Features of the Thermo Panel 3e
- Dual-pane, Low-E glass insulates and filters out heat for energy efficiency.
- Flap material is a polyolefin-based polymer which is safe for your dogs, cats and the environment. Unlike others flaps it remains flexible in temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Simple design allows you to easily install and remove your panel as necessary; simply loosen the thumbscrews at the top to release the spring-loaded mechanism and tighten once in place!
- This panel will not mate with an existing sliding door lock so we include either a C-Clamp Lock for adjustment ranges up to 80 1/4", or a Foot Lock for panels 80 1/4" and above. You could also use the old "broomstick in the track" method or a Charley Bar.
- Choose from four different sizes that have a high aspect ratio, meaning they are taller and narrower to better fit more pets.
- User-adjustable step-over feature allows you to set the height of the flap to best suit your pet. Solid magnet strips along the sides and magnets at the bottom of the flap keep your pet door sealed year round. Magnets are adjustable to make training easier.
- UV and wind resistant, the Endura Flap has been designed to remain sealed in winds up to 50 mph.
- Heavy duty aluminum frame provides extreme strength and durability, designed for sliding glass door tracks at least 1” thick.
- Durable and secure locking cover to close your pet door when necessary; equivalent to 1/16” steel.
- Three height ranges to fit most sliding glass doors, and if your slider doesn’t fall within these ranges we can custom build one for you!
- 90 day return policy, and a generous 15 year warranty for your peace of mind.
Perfect Time for a Thermo Panel 3e
- If insulation is a concern, the Thermo Panel 3e is the most insulated pet door available for sliding glass doors. Perfect for extreme weather conditions, whether it be sun, snow, wind or rain.
- You find yourself replacing flaps constantly, as the Endura Flap often only needs replacing if a dog decides to take a bite out of it! It rotates on a rod at the top to eliminate any stress points that might tear over time.
- If you have multiple dogs sharing a pet door, the taller design of the Endura Flap can help you accommodate the height of the larger dog while keeping the flap low enough for the shorter dog to step through.
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. Custom panels may take up to 4 weeks.
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.
