A one piece door panel allows for easier installation, so if you have a slatted type uPVC door panel, it might be more economical to swap the panel for a single pane model.

Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut holes in your doors, whether for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed in an exterior wall. This kind of installment is undoubtedly better left to a professional, as it calls for much more equipment and skill to execute. You could choose a straightforward tunnel style, or maybe a right angle model which permits entry via a pillar.

Before fitting the new cat flap in a double glazing pane that has been pre-cut, checking that the existing glass has been cut and installed in the right way is crucial.
