Double Glazing Installation - If you hire someone who endeavours to drill a hole in your double glazing to install your cat flap, stop them immediately and request that they leave.

It should under no circumstances be attempted and will render your double glazing unsound.

So that the cat flap can be neatly fitted into it, this new double glazing panel will arrive with a pre-cut hole as an integral part of its construction. This could take a couple of weeks to manufacture, but it's really the only way to fit a cat flap into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once your new pane of glass arrives, the fitter will take out the old one, and swap it for the brand new "cat flap ready" panel. The installation of the cat flap will then be concluded.
