The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into an external door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to offer a bit of protection from the weather. Naturally, this is extremely basic, and won't be adequate for most cat owners in Grangemouth, who would no doubt favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although it might be appropriate for an outhouse or shed door.

As this solution can allow other cats or animals to enter your home, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased inside it. This means that any animal without one of these special collars can't leave or access your home. Once again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, because any other cat in the Grangemouth area who has a similar model of collar can easily gain access to your property. An enhancement to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.

A cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's micro-chip, is the next stage in feline access security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.

Regardless of what cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in place. For extra flexibility, nearly all cat flaps have a four way locking system nowadays. This means that it has the capability to enable only access into your home, be fully locked, allow only exit from your home, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This provides complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. The facility to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the higher end brands of cat flap.

If you're fairly decent at DIY, putting in a cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a solid timber door on your property in Grangemouth.

Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your new cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave.

Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.

A trustworthy Grangemouth cat flap fitter will diligently take the measurements of your existing unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing supplier. So the cat flap can be nicely fitted into it, this new double glazed unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take a week or more to produce. After construction, the old glass can be removed, and the brand new one put in its place. The cat flap can then be fitted.
