  • R - 93 1/4" - 96 1/4" (additional cost)

If your measured track height does not fall within one of the ranges above, you have a 'custom height'. Choose the range that your custom height falls in and order including specifying the exact height of your slider track inside very top to very bottom. The ranges are:

  • < 77 3/4"
  • 80 1/4" - 93 1/4"
  • >96 1/4"

In each case you will have 3" of height adjustment with the height you specify approximately in the middle of that range. 

Please note - Your insulated glass unit must be special ordered which takes about 4 weeks. Since these are custom heights it's a final sale; no returns.

Caution If your measured track height is near the bottom of the adjustment range then you should review A Note of Caution

Note Don't think that the 12" width isn't enough unless you actually measure.  12" is Huge!

Frosted Glass Option - If you prefer, your patio pet door panel may be special ordered with frosted (bathroom) glass. This option enables you to partially open your drapes for access to the pet door without losing privacy. Frosted glass is a final sale, no return option and requires an extra 3 to 4 weeks to ship because the glass gets custom ordered..

This Thermo-Panel IIIe™ Patio Pet Door Features

No other manufacturer can offer you a pet door that has won the Fancy Publications 'Editors' Choice' Award for Innovation and Creativity!

Easy Installation

The Only panel pet door that doesn't require a drill or other tools for installation! Exclusive user adjustable step-over to match pet door height to pet height after purchase. Built-in Anti Whoops in case your measurements are slightly off.

Safe and Secure

The Thermo-Panel IIIe Includes a provision to lock the sliding door. Beefy metal framing, sturdy locking pet flap cover. A sturdy locking cover comes with every Endura Flap pet door. The dimensionality of this cover--it's not just flat--actually increases the strength to the equivalent of a 1/16" steel plate.

Flexible Design 

The flexible design of the Endura Flap™ is safer than other rigid pet door designs, as it eliminates the danger of pinching or snagging if something scares him while he's walking through the door and pulls back quickly.

Superior Insulation

You've probably heard about other pet doors that do little to protect against hot or cold weather. The Endura Flap™ combines dual-pane glass that is slightly thicker than normal, which offers superior insulation for greater energy efficiency.

Built to Last

Anyone who has used a pet door for any length of time has seen that the cost of replacing the flaps can exceed the original cost of the door.

Most pet door flaps today use a sheet of vinyl fastened rigidly across the top of the frame with screws. As the pet goes through the flap, it begins to wear. Over time, the flap will spilt, and eventually break. This is why the Endura Flap™ uses pivots, to avoid wear and breakage. As a guarantee, it is backed by a superior warranty: 15 years!

Environmentally Friendly

Most pet doors are made with PVC, or vinyl, which is very harmful to the environment. The Endura Flap™ is made using a polyolefin-based polymer (similar to material used in food storage containers), which is a non-toxic, recyclable, and safe for our environment.

There has been lots of discussion as to why the Endura Flap is such a high performing pet door, but for engineers or those looking for some more technical information here is a 74-page dog door energy efficiency study showing what makes it so special.

Fits any Sliding Glass Door (minimum track width 1")

  • Standard ranges include 74 3/4" - 77 3/ 4" and 771/4" - 80 1/4"
  • Standard 'Oversize' is 93 1/4" - 961/4"
  • Custom Height <77 3/4, 80 1/4" - 93" and >96" are available

Important Information about Custom Heights

Custom height patio panels are important in two situations. First, while most sliding glass door track heights accommodate the three standard door sizes we offer, some do not.  In those cases, we can build a custom Quick Panel III™ to fit your specific dimension.  The second situation is where you have a sideways sliding window.  This is actually a miniature sliding glass door, and you can install a custom height undersize Quick Panel III™ to fit in those cases provided the window track width is at least 1". 

Remember that the Quick Panel III™ is built with a 3" spring-loaded height adjustment.  When you order in one of the custom height ranges, you will be prompted for your track height. The patio panel will be built to a height that is approximately in the middle of this 3" range. For example, if you specify 40", your panel will be built to adjust from about 38" to 41".

There are limits to the heights that we can manufacture which result from the height of the flap assembly, which is fixed, and limits to the packaging that can be shipped safely. Here are the height ranges that we can accommodate:

Custom Height Minimum & Maximum Heights
Model Minimum Maximum
Small #6 35" 100"
Medium #8 42" 107"
Large #10 48" 117"
Extra Large #12 46" 123"

 

Frosted Glass Option

If you prefer, your patio pet door panel may be special ordered with frosted (bathroom) glass. This option enables you to partially open your drapes for access to the pet door without losing privacy. Frosted glass is a final sale, no return option, and requires an extra 3 to 4 weeks to ship because the glass is custom ordered.

Special Bonus Offer!  Add an Amazing Bug Warden at about 20% off Regular Retail

The Bug Warden is a revolutionary new product that allows you to close your screen door completely while allowing access to your pet door. If you're opening the sliding glass door for ventilation during the warm months, this is for you. As a once-only offer, you can purchase the Bug Warden for 20% off with the purchase of any size Thermo Panel IIIe.

There are quite a few issues that might be important for you to think about in purchasing any panel pet door. Begin with key points to get a quick overview of the most important ones. Then study the comparison chart and read the information on the patio panel FAQ page which cover the fine points of patio pet doors.

Note Endura Flaps™ are not recommended for use by kittens or tiny dogs. Cats have been successful using all four sizes.

1 step-over is the height of the flap above the base of the pet door.We suggest that 'flap height' + 'step-over' should about equal pet shoulder height. Unlike any other panel pet door on the market, the Thermo Panel IIIe can be adjusted by the user to the step-over dimensions shown in 2" increments. Here's more info on the user-adjustable step-over.

changed our lives!!!
How do you rate this product?

Hi there,
Just wanted to say this door changed our lives. It is such peace of mind to be able to work and go out and know that my dogs can go in and out at their leisure. I used to tensely race home to let my dogs out hating the thought that they were stuck inside holding their bladders. Now \i can actually stop to run an errand if I have to. I have a border collie who understood the concept of push so training her to use it was a cinch and my other dog followed suit instantly. we love it and i highly recommend this to anyone who is considering.

my dog loves it!
How do you rate this product?

I bought this door last Spring. It took my dog (now a 9 mo old Cocker puppy) about a week or two to get the hang of it. Now if she needs to out in the middle of the night she can and I don't have to get up. It's helped a lot with house training.

