Special Deal - Purchase a Bug Warden with any Ideal patio panel and get a 20% discount on the Bug Warden. Great idea if you want ventilation through your slider on warm days.  The discount shows up in your cart.

Here are the key points:

  • Dual pane "Low E" glass for better insulation
  • New Ultra Flex flap which is semi-flexible to be safe and still insulates and seals even in cold weather. Made of Lexan, it is 'chew-proof'. As an alternative, you may choose the Hefty Cat version which includes the 4-way locking Hefty Cat cat flap in the VIP panel framing. The Hefty Cat flap is, however, rigid and less safe than the medium size.
  • A locking mechanism that utilizes your existing lock! (This has never been done before)
  • Vinyl framing that insulates better than conventional metal framing.
  • The VIP door installs 'semi-permanently'. However, the latches for fastening it in place are hidden inside the jamb. No visible screws and no drilling holes in any visible location. * Framing of the VIP fits 1 1/2" to 1 3/4" thick tracks. It will straddle rails up to a maximum thickness of 3/4" wide and 1/4" tall. Note that if your rail is taller than 1/4", you may still use the VIP but you must deduct the additional rail height from your total measured height.
  • Two adjustable height ranges are offered. In addition, you may add a height extension piece (one only for stability) to gain an additional 2". See the Size Chart for details.
  • Available in an "off-white" only.

Bottom line

If you have a vinyl framed sliding glass door, if the sizes and rise options suit your pet and if you don't mind a minor installation job then this one will look more like it 'belongs' than any other panel pet door.

There are quite a few details that might be important for you to think about in purchasing any panel pet door.

Very high quality
How do you rate this product?

The overall fit and finish was very good and the quality of the door seems really good. The installation was a bit more cumbersome than I had anticipated and was fairly time consuming although the instructions were accurate. I would recommend this door to anyone wanting a secure long lasting door for their dogs.

Great door but....
How do you rate this product?

So i got this magnificent door, to fit my HUGE 96 inch sliding door. while it was a great fit, i also had a problem withe the h shaped plastic adjustments (on top) not reaching the whole distance across the top of doggy door. (leaving a 2 inch gap.

i called customer service and they directed me to the manufacturer who could only send me another one (not a bigger one that would actually fit) just another h beam so i could rig something up to fit. In the end i found some weather stripping that covered it (store and some glue). However it left a sour taste in my mouth that such an expensive item would not fit, nor would actually have the correct size beams (beams are actually 2 inches or so shorter then width of doggy door) so i am not sure how they expect it to fit.

As for the below review talking about the draft guard, i was under the impression that went on the back of the now half open door to block the draft from there. i do have a guard that goes in between the door (sliding) and doggy and i still have the gap.

Overall a great door with very durable materials. However beware some manual adjustments and improvisations may be needed for a snug and draft free fit..

Great product
How do you rate this product?

We are very happy with this product.

The "H" shaped plastic adjustment for the top of the door is 1/2" too short so we had to cut a piece of 2x4 to fill the gap and caulk it.

The only part that doesn't seal well is where the two regular sliding doors now mismatch with each other. We are still looking for a solution besides taping it on both the inside and outside spaces.

This product is expensive but well-made and worth the investment.

ed. note - The Ideal VIP product includes a 'draft stopper' designed to seal the gap mentioned. This customer should call our customer service if that item was missing from the package (we cannot identify our reviewers).

An awesome product
How do you rate this product?

I've had this door for 5 years and I love it. It fits right in with my patio slider and looks like it was built in.

I am totally blown away by this company. I recently noticed that the 10 inch strip of weather stripping was worn and I called Ideal to get a replacement weather strip. Instead of just the strip, they sent a whole new door flap (the dual pane, triple tile one), at no charge to me.

If I had another door, I would buy Ideal with no questions. They aren't cheap, but given that the fit was effortless, the quality unmatched, and the service incredible... there is no reason to consider any other door.

Great
How do you rate this product?

Perfect fit! Never had a dual pane sliding glass door, so I was relieved to find the Ideal VIP 150 Patio Panel Dog Door. It works like a charm.
