A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to give protection from the weather, but let the cat climb through. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and will not be good enough for most Framlingham cat owners, who would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it may be okay for a shed or outhouse door.

This basic design can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, but it's still a long way from being perfect as it allows other cats or animals a way to enter into your home.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. No animal will be able to leave or get into your home unless it's fitted with this special collar. Once again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the owner of the cat to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The next stage in feline entrance security is to fit a cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and allow just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.

Being able to lock it in place is vital no matter which cat flap you're buying. Currently, most cat flaps on the market boast a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit exit only, permit only admittance into your property, be fully locked, or have 2-way entry and exit capability. This gives you a variety of solutions on exactly how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. Some of the more expensive cat flaps can be set to perform particular functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's needs.

If you're pretty good at DIY, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, as long as you have a solid timber door on your house in Framlingham. However, if it is going to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt it by yourself. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, send them on their way immediately. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not just the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulating properties too. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.

A specialist cat flap fitter will measure your current double glazed pane and have a glazing firm make a new one. So that the cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new double glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this pane to be manufactured, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to do it. Once your new panel of glass arrives, the installer will take out the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. Your cat flap can then be mounted.

External Wooden Doors - Solid wood door panels are, as we already stated, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Framlingham. If you are somewhat unsure of cutting a sizeable hole in your front door, you might be happier getting in touch with an expert cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This kind of undertaking won't be all that expensive and is worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that added peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. It is necessary to know the interior construction, as some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for added security. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could decide to install the cat flap on an external wall of your property. Requiring much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap install is certainly best left to a professional, if it is to be completed successfully. Almost all cat flap installations in walls are a basic straight tunnel style, however right angle access via a pillar is also a possibility. A square hole will have to be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to enable your cat to come in and out as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Framlingham - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on your window, wall or door, but it is broken or not operating correctly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for the installation of a replacement. Your cat flap fitter will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the window, door or wall, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is necessary to confirm that this was previously done correctly, before fitting the new flap. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.
