A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat move through.

As this option allows other creatures or cats to enter your property, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to access or leave your home unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, as any other cat in the area that has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your property. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier. Only your purrfect companion gets access, thus adding an extra layer of security and control.

A model of cat flap which is able to identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next stage in feline access security. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). The flap is unfastened when your cat is nearby, only permitting access to pets that are microchipped.

Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in place. For extra security, the majority of cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism nowadays. This makes it possible for your cat flap to permit only entry into your premises, permit only exit from your home, be locked fully, or have two-way exit and entrance capability. This will provide you with solutions for all times of night and day, to control how your cat flap works. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there's even the possibility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the high end models.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, as long as you have a timber door on your property in Irthlingborough. But, if you're looking to install it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should seek outside help. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazing window or door panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work right away and give them their walking orders. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will ruin its strength and security, along with its insulating properties. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be done under any circumstances.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Irthlingborough cat flap fitter will measure your current panel and order the new one. This new glazed panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction where your cat flap will be installed. This might take one or two weeks to produce, but it is the only way to install a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new pane of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be installed into uPVC doors. You'll have to ascertain what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC door panels are made with a steel lining. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you do not want to have a hole cut into your door, you could opt to install the cat flap into an exterior wall of your house. Requiring considerably more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is certainly best left to the pros, if it is to be accomplished correctly. There are a couple of options for this kind of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angle (through pillar) style. This installation entails a neat square shaped hole being cut through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to allow your furry pal to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Irthlingborough - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it isn't working, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. You local cat flap installer will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the door, wall or window, and install a new flap for your cat.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it is important to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new flap. If it's discovered that the previous installation was bodged, the glass must be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
