A cat flap at its most basic is merely that. A hole in a door with a flexible sheet of material hung over it, to give protection from the elements, but let the cat pass through it. The majority of cat owners in Stony Stratford would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their house, although this might be suitable for a garden fence panel or shed door.

Since this solution can allow other animals or cats to enter your home, it is not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced a little by holding the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

Magnetically controlled, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. No animal will be able to get into or leave your property unless it's fitted with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar model of collar can still gain access to your property when using this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this equipment is an RF cat flap/collar system which features a unique identifier that can be programmed by the pet's owner.

The next level in feline entry security is to fit the kind of cat flap that recognises your cat's own microchip. You need to enter the details of your cat's micro-chip into the cat flap's memory (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 permits only your micro-chipped pets to exit or enter.

Whenever you're buying a cat flap, you must ensure that it is of a type that can be locked. These days, the majority of cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking mechanism for extra flexibility. Which means that the cat flap can permit only exit from your home, be locked fully, enable admission into your home only, or be set for two way exit and entry. This will provide you with a number of options on exactly how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. The facility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and based on yours and your cat's needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end models of cat flap.

If you've got a wood door in your house in Stony Stratford, installing a cat flap yourself should not be too difficult. Although, if it needs to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should on no account even attempt to tackle it by yourself. Such situations require the expertise and skills of a specialist cat flap fitter or carpenter, who'll have all the knowledge and equipment for this sort of installation project.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ somebody who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. New cat flaps can't be fitted into pre-existing double glazing window or door panels. Drilling or cutting into any type of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, along with its thermal attributes. Actually, it makes your glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be done.

A reliable Stony Stratford cat flap fitter will carefully measure up your existing unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing supplier. So that your cat flap can be snugly installed into it, this new double glazed unit will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure. You might have to wait two weeks or so for this pane to be manufactured, but if you want a cat flap installed in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is the only way to accomplish it. As soon as your new panel of glass shows up, the fitter will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The cat flap can then be mounted.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The simplest alternative for new cat flap installations in Stony Stratford, as was stated earlier in this article, are solid wooden door panels. If you are somewhat uncomfortable with cutting a sizeable hole in your front or back door, you might be happier getting in touch with an expert cat flap fitter or handyman instead. This kind of project won't be all that expensive and is worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap professionally installed offers you that additional peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, because some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for further security. A one-piece panel allows for easier installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it may be more cost effective to exchange this panel for a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always choose to install the cat flap in an outside wall of your property. Needing far more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap install is definitely better left to the pros, if it is to be executed correctly. There are a couple of options for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel design, or a right angle (through pillar) configuration. Installation involves a square shaped hole being cut through the wall of your choice, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap of your choice is then mounted on both ends to permit your furry pal to exit and enter as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Stony Stratford - If you already have a cat flap fitted on your window, wall or door, but it is broken or not operating correctly, the current hole can, with luck, be re-used for installing a new one. A professional Stony Stratford cat flap fitter will gladly take out your old unit and replace it with a brand new cat flap without causing any harm to the wall, door or window on which it is attached.

When your installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing panel, it will be essential to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before attaching the new flap. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge up, the glass will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues with the new cat flap.
