The simplest style of cat flap is basically that. A bit of flexible material placed over a hole in a doorway to permit a cat to climb through, but keep out the elements. While this may be acceptable for a garden fence panel or shed door, the majority of Rawtenstall cat owners would doubtless prefer something a tad more weatherproof and secure for a main door to their home.

This basic model is still far from ideal because it allows other animals or cats to enter into your house, but it can be improved on by adding a magnetic strip to keep the flap in place.

Magnetically controlled, RF chip or infra-red styles of cat flap, are a significant step up from the magnetic strip variation. This involves your cat wearing a collar that has either a magnet, RF or IR chip encased within it. Unless an animal is equipped with this special collar, it won't be able to trigger the flap and access or leave your house, thus avoiding some undesirable visitors. The downside here is that any other moggy in the area that's got a similar model of collar can easily access your home when using this type of cat flap. Even these cat flaps can be upgraded to a certain extent with an RF cat flap/collar system containing a user programmed unique identifier.

Choosing a cat flap which can identify your cat's micro-chip, is the next step-up in entry devices for felines. The memory of these battery powered cat flaps can be programmed with one or even multiple microchip details (if you have more than one cat), to provide exclusive access. The flap is unfastened anytime your cat is nearby, only permitting entry or exit to pets that have a microchip.

When you're buying a cat flap, you should make sure it's of a design that can be locked. The majority of cat flaps sold today boast a 4-way locking mechanism. This allows your cat flap to be locked fully, permit exit only, permit only entrance into your house, or have 2-way exit and entrance capability. This provides complete control over the functioning of your cat flap both throughout the day and during the night time. The facility to carry out specific functions according to the time of day, and in line with your cat's and your needs is also a possibility with some of the top-end brands of cat flap.

If you have a timber door on your house in Rawtenstall, putting in a cat flap yourself should not be all that complicated. Although, if it has to be installed into a double glazed window or in a reinforced PVC door, you should on no account even attempt it yourself. These situations require the skills and expertise of a professional cat flap fitter or carpenter, who is sure to have have the knowledge and tools for this kind of installation.


Double Glazing Installation - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to fit your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazed door or window panel, immediately send them packing. A new cat flap can't be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing damages not only the security and strength of the panel, but it compromises the thermal insulation properties as well. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsafe.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing firm, and your chosen Rawtenstall cat flap installer will measure your current panel and order the new one. As part of its construction this new double glazed panel will have a pre-cut hole, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. You might have to wait a week or two for this pane to be manufactured, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is the only way to do it. Once your new panel of glass is delivered, the fitter will take out the old one, and swap it for the new "cat flap ready" pane. The installing of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can be fitted into uPVC doors in most cases. Having said that, certain uPVC doors are lined with steel for extra security, which may cause some issues. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has got a slatted style door panel, it may be better to swap this for a single panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't wish to cut a hole in your doors, for security or aesthetic reasons, you could opt for a cat flap to be installed on an exterior wall. A wall cat flap entrance calls for a little more skill and equipment to install, so it is certainly best left to a specialist. Nearly all cat flap installations in walls involve a simple straight tunnelled style, but right angled access via a pillar can also be achieved. With this sort of installation a plastic or metal, square open ended insert is fitted into a square hole neatly cut out of your selected wall. The cat flap you have chosen can then be attached at both ends to enable your feline friend to come and go as it wishes.

An expert Rawtenstall cat flap installer will gladly remove your old entry unit and swap it for a brand new cat flap without inflicting any damage on the door, wall or window on which it's attached.

Before installing a new flap in a double glazed panel that has been pre-cut, making sure that the existing glass has been made and installed correctly is essential. If it's found this isn't the case, and corners were cut in the original installation, the glass pane must be taken out and replaced to avoid any safety and security problems.