Sub zero temps started while I was out of town. Upon returning my kitchen was cold. Feeling the bottom of the door I could feel cold air coming through the bottom corners. The bottom magnet doesn't stretch all the way across the bottom to fill in the corner gaps. I put the cover over it which helped keep the cold out. Ice has built up along the inside bottom half of the door~not the top where the glass is (I bought the double pane window for this reason). So until it warms up my dog won't be using it in the middle of the night. I'll be looking for something to cover the corners and block the cold for day use.

But overall I am happy with it. It was very easy to put up. I didn't have to adjust anything for my dog. I think I would be happier if it was insulated inside on the bottom half and if there were NO drafts. I did add additional (AC) insulation around the top and side edge that fits into the door jam to further block the cold a couple months ago.

Happy dog

I bought this door a few months ago after spending a lot of time researching on the internet. I was hesitant because it seems like a lot of money. But, I wanted something sturdy and insulated. I have to say that so far I am very pleased. I had someone install it for me, but it seemed pretty simple. It looks like part of my slider now- very attractive. It took my dog a little while to figure it out. We tried to work with treats and actually just shoved her through the door a few times. Now, she loves the freedom to go in and out whenever she wants. We both are happy with this purchase.

Awesome door!!
How do you rate this product?

This is the best pet door! We have not hit our coldest temperatures yet this year to know if the door keeps the cold out well but the door is above what we expected. My husband had to make a few revisions to get the door in place but not because of the pet door, it was due to our slider. Once in place the dogs started using it immediately. We have a 120# Bernese Mountain Dog and he fits through it just fine. Door is very sturdy and the magnet flap is very secure and shuts tightly after the dogs have gone through. We hesitated about getting a dog door for years, but our two older dogs should not be braving the elements anymore than they have to so we bought this door based on the reviews. The door is above and beyond what we expected- I'm so glad we bought it!!

Worth The Money
How do you rate this product?

The construction is solid, this isn't a cheapo door, fittings are cut well and everything works as advertised. The supplied moldings cut down on heat loss at the seams and the doggie door is just the right size. I appreciated getting the right model, size, and color during shipping, somebody was paying attention. And the door was packed well and shipped with no damage. Don't buy the cheapo versions a the Pet Mart's, this is a quality door.

Ginger now loves the door.
How do you rate this product?

The Endura Flap door is an excellent product of very high quality. The installation was quick and easy. My dog Ginger did not want to use it at first, but she had no issues once I removed the three magnets for training purposes. I left the magnets out for about a month, then added them back one at a time at a one week interval. (They can be removed and reinstalled easily.) Ginger now has no issues using the door, and we are very pleased with our purchase.

This door is well make and works good on my slider

Door is great
How do you rate this product?

The door is very well made and sturdy. I live in a very hot climate in the summer and the seal on the flap is good. It was pretty easy to install, and there is no movement when the big dog goes through it. There was a little package of liver dog treats included in my box. I fed several to my big dog and she got terrible diarrhea I think from those, she is fine but it was pretty bad, so avoid the enclosed treats if you get them.

Nice feature

A very nice addition that lets us close the screen door tightly so no bugs get in but still allows our dog to use his door. If you use your screen door, I highly recommend this addition.

Easy to set up and works like a charms. Love the fact that we can take it down it the winter when we close up the place and move to warmer climate. It takes 5 minutes to undo it and then we store it away til the next season. Couldn't be happier and our dog loves the ability to go in and out on his own. Well worth the money.

glad I bought it but....
How do you rate this product?

this flap turned out to be the one that I needed but I think my door was older than the replacement part (the flap) My son came and put it in for us, but the installation was not like the video. Eventually, he got the flap to work, and it is fine now, but it was not as easy as it looked. I think I waited too many years (5) to buy a replcement.

why did I wait so long??
How do you rate this product?

I wasn't sure I would be able to do this by myself. When I first put it in, it was crooked and I thought, great, now what? They I read the awesome instruction sheet that came with it. It trouble shot everything! I was able to install it and straighten it by myself. The instructions walk you through everything.
The only thing I have not figured out is the weather stripping. I am not sure where and how to place it--even with the pictures and the instructions. The result of this is that there can be a breeze along the door when it is windy outside. I think I will finally figure this out when I get motivated enough.
My dogs love it. It is a bit loud when it opens and closes but it does so firmly so there is no flapping. No critters from the outside have come in (I live in the mountains with coons, cats, bears, foxes and coyotes). No one has come in to visit.
I am sorry I waited so long to do this.

Quality Product
How do you rate this product?

I have made a couple of patio door insert dog doors myself by using door panels and installing off the shelf dog doors into them. Although I consider myself a fairly good craftsman, these doors are a whole other level above anything I could have made myself. The insert seals well and the door seals well. It was very little effort to train my 2 dogs to use it.

Excellent product!

We love this doggie door! It is very sturdy and works so well! Our two big dogs love the freedom to go in and out as they please. And I enjoy not having to get out of bed to let them in and out in the early morning hours. This was an expensive door, but well worth the money. Very easy to install!

Great Door!

Door was very easy to install and very sturdy. Works for both our mini Aussie and toy Aussie. Secure fit and no rain ever gets in even with the downpours and blowing winds we get here in Florida. Highly recommend.

Nice product, but lacked stability
How do you rate this product?

We are happy with our pet door. I had to cut strips of wood for spacers and drill extra holes for screws to make the door fit snugly and feel stable. I also added thin strips of weather stripping to seal gaps on the closing surfaces. Also, the sliding door opening that is left is pretty narrow. You almost have to turn sideways to go out. Didn't expect to have so much customization work, but it is a very nice, high quality product.

Outstanding door

This pet door is very sturdy. We replaced a competitor model which also had two doors, but it had a plastic surround which shattered during one of our cold snaps last winter. This door is much more structurally sound.

I installed this door eight days ago. Installation was straightforward, especially after watching the video. The white color matches our patio door exactly. I removed the two side magnets from the small door to make it easier for our dog to open the door during training. Unfortunately, our 12-pound Maltese wants nothing to do with this door. I put an aluminum ramp on the outside since there was a 6-inch drop from the step-over of the dog door to the deck outside. I also added a 1-inch rubber ramp on the inside. Our dog is still afraid of it all. We will hire a dog behavioral consultant if our dog doesn't make progress over the next few weeks. In terms of the door itself, it was all it claimed to be.

Tough install but great product

Installation was a bit tough but it works great! Wished it had better included materials for weather stripping the backside of sliding door. Durable, keeps wind/heat out well.

