Because this option will allow other creatures or cats to enter your property, it's not at all recommended, though it can be enhanced a bit by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

The next step up from the magnetic strip design are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically operated cat flaps. This requires that your cat wears a collar that's got either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased inside it. No animal is going to be able to get into or leave your property unless it is equipped with one of these special collars. Once again this is a pretty basic kind of cat flap, as any other moggy in the area that's got a similar model of collar could possible get into your house. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain degree with an RF cat flap/collar system featuring a user programmed unique identifier.

The kind of cat flap which is can be triggered by your pet's micro-chip, is the next stage in Westerham feline entry security. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or more microchip numbers (if you have more than one cat), to give exclusive access. When your cat comes in the vicinity of the flap, it unlocks and permits solely your microchipped pets to enter or exit.

INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN WESTERHAM

Double Glazing Installation - If you call in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, send them packing immediately. It's just not possible to fit a new cat flap into a double glazing door panel or window pane. Any type of double glazing will be damaged by cutting into it, and will damage its security, strength and thermal insulation attributes. Your double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances whatsoever.

A specialist cat flap fitter will measure the existing double glazed unit and have a glazing firm make a new pane. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a hole cut out as an integral part of its construction where the cat flap can be fitted. This is really the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take one or two weeks to manufacture. When your new pane of glass arrives, the fitter will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The installing of the cat flap can then be carried out.
