This standard design is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other cats or animals to get into your property, but it can be slightly improved upon with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. No animal will be able to leave or access your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. Once again this is a fairly basic kind of cat flap, because any other moggy in the area who has a similar style of collar may be able to get into your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the preferred version of these products because they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.

Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them their marching orders.

As a part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You might have a one or two week wait for this pane to be produced, however if you want a cat flap installed into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to do it. Once you've acquired your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new pane installed. The fitting of the cat flap will then be completed.