BEST pet door around
How do you rate this product?

This pet door is spectacular. We love it because the flap is heavy and secure enough to withstand WINDY days and also it keeps the heat/ cold out. We previously had a cheaper version and it leaked air horribly we had to use the security plate all the time . We have never used the security door yet. Plus Our dogs (a black lab mix and a Rottie) love their freedom to come and go as they please especially to chase a squirrel. This was WELL worth the investment.

10 Year User Review!
How do you rate this product?

Over the last 10 years I have purchased three Endura flap pet
Doors - two patio door units, and one in-wall unit, in three different sizes. These doors are quite expensive, but they are worth EVERY penny. Other petdoors I have purchased or looked at don't even compare in quality. We live with 0 degree winters and 100 degree summers. We have three dogs, so the flap access is very busy. Endura flaps don't leak air, open and close perfectly, and are easy to keep clean, and last year after year. As if this outstanding product is not impressive enough, the customer service I have experienced with these people is exemplary. I hope this review does not come off as mere hype. Trust me, EVERY word is true.

Does dog come with the doggie door
How do you rate this product?

Hello, I really like your doggie door. But I don't have a dog. I was just curious if the dog in the picture came with the doggie door. I feel it would be strange if I bought it without a dog. I'll take the gold one.

Love the door
How do you rate this product?

We are very pleased with our pet door. It has a very good seal which keeps out the cold. There is some icing that occurs on the inside portion of the door when the temperature drops to - 20 degrees Celsius (-4 degrees Fahrenheit). Our winters can get down to - 40 degrees Celsius (- 40 degrees Fahrenheit). I usually take the door off when it gets that cold. I would highly recommend this pet door.

Best buy of the year

Love this door. Does let in some cold but still worth having it. Dogs love going in and out on their own. I love the fact that there is no permanent alterations to my door

The best
How do you rate this product?

The best money I have spent on a pet door. Went thru several of the "cheaper" brands but none sealed like the Endura Flap. Multiple dogs of various sizes from small to huge as well as cats can use the door with no problems, yet the door seals even in very heavy winds. Stop searching, this is the best. Easy to install and works like a champ.

EXCELLENT QUALITY PET DOOR
How do you rate this product?

We've had our door since December 2013. I am really glad I didn't pick a cheaper door from Home Depot or anywhere else. This door is very well made and sturdy, the same quality glass as in our sliding glass door. We have a medium size shepherd-mix, and a now 1-yr-old lab "puppy". They go in and out as they please - thousands of times so far. The flap has held up well (except for muddy nose prints). It's also great that we can lock the dogs outside by sliding a panel down on the inside of the flap.

We purchased this pet door in an X-large. We have two Springers 65+ pounds. This door works great. It was so easy to install, just snapped right in. The dogs love it. I'm glad I didn't go any smaller. We live in Florida and it closes very snugly. You can't feel the heat or air coming through. There is also plenty of room for us to go in and out of the remaining door space. We use this door a lot so that was a consideration. I would highly recommend this product. Our dogs have so much freedom to come in and out to the lanai. We also purchased the pet door for screen enclosures so they can go from the lanai to the back yard. It is also a great product with no problems.

Solid Product
How do you rate this product?

Had a lousy pet door with a flimsy plastic flap previously. That door didn't seal at all and ran my summer power bill through the roof. Picked up this door just before Thanksgiving 2013. Materials and quality of the door seem very good. Installation was as easy as advertised. We have an elderly cat and young black lab that both use the door. Using all of the flap-sealing installed magnets made the door too difficult for the cat to open so we removed the bottom magnets to make it a little easier for the cat to open. Only drawback to this arrangement is that it reduces the seal at the bottom of the flap. I have tried to resolve this by duct taping the bottom seal piece in place which doesn't work too badly. We have had a pretty cold December and January but our heating bill has been similar to previous years. Overall, I am pretty happy with this product.

Awesome panel and door

We live in a condo with a very large terrace outside. We had artificial turf installed and the dogs love being out there. I got so tired of opening and closing the sliding door for them (2 mini Doxies) that we decided to give this a try. What a great idea and well executed. We had a little bit of an issue installing because our opening height was close to the low end measurement. I called customer service who made some suggestions. However, with a little coaxing, we got the door aligned and installed without any alterations. This is a well made product. You get what you pay for and this was worth the price.

Fantastic door
How do you rate this product?

This door is so well made and was so easy to install. I liked that there was no screwing into the door framework required. The weather stripping tightened up the whole installation. I love the fact that it also looks like it belongs with the sliding glass doors. It has been a cold New England winter and it has kept me from having to open and close outside doors. It took a little training because the flap returns to the magnetic hold quickly. I started by holding the flap open and letting it roll softly over her back, on her return I always had lots of praise and well yes some really good treat. I also tried to keep her using only this door as I needed her to while I was at work. This door is a great purchase!

We bought this door when we got a new puppy--certainly wish we had done this with our previous 5 dogs! This made house-training a snap. This dog is a GoldenDoodle, supposed to get as tall as a Golden Retriever. He learned to use it in about 10 seconds, and we had virtually no more accidents. Our 11 year old Golden Retriever ( a 90 pound dog) fit through it easily and also learned to use it quickly. It has a noticeable click when is closes, but not obnoxious to us. We have had frigid temperatures here and the room is a bit cooler than the rest of the house, but no wind has blown through. We are very happy with the flap.

We installed this door in November and have had a VERY cold winter with many days below zero. The thermo panel has kept the house pretty warm despite the cold. The only concern I have had is the bottom adjustable lip under the door itself tends to stick in the down position which does let in some cold air if I don't notice.

Great Pet Door- easy install
How do you rate this product?

This is a high quality, very attractive pet door. The instructions were easy to follow and made installation a breeze. I did have to remove the sliding door latch point on he wall, but this contingency, and what to do about it, is addressed in the instructions. I also had a very slight gap at the top of the door after installation, again, this possibility and how to fix it were also in the instructions. So, as far as I could tell, they tried to determine, and include, any possible installation problem you could run into. They also include a help-line number which, because the instructions were so good, I didn't need but was nice of them to include.

EXCELLENT investment! We love it.

