If this sounds like a good idea to you, exactly what sort of cat flap should you go with?
The most fundamental kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut into an external door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to give some protection from the weather. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be good enough for most Raunds cat owners, who would prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for a main door to their property, although it may be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to wear a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased within it.

The drawback here is that any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar could perchance get into your home with this kind of cat flap.

But, if you are looking to fit it into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced PVC door, you need to seek outside help. These situations require the skills and expertise of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is sure to have have all the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation.
INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN RAUNDS
Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. A new cat flap can not be mounted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any kind of double glazing will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its strength, security and insulating attributes. In reality, it renders the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.
A specialist cat flap installer will measure your current double glazed pane and have a glazing firm knock up a new pane. This new panel will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as a part of its construction where the cat flap will be fitted. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it may take a couple of weeks to produce. After construction, the old glass panel can be taken out, and the new one put in its place. The installation of the cat flap can then be completed.
Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as we mentioned previously, the simplest alternatives for new cat flap installation in Raunds. If you're dubious about cutting a hole in your front door, it's it may be better to call in an expert to do the job for you. This sort of task will not be all that expensive and is well worth doing properly, if having your cat flap professionally installed gives you that added peace of mind.
uPVC Door Panels - It is quite feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. It is necessary to know the interior construction, because some door panels are steel lined for further security. A one-piece door panel allows for simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted uPVC door, it may be more cost effective to replace the panel with a single pane model.
Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons, you could always have a cat flap installed within an outside wall. Needing much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is undoubtedly better left to a specialist, if it is to be executed successfully. Almost all wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angular access via a pillar is also a possibility. This installation involves a square hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice can then be attached at either end to permit your feline friend to come and go as it wishes.
Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Raunds - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it is not working properly, or is damaged, it's quite possible to mount a replacement over the existing cavity. A reputable cat flap installer in Raunds will efficiently remove the old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without harming the surrounding window, door or wall.
When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it will be important to make certain that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. The glass pane must be taken out and substituted to avoid any safety and security issues, if it's found that this is not the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
