The most straightforward style of cat flap, is merely that. A hole is cut in an exterior door and a bendable material is fixed over the gap to offer some protection from the elements. Obviously, this is really basic, and will not be sufficient for most cat owners in Wareham, who would doubtless prefer something a little more weatherproof and secure for an exterior door to their house, although it could be appropriate for a shed or outhouse door.

Since this option permits other animals or cats to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, although it can be improved on somewhat by keeping the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap, are the next step up from the basic magnetic strip variation. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your home, therefore preventing some unwanted visitors. The drawback here is that any other cat in the Wareham area who's got a similar style of collar might be able to access your house when using this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this device is a RF cat flap/collar system which provides a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat owner.

A cat flap that is able to identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next level in feline entry 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 provide exclusive access. When your cat comes into close vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits only your microchipped pets to exit/enter.

Whenever you're purchasing a cat flap, you must make sure it is of a design that can be locked. For extra flexibility, the majority of cat flaps feature a 4-way locking system these days. This means that it has the capability to allow only admittance into your premises, allow exit from your house only, be locked fully, or be put in two way exit and entry mode. This provides total control over how your cat flap operates both throughout the day and during the night. Some of the top-end cat flaps can be set to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, in keeping with yours and your cat's requirements.

If you have a wood door in your house in Wareham, installing a cat flap yourself should not be that hard. Although, if it has to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you should under no circumstances even attempt it by yourself. This kind of installation requires the attention of a professional, and there are specialist cat flap installers and skilled odd job men who'll be glad to undertake such work.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to hire somebody who endeavours to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to put in your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap cannot be installed into a pre-existing double glazing window pane or door panel. Drilling or cutting into any sort of double glazing will damage its security and strength, as well as its thermal insulation properties. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.

It will be necessary to obtain a new double glazed unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Wareham cat flap fitter will measure your existing unit and order the new one. So your cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new glazed panel will be provided with a hole pre-cut as a part of its construction. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, although it can take a week or more to produce. Once you have obtained your new adapted pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new panel fitted. The cat flap will then be installed.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be mounted into uPVC doors in many cases. You or your installer will need to find out what the internal construction of you door is, because for additional security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a steel lining. A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be less expensive to swap the panel for a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you do not wish to have a hole cut into your doors, whether for security or aesthetic reasons, you can opt for a cat flap to be installed on an outside wall. Requiring much more skill and equipment, a wall cat flap installment is definitely best left to a professional, if it is to be executed correctly. You could opt for a straight-through tunnel design, or even a right angle model which enables access through a pillar. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, open ended square insert is fitted into a square hole made into your selected wall. A cat flap is then attached to each end of the hole.

A good cat flap installer in Wareham will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and fit a brand new one as a replacement without causing damage to the window, door or wall.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazed pane which has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been manufactured and installed in the right way is vital. The pane will need to be taken out and exchanged to avoid any security and safety issues, if it is found that this isn't the case and corners were cut in the previous installation.