We have two BIG Labs, one is a Lab/Pyranees mix and he's 140 lbs and very tall so we needed an XL opening. This site is the only place we could find an adequately sized doggie door. Since we're in upstate NY, we chose to spend more and get the 'top of the line' Thermo Panel model in Bronze to match our dark wood sliders. This insert is AWESOME!! It's well made, the flap is heavy duty and so far (about 3 weeks),we've had no issues. The flap has a heavy duty, strong magnetic strip at the bottom that always meets the flap when it swings down and closes tightly. Yes, it 'clanks' a little when it swings shut but who cares?! We've been having 0 degree temps here and we're impressed with the insulation of this unit. I have NO worries about summer-time and our AC leaking out. We did not use the provided black sweeper strip, but instead stuffed a thick foam insulator strip down the length of the interior glass door where it meets the statonary door. We used the provided skinny gray weather stripping for each side of dog door insert so when it was installed, lined up, and door closed tight to it, its a really good seal on both sides. The only place that needs a bit of 'weather tight' improvement is at the flap HINGE, I can feel cold air streaming in right there. I am not sure anything can be done about it without affecting the hinge from working smoothly? Otherwise; easy install into an old wooden set of sliders, dogs got used to it quickly, and NO MORE constant up/down for US!! The XL door is just perfect for our big guy to comfortably get through! We use the hard plastic closure insert at night to block opening and that works well too. Just slide it in! Oh, and we did not 'permanently' install this, it's just tightly wedged in and the open sliding door is secured at the top with the clip provided and a small tension rod (that we already had) at the bottom. That way, we can remove it easily with no damage if we ever need too. DON'T HESITATE! It works! :-)

I love this door and it works well, but I had to modify it for my sliding door. Once installed and because of the frame of this particular door, we had to add more insulation. Overall, however the door is great, the dogs love it and it is well enough insulated in the cold weather.

Pays for itself in one winter.

What a Pet Door. The Thermo Pane glass and the special entrance flap make for a money saving pet door. With the addition of the draft blocker, the system will easily pay for itself in energy savings in the first winter. We get some very cold weather where we live and with the new door, it is like there is no pet door, just a nice thermo pane patio door. I strongly recommend this door to everyone. There is nothing else on the market like it.

Great door
How do you rate this product?

This door keeps out the cold while giving our dog the freedom to go in and out on her own. It took some adjusting to our sliding glass door to get a good seal between the pet door and slider. Our cat won't use it either. He doesn't like to push his face against the door. It's not a big deal since he goes out a lot less than the dog. Also, the door is loud. It makes a slamming sound. I still love it though and sleep much better at night since I don't have to get up and down to let the dog out anymore and don't have to hurry home from work to let the dog out or in depending on the weather.

This is my first pet door. It was super easy to install, no tools required. I am not the world's handiest person. Total time took about 30 minutes (of note, I did not have to adjust the height of the door for my very small 10lb dog), including weather stripping. Flap seals nicely with magnets...very minimal draft despite cold weather. My dog was cruising in and out the door without any problem in about 2 minutes. My cats are having a harder time learning to push flap open, but we haven't spent much time in formal training. I think they will get the hang of it. I'm very happy with this product! I would purchase it again & have already recommended it to a family member for her dogs. Not the cheapest, but worth the $$$!

Great door.

Great door. I have 4 dogs ranging from 8 lbs. to 40 lbs.
They all are able to go in and out. It took awhile for the chihuahua to figure it out, but he eventually realized he needed to push it with his nose. This model is perfect for all year. Really does keep the cold out. Great product and simple to install.

Disappointed
How do you rate this product?

We just got the door today and installed it. Here is the good and bad.
Good:
- sturdy design
- superior flap
Bad:
- very pricey compared to competitors
- bottom of panel doesn't fit snug against the bottom of sliding door frame, the top of panel (that contains spring) can be move back and forth within the frame as there isn't a piece that holds it tight. So if a person or the dog were to bump it going in or our the top of the panel slams against the front or rear of the frame.
-----
We had some of these problems with the petsafe door we had and expected them not to be there with this door because of the cost. The only real benefit is the flap itself is better. I wouldn't recommend this product for the price, save some money and buy a petsafe dog door instead (just make sure you get the correct size).

ed note - We regret our customer didn't notice the semi-permanent installation option in the "Other Installation Options" section of our instructions. That method eliminates any possibility of the frame moving in the track. He also seems to have missed the dual-pane, Lo E glass compared with the 1/8" single-pane glass offered in the Petsafe product.

Overall we love this doggy door. It does let in some draft but only noticeable when it got around to below freezing. The door arrived promptly and in good shape with great directions.

I found this review and I have the same issue. I live in Missouri and if my dog/cat doesn't come through the door exactly right - right speed and altitude - it will not seal. It will either kink or not close all the way at the bottom. Not a good thing when end up trying to heat the great outdoors all the time.





okay but ... review by lab door
How do you rate this product?
The door works great ... my black lab loves it & install was easy.
I do live in Niagara Falls, Canada & with temperatures almost around freezing I am getting lots of condensation on the inside of the door plus the bottom portion (that retracts when the flap opens) is getting stuck & not popping back up so I am having to manually release it so that it meets back up with the closing flap. If I don't then when the flap comes to rest there is a 3/4" gap at the bottom letting lots of cold air in.

A great convenience, expensive but worth it

I bought the large door for my 60lb black Lab mix, and it is plenty large. She is a very cautious dog but used it without coaxing after five days. It was too heavy for me to install and I hired a handyman. The gaps between the door and my patio door were substantial, and we ended up buying more insulation strips for both doors. I just hope the strip will eventually come off the patio door if the dog door has to be removed.

Draft help

With the sliding door not able to close all the way due to the panel, we've noticed a draft in the gap of the door. Any ideas on how to insulate the gap. We use the door so will need to be something that stays in place when the door opens and closes. Lmk if u need a pic to have a better idea of the area I'm talking about. Thanks

ed note - The Thermo Panel IIIe and nearly all other patio pet doors include a 'draft stopper' designed to prevent this leak. Please call customer service for help with this.

How do you rate this product?

the endura flap thermo panel is a good buy for cold weather climates however i did need to fill the gap with some insulation around the panel and the door frame for extra protection. I also needed to move the "floor lock" on the pella door which was not expected. It probably would fit fine on a less expensive door but you'll need to do some adjustments if you have a Pella or other more expensive brand. overall it serves the purpose.

great product!

We ordered a medium flap on the shortest door fitting and I was amazed at how sturdy it is. I love the spacers so you can easily adjust the height of the flap to your dog. We have a short patio door and I was very happy it fit since we could not find anything else that came close to the height of our slider. The door looks great and installs super easy. The vinyl flap that you attach nicely blocks any breeze coming in where the doors meet up. I would highly recommend this door, it is a great product!

