Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a doorway to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. Whilst this could be acceptable for an outhouse door or fence panel, most cat owners in Galashiels would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property.

This standard model can be improved on slightly with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it's still a long way off being perfect as it enables other cats or animals a way to enter your home.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it is fitted with this special collar. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Galashiels area that has a similar collar may be able to gain access to your property when using this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The next stage in feline entrance security is to install the type of cat flap that identifies your cat's microchip. You have to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will allow multiple entries. Entry and exit are only possible for micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

Whenever you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make certain it's of a design that can be locked into position. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking mechanism these days.

This will give you a number of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. Based on yours and your cat's needs, there is even the option to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the top-end devices.

This type of installation will require the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who are happy to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave.

In actual fact, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.

A reliable Galashiels cat flap installer will meticulously get the dimensions of your existing pane and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This can take two weeks or so to produce, however it's really the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door. When your new pane of glass arrives, the installer will remove the old one, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. It will now be possible to install and set up your new cat flap.

You'll have to determine what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for extra security some uPVC door panels are made with a galvanised steel lining. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - It is also possible to have a cat flap mounted in an outside wall of your property in Galashiels, if you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons.
