This standard model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, however it is still a long way off being perfect since it enables other cats or animals a means by which to enter into your house.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and access or leave your house, hence keeping out some undesirable visitors. The fact that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar style of collar might be able to gain access to your home, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

Fitting a cat flap that can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in access security for felines. You need to enter the number of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (which is powered by batteries), and if you have several cats it will take multiple entries. Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is close by.

If you've got a wooden door in your property in North Hykeham, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. But, if you are intending to install it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside assistance. These kinds of fittings call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap installer or handyman with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps can't be fitted into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any sort of double glazing will be damaged by drilling or cutting into it, and will diminish its insulating properties, strength and security. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.

A dependable North Hykeham cat flap fitter will meticulously take the precise measurements of your current panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing firm. As part of its construction this new glazed unit will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This is the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take a week or so to produce. As soon as your new glass panel arrives, the installer will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

External Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for cat flap installations in North Hykeham, as was stated earlier, are solid wood door panels. If you are a little nervous about creating a hole in your back or front door, you might be better off getting in touch with a specialist carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This kind of task won't be all that expensive and is well worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that added peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - It is quite feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Nonetheless, some uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for further security, which could cause problems. A one-piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be cheaper to replace the panel with a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut in your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed in an outside wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more skill and equipment to fit, so it is certainly better left to an expert. You could go for a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angled version which allows access via a pillar. This installation involves a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your cat can exit and enter the house whenever it wants.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in North Hykeham - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your wall, door or window, but it's broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, be re-used for the installation of a replacement. You local cat flap fitter will take off the old cat flap, without damaging the wall, door or window, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.

When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be essential to confirm that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new flap. The panel will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues, if you discover that this isn't the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.
