The most fundamental form of cat flap, is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat move through. The majority of Hartley cat owners would doubtless favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property, although this might be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door.

This standard model is still a long way off being perfect because it allows other cats or creatures to get into your property, but it can be somewhat improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in place.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires your cat to have a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. This means that any animal that does not have one of these special collars can't get into or leave your home. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar may be able to get into your house. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system providing a user programmed unique identifier.

The next level in feline entry security is to install the kind of cat flap which identifies your pet's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is close by.

Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you should make certain that it is of a design that can be locked into position. Nowadays, almost all cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking system for added security. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, enable access into your house only, enable only exit from your home, or have 2-way exit and entry functionality. This will provide you with options for all times of night and day, to control exactly how your cat flap functions. A few of the top-end models can be set to perform particular functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your requirements.

If you've got a timber door in your property in Hartley, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be all that complicated.

This kind of installation calls for the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who are glad to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the insulation properties too. In fact, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should never be done.

It is necessary to get a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Hartley cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current panel and order a brand new one. So your cat flap can be nicely fitted into it, this new double glazing unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. This is basically the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take one or two weeks to produce. Once you've acquired your new glass pane, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. The cat flap will then be put in.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. However, certain uPVC door panels have a steel lining for added security, which may cause some issues. A one-piece door panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be more economical to exchange this panel for a single panel model.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to get a cat flap fitted on an external wall of your house in Hartley, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. This form of installment is undoubtedly best left to a professional, as it calls for much more skill and equipment to accomplish. You can decide on a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angled model which allows access through a pillar. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted into a square hole neatly cut out of your wall. A suitable cat flap is then mounted on both sides of the hole.

You local cat flap installer will take off the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, wall or window, and fit a brand new flap for your cat.

If the new cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make certain that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed accurately. If it is found this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass must be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
