Aluminum Pet Door

This door is a part of the "Energy Saver" series of Ideal Pet Doors. Our customers report many positive experiences in using the “Energy Saver.” This particular model is a significant upgrade to the Ideal "Ultra Flex" line of pet doors released earlier. The design is exactly the same, including the polycarbonate, multi-part flap with flexible hinges, except that the frame is aluminum rather than ABS plastic, and the flap includes 8 additional magnets on the sides to improve wind resistance.


  • Three part flap with eight draft-sealing magnets mounted on the edges.
  • Resists wind gusts up to 35 mph
  • Super strong aluminum frame with Lockout Slide

For installations near the ocean, which can cause corrosion, or where wind is not a concern, the Ideal "Ultra-Flex" is a less expensive alternative.

PLEASE NOTE: This product ships directly from the manufacturer and may take 1-3 business days before it actually ships.

How do you rate this product?

The door is no better than the cheaper door that I had bought from Lowes.

Great door
How do you rate this product?

I live in the Houston heat with two very different dogs, a Welsh corgi as well as a mid/large size terrier mix. The door works well for both even with the corgi having to jump up some from the outside, but for her, she would have to do that with any door.

A dog door that really works.
How do you rate this product?

This is my 3rd attempt at getting a dog door that works
in the cold winters in the mountains of Colorado.
This door really works. I bought 2 of these and made
a dog house in between to cut down on the draft.
It has made a tremendous difference in keeping the heat in
and the cold out. It really works.

we have had to replace this door flap 3 times in the last year . it is impossible to contact the manufacturer to get a replacement door flap. it is supposed to have a lifetime warrenty, but how do you contact them?

Thumbs Down
How do you rate this product?

I purchased this product previously through a local store. The flaps being segmented would sometimes create a gap when the dog runs through it and not close completely. I was very dissatisfied with the product and have returned it leaving a hole in my door. I am now in search of a better product.

We sometime have upto 9 dogs going through our house but alway aleast 5 the door has stayed together really well. we had it for about 4 years we live in northen Navada the only thing we have had to relpace is the flapper door. partly because we had two new puppies this last year. They can drag in and out some of the most difficult things.

Ideal Pet Products Limited Lifetime Warranty

We believe that our pet doors are the most durable on the market. That's why we were the first to offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty in workmanship and materials. All defective parts will be replaced free of charge. Limited Lifetime Warranty applies to the original purchaser only, with proof of sales receipt. Excludes flap or breakage of the glass panel.

A replacement part will be sent when we receive proof of purchase and a check in the amount of $10.00 to cover shipping and handling, payable to:

24735 Ave. Rockefeller
Valencia, California 91355
Attn: Pet Products Warranty Dept.

This warranty is void if damage to material is due to improper installation or intentional abuse.

As with any home improvement project, if you do not have the tools or skills to properly install your pet door, we suggest using a professional handyman or licensed contractor.

Ideal imposes a 15% restocking fee on all returns.
