A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material hung over it, to provide protection from the elements, but permit the cat move through. Although this may be suitable in a garden fence panel or shed door, most Lochgelly cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house.

Because this option will allow other cats or creatures to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in position by adding a magnetic strip.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your home unless it's fitted with one of these special collars. Again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar could perhaps get into your property. An enhancement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.

The type of cat flap that is can be recognised by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next stage in Lochgelly feline entrance security. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits only your micro-chipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

Regardless which cat flap you buy, it should be capable of being locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays boast a 4-way locking system. This allows your cat flap to enable entry into your home only, be locked fully, permit exit from your home only, or have 2-way exit and entrance functionality. This offers you a range of solutions on precisely how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. The ability to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements is also an option with some of the more advanced brands of cat flap.

If you have a wood door on your house in Lochgelly, putting in a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. However, if it is going to be installed into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it by yourself. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap installer or odd job man with the appropriate equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can't be mounted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any sort of double glazing will be damaged by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its security, strength and thermal insulation properties. In fact, it renders your glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.

It is necessary to get a new double glazing panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your local Lochgelly cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing panel and order the new one. This new pane will have a pre-cut hole as part of its construction where the cat flap will be installed. This can take a week or more to manufacture, however it's the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. As soon as your new glass pane arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

External Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we stated earlier, the easiest options for installing a new cat flap in Lochgelly. If you are somewhat dubious about making a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be happier hiring an expert carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This should give you the satisfaction of knowing that you are going to wind up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the job has been done properly.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to install a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC doors have got a steel lining for extra security, which may cause some problems. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type door panel, it might be better to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an outside wall. This sort of installation is definitely best left to the pros, as it requires much more skill and equipment to execute. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls are a simple straight tunnel style, however right angle access through a pillar can also be achieved. This installation involves a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to enable your cat to come and go as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Lochgelly - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either broken or not working properly, the existing hole in your door, window or wall can still be used provided that the new cat flap is of an equivalent size. Your cat flap installer will be able to remove the old cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding door, wall or window, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be necessary to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new flap. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge job, the pane must be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.
