The most straightforward type of cat flap, is simply that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is fixed over it to offer a bit of some protection from the weather. Even though this might be appropriate in a shed or outhouse door, the vast majority of Peacehaven cat owners would doubtless favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home.

Because this option can allow other creatures or cats to enter your house, it's not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

The next step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this kind of cat flap, your cat will have to wear a collar featuring an RF chip, IR or magnet. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your property unless it is fitted with this special collar. Again this is a fairly basic form of cat flap, since any other cat in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar can still gain access to your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment because they can be programmed by the cat owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat. An extra layer of security and control is achieved, guaranteeing that only your purrfect companion gains access.

The next step-up in feline access security is to install the type of cat flap that recognises your cat's micro-chip. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is close-by, only allowing exit or entry to animals that are microchipped.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it should be capable of being locked in position. Nowadays, the majority of cat flaps on the market have a four way locking system for added flexibility. This makes it possible for your cat flap to be fully locked, permit only exit from your home, permit only entry into your premises, or have two-way exit and entry capability. This provides you with a range of choices on precisely how your cat flap works any time of the day and night time. The facility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, and in line with yours and your pet's needs is also an option with some of the top-end models of cat flap.

If you have a wooden door on your property in Peacehaven, fitting a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. But, if you're planning to install it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you ought to ask for outside help. Such situations call for the skills and expertise of a competent cat flap fitter or odd job man, who'll have the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation project.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them their marching orders. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Making holes in the double glazing damages not just the strength and security of the glazing, but it removes the insulation attributes too. In actual fact, it renders your glazing unsound and it should never be done.

An experienced cat flap installer will take measurements of the existing double glazing unit and have a local glazing company make a new pane. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be fitted nicely into. You may have a one or two week wait for this to be made, but if you need a cat flap installed into an existing double glazed or patio door, this is really the only way to do it. Once your new glass panel is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The installation of your cat flap will then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be fitted into uPVC doors. You'll need to ascertain what the interior structure of you door is, because for added security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. The models of door with a one piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it may be better to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - It's also possible to get a cat flap mounted on an outside wall of your property in Peacehaven, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons. This kind of installation is definitely better left to a professional, as it calls for far more equipment and skill to accomplish. You will find there are a couple of possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) adaption. Installation entails a square hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at both ends to permit your feline friend to exit and enter as it wishes.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Peacehaven - If your wall, window or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it's stopped working, or is damaged, it's quite possible to mount a replacement over the current cavity. A professional Peacehaven cat flap fitter will gladly take off your old entry unit and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any damage to the window, wall or door on which it is secured.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazed panel that has been pre-cut, checking that the current glass has been manufactured, cut and installed correctly is vital. If it is found this is not the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass panel must be removed and replaced to avoid any security and safety problems.
