The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but permit the cat go through. Although this might be suitable in a shed door or garden fence panel, most cat owners in Marchwood would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property.

This basic model is still a long way from being ideal since it allows other animals or cats a way to get into your house, but it can be improved on slightly with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will be unable to trigger the flap and access or leave your property, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. The downside here is that any other moggy in the area who has a similar model of collar could perhaps get into your property when using this kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these devices because they can be programmed by the cat's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The next step-up in feline entrance security is to consider a cat flap that recognises your cat's microchip. The micro-chip details are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). Entry and exit can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is in the vicinity.

The ability to lock it in place is important regardless of what cat flap you are buying. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism nowadays. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, enable only admittance into your property, allow exit from your property only, or be set for two way entry and exit. This provides complete control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night. The facility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, and based on yours and your cat's requirements is also a possibility with some of the more advanced models of cat flap.

If you have a timber door on your home in Marchwood, installing you own cat flap should not be that hard. On no account should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door.

Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them the boot. New cat flaps can't be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its strength, security and thermal insulation properties. It should in no circumstances be attempted and renders your double glazing unsound.

So your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction. You may have to wait a couple of weeks for this special pane to be produced, but if you need a cat flap installed in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. Once you have acquired your new glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new panel fitted. It will now be possible to install and set up your cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most instances. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors have a steel lining for added security, which might cause problems. A one-piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it might be cheaper to exchange this panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always choose to install the cat flap in an outside wall of your home in Marchwood. Calling for a lot more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly better left to a professional, if it's to be accomplished correctly. You could go for a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angled version which allows access through a pillar. Installation calls for a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap can then be fitted to both ends of the hole.

A good cat flap installer in Marchwood will efficiently remove the old cat flap, and mount a brand new one as a replacement without harming the door, wall or window.

If the new cat flap is to be installed in a pre cut hole in a double glazed panel, you must check that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed accurately.
