A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material fixed over it, to keep out the elements, but permit the cat climb through. The majority of Penryn cat owners would no doubt prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their home, although this may be acceptable for a shed or outhouse door.

This standard model is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other cats or animals to get into your home, but it can be to some degree improved on by adding magnetic strips to hold the flap in position.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip version. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or access your house, therefore keeping out some unwelcome visitors. Once again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, as any other moggy in the neighbourhood that's got a similar collar can easily gain access to your property. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain degree with an RF cat flap and collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier. Only your furry friend gains access, thus adding an extra layer of control and security.

The next stage in feline access security is to consider a cat flap which identifies your cat's microchip. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). Entry and exit are only possible for microchipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened whenever you cat is in close proximity.

Regardless which cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in place. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps have a four way locking system these days. This means that the cat flap can enable only exit from your home, permit only access into your home, be fully locked, or be set for 2-way exit and entry. This gives total control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the night. Based on your cat's and your requirements, there is even the option to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with several of the higher end devices.

If you're pretty good at DIY, putting in a cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid timber door on your house in Penryn. Although, if it has to be fitted into a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should under no circumstances even attempt it on your own. This kind of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who will be ready to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling or cutting into any sort of double glazing will damage its security and strength, along with its thermal insulation properties. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsafe.

A trustworthy Penryn cat flap fitter will meticulously get the dimensions of your current unit and order a purpose made one from a local glazing company. To ensure that your cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new double glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take a week or more to manufacture. Once your new glass pane arrives, the installer will remove the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. Your cat flap can then be mounted.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be installed with a cat flap. You'll need to find out what the internal structure of you door actually is, since for added security certain uPVC door panels are manufactured with a galvanised steel lining. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the easiest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted style door panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you could have a cat flap installed in an external wall. This kind of installation is certainly best left to a professional, because it requires a lot more equipment and skill to execute. The majority of wall cat flap installations are a basic straight tunnel style, however right angle access via a pillar is also an option. This installation calls for a square hole being made through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap is then attached to each side of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Penryn - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a door, wall or window, but it's damaged or not working properly, the existing hole can hopefully still be used for installing a new one. Your cat flap fitter should be able to remove the old cat flap, without harming the window, door or wall, and fit a new flap in its place for your cat.

If the new cat flap is going to be installed into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must ensure that the glass has been manufactured and installed correctly. If it is found this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass will need to be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any safety and security issues.