Great Door-Total Quality

This is exactly what we wanted. It's a great door, solid not flimsy and we wanted a door that could keep well insulated in cold and hot weather, which this is. Also an important thing for us, is that we have a french door slider which is white along with out windows and shutters, which are also a gloss white. This door goes with it perfectly as if we had it custom made. The staff both online and on the phone have been terrific. Don't hesitate--get it!

great door easy to use install and good insulation

Very pleased; a couple of suggested customizations
How do you rate this product?

I bought the product to replace a home-made plexiglass version I made for my sliding door. The Thermo Panel IIIe unit installed very easily, though I did add some weather stripping to adapt the unit to my particular door frame. Door frames come in so many variations that no one product can fit them all straight out of the box. Expect to do a little bit of tinkering.

This is a high quality, well made unit that is very well thought out and adapts easily to different door heights. Try to make something like this yourself and you'll see how well the different problems have been addressed.

The unit is for three cats (15 - 30 lb Maine Coon mix rescue cats). My home-made door hinged at the side and my cats don't like bumping the top-hinged door with their noses to open it. Kelsey Youmans in Customer Service at Petdoors .com sent me instructions how to reduce the magnetic force holding the door shut and that seems to have solved the problem without affecting the door's weather sealing properties (I live in hot, humid Florida). I trimmed the side magnets to about two inches each and placed them at the top of each side. Works very well. Thanks Kelsey.

What counts is that my wife is very happy with the door - If mama happy everbody happy.

Great door for Florida
How do you rate this product?

This is a great pet door. It is solid, substantial, and does not wobble and rock when my 'foundlings' run in and out. The lower rise makes it much easier for Fi who has had surgery on both knees, for Henry who got a bit taller than the vet guesstimated he'd grow, and Skeeter, a 25-pound tomcat that the vet also terribly underestimated.
This door was so easy to install (really good instructions), but better still, our infrared thermometer indicates that the Thermo Panel IIIe door is better than 10 degrees cooler than the previous "Best" dog door I purchased from a pet supply chain store. The Thermo Panel IIIe is at the same temperature as my thermal pane patio door. (Now, I really wonder what that "Best" $250 door cost me in electricity the last few years. I wish I'd bought the Thermo Panel IIIe door much sooner.)

Built to last
How do you rate this product?

It must be over 20 years ago that I purchased this door. I've only had to replace the flap once about 10 years ago (which was very easy to change) and it's still going strong in a house with multiple dogs!

I live in Northern Illinois where it gets pretty cold and windy in the winter and the flap seems to keep out most of the draft.

Thank you - I believe this to be the BEST pet door available!


ed. note - Judging by the time frame, this would have to be a Thermo Panel II and not the current IIIe which is very considerably improved.

We love this door -- worth every penny

Our chihuahua and chi-pin love this door. They quickly learned to use it. We can hear the flap but we do not consider it excessively noisy; we like knowing when our dogs go in and out.

This is also a great looking door; we especially like the window and how solidly it is made. We thought it was relatively easy to install. All of our friends think this is the best dog door they have ever seen and we have given them all your website. Thanks for making such a great product. It will go with us if and when we move.

Great, solid, weatherproof door. The only thing that does not work well is the Bug Flap. Hard to fit at the top and bottom due to the sliding door tracks.

Not a very good seal at all.

Installation took 3 people and sometimes 4 to get in there. Instructions were not as good as I had hoped for.

Flap is VERY noisy
How do you rate this product?

Although this is a high quality pet door, the actual flap falls short is design. The flap is extremely loud as it is opened and moves back and forth. It can be heard anywhere in my two story house. My neighbors can hear it as we'll. I have gone so far as ordering a replacement flap and that did not help at all. A customer service rep told me that was the normal noise level. Consider this before purchasing.

Sturdy Pet Door -
How do you rate this product?

I'd give this pet door 4 stars out of 5. It is a very heavy duty door that is well made however it took us several hours and some extra foam material to get it lined up with our sliding glass door so there were no gaps. Our chocolate lab had the flap figured out after a few tries and a handful of treats.

We live at 4000 feet in the Sierra Nevadas, and have both snowy winter episodes and 75- to 90-degree summer days.

Buying this pet door was one of the smartest things we've done since we' rescued Mellow two-and-a-half years ago. There's no more popping up and down to open the deck door . . . when he wants to go outside, he simply does so, at least a dozen times a day. What a boon for our arthritic joints!

We also want to compliment Patio Pacific on the door's fine quality and easy installation. The whole family looks forward to enjoying its convenience for many years to come!

Great investment!
How do you rate this product?

Great product! Easy to install, even when choosing the stationary jam install. I did it by myself in less than 2 hours and was so pleased I had that option before I started. I did not even consider installing on the opposite side of the door on my slider, but am so thankful now that I had that choice and used the easier and more secure choice.

At first, my German Shepherd Lucy wanted nothing to do with that door, but once my Lhaso figured it out, the both go in and out with no problems! There is a huge sense of relief knowing the times I am running late, my pets can go outside when needed.

One more thing, the magnets do as they say by keeping the bugs and weather out. The security door for night and when we are away is solid and impressive.

I am so happy I made the decision to use Patio Pacific instead of a less expensive version. It works. Congratulations on a great product!

Door works really well once the dogs get the hang of it.
How do you rate this product?

I have 3 small dogs (under 12 lbs), and at first they had a hard time figuring out how to open the tight closing flap. However, now they breeze through it with no problems. In order to teach them, we taped a gallon sized ziplock bag between the flap and the door panel, in order to prop it open a few inches. My dogs finally learned that they needed to use their noses to push through. Took them a few days, but now there is no stopping them. The actual door works great, but it does not fit very well inside our sliding glass door frame. It is not near as wide as the track so it rocks back and forth a bit. We have to really wedge the sliding glass door shut against the insert in order to get a tight seal. It comes from the outside into a sunroom though, so I am not too worried about bugs and drafts and such. The flap fits very tight and the magnets work great, so no complaints there. Installation was also pretty simple. Overall, it is a great solution to the problem of needing a doggie door inside a sliding glass door.

ed. note - One of the difficulties of building a patio panel pet door is that track widths vary so widely that it's not feasible to match them. The universal practice is to build on the thin side (the Thermo Panel IIIe is 1" thick at the top) so that it's never too thick. for the customer's slider frame.

