The most straightforward type of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut into an outside door and a bendable material is placed over it to give a bit of some protection from the weather. Obviously, this is very basic, and won't be adequate for most cat owners in Galston, who would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although it could be suitable for a fence panel or outhouse door.

Because this solution allows other cats or creatures to enter your house, it is not at all ideal, although it can be improved on to some degree by keeping the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. What this means is that any animal without a special collar cannot get into or leave your house. The downside here is that any other cat in the Galston area that has a similar style of collar will be able to gain access to your property with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.

The next stage in feline access security is to use a cat flap which recognises your cat's own microchip. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. The flap will be unfastened anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing exit or entry to pets that are microchipped.

When you are buying a cat flap, you should ensure that it's of a design that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold these days boast a four way locking mechanism. Which means it has the capability to enable exit from your property only, permit only admittance into your premises, be locked fully, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This gives you alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there is even the option to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more advanced models.

Installing a cat flap on your own can be fairly straightforward if you have a solid wood door, and reasonable do-it-yourself abilities. However, if it needs to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This kind of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who'll be ready to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can not be installed into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Drilling holes in any kind of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, together with its thermal attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsafe.

A professional cat flap fitter will measure up your current double glazed pane and have a local Galston glazing firm make a new purpose made one. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you've received your new glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit installed. The installing of your cat flap can then be completed.

External Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Galston, as was mentioned previously, are wood door panels.

This should give you the peace of mind that you will wind up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the project has been completed properly.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. It pays to know the internal construction, as some door panels are steel lined for further security. A one-piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be more economical to replace the panel with a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could elect to install the cat flap in an outside wall of your house in Galston. This sort of installation is certainly better left to a professional, since it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to execute. You will find there are a number of choices for this type of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) pattern. A square hole will have to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so that your cat can enter and exit your home whenever it wants.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Galston - If your wall, window or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. An experienced Galston cat flap fitter will be happy to remove your old entry device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any damage to the door, window or wall on which it is mounted.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new cat flap. If you discover that this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
