The most fundamental style of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut in an outside door and a flexible material is hung over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. Of course, this is really basic, and won't be adequate for most Kelso cat owners, who would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although it could be suitable for a shed or outhouse door.

This standard model is still far from perfect because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your house, however it can be improved on to some degree with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and get into or leave your property, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. Again this is a pretty simple kind of cat flap, since any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar could possible get into your home. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these devices and can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The type of cat flap that's able to identify your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. The microchip details are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is in the vicinity.

Based on your pet's and your needs, there's even the possibility to perform specific functions according to the time of day, with a few of the high end models.

If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, putting in your own cat flap should not be too difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your Kelso home. But, if you are intending to fit it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to seek outside help. This sort of installation requires the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled handymen who will be glad to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can't be mounted into existing double glazed window or door panels. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.

A trustworthy Kelso cat flap installer will meticulously take the measurements of your current unit and order a purpose made one from a local glazing supplier. This new glazed pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be fitted. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, even though it may take a week or more to produce. Once you have received your new pane of glass, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.
