The most rudimentry sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole cut in a door with a flexible piece of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat climb through. Most Painswick cat owners would doubtless prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an exterior door to their property, although this may be okay for an outhouse or shed door.

This uncomplicated design can be slightly improved upon with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, but it's still far from perfect as it allows other cats or animals a means by which to get into your house.

The next step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it. No animal will be able to leave or access your home unless it's equipped with this special collar. Once again this is a pretty simple form of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your house. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products and can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. Your purrfect companion is the sole one to get access, offering an extra layer of security and control.

A model of cat flap that's can be recognised by your pet's microchip, is the next stage in Painswick feline entrance security. The microchip number is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one pet). Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is in close proximity.

No matter what cat flap you buy, it must have the ability to be locked in place. Most cat flaps sold today have a four way locking system. Which means that the cat flap can permit access into your property only, enable exit only, be locked fully, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This offers full control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. In keeping with yours and your pet's needs, there is even the possibility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with a few of the more advanced models.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be that difficult, if you've got a timber door on your Painswick home. Under no circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door. These situations call for the skills and expertise of an experienced cat flap fitter or handyman, who is sure to have have the equipment and knowledge for this type of installation project.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap is going to be fitted into a double glazing door or window panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work immediately and give them their marching orders. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazed window or door panels. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not simply the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the thermal insulation attributes as well. In fact, it makes your glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

An experienced cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazed unit and have a local Painswick glazing company make a new one. As an integral part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted nicely into. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or more to manufacture. As soon as your new pane of glass is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap can then be fitted.

Exterior Wooden Doors - As stated earlier in this article, wooden door panels are the simplest option when it comes to installing a new cat flap on your home in Painswick. It is often better to hire the services of a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you are in any way uncomfortable with cutting a big hole in your front or back door. This kind of undertaking won't be too expensive and is worthwhile doing properly, if having your cat flap expertly installed gives you that added peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. You or your installer will need to find out what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for additional security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it may be more cost effective to replace the panel with a single panel style.

Wall Installation - It is also possible to have a cat flap mounted into an outside wall of your home in Painswick, if you don't wish to cut chunks out of your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons. This type of installation is definitely best left to the pros, since it calls for much more equipment and skill to accomplish. The majority of cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, but right angular access through a pillar is also a possibility. With this sort of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted into a square shaped hole cut into your wall. The cat flap you have chosen is then mounted on either end to permit your furry pal to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Painswick - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a window, door or wall, but it's broken or not working correctly, the existing hole can, with luck, be re-used for the installation of a replacement. A professional Painswick cat flap fitter will be happy to take out your old entry device and swap it for a new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the window, wall or door on which it's attached.

If the replacement cat flap is going to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must ensure that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way. The glass will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
