The most basic type of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is fixed over it to offer protection from the weather. Of course, this is extremely basic, and will not be sufficient for most cat owners in Heathfield, who would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their property, although it may be okay for a shed or outhouse door.

Since this solution can allow other cats or animals to enter your house, it is not at all recommended, though it can be improved on to some degree by keeping the flap in place with the addition of a magnetic strip.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that hasn't got a special collar cannot access or leave your house. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Heathfield area who has a similar style of collar could perhaps gain access to your house when using this type of cat flap. An upgrade to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.

The next level in feline entrance security is to use a model of cat flap that can be triggered by your cat's microchip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is nearby.

Whenever you are buying a cat flap, you should make certain it's of a type that can be locked into position. Most cat flaps sold nowadays boast a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can enable admittance into your property only, allow exit from your premises only, be locked fully, or be set for two way exit and entry. This will provide you with options for all times of night and day, to have control over exactly how your cat flap functions. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there is even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more advanced models.

If you have a timber door in your property in Heathfield, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. Although, if it needs to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't even attempt it on your own. These kinds of fittings require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulation properties as well. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it shouldn't be attempted in any circumstances whatsoever.

An experienced cat flap fitter will take measurements of the existing double glazed pane and have a glazing firm make a new purpose made pane. This new glazed panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This could take a week or more to produce, however it is really the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, the old glass pane can be removed, and the new modified one put in. The installation of the cat flap will then be concluded.
