The most basic style of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut in a door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be adequate for most Midhurst cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although it might be acceptable for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.

This simple design can be marginally improved on with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position, but it is still far from ideal because it enables other cats or animals to enter into your home.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar which has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased in it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your house unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar style of collar could perchance gain access to your house, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having a user programmed unique identifier.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to consider a cat flap which identifies your cat's micro-chip. You have to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the cat flap's memory (which is battery powered), and if you have more than one pet it will take multiple entries. The flap will be unlocked anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to pets that are microchipped.

No matter which cat flap you buy, it must have the ability to be locked in position. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking mechanism.

This gives you a number of choices on how your cat flap operates any time of the day and night. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there is even the possibility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the more advanced models.

Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be installed into uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, since some doors can have a steel lining for additional security. The easiest kind of installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.
