The simplest sort of cat flap is basically that. A hole is cut into an external door and a bendable material is hung over it to give a bit of some protection from the weather. The vast majority of Tiptree cat owners would favour something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their home, although this could be acceptable for an outhouse or shed door.

This standard design is still a long way off being perfect as it allows other cats or animals a way to get into your property, however it can be improved on slightly by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.

The next step up from the magnetic strip style are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat must wear a collar boasting a magnet, RF or IR chip. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to open the flap and get into or leave your property, thus keeping out some undesirable visitors. The reality that any other moggy in the Tiptree area who's got a similar collar might be able to gain access to your property, is the downside with this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be improved to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system having an owner programmed unique identifier.

The kind of cat flap that is capable of identifying your cat's microchip, is the next level in Tiptree feline access security. The memory of these cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you've got more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unlocked when your cat is in the vicinity, only allowing entry or exit to animals that are microchipped.

The ability to lock it in place is important regardless which cat flap you are purchasing. Most cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking mechanism. This means that the cat flap can enable exit from your home only, permit access into your home only, be locked fully, or be set for two way exit and entry. This will provide you with a number of solutions on exactly how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night time. In keeping with your cat's and your needs, there's even the option to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the more advanced devices.

Fitting a cat flap on your own can be really easy if you have a solid timber door on your Tiptree property, and respectable DIY capabilities. Although, if it needs to be installed in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you shouldn't even attempt to tackle it by yourself. This kind of installation will require the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled carpenters who'll be happy to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who tries to drill a hole in your double glazing to put in your new cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave. It isn't possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazed window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any kind of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, along with its thermal insulation attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and renders the double glazing unsafe.

A specialist cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current double glazing unit and have a local glazing firm make a new one. As part of its construction this new double glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap in an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it can take a week or two to manufacture. Once you have acquired your new pane of glass, the old unit can be removed and the new panel installed. The installation of the cat flap can then be carried out.

Exterior Wooden Doors - As mentioned earlier in this article, timber door panels are the simplest alternative in relation to installing a new cat flap on your home in Tiptree. It's usually best to get in touch with a competent handyman or cat flap fitter, if you are at all unsure of cutting a big hole in your door. This kind of task will not be too costly and is really worth doing correctly, if getting your cat flap installed by a professional offers you that added peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into a uPVC door. However, certain uPVC doors have a steel lining for additional security, which may cause some issues. The easiest type of installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier overall to exchange the slatted pane for a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into your door, you could opt to install the cat flap on an outside wall of your home in Tiptree. Requiring far more equipment and skill, a wall cat flap installment is undoubtedly better left to a specialist, if it is to be accomplished successfully. You can go for a straight through tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model which permits access through a pillar. With this type of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square tube is inserted into a square hole neatly cut out of your specified wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be mounted on either end to enable your furry pal to exit and enter as it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Tiptree - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not functioning properly, the current hole in your door, window or wall can still be used providing that the new cat flap is of a similar size. Your cat flap fitter should be able to take off the unwanted cat flap, without causing damage to the surrounding wall, door or window, and install a brand new flap in its place for your cat.

Before fitting a new flap in double glazing that has been pre-cut, making certain that the existing glass has been made, cut and installed in the right way is crucial. The glass will have to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any safety and security issues, if it is found that this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the previous installation.
