A cat flap at its most basic is just that. A hole is cut in an external door and a flexible material is placed over the gap to give some protection from the weather. The vast majority of Willaston cat owners would no doubt favour something a little more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this might be okay for a fence panel or shed door.

As this option allows other cats or animals to enter your house, it isn't at all recommended, though it can be improved on a little by keeping the flap in place by adding a magnetic strip.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red variations of cat flap. In this case, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be encased in your cat's collar. No animal will be able to get into or leave your house unless it is equipped with this special collar. The drawback here is that any other moggy in the neighbourhood who has a similar collar will be able to gain access to your house with this sort of cat flap installed. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some extent with an RF cat flap and collar system featuring an owner programmed unique identifier.

Choosing a cat flap which can identify your cat's microchip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines in Willaston. The number of your cat's micro-chip is entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). The flap will be unlocked when your cat is in close proximity, only allowing access to pets that are microchipped.

Regardless which cat flap you buy, it should have the ability to be locked in place. For added security, almost all cat flaps boast a four way locking system these days. This means that the cat flap can enable entrance into your house only, enable exit from your premises only, be fully locked, or be set for two-way entry and exit. This offers you choices for all times of day and night, to have control over how your cat flap operates. In line with yours and your pet's requirements, there's even the option to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with a number of the top-end models.

If you're fairly decent at DIY, putting in a cat flap should not be too much of a challenge, if you have a solid timber door on your Willaston home. However, if it needs to be fitted in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window, you shouldn't under any circumstances even attempt to tackle it yourself. These situations call for the expertise and skills of an experienced cat flap fitter or carpenter, who will have the equipment and knowledge for this sort of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your hired "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop the work right away and give them their marching orders. New cat flaps cannot be mounted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Cutting into any kind of double glazing will destroy its security and strength, along with its insulating attributes. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsafe.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazed unit made especially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Willaston cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your existing pane and order the new one. To ensure that your cat flap can be nicely installed into it, this new double glazing pane will be provided with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its structure. This is the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door, although it can take a couple of weeks to manufacture. Once you have taken possession of your new glass pane, the old unit can be removed and the new panel installed. It's now possible to install and set up the new cat flap.

External Wooden Doors - As previously mentioned, solid timber doors are the least complicated alternative with regards to cat flap installation on your property in Willaston. If you are somewhat uncomfortable with making an opening in your back or front door, you might be better off bringing in a professional carpenter or cat flap fitter instead. This type of task won't be too expensive and is worthwhile doing properly, if getting your cat flap expertly installed provides you with that additional peace of mind.

uPVC Door Panels - It's perfectly feasible to fit a cat flap into most uPVC doors. It pays to know the interior construction, as some door panels are steel lined for extra security. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors with a single panel, consequently if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier overall to replace the slats with a one-piece panel.

Wall Installation - If, for either aesthetic or safety reasons, you don't want to have a hole cut into your door, you could opt to install the cat flap on an exterior wall of your property. This form of installment is certainly better left to a professional, since it requires far more skill and equipment to accomplish. You could go for a straight through tunnel style, or perhaps a right angled model which enables access through a pillar. A square hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. An appropriate cat flap is then attached to each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Willaston - If your wall, door or window already has a cat flap fitted, but it has stopped working, or is damaged, it is entirely possible to mount a replacement over the current hole. A reputable cat flap fitter in Willaston will be capable of removing your unwanted cat flap, and fit a brand new one in its place without damaging the door, wall or window.

When your cat flap installation involves a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, it is important to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new flap. The glass panel will have to be removed and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems, if it is found this isn't the case and a bodge job was made of the original installation.
