What do I need to know/measure before I order?
First raise up your window and check that it can go up far enough to be left with an opening 18 1/2" high. Next measure the width of the track from left to right, including going inside the track on both sides. Last measure how wide the track is that the window slides in (needs to be at least 1")
How wide does the track have to be for the Thermo Sash 3e to fit?
Track width needs to be at least 1" thick.
Can I choose what side the door is on?
It comes standard on the left, if you are looking from the inside of the house. You can switch it to the other side if you need and that only requires a screwdriver.
Is this easy to install?
This is designed to be a fairly simple install that does not require any tools. Take a look at the video under the installation tab to see if it something you would be able to do.
Will this door be good for more extreme weather?
The Thermo Sash 3e has the Endura Flap which is far better in sealing and durability than other models. Dual pane lo-e glass offers superior insulation value. Therefore, the Thermo Sash will be a much more reliable and longer lasting option then the more inexpensive options.
Is it possible to make one that fits a window smaller than 22"?
We can, the only thing is that we would not be able to use glass so there would be quite a bit of aluminum and some customers are not happy with the aesthetics. This would also fall under the custom and non-returnable category.
My cat is having a hard time opening the flap is there something I can do that would make it easier?
You can by removing some of the magnets. On the videos tab check out the "Adjusting Magnet Strength for Training."
What if I mis-measured?
If you've mismeasured, you may be able to fix it. To make your sash cat door about 1" wider, you may purchase a width extension (or make your own using 1" x lumber). To make your window kitty door insert slightly shorter you may trim the side flanges on the spring loaded adjustment piece with a hacksaw or a jigsaw with a metal cutting blade.
What does custom mean?
Any of the Thermo Sash doors with "Custom" listed means that the door is built to order and therefore it is non-returnable.
Can I get a custom height?
We can only do custom widths, not custom heights.

Installation Instructions for the Thermo Sash 3e Cat Doors for Sash Windows
PARTS & TOOLS
- Window pet door
- Foam weather stripping
- Center post weather seal draft stopper
Step 1: Loosen the thumb screws at the end of the sash. This allows the spring mechanism to move freely side to side.
Step 2: Insert the panel into the window track. Push against the spring mechanism and swing the opposite end into the opposite window track. Gently release. Tighten the thumbscrews. If the pet door sits properly, remove the pet door to put on the foam weather stripping in step 3.
Step 3: Apply the foam weather-stripping by peeling back the paper and exposing the adhesive. Unroll it along the edge of the panel, pressing to ensure it adheres. Install on both the top and the bottom. Trim to fit with scissors.
Step 4: Mount the draft stopper vinyl weather strip. This strip prevents air leaking between the window frame when raised to accommodate the sash. Trim to fit with scissors.
LOCKING YOUR WINDOW
For a permanent lock, install a wood screw in the track immediately above the window on both sides. You will no longer be able to raise the window.
For a temporary lock, place a removable wooden dowel or charley bar in either track above the window.
SWITCH SIDE OF FLAP
Remove the screws on the top and bottom closest to the edge of the pet door. Then slightly loosen the screws closest to the glass. Next, slide off the side piece, then the flap assembly. Rotate the flap assembly (essentially flipping it upside down) then slide it back in. Make sure the locking cover is on the same side as the thumb screws. Replace the end spacer and screws.
HEIGHT OF YOUR WINDOW
Make sure you place steps or ramps leading to your pet’s door at a height that works. When they go through the flap, the top of the flap should be at least 1” (2,5 cm) higher than the top of their back. Watch your pet and adjust as needed to keep them comfortable.
If your window is thicker than 1 inch, your locking cover may hit the overhanging window. If you cannot place the sash flush with the inside track wall, you might not be able to install your thermo sash with the locking cover in place.
REMOVING YOUR THERMO SASH PET DOOR
You will first need to loosen the thumbscrews, you may first need to lift the pet door up to loosen the bottom screw. Then compress the window pet door and tighten the thumbscrews once again for easy removal.
