Essentially, a cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is fixed over it to give protection from the elements. Most Larkhall cat owners would no doubt favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although this could be appropriate for a fence panel or shed door.

This uncomplicated design can be improved on to some degree with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, however it's still far from ideal since it enables other creatures or cats to get into your house.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your property, hence avoiding some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the area that has a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. An enhancement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which includes a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner.

A model of cat flap that is able to identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Larkhall feline entry security. The number of your cat's microchip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is nearby.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking mechanism these days. This means that the cat flap can be fully locked, allow exit only, enable admittance into your house only, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This gives you a number of alternatives on exactly how your cat flap works any time of the day and night. The facility to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on yours and your pet's requirements is also an option with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.

If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you've got a wooden door on your Larkhall home. Although, if it has to be installed into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't even attempt it by yourself. This sort of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who will be happy to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling holes in any kind of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, together with its thermal insulation attributes. In actual fact, it makes your glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your chosen Larkhall cat flap installer will take the measurements of your existing unit and put in an order for a brand new one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its structure. This is really the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you've acquired your new adapted glass pane, the old unit can be removed and the new panel fitted. Your cat flap can then be installed.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber doors are, as I mentioned previously, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Larkhall. It's usually safer to bring in a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're uncomfortable with creating a big hole in your back or front door. This will provide you with the peace of mind that you are going to wind up with a professionally fitted cat flap, and that the job has been carried out properly.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. You will have to determine what the internal structure of you door is, since for extra security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single pane style.

Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could always decide to install your cat flap into an outside wall of your property. A wall cat flap entrance requires a bit more equipment and skill to fit, so it is definitely best left to an expert. You will find there are a number of choices for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) model. With this kind of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole cut out of your selected wall. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at both ends to permit your feline friend to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Larkhall - If your wall, door or window is already fitted with a cat flap, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to mount a replacement over the existing hole. A good cat flap installer in Larkhall will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, and fit a brand new one in its place without harming the wall, door or window.

If the replacement cat flap is to be fitted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must ensure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately. The glass will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues, if you discover that this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
