The simplest type of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is hung over it to give some protection from the elements. Although this might be suitable for a shed or outhouse door, the majority of Linwood cat owners would doubtless favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their home.

This standard design is still a long way from being perfect since it allows other creatures or cats a way to enter into your house, however it can be improved on to some degree by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The point that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar can still gain access to your property, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The next stage in feline access security is to fit a model of cat flap which recognises your pet's micro-chip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

The easiest type of installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slatted pane with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always decide to install the cat flap in an exterior wall of your property in Linwood.
