A cat flap at its most basic is simply that. A hole is cut into an external door and a bendable material is placed over it to offer a bit of some protection from the elements. The vast majority of Rowlands Gill cat owners would favour something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their home, although this might be suitable for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This simple design is still a long way off being ideal since it allows other cats or creatures to enter into your home, however it can be improved on to some degree with the addition of a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip models of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either a magnet, IR or RF chip encased in it. Unless an animal is fitted with one of these special collars, it will be unable to open the flap and get into or leave your house, therefore avoiding some undesirable visitors. The drawback is that any other cat in the area who's got a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your home when using this kind of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system offering an owner programmed unique identifier.

The type of cat flap that is can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got several cats), to provide exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be accomplished by micro-chipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is close by.

Being able to lock it in position is important regardless which cat flap you are buying. For added security, most cat flaps have a 4-way locking mechanism these days. Which means it's got the capability to be fully locked, enable entry into your property only, allow exit only, or be put in two-way entry and exit mode. This offers complete control over the operation of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night. In line with your cat's and your requirements, there is even the possibility to carry out different functions according to the time of day, with some of the top-end models.

Installing a cat flap on your own can be pretty straightforward if you have a solid timber door, and respectable do-it-yourself skills. However, if it has to be fitted in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should not even attempt it on your own. This kind of installation will require the attention of a professional, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and skilled carpenters who are ready to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap has to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work straight away and show them the gate. It's just not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not merely the strength and security of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation properties as well. The double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should never be done in any circumstances whatsoever.

A reputable Rowlands Gill cat flap installer will diligently take the precise measurements of your existing panel and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing firm. As part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed neatly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it might take a week or so to produce. After construction, your old glass pane can be taken out, and the new modified one put in its place. The fitting of your cat flap will then be completed.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be installed into uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC door panels have got a steel lining for additional security, which may cause some issues. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be better to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not really wish to cut holes in your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires considerably more expertise and equipment to install, so it is certainly better left to a professional. You could opt for a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model which enables access via a pillar. This installation entails a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a plastic or metal, square open ended tube is inserted. A suitable cat flap can then be installed on each side of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Rowlands Gill - If you already have a cat flap installed on a window, wall or door, but it's damaged or not operating properly, the existing hole can, with a little luck, still be used for installing a new one. A competent cat flap fitter in Rowlands Gill will be capable of removing the old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the wall, door or window.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing panel that has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been made, cut and installed accurately is crucial. The glass pane will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
