or leave your house, thus preventing some undesirable visitors. The point that any other cat in the area that has a similar collar may be able to get into your house, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having a user programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline entry security is to use the type of cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). The flap is unlocked anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing entry or exit to pets that have a micro-chip.

When you are purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure it's of a design that can be locked. For added flexibility, almost all cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means that it has the capability to be fully locked, allow only exit from your home, permit entrance into your house only, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This will give you solutions for all times of day and night, to have control over how your cat flap works. The ability to carry out different functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your pet's needs is also a possibility with some of the higher end models of cat flap.

Fitting a cat flap on your own can be pretty easy if you've got a solid timber door, and decent DIY abilities. Under no circumstances should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. These types of fittings call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making holes in your double glazing destroys not just the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the insulating attributes as well. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

A trustworthy Forest Row cat flap installer will diligently measure up your current unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. As a part of its construction this new double glazed unit will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This might take two weeks or so to produce, however it's basically the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. Once you've received your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit installed. Your cat flap will then be mounted.

External Wooden Doors - As mentioned previously, timber door panels are the least complicated alternative with regards to cat flap installation on your property in Forest Row. If you're a little uncertain about creating a hole in your door, you might be better off hiring a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This sort of project won't be too expensive and is well worth doing properly, if having your cat flap installed by a professional offers you that added reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. Having said that, some uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for further security, which might cause problems. A one-piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to have a hole cut in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed on an external wall. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more skill and equipment to install, so it is definitely better left to an expert. You could go for a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model which enables entry through a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. An appropriate cat flap can then be mounted on each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Forest Row - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your door, window or wall, but it is damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a new one. A competent cat flap fitter in Forest Row will efficiently remove the old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a new one as a replacement without causing damage to the window, wall or door.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is essential to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new cat flap. The glass pane must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems, if it is found this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
