Cat or dog flaps can be installed in a number of different glass doors including single glazed, double glazed, French doors, sliding doors, or even windows.

New glass must be manufactured with the hole already in so the unit can remain sealed without misting.

There are several different types of cat flap available on the market and can be purchased for a relatively cheap price. Flaps with microchips can be installed so they are only open for your pet wearing a chip. This can keep unwanted guests from entering the cat or dog flap.

Dog flaps will usually be much larger than a cat flap but should still cost around the same amount for installation, different sizes can be selected based on the breed or size of your pet.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to install a cat flap in a glass door without the help of a professional double glazing installer, the holes in the glass must be cut and sealed properly, so this is not a DIY job.
