Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material fixed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but let the cat pass through. Of course, this is really basic, and will rarely good enough for most Penkridge cat owners, who would favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their house, although it may be suitable for a shed door or fence panel.

This basic design is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other creatures or cats to get into your house, but it can be improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in place.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to wear a collar which has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. No animal will be able to access or leave your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. The reality that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar model of collar might be able to access your house, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier. Your furry friend is the sole one to get access, offering an additional layer of security and control.

The type of cat flap which is can be triggered by your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in Penkridge feline entrance security. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.

No matter which cat flap you purchase, it should have the ability to be locked in place. Currently, nearly all cat flaps available on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. This means that it's got the capability to be fully locked, allow exit from your property only, permit only admittance into your premises, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers full control over the operation of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. A few of the top-end models can be set to perform specific functions according to the time of day, based on your cat's and your needs.

If you're fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing a cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you have a timber door on your Penkridge home. But, if you're looking to fit it into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must ask for outside assistance. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. It is simply not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any kind of double glazing will damage its security and strength, as well as its thermal properties. Your double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.

A reliable Penkridge cat flap installer will meticulously take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. This new glazed pane will arrive with a hole cut out as part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it may take a week or two to manufacture. Once you have acquired your new adapted pane of glass, the old one can be removed and the new panel fitted. It's now possible to install your new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - As stated earlier, solid wooden door panels are the least complicated option in relation to installing a new cat flap on your home in Penkridge. If you're somewhat unsure of creating a sizeable hole in your back or front door, you may be happier bringing in a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter instead. This should give you the satisfaction of knowing that you will finish up with a professionally installed cat friendly flap, and that the job has been accomplished correctly and without causing harm to your door.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. Nonetheless, some uPVC doors have a steel lining for extra security, which could cause problems. A one piece panel enables simpler installation, so if you have a slatted uPVC door, it might be more economical to swap the panel for a single pane type.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can get a cat flap installed on an external wall. This kind of installation is definitely best left to a specialist, as it calls for far more equipment and skill to execute. You will find there are a couple of choices for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) configuration. This installation involves a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at both ends to permit your cat to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Penkridge - If your door, wall or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to fit a replacement into the current hole. Your cat flap installer should be able to take off the old cat flap, without harming the window, wall or door, and install a brand new flap for your cat.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it is necessary to check that this was previously done accurately, before fixing the new flap. If corners were cut with the previous installation, the pane will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues with the new flap.

Cat flaps yield a plethora of advantages for both the cats and those who own them:

  1. Better Control: For enhanced control, some advanced cat flaps can be programmed and synchronised with your cat's microchip or a special collar tag, ensuring that only your cat has the ability to use the flap, thereby regulating their comings and goings.
  2. Enhanced Security: With locking mechanisms installed, several cat flaps can be set to admit only chosen cats, effectively keeping out uninvited visitors. This enhances the security of homes by preventing the entry of stray animals and potential dangers.
  3. Independence for Cats: Known for their independent nature, cats benefit from cat flaps as they allow exploration of the outdoors, exercise, and the satisfaction of curiosity at their own leisure, leading to a healthier, happier life.
  4. Less Litter Box Odours: Cats that can relieve themselves outdoors may use the litter box less regularly, potentially leading to less frequent cleaning and reduced litter box odours within your property.
  5. Less Door Scratching: Does your cat turn into a scratching tornado when waiting? The constant backwards and forwards can lead to damaged doors. Cat flaps provide an independent exit and entry point, potentially reducing this unwelcome scratching.
  6. Convenience for Owners: The necessity for owners to pause their daily routines to allow their cats entry or exit is eliminated. This proves especially advantageous for those with busy lives or irregular timetables.
  7. Reduced Stress: Cat flaps alleviate the burden of constantly having to monitor and open the door for your cat, reducing stress for both you and your furry friend, who can now independently go in and out without waiting for your help.
