The most fundamental type of cat flap, is just that. A bit of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to enable a cat to pass through, but keep the elements out. The majority of cat owners in Loddon would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their home, although this may be appropriate for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This basic design can be improved upon with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, however it's still a long way from being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats to get into your home.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the magnetic strip version. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and leave or access your home, thus keeping out some unwanted visitors. Again this is a fairly simple type of cat flap, since any other moggy in the area that has a similar collar can easily access your home. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the home owner.

The type of cat flap which is capable of identifying your pet's own micro-chip, is the next stage in feline access security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have more than one pet). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is close by.

Regardless which cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in position. Most cat flaps sold these days have a four way locking mechanism. Which means that it has the capability to enable entrance into your property only, be locked fully, permit exit from your house only, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This provides you with a variety of options on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night. A few more expensive cat flaps can be set to perform different functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your needs.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be really straightforward if you've got a solid wood door, and respectable DIY skills. However, if it has to be fitted in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it by yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a specialist cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, immediately send them packing. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Drilling holes in any sort of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, along with its insulation attributes. In fact, it renders the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.

A reliable Loddon cat flap installer will meticulously take the precise measurements of your existing pane and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. To ensure that your cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new double glazing pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. You may have to wait two weeks or so for this to be manufactured, but if you need a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. Once you've acquired your new modified glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new pane installed. The cat flap will then be fitted.

External Wooden Doors - Solid timber door panels are, as we stated previously, the easiest alternatives for cat flap installation in Loddon. It is often wise to employ the expert services of a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all hesitant about creating a big hole in your front or back door. This will provide you with the reassurance that you are going to wind up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the job has been undertaken properly.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Having said that, some uPVC doors have a steel lining for further security, which can cause some issues. The easiest type of installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not really want to cut a hole in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an external wall. Calling for much more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installation is certainly better left to a specialist, if it is to be completed correctly. You'll find there are a couple of possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. A neat square shaped hole will need to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to enable your cat to exit and enter as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Loddon - If you already have a cat flap installed on a door, wall or window, but it's damaged or not functioning correctly, the current hole can hopefully be re-used for the installation of a replacement. An experienced Loddon cat flap installer will be glad to take out your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the door, wall or window on which it's attached.

If the new cat flap is to be fitted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must check that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If it's found this isn't the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass unit will have to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
