This simple design can be marginally improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it is still a long way off being perfect since it enables other cats or animals to get into your house.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip version. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be encased in your cat's collar. No animal will be able to access or leave your home unless it is fitted with this special collar. Once again this is a pretty basic kind of cat flap, given that any other cat in the area who's got a similar style of collar can still access your property. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products because they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your pet. Only your furry friend gains access, thus adding an added layer of control and security.

Installing a cat flap that can be triggered by your pet's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines.

When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it unlocks and permits only your microchipped pets to enter/exit.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be fairly easy if you've got a solid wood door on your Silsden house, and reasonable DIY skills. But, if you're planning to fit it in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window, you should ask for outside help. These types of fittings require a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into an existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing damages not merely the strength and security of the glazing, but it takes away the insulating attributes too. In reality, it makes the glazing unsafe and it should never be attempted.

A specialist cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed pane and have a local Silsden glazing company knock up a new pane. So the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed unit will be provided with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it can take a week or two to manufacture. After fabrication, your old glass unit will be removed, and the brand new one put in its place. The installation of the cat flap will then be undertaken.
