Single or Double Flap Cat Doors
Available in a single flap version and a two flap version--one flap on the inside of the frame and one to the outside--with an approximate 1" dead air space between them (see "Number Flaps"column). Both flaps have magnets to stand up to wind and a brush-type weather stripping between the magnets. As a result, the Hale cat door stands up to wind much better than other single flap pet doors will and the dead air space provides better insulation than a single flap pet door.
Flaps Double flaps (one flap on each door surface) made of flexible 3/16” clear PVC vinyl.
Inner Frame Inner frame made of two separate metal extrusions. Three sides entrap the security cover. Both metals are .063” wall thickness.
Outer Frame Extruded 6063-T5 aluminum with .063” wall thickness. Designed to sleeve into the inside frame.
Flange The outer frame flange is .070” smaller than the inner frame flange to allow the frame to sleeve together.
Alnico5 Magnets A ¼” rod magnet 1 ½” long made from an aluminum, nickel and cobalt alloy known for its strength and durability. Door size determines number of magnets.

It is attached to the cover with a 12 mm long zinc coated steel flat head Philips screw with a .70 thread size that is countersunk to prevent scratching the frame.
