Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A sheet of bendable material fixed over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. Most Halstead cat owners would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this could be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This standard design is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other cats or animals to get into your home, however it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. Once again this is a pretty simple type of cat flap, because any other cat in the area that has a similar style of collar can still gain access to your property. An improvement to this equipment is an RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the user. Access is limited to your furry companion alone, delivering an extra layer of security and control.

The type of cat flap that's able to identify your pet's microchip, is the next stage in feline entry security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. The flap will be unfastened whenever your cat is nearby, only allowing exit or entry to pets that are microchipped.

When you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure that it is of a design that can be locked. Nowadays, most cat flaps on the market boast a four way locking mechanism for extra security. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, permit entry into your house only, enable exit from your house only, or be set for two way exit and entry. This will give you choices for all times of day and night, to control how your cat flap functions. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there's even the possibility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the high end devices.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be quite easy if you have a solid wood door on your Halstead house, and respectable do-it-yourself abilities. Under no circumstances should you try to fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or odd job man, who'll have the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the insulation attributes as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.

A reliable Halstead cat flap fitter will meticulously take the measurements of your existing unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. So that your cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. This can take two weeks or so to produce, however it is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door. When your new pane of glass shows up, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The fitting of your cat flap can then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. You will need to verify what the interior construction of you door is, since for added security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be cheaper to swap the panel for a single panel model.

Wall Installation - It's also possible to have a cat flap mounted into an exterior wall of your house in Halstead, if you don't want to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons. Requiring considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly better left to a professional, if it is to be completed successfully. The majority of wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angle access via a pillar is also an option. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole neatly cut out of your selected wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to permit your furry pal to come in and out as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Halstead - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not functioning correctly, the current hole in your window, door or wall can be fitted with a replacement providing that the new cat flap is of a similar size. A specialist Halstead cat flap installer will be happy to take off your old device and swap it for a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it's secured.

If the substitute cat flap is to be fitted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately. If it becomes obvious that this is not the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the pane must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
