Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is just that. A sheet of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. Of course, this is really basic, and won't be adequate for most Staveley cat owners, who would prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although it might be okay for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.

Since this option allows other cats or creatures to enter your home, it isn't at all recommended, though it can be improved on to some degree by keeping the flap in place by adding magnetic strips.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. In this case, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. Unless an animal is equipped with one of these special collars, it will not be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your property, hence preventing some undesirable visitors. The downside here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who's got a similar model of collar can get into your home with this sort of cat flap installed. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the best version of these products as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat. Only your feline friend gets access, thus adding an added layer of security and control.

A model of cat flap that is able to identify your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in Staveley feline access security. The microchip details are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). The flap is unlocked whenever your cat is nearby, only permitting exit or entry to pets that have a micro-chip.

Being able to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you are purchasing. For added flexibility, the majority of cat flaps have a four way locking mechanism these days. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, permit admittance into your property only, permit only exit from your home, or have two way exit and entry capability. This will provide you with alternatives for all times of night and day, to have control over how your cat flap functions. Based on yours and your pet's requirements, there is even the option to carry out particular functions according to the time of day, with several of the high end devices.

If you are pretty good at DIY, fitting your own cat flap should not be that difficult, as long as you have a solid wood door on your property in Staveley. But, if you are intending to install it in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you must ask for outside assistance. This sort of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who are ready to undertake such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ someone who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your cat flap, stop them without delay and ask them to leave. A new cat flap can not be installed into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazing will be damaged by cutting into it, and will detract from its thermal attributes, security and strength. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing unit made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Staveley cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current unit and put in an order for the new one. To ensure that the cat flap can be perfectly installed into it, this new double glazed pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or more to manufacture. As soon as your new panel of glass arrives, the fitter will remove the old unit, and replace it with the new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap will then be mounted.

External Wooden Doors - The easiest alternative for new cat flap installations in Staveley, as was mentioned previously, are wooden door panels. It is usually wise to call on a competent carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're in any way unsure of making a hole in your door. This should give you the reassurance that you are going to finish up with an expertly fitted cat flap, and that the job has been done properly.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be suitable for installing a cat flap. You will have to determine what the interior structure of you door is, since for additional security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a reinforced steel lining. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be easier and cheaper overall to exchange the slats for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for security or aesthetic reasons, you do not wish to have a chunk cut out of one of your doors, you could always decide to install your cat flap into an external wall of your home. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a little more equipment and skill to fit, so it's certainly best left to a specialist. Almost all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnel style, however right angled access via a pillar can also be achieved. Installation calls for a neat square hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, square open ended insert is fitted. A suitable cat flap can then be fitted to both sides of the hole.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Staveley - If you already have a cat flat, but it's either broken or not operating properly, the existing hole in your door, window or wall can be fitted with a replacement providing the new flap is of a comparable size. An experienced Staveley cat flap fitter will gladly remove your old device and swap it for a brand new cat flap without causing any damage to the door, wall or window on which it's secured.

If the new cat flap is to be fitted in a pre cut hole in double glazing, you must double check that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way. If it becomes obvious this is not the case, and the previous owners have cut corners to install their cat flap, the glass pane will need to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security issues.
