Since this solution will allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it is not at all ideal, although it can be enhanced to some degree by holding the flap in place with the addition of a magnetic strip.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Therefore any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot get into or leave your home. The fact that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar may be able to access your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be really simple if you have a solid wood door, and decent do-it-yourself skills. Although, if it has to be installed in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't even attempt it by yourself. These types of fixtures require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them their marching orders.

Cutting into any type of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, as well as its insulation attributes. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

It is necessary to get a new double glazing unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Glenfield cat flap fitter will measure your existing pane and order a brand new one. As part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it may take two weeks or so to produce. As soon as your new glass pane arrives, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap can then be fitted.
