The most fundamental style of cat flap, is simply that. A hole cut in a door with a bendable sheet of material placed over it, to provide protection from the elements, but allow the cat go through.

Since this solution allows other animals or cats to enter your house, it's not at all ideal, though it can be improved on to some extent by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Moving on from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. This involves your cat wearing a collar that's got either an RF chip, IR or magnet encased within it. This means that any animal that doesn't have a special collar can't leave or get into your property. The fact that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar style of collar will be able to gain access to your home, is the drawback with this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be enhanced to some degree with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.

Having a cat flap which can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next level in access security for felines in Reepham. The microchip number is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). Exit and entry can only be achieved by micro-chipped animals, and the flap is unlocked when you cat is nearby.

This will provide you with options for all times of night and day, to control exactly how your cat flap operates. In line with yours and your cat's needs, there's even the possibility to perform particular functions according to the time of day, with a number of the more advanced devices.

Under no circumstances should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. This sort of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who will be glad to take on such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and give them their marching orders. New cat flaps can not be installed into pre-existing double glazed window or door panels. Any kind of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will damage its thermal insulation properties, security and strength. Actually, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should not ever be done.

A reliable Reepham cat flap fitter will meticulously get the dimensions of your existing panel and order a purpose made one from a local glazing firm. So that your cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazed pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its structure. This is the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take two weeks or so to manufacture. Once you've received your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new unit installed. It's now possible to install and set up the cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most instances. You or your fitter will have to ascertain what the interior structure of you door is, because for extra security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a steel lining. The simplest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having a single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it might be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut into your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, therefore it is certainly best left to an expert.

Installation calls for a neat square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at both ends to permit your cat to exit and enter as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Reepham - If you've already got a cat flap installed on a door, wall or window, but it is damaged or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a replacement. A reliable cat flap installer in Reepham will efficiently remove your old cat flap, and mount a new one in its place without damaging the wall, door or window.
