The simplest style of cat flap is essentially that. A bit of flexible material hung over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. Naturally, this is really basic, and will not be good enough for most Cheddleton cat owners, who would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for an external door to their property, although it could be okay for a shed door or garden fence panel.

This standard model can be improved upon with magnetic strips to keep the flap in place, however it's still far from perfect because it enables other creatures or cats a way to enter your property.

A step up from the magnetic strip model are RF chip or infra-red, magnetically controlled cat flaps. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be fitted into your cat's collar. Unless an animal is fitted with this special collar, it will not be able to open the flap and access or leave your house, hence preventing some unwanted visitors. The fact that any other moggy in the Cheddleton area who has a similar collar may be able to gain access to your property, is the downside with this kind of cat flap. An enhancement to this equipment is a RF cat flap and collar system which contains a unique identifier that can be programmed by the cat's owner.

A model of cat flap that's capable of identifying your pet's micro-chip, is the next step-up in feline entrance security. The details of your cat's microchip are programmed into the cat flap's memory (multiple entries are possible if you have more than one cat). Exit and entry can only be accomplished by microchipped pets, and the flap will be unfastened when you cat is close by.

The ability to lock it in position is important regardless of what cat flap you are buying. The majority of cat flaps sold today feature a 4-way locking system. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, permit only entrance into your premises, enable exit from your property only, or have two-way exit and entry capability. This will give you a range of solutions on how your cat flap operates at all times of the day and night. In keeping with your cat's and your requirements, there's even the possibility to perform different functions in accordance with the time of day, with some of the top-end models.

If you have a wooden door in your property in Cheddleton, installing you own cat flap shouldn't be all that complicated. But, if you're hoping to install it in a double glazed window or in a reinforced uPVC door, you need to seek outside assistance. These types of fixtures call for a professional installation from a reputable cat flap installer or carpenter with the appropriate skills and equipment.


Double Glazing Installation - If your new cat flap has to be mounted on a double glazed panel, and your appointed "tradesman" endeavours to drill a hole in it, stop them straight away and give them their marching orders. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Cutting into any sort of double glazing will damage its strength and security, together with its thermal insulation attributes. The double glazing will be made unsafe, and it should never be done under any circumstances.

It will be necessary to get a new double glazing pane made especially for this purpose by a glazing company, and your local Cheddleton cat flap installer will measure your current unit and put in an order for a brand new one. This new panel will have a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its structure where the cat flap will be installed. This could take a couple of weeks to produce, but it is basically the only way to fit a cat flap in a pre-existing patio or double glazed door. After construction, the old glass can be taken out, and the new one put in. The fitting of your cat flap can then be undertaken.

Exterior Wooden Doors - The most straightforward option for new cat flap installations in Cheddleton, as was mentioned previously, are timber doors. It's often safer to call on a competent cat flap fitter or carpenter, if you're in any way uncertain about cutting a hole in your front or back door. A project like this should not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your kitty will be climbing through a professionally installed flap.

Cat Flap Installation Cheddleton Staffordshire

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can in general be installed into uPVC doors. You'll need to determine what the internal construction of you door actually is, because for added security some uPVC doors are made with a steel lining. The easiest kind of installation is in doors having one single panel, therefore if you have a uPVC door with slatted vertical panels, it may be cheaper and easier in the long run to replace the slats with a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - It's also a possibility to get a cat flap mounted into an external wall of your property in Cheddleton, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons. A cat flap entrance in a wall requires considerably more skill and equipment to install, therefore it is certainly better left to an expert. You can decide on a straight through tunnel style, or even a right angled model which allows access through a pillar. This installation involves a square shaped hole being made through your wall, into which a metal or plastic, open ended square tube is inserted. A cat flap is then installed on each side of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Cheddleton - If you've already got a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not functioning properly, the existing hole in your wall, door or window can be used for a replacement as long as the new flap is of a comparable size. A trustworthy cat flap installer in Cheddleton will efficiently remove your old cat flap, and mount a new one as a replacement without damaging the wall, window or door.

If the replacement cat flap is to be mounted into a pre-cut hole in a double glazing pane, you must ensure that the glass has been made and installed accurately. If it's found that corners were cut with the previous installation, the glass will have to be removed and substituted to avoid any security and safety issues with the new flap.
