This simple design can be somewhat improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being perfect because it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your property.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With this kind of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. Therefore any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot leave or get into your house. The downside here is that any other cat in the Heathfield area that has a similar collar could perchance access your property with this type of cat flap. An upgrade to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the householder.

Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.

As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into.
