A cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material placed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but let the cat go through.

This simple design is still a long way from being perfect because it allows other creatures or cats to get into your house, but it can be improved upon with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or get into your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. The downside here is that any other moggy in the Heckmondwike area who's got a similar style of collar can still get into your home when using this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices as they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet. Access is restricted to only your purrfect companion, resulting in an added layer of control and security.

The type of cat flap which is able to identify your cat's microchip, is the next level in Heckmondwike feline entrance security. 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. The flap is unfastened when your cat is nearby, only permitting entry or exit to pets that have a micro-chip.

This offers you alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap operates.

Once you've taken possession of your new pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new panel installed. It will now be possible to install your new cat flap.

An extra option to shield the entrance from harsh climatic conditions is the installation of a weatherproof tunnel extension.
