This standard model is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other cats or animals to enter your property, nevertheless it can be somewhat improved upon by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.

The next step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar.

Although, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt to tackle it by yourself. These sorts of fixtures require a professional installation from a reliable cat flap installer or carpenter with the necessary equipment and skills.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing damages not just the strength and security of the panel, but it compromises the insulation attributes as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

So that the cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazed unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction.

After construction, the old glass unit can be removed, and the new adapted one put in. It will now be possible to fit the new cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be fitted into uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC doors are lined with steel for added security, which could cause problems. A one piece panel enables easier installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be more cost effective to replace the panel with a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you don't really wish to have a hole cut into your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an outside wall. Requiring far more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly best left to a specialist, if it is to be executed correctly. You could go with a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle version which allows access via a pillar.

An appropriate cat flap is then attached to each end of the hole.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazed pane that's been pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been made and installed correctly is essential. If it becomes obvious that this isn't the case, and a botch was made of the original installation, the glass unit must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
