The simplest form of cat flap is essentially that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material placed over it, to provide protection from the weather, but let the cat go through. Although this could be appropriate for a fence panel or outhouse door, the vast majority of cat owners in Measham would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their home.

As this option permits other cats or animals to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, though it can be improved on to some extent by keeping the flap in position with the addition of a magnetic strip.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either a magnet, RF or IR chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal without a special collar cannot access or leave your house. The reality that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar collar could perhaps access your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic sort of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.

Fitting a cat flap which can be triggered by your pet's own microchip, is the next step-up in entrance security for felines in Measham. You need to enter the unique number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have more than one cat it will accept multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

Whatever cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in place. These days, most cat flaps on the market boast a 4-way locking system for added security. This allows your cat flap to enable exit only, enable only entry into your premises, be locked fully, or have two-way exit and entry capability. This provides you with a variety of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap works at all times of the day and night time. A few more expensive models can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in line with yours and your cat's needs.

If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, as long as you have a wooden door on your Measham home. But, if you're looking to fit it in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to ask for outside help. These situations call for the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or odd job man, who is certain to have have the equipment and knowledge for this type of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by cutting or drilling into it, and will diminish its security, strength and thermal insulation properties. In fact, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

An experienced cat flap installer will measure up the existing double glazing pane and have a glazing company make a new purpose made pane. As part of its structure this new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a week or so to produce. Once your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. The installation of your cat flap can then be carried out.

Wall Installation - If you don't want to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can get a cat flap installed within an exterior wall.
