Glass Installation Information
Our installers are qualified glaziers who specialise in fitting pet doors into glass.
You don’t always need to replace your entire glass panel to install a pet door. Some types of glass can be cut into onsite, which is a much more cost and time effective option.
Toughened/tempered/safety glass/double glazed cannot be cut. It is designed to crumble into small chunks instead of splintering into shards. When we have your panel remade, the hole is laser cut for the pet door and then the glass is toughened and installed. The cost and timeline varies depending on the size, type and thickness of your glass. We can give you a ball park figure over the phone, and an exact quote after an obligation free measure.
You can check your glass type by looking in the corners of your glass for a small white stamp, usually about the size of a lOc piece. If there is a stamp, regardless of the wording, then you have toughened/tempered/safety glass, which cannot be cut.
