Opening outwards or inwards, double glazing casement windows have hinges on one side. This means that they're easier to clean, and offer the possibility of a good amount of airflow during the summertime. If security is vital to you, casement windows are also available in a tilt and turn pattern. The addition of a supplementary hinge allows tilt and turn double glazed windows to be opened to a limited degree. This adds more security as they can be locked firmly in position when partially open to allow for cool air to enter the room.

To suit an older or period home in Castlereagh, there are also options available for double glazing sash windows with a more traditional appearance.

Installing Cat Flaps in Double Glazing

Have you considered putting in a cat flap in your double glazing, if you have a cat? This is a great way to let your cat come and go as they wish, without you having to keep opening and closing the door for them.

However, it's important to be aware that installing a cat flap in double glazing is not a do-it-yourself job. This complex procedure requires specialist tools and equipment. It is best to hire a specialist cat flap fitter if you do not have the necessary experience for this sort of work.

There are a variety of cat flaps available on the market, so you can pick one that is the best fit for your needs. Some features you might want to consider include a microchip reader or a lock. For example, you may want a cat flap with a microchip reader to allow only your cat to enter your home.

After choosing a cat flap, you need to contact a professional cat flap fitter. They'll visit your home to assess the situation and measure the space where the cat flap will be installed. They can also provide you with advice on the best type of cat flap for your needs.

The cat flap fitter will then order a new double glazing unit with a hole cut out for the cat flap. This will make certain that the cat flap is installed correctly and that the integrity of the double-glazed unit is not compromised.

The cat flap installer will return to your home in Castlereagh to install the new double glazing unit once it has been delivered.
