Essentially, a cat flap at its most fundamental is simply that. A bit of bendable material placed over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to pass through, but keep out the elements. Most cat owners in Worthing would prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although this might be okay for an outhouse door or garden fence panel.

Because this option will allow other cats or creatures to enter your home, it's not at all recommended, although it can be enhanced to some extent by holding the flap in position by adding magnetic strips.

Stepping up from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap. In this case, either a magnet, IR or RF chip will be fitted into your cat's collar. What this means is that any animal that does not have one of these special collars can't leave or access your house. Again this is a relatively simple type of cat flap, given that any other cat in the neighbourhood who has a similar collar can easily get into your home. Even these cat flaps can be improved to some degree with an RF cat flap/collar system providing an owner programmed unique identifier. Your purrfect companion is the sole one to get access, offering an extra layer of control and security.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to consider the kind of cat flap that recognises your pet's micro-chip. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries can be made if you have several cats). Exit and entry can only be accomplished by microchipped animals, and the flap will be unlocked whenever you cat is in close proximity.

Being able to lock it in position is essential no matter which cat flap you are purchasing. The majority of cat flaps sold nowadays feature a four way locking mechanism. This means that it's got the capability to be fully locked, permit exit only, enable only admittance into your house, or be put in two-way exit and entry mode. This offers you solutions for all times of day and night, to have control over precisely how your cat flap works. In keeping with your pet's and your needs, there is even the possibility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with several of the top-end devices.

If you're fairly good at DIY, putting in a cat flap shouldn't be too much of a challenge, as long as you have a solid timber door on your Worthing home. On no account should you attempt to fit a cat flap in a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door. These kinds of fixtures call for a professional installation by a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your cat flap has to be fitted into a double glazing panel, and your chosen "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them immediately and give them the boot. It's just not possible to install a new cat flap into a double glazed door panel or window pane. Making a hole in the double glazing destroys not only the security and strength of the panel, but it removes the insulation attributes as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.

A reliable Worthing cat flap installer will diligently take the precise measurements of your current panel and order a tailor-made one from a local glazing company. So that the cat flap can be perfectly fitted into it, this new glazed pane will arrive with a pre-cut hole as part of its construction. This is the only way to install a cat flap in an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or two to produce. Once you have received your new modified pane of glass, the old one can be taken out and the new panel fitted. The fitting of your cat flap will then be concluded.

uPVC Door Panels - It is perfectly feasible to install a cat flap into a uPVC door. You or your installer will have to ascertain what the interior structure of you door actually is, because for extra security some uPVC doors are manufactured with a steel lining. A one piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a uPVC door that is slatted, it might be more cost effective to replace the panel with a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you do not want to have a hole cut into your doors, for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can get a cat flap installed in an outside wall. This type of installment is undoubtedly better left to an expert, since it requires far more skill and equipment to execute. There are a number of choices for this installation, including a straightforward version, or a right angled (through pillar) model. With this kind of installation a metal or plastic, open ended square insert is fitted into a square shaped hole neatly cut out of your selected wall. A cat flap can then be mounted on each side of the hole.

A specialist Worthing cat flap fitter will be glad to take out your old device and swap it for a new cat flap without causing any damage to the wall, window or door on which it's attached.

Before fitting a new flap in a double glazing pane that's been previously pre-cut, confirming that the existing glass has been cut and installed accurately is vital. The glass pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems, if it's found that this is not the case and a bodge job was made of the earlier installation.
