Getting a catflap fitted in a double glazed back door

In order to get a catflap fitted in a double glazed back door, would they usually fit a bit of UPVC, or would they replace the pane of glazing on the bottom half of the door?

Anyone have any idea how much it would cost please

our blokes just cut a hole in the door when they fitted it and put the cat flap in-we had to buy a new one tho' !

Much easier to just leave the cat outside - try this first ;-)

I would recomend a dog flap, as they are much bigger and easier to get though when your plastard, After a night out on the town.

lol, am still not sure if we would get one into a glazed panel or a UPVC panel?

I think you'd have to get the glass replaced with UPVC

yea, sorry i missunderstood what you were asking (i am really dopey !) - we had a back door with glass in the top half and the plastic woodish lookalike stuff in the bottom - hope you can understand what i mean.:oops:

we had to get glass replaced and the double glasing people fitted upvs with cat flat we had given them, they also gave us the glass back in case we replaced it again

try here to buy one

Recently fitted one into our back door, the top panel was double glazed, the bottom panel is UPVC. You would have to replace the bottom panel with a Correct sized UPVC panel then as the door is double glazed the thickness would require a suitable cat flap that has a door liner, I recommend ones manufactured by cat mate, model 235 has a door liner. There is the model 210 that fits wooden or glass doors including double glazed panels, however it states for existing toughened/double glazing a new glass panel will be required. WIth this in mind, unless you are going to lose a lot of light in the room the door leads into, I would suggest you get a piece of UPVC cut to size to replace the glazed panel then fit the 235 model...they also do a larger one for bigger cats, just remember whatever cat flap you decide upon you will need one with a door liner due to the thickness of the door panel.
