This standard design is still far from ideal since it allows other animals or cats a way to enter your home, but it can be improved on to some degree with the addition of magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your home, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. Once again this is a relatively simple kind of cat flap, since any other moggy in the Lenzie area who has a similar collar could perhaps access your home. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap/collar system which offers a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.

A cat flap that's capable of identifying your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is in the vicinity, only permitting entry or exit to pets that are microchipped.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. Currently, the majority of cat flaps on the market boast a 4-way locking mechanism for added security.

This provides you with choices for all times of night and day, to have control over precisely how your cat flap works. Based on yours and your pet's needs, there's even the option to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with a number of the high end devices.

Installing a cat flap on your own can be pretty straightforward if you have a solid timber door on your Lenzie house, and respectable do-it-yourself skills. Not in any circumstances should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation from a trustworthy cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, immediately send them on their way. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, as well as its insulation attributes. In fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your chosen Lenzie cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing unit and put in an order for the new one. This new pane will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure where the cat flap will be installed. You may have to wait a couple of weeks for this to be manufactured, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to accomplish it. Once you've taken possession of your new adapted glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. It will now be possible to fit the new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be fitted into uPVC doors. Nevertheless, some uPVC door panels are steel lined for added security, which may cause some issues. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into a door, you could elect to install your cat flap into an outside wall of your property in Lenzie. This kind of installment is certainly better left to the pros, because it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to accomplish. Most cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnelled style, however right angle access through a pillar is also possible. A square shaped hole will need to be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then installed with an appropriate cat flap so your furry pal can exit and enter the house whenever it wants.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Lenzie - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a window, wall or door, but it's damaged or not functioning correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a new one. An experienced Lenzie cat flap fitter will be happy to take off your old device and replace it with a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the door, window or wall on which it's mounted.

When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new cat flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems with the new cat flap.