Excellent product!
How do you rate this product?

Just rec'd our order of a Patio Pacific Endura Flap™ Thermo Panel IIIel. It was delivered on time and in perfect condition! And looks great! It was very easy to install - we did have a little shifting in our home so that the bottom of the patio door was not quite flush but an additional little piece of weather stripping fixed it nicely. (we also purchased the Charley bar - this helped make a very snug fit)

I do have a question - your tips on training say that the magnets can be removed to make it easier for our little papillon to open the flap while learning how to use the door since there is such a nice snug fit when closed. I cannot see anyway to remove the magnets that won't damage the Endura Flap. I tried to pull the threshold straight up as instructed but it doesn't remove. Are the magnets supposed to slide off on the sides? What about the bottom magnet? Our papillon is trying so hard to use it .... scratching and making the door swing....but is frightened when the flap swings and catches. Any help would be appreciated.

ed. note - Unfortunately, we have no way of identifying this user and, so, cannot contact her directly. However, our recommendation would be to begin training by using duct tape to tape the threshold down during training sessions. This simple step greatly reduces the over-all magnet strength and is usually enough to make the training process easy.

Perfect in Every Way!

I was dubious that my Golden Retriever mix would fit through the flap size they'd recommended for his size, but I went with it anyway. When it arrived, I still thought "No way!", so I leaned it up against the opening in the slider to check it out before putting it together. Good thing the screen door was open, because Cody went right through the flap as soon as I stepped back to check it out. So that issue was taken care of!

The second obstacle was that the pet door wouldn't fit up tight against the slider. Again, they were right: it wasn't the pet door that was the problem -- the slider hadn't been installed straight. So I had to get the slider taken care of in order for the pet door to fit correctly.

But now all is well, and Cody loves going in and out whenever he wants.

Finally, the quality of the pet door is extremely good. The sliding glass door is brand new and the pet door blends right in.

Cody and I are both content!

How do you rate this product?

My 3 dogs woke me up to go outside during the night, always at different times, never together. Once the door was installed with about a week' time learning to use it, the dogs stopped waking me. They come & go as they please, I'm well rested and a big bonus - the temperature inside remains more stable and fewer insects are finding their way inside. Count us happy!

The door was easy to install. The only problem was the strength of the magnet closing the door. I removed it while the dogs were getting used to pushing through. The door still closed fine without the magnet.

8 dogs, 3 years and counting
How do you rate this product?

Do you know how many times 8 dogs go in and out a pet door in 3 years? A very conservative estimate is over 350,000 times. And the flap still works like the day I got it. AMAZING! Previous doors could not stand up to my pack. The flaps tore. The frame for the door broke. The flaps, and eventually the doors had to be replaced. This one? Still going strong. Yes, it costs a bit more initially. In the long run, it is soooo worth it. Cannot say enough about this product.

Worth Every Penny!
How do you rate this product?

We purchased the dual pane dog door. At first, we were concerned about the cost. However, we do not have a leaky door letting in the Arizona heat. It was easy for all our dogs to use, and they adapted quickly to the tri-panel door concept. I would purchase this product every time for the energy efficiency. I installed it myself while my husband slept in one Saturday morning. It was very easy and the instructions are simple to follow. Plus, the door looks great.

Our only complaint is we received the bug buster, and although it was included free, it is bent and does not work. The rubber bends back and allows bugs to enter our screen door when open. We need to have another sent to us, but I keep forgetting to call.

I live in north-central Wisconsin where -30 degrees weather is not unusual each winter. This product worked great to keep the cold out but lets my four dogs come-and-go as they please. I can hear the flap close which I like but the noise could be bothersome to some people. My dogs are quite large so I appreciated the options for the riser height. My only concern has been that the "hinges" for the flap (upper left and right hand corners of the flap) becomes unaligned and I have to force it back into place.

I live in the hot south, which is why I wanted the double paned glass. Thank you.

My SECOND Endura-flat door
How do you rate this product?

As wonderful as my first experience was with this company about 5 or 6 years ago when I had a custom door made, as great was my second experience ordering my second door!

The door arrived via Fed Ex and I eagerly just initially put it in place! Perfect fit. Perhaps during packing of the door the side bellows of the ENDURAFLAP became twisted and there was about 1/4 inch variance on one side of the flab allowing air in. I called and Alan immediately sent me an e-mail and gave me the option of either them picking it up and replacing the door, or I could try a simple fix first. I tried the the fix, which was placing the flap end of the door on my lap, and using my hair drier on MEDIUM I worked the bellows, (while the flap remained in the flap frame,) with my index finger of my left hand while holding the hair drier in my right hand. It only told about 30-45 seconds before the small problem of the flap on meeting the farm perfectly was fixed. I'm 60 years old, need a knee replacement, and I did this under 5 minutes! Fixing this was far easier than re-packing the box for shipment back! This is an amazing company and it starts at the top down! I wouldn't hesitate one minute from buying a 3rd door from them, or telling you NOT TO WORRY about any problems you might think you have, because Alan and his company will work it out to your satisfaction! Thank you Alan!

Excellent door

I have had the door installed almost four months now and am very pleased with both door and flap.The flap did accumlate some ice on the inside on 10 degree to -5 nites. my 15 lb multi-poo was wearing the hinges out by the third day.

Good Quality Overall
How do you rate this product?

This is a very well designed door for the most part. The primary issues we have had appear to revolve around the lack of standards for sliding glass doors. For example, we cannot tightly seat the door against the wall or the sliding glass door against the pet door. Therefore, even with the quality weather stripping that was included we have gaps where we can feel drafts coming through or even see daylight. This makes the double paned glass somewhat less valuable. However, the energy efficiency is there. A winter of using this door and we did not have the pet door fog up or develop ice like less expensive single pane doors do.

The flap is a strong selling point in that it is very firm when shut. We have not had the wind blow it open once. Our dog took a little more work getting used to this new door than his last one. A few times he did not seem to think that he could open the door. One he realized he had to push harder it has been smooth sailing. The flap magnets can be rather loud when they catch though. This may be exacerbated by our vaulted ceiling. in any case, the door flap may prove to be quite loud and that may bother you.

