The simplest kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material fixed over it, to keep the weather out, but permit the cat pass through it. Whilst this may be appropriate for a shed door or fence panel, most cat owners in Johnstone would doubtless prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their home.

This simple design can be improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it's still a long way off being perfect as it enables other animals or cats a way to enter into your home.

The next step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it's fitted with this special collar. The downside here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar collar may be able to access your property with this sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.

Choosing a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in entry devices for felines. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have several cats), to give exclusive access. The flap is unfastened whenever your cat is in close proximity, only permitting exit or entry to pets that are microchipped.

The ability to lock it in position is important regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. These days, nearly all cat flaps available on the market have a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, enable entry into your premises only, enable exit from your property only, or have two-way entry and exit capability. This provides you with options for all times of day and night, to control precisely how your cat flap operates. In line with your cat's and your needs, there is even the option to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more advanced devices.

Fitting a cat flap on your own can be fairly easy if you've got a solid wood door on your Johnstone house, and respectable DIY abilities. However, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. This type of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled handymen who are glad to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a so-called "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. It isn't possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulating properties too. The truth is, it renders the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Johnstone cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing unit and put in an order for the new one. As part of its structure this new double glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take one or two weeks to manufacture. Once your new glass panel shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The installing of your cat flap will then be undertaken.

A project like this will not be expensive and will provide you with peace of mind that your cat will be climbing through a professionally installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. Having said that, certain uPVC doors are steel lined for additional security, which could cause issues. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut holes in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed within an external wall. Calling for much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely better left to a specialist, if it is to be accomplished successfully. You could pick out a straightforward tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled version which allows access through a pillar. A square shaped hole will be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. Both ends of the hole are then installed with a cat flap so that your feline friend can exit and enter your home whenever it wants.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Johnstone - If you've already got a cat flat, but it's either broken or not functioning correctly, the existing hole in your wall, window or door can still be used provided that the new flap is of an equivalent size. You local cat flap fitter will be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the window, wall or door, and fit a new flap for your cat.

When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is necessary to check that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new cat flap. If you discover that this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the panel will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
