The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is essentially that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a door to permit a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. Though this may be acceptable in a shed or outhouse door, most cat owners in Holland-on-Sea would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property.

This basic model is still far from perfect as it allows other animals or cats a means by which to enter your property, however it can be improved on slightly with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, therefore avoiding some unwelcome visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the area who has a similar collar could possible gain access to your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. An improvement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to use the type of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's microchip. You have to enter the details of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will allow multiple entries. Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped pets, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is close by.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in position. For added security, almost all cat flaps have a four way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to permit only exit from your home, permit only admittance into your premises, be locked fully, or have two-way entry and exit capability. This gives you alternatives for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap functions. Some of the top-end models can be set to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.

If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, as long as you have a timber door on your home in Holland-on-Sea. Although, if it is going to be installed into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't even attempt it on your own. These sorts of fittings require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulation attributes too. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be done under any circumstances.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Holland-on-Sea cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current unit and order a brand new one. As a part of its construction this new double glazing panel will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted neatly into. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take a week or so to manufacture. Once you have acquired your new glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel fitted. Your cat flap can then be put in.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The least complicated option for new cat flap installations in Holland-on-Sea, as was stated earlier in this article, are wooden doors. If you're uncertain about creating a hole in your front door, it's it may be better to bring in a specialist to do the work for you. This type of undertaking will not be too costly and is worthwhile doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed provides you with that additional reassurance.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. Nevertheless, certain uPVC doors have got a steel lining for extra security, which could cause problems. The simplest kind of installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could elect to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your property in Holland-on-Sea. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and skill to install, therefore it is certainly best left to a specialist. Nearly all wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnel style, but right angled access via a pillar is also a possibility. A neat square shaped hole will have to be cut through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at either end to allow your feline friend to enter and exit as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Holland-on-Sea - If your wall, window or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's quite possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. Your cat flap fitter will be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the door, wall or window, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

If the substitute cat flap is going to be installed into a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must ensure that the glass has been cut and installed accurately. If it's found that the previous installation was bodged, the pane will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems with the new cat flap.