Overall, I still think this is the best dog door of its kind out there. We need to come up with a better weather strip plan to stop the drafts. Installation was very easy though. We just used a cut down broom handle to keep the sliding glass door from being able to open for security purposes.

ed. note. We cannot identify reviewers hence this message: Please give me a call about the drafts problem. Best regards, Alan 800-826-2871 x 201

2 dogs, 1 busy lifestyle, freezing cold winter! Answer: This PET DOOR! I had ordered this door for my 6' patio door, IN AN APARTMENT! I had it made to measure, and it was shipped perfectly. I had it installed by my contractor, and years ago I even made my own "bug warder"(wasn't available then) Then I moved to a CONDO townhouse, this perfect door came with me. Now I've moved to a house, ordered a patio door to replace a window AND the CONDO and the TOWNHOUSE patio doors were COMMERCIAL grade, and thus HIGHER! My customer door no longer fits the new house patio door, and I have to order another one. Any issues I had about installing were all taken care of by the owner of company, and he even called me on the phone 2X. I can't tell you strongly enough how perfect these doors are, or how good this company and customer service is.

Good Door
How do you rate this product?

Delivered on-time, well-packed and as-advertised. The little packet of treats was a nice touch.

Easy Installation: Yes. Good documentation

Safe & Secure: probably as good as a patio door insert can be. The locking cover is sturdy and snaps in positively.

Superior Insulation: Well, there is some good double-pane low-emissivity glass. The conductive losses through the all-metal construction are noticeable however and I wonder if a thermal break is feasible at this price point. Foam tape and a rubber sweeper seal are helpfully provided with the door to complete the installation.

Design is all about tradeoffs and with adjustable step-over comes air infiltration in this case. There are miniscule gaps between the pieces used to support adjustable step-over, and air gets through them. These are easily sealed with clear packing tape.

The flap closes positively, seals well, and does a good job of staying closed in howling winds. My cat can't push it open, which is annoying to him but is fine with me.

Built to Last: Seems to be well constructed and finished with good hardware, and the flap looks robust.

Fits any door: It dropped right in to mine and the adjustable portion at the top was effective. My door frame wasn't quite square so I needed to use some 3/4 inch backer rod to complete the seal around the insert.

All in all, good door.

How do you rate this product?

This pet door fit very well in my wood sliding door. It keeps the wind and snow out and the dog loves her freedom.
Cons were that it was very difficult to get the door to lock, the installer worked a long time on that and the piece of weather stripping for between the doors was way to narrow to provide any air stoppage at all. Installer finally went to hardward store and used a garage door weather strip which works well, not very attractive but effective.

ed. note. The Draft Stopper included with the Thermo Panel IIIe has an over-all width of 1 7/8" of which 1/2" is used up by the adhesive strip leaving 1 3/8" available to bridge the gap between your sliding and stationary panels. If your gap is greater than that (please measure), you'll need another solution. Draft stoppers come with nearly all patio panels but none are wider.

Purchased the door because my Boston Terrier is home alone all day. She is older and has some health issues so its very important for her to be able to get outside during the day. The door has been wonderful! Easy installation and my dog learned to use it the first day. Used foam pipe wrap to block the air leaking in the gap because of the sliding door being open. A great addition, glad I made the investment!

I purchased this door 5 years ago in a bronze color, large flap, and a 80 1/4" Track Height. I have three dogs that go in and out all day long 365 days a year 16 hours a day, approximately 25 times per day on average, and this door still works as good as the day I purchased it. The only negative I would have is the draft flap which did not stay in place very long but I went to the hardware store and purchased a foam rubber strip that I install between the sliders to keep the draft out and since I don't use the door very much the foam rubber works fine and is easy to re-install when I do use the door. This is a great product and very energy efficieint.


ed. note. - The key to successful draft stopper installation is to carefully clean the metal surface first with acetone, fingernail polish remover or similar.

I am very pleased with this product and could not ask for better customer service since I sort of screw up with the weather strip.I forgot that it is 3/8 inch thick. Reading all the instructions for once and not putting the weather strip on in case of return I fit the panel in the frame and found that my door would not close over the top spring loaded two pieces. I called customer service and tried to explain my problem to Traci. She thought I might have got two caps for another size door and would send me what should be the right ones. In the mean time I got nervous as temps were going down to 5-10 degrees, so I cut the caps down remounted and my door closed over the panel. took panel out put on weather strip closed door to panel and had a 1/4 inch gap due to weather strip. when the ship panels arrived they were the same ones and now fit perfect. As I could not return the ones I cut I talk to custome service to bill me for the shipped ones. They E-mailed and said after much deliberation and laughter (I'm sure) they would forgive the cost of them.
I highly recommend PATIO PACIFIC products and their prompt courteous service to anyone who is in the market for any type of pet door.

I have had this panel for about two years and find that it meets my needs. Living in the midwest creates a variety of temperature changes which this product can handle.

I could not ask for anything better.

This door has been revolutionary for me. No longer do I have that anxiety about how many hours I've been away. My nine year old Cocker Spaniel got the hang of it in only a few days, and she can now safely go out into the fenced yard whenever she needs to.
The door looks great, went in very easily (yes, I did measure many times). I bought some pipe insulation (the tube foam kind} and found that it sealed the spaces neatly and effectively. The enclosed stick to the door foam would not have sealed my sliding door very well because my door was not perfectly square.
I installed it all myself- and I'm a "senior". Very Highly Recommended.

We bought our door about 2 years ago, we were a little skeptical because of the higher price. We have had dog dorrs for years but I can say we have NEVER HAD A DOG DOOR WITH THE QUALITY OF THIS ONE. The flap is great, wind does not blow it open and the dogs love it.
I just called customer service to find out about ordering a replacement flap because our new puppy loves to chew on the flap !!!!!!! I guess that is expected with a new puppy !!!! Customer wervice was great in explaining to me the cost and how to install.
Thank You Pacific Patio !!!

Just received this door less than 48 hours ago, and I'm not sure who loves it more, me or the dog. At first, she was scared of it and ran. Then she got the nerve to come closer, but just stared at it like a calf at a new gate. But, within 24 hours, she was going in and out of her new door like a pro. I love the new freedom it give us both, and truly appreciate the quality and craftsmanship. HIGHLY recommend.

Very Pleased

After doing a lot of online research, and talking a couple of times with Patio Pacific customer service (who were very helpful), we ordered this door w/ 2-day delivery. It was delivered on time and in good shape. Unpacking was easy, the installation directions were clear, and it appears to be an excellent product. As we live in an older house with "replacement" sliding glass doors, everything was a little bit out of plumb, but nothing anyone with a bit of handyman experience couldn't handle easily. While the "Bug Warden" is included, it seems to me that if you properly install the weatherstripping, you have a good bug barrier. At least at first blush, I would say we are extremely pleased with the product, as is our 70 pound yellow lab pub, who, with about 15 minutes' coaching, has already learned that he has his own door.

