The simplest kind of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut in a door and a flexible material is fixed over it to give protection from the elements. Of course, this is really basic, and will not be good enough for most cat owners in Sheringham, who would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although it may be appropriate for a garden fence panel or outhouse door.

This basic design is still far from ideal because it allows other cats or creatures a way to get into your property, however it can be improved on to some degree by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip version. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to open the flap and leave or access your house, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. The downside here is that any other moggy in the area that has a similar style of collar might be able to access your house with this type of cat flap fitted. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap/collar system which provides a unique identifier which can be programmed by the home owner.

Installing a cat flap that can identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entrance security for felines. The details of your cat's micro-chip are programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you have several cats). Entry and exit can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap is unfastened whenever you cat is nearby.

When you are buying a cat flap, you should make sure that it's of a design that can be locked. Currently, nearly all cat flaps on the market feature a four way locking mechanism for added security. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, permit entry into your property only, enable only exit from your home, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This offers you a range of choices on how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. A few of the more expensive devices can be programmed to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, based on yours and your cat's needs.

If you're pretty decent at DIY, putting in a cat flap should not be that difficult, if you have a timber door on your house in Sheringham. But, if you're looking to install it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you ought to seek outside assistance. This type of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled carpenters who are happy to accept such work.

INSTALLING A CAT FLAP IN SHERINGHAM

Double Glazing Installations - If your cat flap is going to be installed in a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" attempts to drill a hole in it, stop the work immediately and give them their walking orders. A new cat flap can not be fitted into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Any type of double glazing will be ruined by cutting into it, and will take away its strength, security and insulating attributes. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should never be done.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Sheringham cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing unit and put in an order for a brand new one. This new panel will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction where the cat flap will be installed. You might have to wait a week or more for this special pane to be manufactured, however if you need a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is basically the only way to accomplish it. After fabrication, your old glass unit will be removed, and the new modified one put in. It will now be possible to install and set up the new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - The easiest option for new cat flap installations in Sheringham, as was previously mentioned, are solid wood door panels. If you are somewhat unsure about making a sizeable hole in your front door, you may be better off hiring an expert handyman or cat flap fitter instead. This should provide you with the peace of mind that you'll end up with a professionally installed cat flap, and that the job has been undertaken in the right and proper way.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in most cases. You'll have to verify what the interior construction of you door is, since for extra security some uPVC door panels are made with a reinforced steel lining. The simplest type of installation is in doors having a single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it may be easier and cheaper in the long run to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either security or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a hole cut into one of your doors, you could opt to install the cat flap in an external wall of your home in Sheringham. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more equipment and skill to fit, so it is certainly better left to a professional. Nearly all wall cat flap installations are a simple straight tunnel style, but right angled access through a pillar is also possible. Installation involves a neat square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to enable your furry pal to come and go as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Sheringham - If you've already got a cat flap installed on your wall, door or window, but it's broken or not functioning properly, the current hole can hopefully be re-used for installing a new one. A professional Sheringham cat flap installer will be happy to remove your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the wall, door or window on which it's attached.

When the installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it is essential to confirm that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new flap. The panel will need to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found that this is not the case and corners were cut in the earlier installation.
