If you have a sliding glass door, you won’t break a sweat installing this attractive sliding glass dog door -- the only one on the market that doesn‘t require a single tool. The Thermo Panel 3e comes to you with a dog door built in, so all you have to do is insert the panel into the inside track of your sliding door.
While the panel is a breeze to install, it’s also sturdy and insulated, keeping winter and summer air outside, where weather belongs.
Best of all, your pooch or kitty will have no problem darting in and out of the flexible Endura Flap without getting pinched, snagged or bonked on the head. Meanwhile, the panel can lock into your sliding door, keeping your family safe.
This Thermo-Panel 3e™ Patio Pet Door Features
Keep that drill in a drawer. And don’t worry about cutting holes in your walls or doors. The Endura Thermo Panel is so easy to install, you won’t even need to modify your slider’s framing. And it’s just as easy to uninstall should you ever want to take it with you -- which you surely would! -- to another home.
Once you get the panel, you’ll find that the adjustable step-over (the distance from the bottom of the door to the ground) conveniently allows you to customize the height of the door to tailor fit your collie, calico or Chihuahua. And if you made a mistake measuring your door when you ordered (It happens!), the panel comes with a forgiving “anti-whoops” extension.

Your four-legged friend will quickly appreciate how easy it can dash in and out of the house with the Endura Thermo Panel 3. But your pet’s freedom to come and go whenever he or she pleases shouldn’t cause you to suffer -- or pay higher energy bills.
Lesser doggy doors will allow hot and cold air to seep in, making it uncomfortable to be near them in extreme weather. But this energy efficient dog door’s superior insulation will not only keep out the elements, it will also keep the noise from your neighbor’s circular saw to a minimum.
With older, rigid dog doors, a dog could get pinched or snagged if it got startled while walking through it. And, of course, a pinched dog might quickly decide that a doggie door is not a great option.
But the Endura Flap is light and flexible, which your dog or cat will appreciate when they need to get outside in a hurry.
This flap is also built to last. Many of today’s pet door flaps are made of vinyl, which will split and eventually break with repeated use. Made of recyclable high performance polyolefin-cased polymer, the Endura Flaps -- backed by a 15-year warranty -- use pivots that cut down on wear and breakage.
For many reasons, we call this the best high-performing pet doors for sliding glass doors. If you want to review the evidence, click here to see this 74-page energy efficiency study.
Note: While Endura Flaps work for a variety of dog and cat sizes, they are not recommended for tiny dogs or kittens.
Most sliding glass doors will accommodate the three panel sizes we offer. But if our standard panels do not match your door size, we can build a custom Thermal Panel 3e for you. We can also custom make a panel for a miniature sliding glass door, provided the window track width is at least one inch.
The panels have a 3-inch spring-loaded height adjustment, so if you request a 40-inch panel, the panel you receive will adjust from 38 to 41 inches.

* Frosted glass:
Pull back those drapes with our stylish frosted glass option! Designed like the windows you see in some restrooms, our frosted glass door panel will ensure your privacy. This option will require an extra 3-4 weeks to ship because the glass is custom ordered, and there will be no return option.
* Bug Warden:
Your pets aren’t the only critters that will want to hang out in your home. Yet, during the summer months, you might want to open your glass door to allow a breeze to filter through your screen door. Since your screen can’t block your pet door, there will be a gap that might allow pesky bugs an easy entry. Luckily, the easy-to-install Bug Warden closes the gap and keeps bugs at bay. When you purchase a Bug Warden with a Thermal Panel 3, you’ll get 20 percent off.