EXCELLENT-- Wish I Would Have Ordered This Sooner!

When contemplating ordering this door 18 months ago, I was hesitant to purchase such a large, fragile and costly item on-line. I have suffered for the past 18 months with a less-than-desirable, home-made alternative and finally decided to take the risk. I placed my order on a Monday and received it just 4 days later on Friday. The shipment was delivered well packaged and undamaged. I had it in place in just a few minutes and couldn't be more pleased. Before ordering this one, I had tried another brand which was cheaper and available at my local Lowe's or Home Depot store, but it didn't work because the step-over rise was too high. This is the only door on the market with a low step-over rise (adjustable) and an extra large flap opening, which is very important for small dogs and aging dogs. You'll find that all other brands will increase the height of the rise as the size of the flap gets larger, but that won't work if you have a small dog as well as a large dog. Again, I held off on purchasing this one partly because of the cost and secondly for the difficulty in returning the item if it didn't work out. I can guarantee that if you measure your door correctly and follow the tips on the website, the door will fit perfectly. I have 3 dogs and 3 cats. My medium-sized beagle had the flap figured out within 5 minutes, and then taught my larger and smaller dogs how to get in and out. I just can't say enough about the quality of this door. It's an EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT product and well worth the cost!

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your product

I recently purchased a Thermo Panel IIIe pet door from you. At first I was hesitant to spend that much on a dog door sight unseen. But after doing LOTS of research on the internet and reading almost all the reviews available, I decided to take the plunge.

I was looking for a well built door, possibly double paned glass and with easy installation. After looking at what types of doors the major retailers were selling, both online and brick and mortar stores, none had what I was looking for exactly. I also needed it delivered to me quickly, within a week of placing the order as well.

I placed my order on a Monday, online and before noon, thinking I will receive it on Thursday or Friday of that week. To my surprise it arrived on Wednesday!!, a mere 48 hours of placing my order. It came very well packaged and not damaged. It was sooooo easy to install, well under a hour. Actually, it took me longer to get the door out of the box than to install it (you really use some heavy duty glue on your boxes!).

I have a Cardigan Welsh Corgi mix named Bailey, so he has very short legs, but a normal sized body. Having the options with your door as far as the rise height, was a major selling point. I also followed your instructions to the letter about measuring my dog correctly to get the right sized door, which turned out to be a medium. Upon installing the door and seeing the size of the opening, I said to myself, "It's too small". But I remembered reading on your website that's what it's supposed to look like. But I was still doubtful.

I started to treat train Bailey as soon as the door was installed and amazingly he fit through the door perfectly!! I have the rise set to the lowest point and he doesn't need to jump over it to use the door and his body doesn't rub the sides of the door either. It took him a couple of hours to learn to use his head to push open the flap. At first he would stop at the door and sniff around then gently use his head to push the flap and walk through. I had taken off the metal piece on the bottom of the flap and removed the magnet, so the door would open easily.

Now a week after installing the door, Bailey hits that door at full running speed to go in or out. I think he thinks it's some type of game.
But the flap is so well made, I have no concerns about it's construction holding up to the abuse. I also have an indoor thermometer set up very close to the dog door and have noticed that there is absolutely no change in the temperature after installing the door. There are no gaps and I don't feel any air moving around the frame. It is a very well constructed unit and very well insulated.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with your product and if the situation were to come again on needing another dog door, you will definitely get my business.

We are the next generation of dogs!!

Believe it or not, I have had this door for approximately 18 years!! I am amazed that I had 3 dogs that have all passed on at ages above 13 years and we now have another set of 3 pups that are still using the same door! I cannot say enough about the durability and quality. There is nothing like it!

Superb Features

I have had this pet door for around 2 years. I live in the Pacific Northwest in the Columbia River Gorge - high winds, rain, sleet, snow, blazing hot summers. This door is superb - seals tight. The pet door flap has a magnetized bottom that, at the bottom of its swing, "attracts" the bottom frame piece that floats up and down about a 1/2 in. As a Mechanical Engineer, I am impressed with its simple yet functional and innovative design. It is very adjustable. The quality is top notch. The pet door panel as a unit probably seals better than the sliding glass door itself.

I highly recommend this door. I also purchased a security bar kit and rubber sealing kit to help block bugs around the sliding screen door. ( I forget the nomenclature used by the website for these additional options.) It all works very well with good instructions.

My only complaint - which is extremely minor in nature - is that it did not come with enough self-adhesive sealing strip. No worries. A quick trip to the local hardware store, at a minor expense, purchased another roll of wide adhesive sealing strip, most of which is still in my garage.

THANK YOU!! for this flap

I have had multiple house dogs for years and have gone thru many a flap on various patio dog doors. The flaps would tear with the heavy use of multiple dogs, the replacements did not fit or were not available, the frame around the door cracked, the screws came out, you name it. And the flaps never closed securely, allowing air to leak around the sides and a windy day would blow them open.

This flap is everything they claim it to be. It seals tightly on the bottom and sides. It flexes and the top pivots in such a way that it doesn't tear. After six months of constant use by EIGHT dogs the flap still works as designed without tears. My biggest dog weighs in at about 70 pounds, so I got the large size. My smallest dog is only 10.5 pounds and 13 inches tall at the shoulder. I wondered if he would be able to open the flap since the magnets hold it securely to the frame. But he figured it out within a day.

I was skeptical reading the claims for this flap, and hesitated whether to pay the extra money for this rather than the other brands I had tried before. I am glad I opened up the wallet and ordered. My 8 dogs and I highly recommend it.

They work GREAT

Just wanted to thank you SO MUCH, both for your excellent customer service (answering all my dumb and paranoid questions), AND a truly amazing product.

I installed one Thermo Panel III between my house and my sunroom (which can get hot or cold), and another between the sunroom and outdoors so my dog can be in, in the sunroom, or outside.

They work GREAT. I did a semi-custom install next to the non-moving slider panels so I could insulate well and still use my locks. Your insulation was excellent (nice and thick, and the slider-to-fixed-panel-seal was first rate), and I added a bit more for my custom situation. And the Endura doors are fabulous. I taped the bottom down to start so they have a bit less resistance in the learning phase. It comes off tomorrow.

Thanks again to you and your whole crew for providing everything I could have asked for and more.

We love it....thank you!
