A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a flexible material is placed over it to offer some protection from the elements. The vast majority of Viewpark cat owners would doubtless prefer something a tad more secure and weatherproof for an external door to their property, although this may be appropriate for a fence panel or outhouse door.

Because this solution will allow other creatures or cats to enter your property, it's not at all ideal, though it can be enhanced somewhat by keeping the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. With this form of cat flap, your cat will need to wear a collar featuring a magnet, IR or RF chip. No animal will be able to leave or get into your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. The point that any other cat in the area that's got a similar model of collar will be able to access your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. RF cat flaps and collar systems are the upgraded version of this equipment as they can be programmed by the pet's owner to recognise a unique identifier, specific to your cat.

The next step-up in feline access security is to consider the type of cat flap which recognises your cat's own microchip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got more than one cat). Whenever your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and permit solely your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

Whatever cat flap you purchase, it must be capable of being locked in place. The majority of cat flaps sold currently boast a 4-way locking mechanism. This allows your cat flap to be fully locked, enable only access into your home, enable exit only, or have two-way entry and exit capability. This offers complete control over how your cat flap functions both during the day and throughout the night. A few higher end devices can be programmed to perform specific functions according to the time of day, in keeping with your pet's and your requirements.

If you are pretty good at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you have a solid wood door on your Viewpark home. Under no circumstances should you try and fit a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. This type of installation requires the attention of a pro, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and talented carpenters who will be delighted to accept such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a so-called "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, send them on their way immediately. A new cat flap can't be mounted into an existing double glazed window pane or door panel. Making a hole in your double glazing damages not simply the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the thermal insulation attributes as well. Your double glazing will be made unsound, and it should never be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

It is necessary to get a new double glazed pane made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Viewpark cat flap installer will measure your current panel and order a brand new one. This new glazed pane will arrive with a hole pre-cut as part of its construction where your cat flap will be installed. You might have to wait a week or more for this special pane to be manufactured, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once your new panel of glass is delivered, the installer will remove the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. The installing of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally speaking be fitted into uPVC doors. You or your fitter will have to determine what the internal structure of you door actually is, since for added security some uPVC door panels are manufactured with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the best for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted type panel, it might be advisable to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - It's also feasible to have a cat flap installed in an outside wall of your house in Viewpark, if you don't wish to cut holes in your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires a bit more expertise and equipment to fit, so it is definitely better left to a specialist.

A neat square shaped hole will have to be made through your wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your furry friend can enter and exit the house whenever it wishes.

Replacing Your Existing Cat Flap in Viewpark - If you already have a cat flap fitted on a door, window or wall, but it's broken or not working properly, the current hole can, with luck, still be used for installing a new one. A trusted cat flap fitter in Viewpark will be able to remove the old,unwanted cat flap, and mount a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the surrounding window, wall or door.

If the new cat flap is being fitted into a pre cut hole in a double glazing panel, you must check that the glass has been manufactured, cut and installed correctly. The glass must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems, if you discover that this is not the case and corners were cut in the original installation.
