The most straightforward type of cat flap, is simply that. A hole in a door with a bendable bit of material hung over it, to keep the elements out, but permit the cat climb through.

This basic design can be improved on with magnetic strips to hold the flap in place, however it's still far from ideal because it allows other cats or creatures a way to enter into your home.

Moving on from a basic magnetic strip are magnetically operated, RF chip or infra-red models of cat flap. With these, either an IR, RF chip or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Subsequently, any animal without one of these special collars can't get into or leave your property. The reality that any other moggy in the area who's got a similar style of collar could perhaps access your property, is the downside with this still fairly basic kind of cat flap. An improvement to this product is a RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier which can be programmed by the cat's owner.

Fitting a cat flap which can be operated by your cat's microchip, is the next level in entry gadgets for felines in Writtle. The details of your cat's micro-chip are entered into the memory of the battery powered cat flap (multiple entries can be made if you've got more than one pet). When your cat is in close proximity to the flap, it will unlock and allow only your micro-chipped pets to enter or exit.

Whichever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in place. Most cat flaps sold currently boast a four way locking mechanism. Which means that the cat flap can permit access into your premises only, be locked fully, enable exit from your property only, or be set for two-way exit and entry. This gives you options for all times of day and night, to have control over exactly how your cat flap operates. In line with yours and your cat's needs, there's even the option to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, with some of the more expensive devices.

If you are fairly decent at do-it-yourself, installing your own cat flap shouldn't be all that difficult, if you have a wooden door on your Writtle home. On no account should you attempt to install a cat flap in a reinforced PVC door or in a double glazed window. These kinds of fixtures require a professional installation from a dependable cat flap fitter or odd job man with the necessary skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installations - If you hire someone who attempts to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them right away and request that they leave. New cat flaps can't be mounted into existing double glazing window or door panels. Making holes in your double glazing damages not simply the security and strength of the glazing, but it compromises the insulating properties as well. It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render the double glazing unsound.

A professional cat flap fitter will take the measurements of your current double glazing unit and have a local glazing company make a new purpose made one. As a part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed nicely into. This may take a week or two to produce, however it's really the only way to fit a cat flap into an existing patio or double glazed door. When your new pane of glass shows up, the fitter will take out the old unit, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. Your cat flap can then be installed.
