This basic model can be improved on a little with magnetic strips to hold the flap in position, but it's still far from ideal because it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter into your property.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be enclosed in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and leave or get into your house, hence avoiding some undesirable visitors. The point that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar style of collar might be able to gain access to your house, is the drawback with this type of cat flap. An upgrade to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat owner.

If you've got a timber door on your home in Shaw, putting in a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Under no circumstances should you try and install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. These situations require the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have the knowledge and tools for this sort of installation.


Double Glazing Installations - If your new cat flap is going to be mounted on a double glazed door or window panel, and your hired "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the job immediately and give them the boot. A new cat flap cannot be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not just the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the insulating properties as well. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed panel made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Shaw cat flap fitter will measure your current pane and order a brand new one. As an integral part of its construction this new double glazing unit will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this pane to be made, but if you need a cat flap installed in an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. When your new panel of glass is delivered, the fitter will remove the old one, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" pane. It will now be possible to fit the cat flap.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. You or your fitter will need to ascertain what the internal structure of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC door panels are made with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest type of cat flap installation is in doors with one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be easier and cheaper in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could choose to install a cat flap in an outside wall of your house in Shaw. This sort of installment is undoubtedly best left to an expert, because it requires considerably more skill and equipment to execute. You could go for a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angled model that permits access via a pillar. A square hole will need to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. The cat flap you have chosen is then attached at either end to allow your cat to come and go as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Shaw - If your wall, window or door already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working, or is damaged, it is quite possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A specialist Shaw cat flap fitter will be happy to take out your old entry device and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any harm to the window, wall or door on which it is secured.

When the cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be important to make sure that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new flap. If the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
