Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible piece of material placed over it, to give protection from the weather, but allow the cat pass through it. Most cat owners in Stocksbridge would favour something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this might be acceptable for an outhouse or shed door.

Since this option can allow other cats or animals to enter your property, it isn't at all ideal, although it can be improved on to some degree by holding the flap in position with the addition of magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. This requires your cat to have a collar which has either an IR, RF chip or magnet encased in it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your home unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The downside here is that any other cat in the area who has a similar model of collar might be able to access your home with this type of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of these products as they can be programmed by the user to recognise a unique identifier, distinct to your cat.

The kind of cat flap that is can be operated by your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Stocksbridge feline access security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Whenever your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow solely your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.

Being able to lock it in position is vital no matter which cat flap you're purchasing. These days, the majority of cat flaps available on the market feature a 4-way locking system for extra flexibility. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, enable access into your premises only, permit exit from your home only, or have two-way exit and entrance functionality. This offers you a variety of alternatives on precisely how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. Some top-end devices can be programmed to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, based on your pet's and your needs.

If you're pretty good at do-it-yourself, fitting a cat flap shouldn't be too difficult, if you have a solid timber door on your property in Stocksbridge. However, if it needs to be fitted into a double glazed window panel or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt to tackle it on your own. These types of fittings call for a professional installation by a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your 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 mounted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing destroys not just the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the insulation properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazing pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Stocksbridge cat flap installer will measure your existing unit and put in an order for the new one. As a part of its construction this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which the cat flap can be installed neatly into. This can take one or two weeks to produce, however it is really the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door. Once you've obtained your new modified glass panel, the old one can be taken out and the new one installed. The cat flap can then be installed.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can usually be fitted into uPVC doors. Nonetheless, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which may cause some problems. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for installing cat flaps, so if yours has a slatted type door panel, it may be better to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can have a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. This kind of installation is definitely better left to an expert, as it requires far more skill and equipment to execute. There are several possibilities for this sort of installation, including a straight through tunnel version, or a right angular (through pillar) adaption. This installation involves a square hole being cut through your wall, into which a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your feline friend can exit and enter the house whenever it wants.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Stocksbridge - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either broken or not operating correctly, the existing hole in your door, wall or window can still be used so long as the new cat flap is of a similar size. A specialist Stocksbridge cat flap installer will be happy to take out your old device and replace it with a fresh cat flap without causing any damage to the door, window or wall on which it's mounted.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed panel, it will be necessary to make sure that this was previously done correctly, before fitting the new flap. The glass will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it's found that this isn't the case and corners were cut during the earlier installation.
