This type of installation calls for the attention of a pro, and there are specialist cat flap fitters and skilled handymen who are ready to accept such work.


Double Glazing Installations - If you bring in a "tradesman" who, while trying to install your new cat flap, attempts to drill a hole in a double glazing window or door panel, send them on their way immediately. A new cat flap can't be fitted into a pre-existing double glazed door panel or window pane.

In reality, it renders your glazing unsafe and it should not ever be attempted.

So that the cat flap can be neatly installed into it, this new double glazed panel will arrive with a hole pre-cut as an integral part of its construction. You may have a 1 or 2 week waiting period for this to be made, but if it's necessary to have a cat flap installed into an existing patio or double glazed door, this is really the only way to accomplish it. Once you have received your new panel of glass, the old one can be removed and the new one fitted. The fitting of the cat flap can then be concluded.

Wall Installation - If, for aesthetic or security reasons, you don't want to have a chunk cut out of a door, you could always decide to install your cat flap in an exterior wall of your property. A cat flap entrance in a wall calls for a bit more equipment and expertise to fit, so it's certainly best left to an expert.
