However, what sort of cat flap is most suitable for your situation?

The most basic kind of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat climb through. Obviously, this is very basic, and won't be adequate for most Ludlow cat owners, who would no doubt favour something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although it may be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.

This standard model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your property.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your property, hence keeping out some unwelcome visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar style of collar can easily gain access to your house, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some extent with an RF cat flap/collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier.

The next stage in feline entry security is to use the kind of cat flap which identifies your pet's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got several cats), to give exclusive access. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and allows just your microchipped pets to use the exit/entrance.

No matter what cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in position. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps available on the market boast a 4-way locking system for extra security. This means that it's got the capability to permit exit from your home only, enable entrance into your home only, be fully locked, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This gives full control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. Some higher end cat flaps can be programmed to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's needs.

If you're fairly good at DIY, installing your own cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you've got a solid timber door on your home in Ludlow. Under no circumstances should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or handyman with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can't be mounted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not merely the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the insulation attributes too. The truth is, it renders the glazing unsound and it should not ever be done.

An experienced cat flap fitter will take the measurements of the existing double glazed unit and have a glazing firm knock up a new purpose made pane. To ensure that your cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazing unit will be provided with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. You might have to wait two weeks or so for this pane to be made, however if you want a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. Once you've taken possession of your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new pane fitted. The fitting of the cat flap will then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in many instances. You'll need to ascertain what the internal construction of you door actually is, because for additional security some uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into a door, you could always choose to install the cat flap into an outside wall of your property. Requiring far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is certainly best left to a specialist, if it is to be executed successfully. You'll find there are several choices for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) style. This installation involves a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with a cat flap so your feline friend can get out of and into your home whenever it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Ludlow - If your wall, window or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. A decent cat flap installer in Ludlow will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without causing damage to the surrounding wall, window or door.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it is important to make sure that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. If it becomes obvious this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues.
