INSTALLING CAT FLAPS IN CWMBRAN
Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while endeavouring to install your new cat flap, starts to drill a hole in a double glazing door or window panel, send them on their way immediately. New cat flaps cannot be fitted into pre-existing double glazed doors or window panels. Cutting into any type of double glazing will ruin its security and strength, together with its insulation attributes. It should in no circumstances be attempted and will make your double glazing unsound.
A professional cat flap installer will take the measurements of the existing double glazed unit and have a local glazing company make a new one. As an integral part of its structure this new glazed pane will have a hole pre-cut, which your cat flap can be installed perfectly into. This may take a couple of weeks to produce, but it's basically the only way to install a cat flap in a pre-existing double glazed or patio door. Once you have obtained your new modified glass pane, the old unit can be taken out and the new one installed. The installing of the cat flap will then be undertaken.

You or your installer will need to establish what the internal construction of you door is, since for extra security certain uPVC doors are manufactured with a steel lining. The designs of door with a one piece panel are the simplest for cat flap installation, so if yours has a slatted style panel, it might be better to swap this for a single pane.
Wall Installation - It is also a possibility to get a cat flap mounted into an outside wall of your home in Cwmbran, if you do not want to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or security reasons. Needing considerably more expertise and equipment, a wall cat flap install is undoubtedly better left to a professional, if it's to be accomplished successfully. There are a number of options for this kind of installation, including a straight-through tunnel version, or a right angled (through pillar) adaption. A square shaped hole will be cut through your selected wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, open ended square tube.

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