What Flap Can Be Installed into a Sliding Glass Door?

You might be wondering how you can install a cat flap into your sliding glass door. It is important to note that the profile of the cat flap installed into sliding patio doors has to be very slim to enable the door to slide over. Pet Flaps UK offers the best cat flaps for double glazed doors. These special cat flaps are designed specifically for a sliding patio door.


Cat Flaps for Sliding Patio Doors

When it comes to sliding doors, there are limitations. The distance between two doors means that only flat or very slim pet flaps can be used—unless you are prepared to sacrifice part of the door to the pet flap or put up with a door that does not open fully.

Microchip cat flaps are too wide for installation into these doors and inhibit the ability to fully open the sliding door when you choose to have it installed in the fixed panel. Some people do choose this option; however, it is not for everyone. Want to know what kind of cat flap is right for you? Give us a call today to find out more and to schedule your installation.


The Best Kind of Cat Flap for Patio Doors

The brand that is best suited to the sliding door is Pet-Tek, as these are the slimmest pet flaps on the market and allow the sliding door to operate without compromise. However, due to their slim design, they are a push style of pet flap.

Another great thing about Pet-Tek is that it is the only clear or transparent brand of pet flap on the market that we will install. Pet-Tek flaps are made from the virtually indestructible material polycarbonate. This is the quality you can expect from Pet Flaps UK.
