The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A hole in a door with a flexible bit of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but permit the cat go through. Obviously, this is really basic, and won't be adequate for most Steyning cat owners, who would no doubt prefer something a bit more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their house, although it may be acceptable for a shed door or fence panel.

This basic design can be improved on slightly with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, but it's still a long way from being perfect as it allows other animals or cats to enter into your home.

Magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a step up from the magnetic strip variation. This requires your cat to wear a collar that has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased within it. No animal is going to be able to leave or access your property unless it's equipped with one of these special collars. Again this is a relatively basic kind of cat flap, because any other cat in the area that's got a similar collar can gain access to your house. An upgrade to this equipment is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the householder.

A cat flap which is can be triggered by your cat's own micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline access security. You need to enter the number of your cat's microchip into the memory the cat flap (which is battery powered), and if you have several cats it will accept multiple entries. Whenever your cat passes close to the flap, it unlocks and allows just your micro-chipped pets to exit/enter.

When you're buying a cat flap, you must make certain that it is of a type that can be locked. Most cat flaps sold nowadays boast a 4-way locking mechanism. This means that it has the capability to be fully locked, allow exit only, permit only admittance into your premises, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers complete control over how your cat flap works both during the day and throughout the night time. Some of the more advanced cat flaps can be programmed to carry out different functions according to the time of day, in line with your cat's and your requirements.

If you've got a wood door in your property in Steyning, installing a cat flap yourself shouldn't be all that complicated. Under no circumstances should you try to install a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If you hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your cat flap, stop them immediately and ask them to leave. A new cat flap cannot be fitted into an existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, as well as its insulation attributes. The double glazing will be rendered unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

A specialist cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazed unit and have a glazing company knock up a new purpose made pane. As a part of its construction this new pane will have a pre-cut hole, which the cat flap can be installed snugly into. You might have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this pane to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. Once you've acquired your new glass panel, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. It's now possible to install and set up the new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, timber door panels are the simplest alternative when it comes to cat flap installation on your house in Steyning. If you are somewhat uncertain about making a hole in your front door, you may be happier hiring a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This will provide you with the reassurance that you will end up with an expertly installed cat flap, and that the job has been completed in the right and proper way.

Cat Flap Installation Steyning West Sussex

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be used for installing a cat flap. Nevertheless, certain uPVC doors have got a steel lining for further security, which may cause some problems. The easiest type of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slatted panel with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of your door, you could always opt to install the cat flap into an outside wall of your home in Steyning. Requiring much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely best left to a specialist, if it is to be accomplished correctly. You can go for a straight-through tunnel design, or perhaps a right angled version that allows access through a pillar. A square shaped hole will need to be made through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to permit your furry pal to exit and enter as it pleases.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Steyning - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not operating properly, the current hole in your door, wall or window can be fitted with a replacement providing the new flap is of an equivalent size. A competent cat flap installer in Steyning will efficiently remove your old cat flap, and mount a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding wall, door or window.

If the replacement cat flap is to be mounted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must make sure that the existing glass has been made and installed in the right way. If it's discovered that the previous installation was a bodge up, the pane will have to be taken out and replaced to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
