However, what form of cat flap is most suitable for your situation?

The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is essentially that. A sheet of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. Naturally, this is really basic, and will not be sufficient for most cat owners in Ossett, who would prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although it may be okay for a fence panel or outhouse door.

This simple model can be to some degree improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it's still a long way off being ideal since it enables other cats or animals to enter your home.

A step up from the magnetic strip pattern are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased in it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your property, therefore keeping out some undesirable visitors. Once again this is a relatively basic form of cat flap, because any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar style of collar will be able to access your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the home owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your pet. Access is limited to your furry companion alone, delivering an additional layer of security and control.

The next stage in feline entry security is to consider the kind of cat flap which recognises your cat's micro-chip. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it will unlock and permit just your microchipped pets to exit or enter.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in place. For extra flexibility, most cat flaps boast a 4-way locking system nowadays. Which means it's got the capability to enable only entry into your home, allow exit from your property only, be locked fully, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers you alternatives for all times of night and day, to control precisely how your cat flap works. In line with your pet's and your requirements, there is even the option to carry out different functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the more expensive devices.

If you have a wood door in your house in Ossett, putting in you own cat flap should not be all that complicated. Although, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it by yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have all the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap needs to be fitted into a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job straight away and show them the gate. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Any kind of double glazing will be ruined by drilling or cutting into it, and will detract from its thermal insulation properties, security and strength. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances.

A specialist cat flap fitter will measure up the existing double glazed pane and have a local glazing company knock up a new purpose made pane. So your cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure. 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 two to manufacture. As soon as your new glass panel arrives, the fitter will take out the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" pane. The cat flap will then be mounted.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for new cat flap installations in Ossett, as was previously mentioned, are solid timber door panels. It's generally advisable to employ the expert services of a specialist handyman or cat flap fitter, if you're uncomfortable with making a hole in your back or front door. This will give you the reassurance that you are going to wind up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the job has been done in the right and proper way.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be installed into uPVC doors. You'll have to establish what the interior construction of you door actually is, since for additional security certain uPVC door panels are made with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest type of installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could opt to install a cat flap into an external wall of your property. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, so it is definitely better left to a professional. There are a number of options for this installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angled (through pillar) pattern. Installation involves a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. An appropriate cat flap can then be mounted on both sides of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Ossett - If your window, wall or door is already fitted with a cat flap, but it isn't working properly, or is damaged, it's entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. Your cat flap fitter should be able to take off the old cat flap, without damaging the window, door or wall, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

When your installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is necessary to make sure that this was previously done accurately, before fitting the new cat flap. If the previous installation was a bodge job, the glass must be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new flap.
