If you are fairly decent at DIY, putting in your own cat flap should not be all that difficult, if you've got a wooden door on your Matlock home. But, if you are looking to install it into a reinforced uPVC door or in a double glazed window panel, you need to ask for outside assistance. This type of installation calls for the attention of an expert, and there are dedicated cat flap fitters and skilled odd job men who are delighted to take on such a task.


Double Glazing Installation - If you happen to employ someone who tries to drill a hole in a double glazed panel to install your new cat flap, stop them without delay and request that they leave. A new cat flap cannot be mounted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane. Making holes in the double glazing destroys not just the strength and security of the panel, but it takes away the insulating properties as well. Actually, it makes the glazing unsound and it shouldn't ever be attempted.

It is necessary to obtain a new double glazed panel made specially for this purpose by a glazing supplier, and your local Matlock cat flap installer will take the measurements of your current pane and order a brand new one. This new glazed panel will be delivered with a hole cut out as a part of its structure where the cat flap can be installed. You may have to wait one or two weeks for this special pane to be manufactured, however if it's necessary to have a cat flap fitted into a pre-existing double glazed or patio door, this is basically the only way to do it. After construction, your old glass panel can be taken out, and the brand new one put in. Your cat flap can then be installed.

uPVC Door Panels - Cat flaps can normally be fitted into uPVC doors. Having said that, some uPVC door panels are lined with steel for further security, which can cause some issues. The easiest kind of cat flap installation is in doors having one single panel, subsequently if you've got a uPVC door with vertical slatted panels, it might be cheaper and easier in the long run to exchange the slatted pane for a one piece panel.

Wall Installation - If you don't want to cut a hole in your doors, for aesthetic or safety reasons, you could get a cat flap installed on an exterior wall. This sort of installment is undoubtedly better left to a specialist, because it requires much more skill and equipment to execute. You could opt for a straight-through tunnel design, or maybe a right angle model that permits entry via a pillar. A neat square hole will need to be made through your chosen wall, into which is inserted a metal or plastic, square open ended tube. An appropriate cat flap can then be attached to both ends of the hole.

When the cat flap installation involves insertion into a pre-cut hole in a double glazed pane, it will be important to confirm that this was previously done in the right way, before fixing the new flap.
