This simple design is still a long way from being ideal because it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter into your house, nevertheless it can be improved on a little by adding a magnetic strip to hold the flap in position.

Stepping up from a magnetic strip are magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip variations of cat flap. 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 one of these special collars, it will be unable to trigger the flap and get into or leave your home, thus preventing some unwelcome visitors. The point that any other moggy in the area that has a similar model of collar could possible get into your property, is the downside with this sort of cat flap.

Putting in a cat flap on your own can be fairly simple if you've got a solid timber door on your Walton-on-Thames property, and decent DIY skills. On no account should you try and fit a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window. Such situations call for the expertise and skills of a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is sure to have have the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel, immediately send them on their way. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into existing double glazed doors or window panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not just the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the thermal insulation attributes as well. The truth is, it makes the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be done.

A specialist cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current double glazing unit and have a local Walton-on-Thames glazing company knock up a new purpose made pane. This new panel will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap can be installed. This is the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door, even though it might take a couple of weeks to produce. When your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The fitting of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly possible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. Having said that, certain uPVC doors are lined with steel for additional security, which could cause issues. The simplest kind of installation is in doors having one single panel, consequently if you've got a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slatted panel for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or security reasons, you don't wish to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always choose to install a cat flap on an outside wall of your property in Walton-on-Thames.

Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so your cat can enter and exit your home whenever it wishes.

A reputable cat flap fitter in Walton-on-Thames will efficiently remove your old cat flap, and fit a brand new one in its place without causing damage to the wall, door or window.

Before attaching a new flap in double glazing which has been pre-cut, making certain that the current glass has been made and installed accurately is crucial.
