The most straightforward kind of cat flap, is just that. A hole is cut into a door and a flexible material is fixed over the gap to offer protection from the weather.

This simple model can be improved on with magnetic strips to keep the flap in position, however it is still a long way from being perfect as it allows other cats or animals to enter your property.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to leave or access your house unless it's fitted with this special collar. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, since any other moggy in the neighbourhood that has a similar model of collar can easily gain access to your property. An improvement to this product is an RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.

Having a cat flap that can be operated by your cat's own microchip, is the next step-up in access devices for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry are only possible for microchipped animals, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is nearby.

When you are buying a cat flap, you must make sure that it's of a design that can be locked into position. These days, most cat flaps available on the market feature a 4-way locking mechanism for added security. Which means that the cat flap can be fully locked, permit admission into your home only, allow only exit from your home, or be set for two way exit and entry. This gives total control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. A few more advanced models can be programmed to perform different functions according to the time of day, in keeping with yours and your pet's requirements.

If you are fairly good at do-it-yourself, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be that difficult, as long as you've got a solid timber door on your house in Rosyth. Although, if it needs to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you shouldn't even attempt it yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have all the knowledge and equipment for this kind of installation project.

INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN ROSYTH

Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap needs to be mounted on a double glazed window or door panel, and your chosen "tradesman" tries to drill a hole in it, stop the job right away and show them the gate. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the security and strength of the glazing, but it compromises the thermal insulation properties too. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make the double glazing unsafe.

A reputable Rosyth cat flap fitter will diligently measure up your current panel and order a custom-made one from a local glazing supplier. So the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new double glazing pane will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. This is the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it can take one or two weeks to manufacture. Once you have obtained your new modified pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new panel installed. The cat flap will then be mounted.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be often be fitted with a cat flap. It is necessary to know the internal construction, because some uPVC doors are lined with steel for extra security. The simplest type of installation is in doors with one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - It is also feasible to get a cat flap mounted into an outside wall of your property in Rosyth, if you don't want to cut chunks out of your doors, for aesthetic or security reasons. This form of installation is undoubtedly best left to the pros, as it requires much more equipment and skill to execute. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls involve a basic straight tunnelled style, however right angular access through a pillar is also possible. This installation calls for a square shaped hole being made through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your furry friend can get in and out of the house whenever it wants.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Rosyth - If you already have a cat flap fitted on your door, wall or window, but it is broken or not working correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for installing a replacement. Your cat flap installer will be able to remove the old cat flap, without harming the wall, door or window, and install a brand new flap for your cat.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing panel which has been previously pre-cut, confirming that the current glass has been fabricated, cut and installed in the right way is crucial. The glass pane must be removed and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues, if you discover this is not the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
