INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN BRIDGNORTH
Double Glazing Installation - If you employ somebody who attempts to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your cat flap, stop them at once and request that they leave. It's just not possible to mount a new cat flap into a double glazing window pane or door panel. Any sort of double glazed unit will be ruined by drilling a hole in it, and will diminish its security, strength and insulating properties. The double glazing will be made unsound, and it shouldn't be attempted in any circumstances.
A dependable Bridgnorth cat flap fitter will carefully take the precise measurements of your existing unit and order a custom-made one from a local glazing firm. This new pane will be delivered with a pre-cut hole as part of its structure where the cat flap can be fitted. This is really the only way to install a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, even though it may take a week or so to manufacture. Once your new glass pane is delivered, the fitter will take out the old unit, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" one. The installation of your cat flap will then be carried out.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can generally be fitted into uPVC doors. It pays to know the internal construction, since some doors are steel lined for added security. The models 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 might be advisable to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - It's also feasible to get a cat flap fitted into an external wall of your home in Bridgnorth, if you do not wish to have a hole cut in one of your doors, either for aesthetic or safety reasons. This form of installment is definitely best left to a specialist, because it calls for considerably more equipment and skill to execute. You can go for a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angle model that allows access through a pillar. A square hole will be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a plastic or metal, open ended square tube. A cat flap of your choice is then attached at either end to permit your furry pal to come and go as it wishes.

When the installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in double glazing, it will be important to make certain that this was previously done correctly, before fixing the new cat flap.
