A cat flap at its most fundamental is merely that. A hole is cut in an external door and a bendable material is hung over the gap to offer some protection from the elements. The majority of Prescot cat owners would doubtless prefer something a bit more weatherproof and secure for an outside door to their home, although this could be okay for an outhouse door or fence panel.

This simple model is still a long way off being ideal as it allows other creatures or cats a means by which to enter your home, but it can be improved on with the addition of a magnetic strip to keep the flap in position.

Magnetically operated, infra-red or RF chip designs of cat flap, are a significant step up from the basic magnetic strip version. With these, either an RF chip, IR or magnet will be sewn into your cat's collar. No animal is going to be able to leave or get into your house unless it is fitted with one of these special collars. The fact that any other moggy in the area who has a similar collar can access your property, is the drawback with this still fairly basic type of cat flap. An upgrade to this device is an RF cat flap and collar system which has a unique identifier that can be programmed by the householder.

The next step-up in feline entry security is to install a cat flap which recognises your pet's own microchip. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you've got more than one cat), to give exclusive access. Exit and entry can only be achieved by microchipped animals, and the flap is unlocked whenever you cat is in the vicinity.

Whatever cat flap you buy, it must be capable of being locked in place. Nowadays, nearly all cat flaps available on the market boast a four way locking system for added security. This means that the cat flap can permit only admittance into your house, permit only exit from your home, be fully locked, or be set for 2-way entry and exit. This offers complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both during the day and throughout the night time. In line with yours and your cat's requirements, there's even the possibility to carry out specific functions in accordance with the time of day, with a few of the more expensive devices.

If you've got a wooden door in your property in Prescot, putting in you own cat flap shouldn't be that hard. However, if it is going to be installed in a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you should not even attempt to tackle it yourself. These situations call for the skills and expertise of a reputable cat flap fitter or handyman, who'll have the equipment and knowledge for this kind of installation project.

INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN PRESCOT

Double Glazing Installations - If you employ someone who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel to install your cat flap, stop them right away and request that they leave. New cat flaps can not be installed into existing double glazing doors or window panels. Cutting or drilling into any kind of double glazing will destroy its strength and security, along with its insulating attributes. Your double glazing will be rendered unsafe, and it should not be attempted under any circumstances.

An experienced cat flap installer will measure up your current double glazed unit and have a local glazing firm knock up a new pane. As an integral part of its structure this new pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be fitted snugly into. This is basically the only way to install a cat flap into an existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or so to produce. Once your new glass panel shows up, the fitter will remove the old one, and exchange it for the brand new "cat flap ready" pane. Your cat flap will then be fitted.

External Wooden Doors - The simplest option for new cat flap installations in Prescot, as was stated earlier in this article, are solid wooden door panels.

A project of this type should not be expensive and will provide you with the satisfaction of knowing that your cat will have the use of an expertly installed flap.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be installed into uPVC doors in most cases. However, some uPVC doors are lined with steel for additional security, which might cause issues. A one piece door panel enables simpler installation, so if you've got a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be more cost effective to swap the panel for a single panel style.

Wall Installation - If you do not really want to cut holes in your doors, either for safety or aesthetic reasons, you can always have a cat flap installed in an external wall. Needing much more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap installation is undoubtedly better left to a specialist, if it is to be completed successfully. You could pick out a straightforward tunnel style, or even a right angled version which enables access via a pillar. A square shaped hole will have to be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. A suitable cat flap is then attached to both sides of the hole.

Replacing an Existing Cat Flap in Prescot - If you already have a cat flat, but it is either damaged or not working correctly, the current hole in your window, wall or door can still be used provided that the new flap is of a similar size. Your cat flap installer will remove the unwanted cat flap, without damaging the surrounding window, door or wall, and fit a new flap for your cat.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing panel that has been previously pre-cut, making sure that the current glass has been fabricated, cut and installed accurately is crucial. If it's found that the previous installation was a bodge up, the panel must be removed and exchanged to avoid any safety and security problems with the new cat flap.
