What 3 things do I have to know/measure when choosing a pet door for sash window?
Track width, Height you can raise the window, How wide the window is from left to right.
I am not sure how to measure window width and height?
For the Omni you need to open up your sliding window to the highest it will go, and measure from the track in the bottom to the bottom of the window. For the width you need to measure inside the track on the left and all the way over to the edge of the second track, do not go inside the track on the right. You want to stop short before going into the recessed portion.
What is the difference between vertical and horizontal window models?
The omni is a cat sash for vertical window (sash window) installation. If you need a horizontal window cat door then you would need to take a look at the custom Thermo Panel 3e.
Step 1: Before you install your sash insert, ensure that it is the correct size for your cat. If you’re not sure then going a little larger is better. While cats can force their way through smaller openings, it can be damaging over time and lead to back problems. However, with a window installation, the size of the cat door will be limited by the size of the window opening. You will want to make sure that the sliding window can open enough to accommodate the sash insert as shown in Figure 1.
Step 2: Clean both sides of the glass window panes. There will be some overlap of the window panes (Figure 1) when you are finished installing the window insert. It is very hard to clean between these panes of glass with the insert installed so cleaning well beforehand is recommended.
Step 3: Unroll the strips of fuzzy gray pile weather-stripping and feed them into the channels running along the window panel. These channels will be on the side of the sash that your window closes against.
Step 4: Slide open the window and place the cat door into the window track.
Step 5: Angle the stationary side of the sash into the window track.
Step 6: Insert the rest of the sash into the window track and slide the U channel into the window frame. Move the sliding plate to the side to expose the adjusting nuts.
Step 7: Tighten the adjusting nuts with your fingers. Slide the window closed to see if there are any gaps or spaces between the sash and the window. If there are any spaces, tighten one of the nuts to make the sash lean one way or the other. Once you are satisfied with the placement, use a wrench to tighten the nuts and secure the sash firmly in place.
Step 8: Slide the piece of weatherstripping at the top edge of the sash to expose the slider adjusting screws for the slider plate. Loosen both preset screws one or two full turns. If you loosen them too much, it might cause the slider plates to fall out. Push the slide plates up until they stop. Tighten the screws to secure it into place and replace the fuzzy weatherstripping over it. There will be a gap above the fuzzy weather-stripping between the edge of the panel and the edge of the adjustment unit. Cover it with a piece of foam.
Step 9: Close the window and inspect for any gaps. If there are any, fill it in with the foam weatherstripping.
Step 10: Place vinyl weather-stripping on the top edge of the opening window or the bottom edge of the stationary window to seal the gap created by overlapping glass. Clean the edge of the spot that you chose with rubbing alcohol to ensure a good seal. Cut vinyl weather-stripping to the proper length with scissors or a knife. Remove the protective paper from the adhesive area and press firmly into position.
Step 11: If you so desire, you can put a screw or two (not included) through the window frame to prevent the window from being opened. Note: Be very careful not to drill into the glass. If you hit the window pane with either the tip of the drill bit or a screw, it will shatter. The glass in the cat door comes all the way to the edge of the frame, so don’t try to drill into the cat door frame at all.
