Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole is cut into a door and a bendable material is placed over it to offer protection from the weather. While this might be appropriate in an outhouse door or fence panel, most Honiton cat owners would favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house.

This basic design can be slightly improved upon with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place, but it's still far from ideal because it allows other animals or cats a way to enter into your house.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and leave or get into your home, hence keeping out some undesirable visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar collar can get into your property, is the drawback with this sort of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices as they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

The type of cat flap that's able to identify your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. You have to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you've got several cats it will take multiple entries. The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is in close proximity, only permitting entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.

No matter what cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in place. Currently, the majority of cat flaps on the market have a 4-way locking system for extra flexibility. This means that the cat flap can permit only access into your house, enable exit from your property only, be locked fully, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This offers you a variety of solutions on exactly how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. The wherewithal to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the higher end brands of cat flap.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be too difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your Honiton home. But, if you are looking to install it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must ask for outside help. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented carpenters who will be happy to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It is simply not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, along with its thermal properties. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances whatsoever.

An experienced cat flap installer will measure your current double glazing pane and have a local glazing company make a new purpose made pane. This new pane will be delivered with a hole cut out as part of its structure where your cat flap will be fitted. This might take a week or so to manufacture, but it is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. When your new glass panel is delivered, the installer will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The cat flap will then be put in.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most instances. Having said that, certain uPVC door panels are lined with steel for added security, which may cause some problems. The simplest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into a door, you could always decide to install a cat flap in an exterior wall of your home.
