How to Measure for a Sliding Glass Pet Door

Step 1 - Determine Flap Width: It is simple to determine the minimum width needed by your pet to pass through with comfort. Open a sliding door just wide enough to have them walk through with a minimum of one-inch clearance gap on each side. This width including gaps is the minimum size flap width you require.
Step 2 - Determine Flap Height: The top of the flap should be placed at least as high as the top of the tallest pet's shoulder, take a measurement from the floor to that point.

The Benefits of a Sliding Glass Door with a Dog Door Built In

Our pet doors offer myriad benefits for you and your pets, including:
  • Safety from the Heat: While dogs and other animals that are kept inside will be uncomfortable, those who have to stay outside are in serious danger. Given Arizona's extremely high temperatures, your pet must be able to get in your house in the middle of the day, or they will be at risk of heat stroke and a host of other health problems. A pet door lets them get inside as soon as they become too hot for comfort, thereby avoiding any threat to their health, let alone their life.
  • Energy Efficiency: In allowing pets to get back into your air-conditioned house, pet doors have traditionally let warm air in as well. This wastes energy, as your air conditioner has to work harder to keep your home cool; the result is an exorbitant electric bill and a greater negative impact on the environment. But our pet doors use magnetic strips to tightly seal the door as soon as your pet has passed through it. This minimizes the amount of air that leaks into your home, and thus keeps both your bills and your environmental footprint low.
  • Consistent Comfort: Few things are more uncomfortable for a dog than having to wait for long periods of time before using the bathroom. But with one of our pet doors, your dog won't have to wait at all! Whether you're at work, asleep, or otherwise unable to let them out, they'll be free to come and go as they please.
