Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap.

If you've got a timber door on your home in Ross-on-Wye, fitting a cat flap yourself shouldn't be too difficult. However, if it has to be fitted in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should not even attempt to tackle it on your own.

Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your new cat flap, stop them right away and ask them to leave.

As part of its structure this new double glazing pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This may take a week or two to produce, but it's the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, your old glass panel can be removed, and the new modified one put in. The cat flap can then be mounted.
