The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a bendable material is fixed over it to give a bit of some protection from the elements. Though this may be suitable for an outhouse door or fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Forest Row would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house.

Since this solution will allow other cats or animals to enter your house, it's not at all ideal, though it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be encased in your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that does not have a special collar cannot access or leave your house. The fact that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar style of collar may be able to get into your house, is the downside with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to fit the kind of cat flap that recognises your cat's own microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

The ability to lock it in place is vital regardless which cat flap you're buying. Nowadays, most cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking mechanism for added security. This allows your cat flap to permit exit from your property only, be fully locked, enable only admittance into your property, or have two-way exit and entrance functionality. This offers you a variety of solutions on precisely how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. Some of the more advanced cat flaps can be set to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your cat's and your requirements.

Installing a cat flap yourself can be really simple if you've got a solid timber door, and decent DIY capabilities. But, if you're intending to install it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should seek outside assistance. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented handymen who'll be delighted to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and show them the gate. It's simply not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, along with its thermal insulation attributes. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done in any circumstances.

A reliable Forest Row cat flap installer will meticulously take the measurements of your existing pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. This new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be installed. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or more to manufacture. Once you have obtained your new pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. The fitting of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

External Wooden Doors - Wooden doors are, as I previously mentioned, the easiest options for cat flap installation in Forest Row. If you are a little unsure about making a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you may be better off contacting a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This should give you the peace of mind that you'll wind up with an expertly installed cat friendly flap, and that the project has been accomplished properly and without causing harm to your door.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. However, some uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for further security, which can cause some problems. The simplest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slatted pane for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you do not wish to have a hole cut into your door, you could always choose to install the cat flap on an external wall of your property. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more skill and equipment to install, so it is certainly better left to an expert. Most wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnel style, but right angle access via a pillar is also a possibility. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square hole cut out of your specified wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at both ends to allow your feline friend to come and go as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Forest Row - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not working correctly, the current hole in your window, door or wall can be fitted with a replacement so long as the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. You local cat flap fitter will remove the old cat flap, without harming the window, wall or door, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be essential to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. The glass panel will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems, if it becomes obvious this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
