The most rudimentry kind of cat flap is essentially that. A hole is cut into an external door and a bendable material is hung over it to give protection from the weather. Whilst this may be suitable for a shed door or fence panel, the vast majority of cat owners in Whitefield would no doubt prefer something a little more secure and weatherproof for an outside door to their property.

This standard model can be improved on slightly with a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place, but it's still a long way from being ideal since it enables other creatures or cats to enter into your house.

A step up from the magnetic strip version are infra-red or RF chip, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be enclosed in your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that doesn't have a special collar cannot access or leave your property. The fact that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar style of collar could perhaps get into your home, is the downside with this sort of cat flap. An upgrade to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the pet's owner. Only your purrfect companion gets access, thus adding an additional layer of control and security.

The next stage in feline entry security is to install the kind of cat flap which identifies your pet's microchip. The number of your cat's micro-chip is programmed into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries are possible if you've got several cats). When your cat is close to the flap, it will unlock and permit just your microchipped pets to use the entrance/exit.

Whatever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in position. Most cat flaps sold currently feature a four way locking system. This means that the cat flap can be locked fully, enable exit only, permit admittance into your premises only, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This provides you with a number of solutions on precisely how your cat flap functions at all times of the day and night. In line with your cat's and your needs, there is even the option to perform specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the high end models.

If you are fairly decent at DIY, fitting your own cat flap should not be too difficult, if you have a wooden door on your property in Whitefield. On no account should you try and install a cat flap in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your new cat flap, stop them at once and ask them to leave. It's just not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the glazing, but it compromises the insulating attributes too. In fact, it makes the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be done.

A trustworthy Whitefield cat flap installer will diligently take the precise measurements of your current unit and order a ready prepared one from a local glazing company. This new glazed panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where your cat flap will be fitted. This may take two weeks or so to produce, but it is basically the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. Once you have obtained your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. Your cat flap can then be put in.

Exterior Wooden Doors - Timber door panels are, as I already mentioned, the simplest options for cat flap installation in Whitefield. It's usually better to hire the services of a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter, if you're in any way unsure about cutting a hole in your door.

uPVC Door Panels - uPVC doors can be sometimes be suitable for a cat flap. Having said that, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for further security, which could cause problems. The designs of door with a one-piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be better to swap this for a single pane.

Wall Installation - If you do not really want to cut a hole in your doors, either for aesthetic or security reasons, you can have a cat flap installed within an exterior wall. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires considerably more equipment and expertise to install, therefore it's certainly better left to a specialist. You can go with a straightforward tunnel style, or even a right angled model which enables access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will need to be cut through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, square open ended tube. Each end of the hole is then fitted with an appropriate cat flap so that your feline friend can exit and enter the house whenever it desires.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Whitefield - If your window, door or wall already has a cat flap fitted, but it's stopped working effectively, or is damaged, it is perfectly possible to fit a replacement into the current cavity. A trustworthy cat flap fitter in Whitefield will efficiently remove your old,unwanted cat flap, and fix a brand new one as a replacement without damaging the surrounding wall, window or door.

When your installation involves a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be necessary to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before attaching the new cat flap. The panel will need to be removed and exchanged to avoid any security and safety problems, if it becomes obvious that this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
