The most rudimentry style of cat flap is basically that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to keep out the elements, but allow the cat pass through it. Whilst this might be acceptable for a shed door or garden fence panel, the majority of cat owners in Shepton Mallet would no doubt favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their property.

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

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. This requires that your cat wears a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased inside it. Therefore any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your property. Again this is a fairly simple form of cat flap, as any other cat in the area who's got a similar model of collar will be able to gain access to your home. An improvement to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the householder.

The next step-up in feline access security is to consider a model of cat flap which identifies your cat's own micro-chip. The number of your cat's microchip is programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you've got several cats). The flap will be unfastened when your cat is close-by, only permitting access to pets that have a micro-chip.

Regardless of what cat flap you purchase, it must have the ability to be locked in position. For added flexibility, almost all cat flaps feature a four way locking mechanism nowadays. Which means that it has the capability to allow admittance into your home only, permit only exit from your home, be fully locked, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This offers you a variety of choices on precisely how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. A few of the high end cat flaps can be programmed to carry out particular functions in accordance with the time of day, in line with yours and your pet's requirements.

Fitting a cat flap yourself can be pretty simple if you've got a solid timber door on your Shepton Mallet house, and reasonable do-it-yourself skills. However, if it needs to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt to tackle it yourself. This type of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap installers and talented handymen who'll be delighted to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed window or door panel, immediately send them on their way. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes too. Actually, it makes the glazing unsafe and it shouldn't ever be done.

An experienced cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazed unit and have a local Shepton Mallet glazing firm make a new purpose made one. This new pane will be delivered with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it might take a week or more to manufacture. As soon as your new panel of glass is delivered, the installer will take out the old unit, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. Your cat flap will then be put in.

A project like this will not be expensive and will give you the assurance of knowing that your cat will be climbing through an expertly fitted flap.

uPVC Door Panels - It's quite feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which could cause problems. The models of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type panel, it may be easier to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not really want to cut holes in your doors, either for security or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed within an external wall. This kind of installation is certainly best left to the pros, as it calls for a lot more skill and equipment to execute. You can pick out a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angled model that enables entry through a pillar. A neat square shaped hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at both ends to permit your cat to enter and exit as it pleases.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Shepton Mallet - If you've already got a cat flap fitted on a wall, door or window, but it's broken or not functioning properly, the current hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a replacement. Your cat flap fitter will be able to remove the unwanted cat flap, without harming the wall, door or window, and install a new flap in its place for your cat.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be necessary to make sure that this was previously done accurately, before attaching the new cat flap. If it becomes obvious that this isn't the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass unit will have to be taken out and replaced with a new one to avoid any security and safety problems.
