This simple design is still a long way off being perfect because it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your property, however it can be to some degree improved on with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that does not have one of these special collars can't leave or get into your house. The fact that any other cat in the area that's got a similar style of collar could possible get into your property, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. An improvement to this device is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the user. Gaining access is restricted to only your purrfect companion, resulting in an additional layer of security and control.

The type of cat flap which is can be triggered by your pet's own microchip, is the next level in Histon feline access security.

Whichever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in place. For added flexibility, almost all cat flaps boast a 4-way locking system these days. Which means that it has the capability to allow exit only, be fully locked, enable admission into your property only, or be put in 2-way exit and entry mode. This provides you with options for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap operates. In line with your cat's and your needs, there's even the option to perform different functions according to the time of day, with a few of the higher end devices.

If you've got a wooden door on your house in Histon, putting in you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These types of fittings call for a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you happen to hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. New cat flaps can't be mounted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any kind of double glazing will be damaged by cutting or drilling into it, and will take away its thermal insulation attributes, strength and security. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it shouldn't be done under any circumstances.

A professional cat flap installer will measure up the existing double glazing pane and have a glazing company make a new purpose made one. As part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed nicely into. This could take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. When your new panel of glass shows up, the installer will remove the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The cat flap can then be installed.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. It pays to know the interior construction, since some uPVC door panels incorporate a steel lining for added security. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed in an outside wall. This form of installment is definitely best left to a specialist, because it requires considerably more equipment and skill to accomplish. You can go for a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angled model that allows entry through a pillar. Installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to enable your furry pal to come in and out as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Histon - If your door, wall or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is quite possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. Your cat flap installer will take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, wall or window, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be necessary to make sure that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will have to be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
