Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A hole in a door with a bendable piece of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but allow the cat climb through. Obviously, this is extremely basic, and won't be adequate for most cat owners in Kingswinford, who would favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their property, although it might be suitable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.

This uncomplicated model can be marginally improved on with a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position, but it is still far from ideal since it allows other animals or cats to get into your home.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar fitted with a magnet, IR or RF chip. Therefore any animal that does not have one of these special collars cannot leave or access your property. The downside is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar style of collar can access your property with this kind of cat flap installed. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.

Picking a cat flap that can identify your cat's microchip, is the next step-up in entrance gadgets for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unlocked anytime your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing exit or entry to animals that have a micro-chip.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in position. Currently, nearly all cat flaps on the market feature a 4-way locking mechanism for added flexibility. Which means it has the capability to be locked fully, permit admittance into your home only, allow only exit from your home, or be put in 2-way entry and exit mode. This gives total control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night time. In keeping with yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with a few of the high end devices.

If you're fairly decent 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 Kingswinford home. But, if you're intending to fit it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should seek outside assistance. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation by a reliable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. New cat flaps can't be fitted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation properties too. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Kingswinford cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current unit and put in an order for the new one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this special pane to be manufactured, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've obtained your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one installed. Your cat flap will then be put in.

The models of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it might be advisable to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap fitted into an outside wall of your house in Kingswinford, if you do not wish to cut chunks out of your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more expertise and equipment to install, therefore it's certainly better left to the pros.

With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your specified wall. An appropriate cat flap can then be fitted to both ends of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Kingswinford - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your window, wall or door, but it's damaged or not working properly, the existing hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a replacement. A competent cat flap fitter in Kingswinford will be capable of removing your old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the door, wall or window.

Before fitting a new flap in double glazing which has been pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly is crucial.
