Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is just that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a doorway to enable a cat to go through, but keep the elements out. Whilst this may be acceptable for a shed door or fence panel, most cat owners in Kenilworth would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house.

This standard model is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other creatures or cats to enter your home, however it can be marginally improved on with the addition of magnetic strips to keep the flap in position.

The next step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be sewn into your cat's collar. This means that any animal that does not have one of these special collars can't leave or get into your property. The fact that any other moggy in the Kenilworth area who's got a similar collar might be able to get into your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having a user programmed unique identifier. Gaining access is restricted to only your furry companion, resulting in an extra layer of control and security.

The next stage in feline access security is to consider the type of cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip. The micro-chip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). The flap will be unfastened when your cat is close-by, only permitting access to animals that have a microchip.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be fairly easy if you've got a solid timber door, and respectable do-it-yourself abilities. Although, if it is going to be fitted into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should on no account even attempt to tackle it yourself. These sorts of fixtures call for a professional installation by a trustworthy cat flap installer or handyman with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and show them the gate. A new cat flap cannot be installed into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will take away its strength, security and thermal properties. In reality, it makes your glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Kenilworth cat flap fitter will measure your current unit and put in an order for the new one. As part of its construction this new double glazed panel will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This might take a week or so to manufacture, but it is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have acquired your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new pane fitted. The installation of the cat flap can then be undertaken.

Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always choose to install a cat flap into an exterior wall of your property in Kenilworth.

The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on both ends to enable your cat to exit and enter as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Kenilworth - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either damaged or not operating properly, the current hole in your wall, window or door can be fitted with a replacement providing that the new cat flap is of a comparable size.
