A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but allow the cat pass through it. The majority of Langdon Hills cat owners would prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although this might be okay for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.

This basic design can be somewhat improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, but it is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other animals or cats a way to enter your house.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. With this form of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring a magnet, RF or IR chip. Therefore any animal that doesn't have one of these special collars can't leave or access your house. The reality that any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar model of collar could possible gain access to your home, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet.

A cat flap that is able to identify your cat's microchip, is the next level in feline entrance security. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's micro-chip into the memory the cat flap (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. When your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and permits just your micro-chipped pets to enter/exit.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. For added flexibility, most cat flaps boast a four way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, enable exit from your house only, enable only access into your home, or have 2-way entry and exit functionality. This gives complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. In keeping with yours and your pet's requirements, there is even the possibility to perform particular functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the more advanced devices.

If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your Langdon Hills home. But, if you are looking to install it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you ought to ask for outside assistance. This kind of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and talented odd job men who are delighted to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to fit your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, send them packing immediately. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Making holes in the double glazing damages not only the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted in any circumstances.

A reliable Langdon Hills cat flap installer will diligently get the dimensions of your current unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing supplier. As an integral part of its construction this new glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed nicely into. This can take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have received your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. The cat flap will then be fitted.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. You or your installer will have to ascertain what the interior construction of you door actually is, since for additional security some uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. The easiest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut holes in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed on an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a little more expertise and equipment to fit, therefore it is definitely best left to an expert.

A cat flap can then be installed on both sides of the hole.

A decent cat flap installer in Langdon Hills will efficiently remove your unwanted cat flap, and fit a new one in its place without harming the surrounding window, wall or door.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing panel that's been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been made and installed accurately is crucial. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems with the new flap.
