The most rudimentry style of cat flap is essentially that. A piece of bendable material hung over a hole in a door to allow a cat to go through, but keep out the elements. The majority of Oakley cat owners would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their house, although this could be suitable for an outhouse or shed door.

As this option will allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a bit by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

A 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 fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or access your property unless it's equipped with this special collar. The drawback is that any other moggy in the Oakley area that has a similar model of collar could possible gain access to your house when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system offering a user programmed unique identifier.

The kind of cat flap that is able to identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next level in Oakley feline access security. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). The flap is unlocked anytime your cat is in close proximity, only allowing exit or entry to pets that have a microchip.

Whenever you are purchasing a cat flap, you should make sure that it's of a design that can be locked into position. The majority of cat flaps sold these days feature a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can permit exit from your house only, permit entrance into your home only, be locked fully, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This provides complete control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. Some more advanced devices can be set to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, based on yours and your pet's requirements.

If you're fairly good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, as long as you've got a solid wood door on your Oakley home. But, if you're looking to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should seek outside assistance. These situations require the skills and expertise of a competent cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have all the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by cutting into it, and will diminish its strength, thermal insulation properties and security. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.

A reputable Oakley cat flap installer will meticulously get the dimensions of your existing pane and order a custom-made one from a local glazing supplier. This new glazed panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its structure where your cat flap will be installed. This can take a week or so to manufacture, but it is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have obtained your new modified panel of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new unit fitted. The installation of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for new cat flap installations in Oakley, as was previously mentioned, are solid wood door panels. It is often best to employ the expert services of a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're at all unsure of cutting a hole in your back or front door. This kind of undertaking will not be too costly and is well worth doing correctly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that added peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. However, certain uPVC door panels have a steel lining for extra security, which could cause problems. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it might be easier to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't really want to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed in an external wall. This sort of installation is certainly better left to a specialist, as it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to execute. There are a couple of choices for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. Installation involves a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. An appropriate cat flap can then be mounted on both ends of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Oakley - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a wall, window or door, but it's damaged or not working properly, the current hole can hopefully still be used for installing a new one. An expert Oakley cat flap fitter will be glad to take off your old device and replace it with a fresh cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's secured.

If the new cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must make certain that the existing glass has been fabricated, cut and installed in the right way. If it's discovered that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass must be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
