PARTS & TOOLS
1x Window pet door
1x Foam Weather Strip
1x Center Post Weather Seal Draft Stopper
Step 1: Loosen the thumbscrews at the end of the sash. This allows the spring mechanism to move freely side to side.
Step 2: Insert the sash 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 weatherstrip. This strip prevents air from 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 thumbscrews. 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.
What things should I measure/consider when choosing a cat flap door for my sash window?
- 1. What size pet door your dog or cat will need
- 2. How high you can raise the window (will it raise high enough to fit the pet door size you selected)
- 3. The width of the window (from the deepest part of the left track to the deepest part of the right track)
- 4. The width of the track (must be at least 1" to accommodate the Thermo Panel)
How do I determine the size of pet door my pet will need?
The door should be wide enough that it does not touch your pet's sides as they go through, and the top of the pet door should clear your pet's back by at least one inch. Take a look at our guide on how to measure your pet for more information. For a large cat door or dog door, make sure that the window you are installing in will accommodate the flap height you choose.
What makes the Thermo Sash 3e better than the other manufacturer's sash window pet doors?
The Thermo Sash includes the patented Endura Flap Pet Door which has a dual-layered flap employing magnets around the edges for superior sealability and insulation. It uses dual-pane, LoE glass for added insulating properties. Both of these are housed in a sturdy aluminum frame. It is made in the USA and backed by a lifetime warranty.
How wide does the window track have to be to accommodate the Thermo Sash 3e?
Your window track must be at least 1 inch wide for thermo sash 3e pet door installation.
Which Thermo Sashes are considered custom and are not returnable?
All Extra Large pet door sashes and any pet door size in a sash width with a 22"-25" adjustment range.
Can I move the flap on the Thermo Sash from the left side to the right?
Yes you can switch the side the pet door is on. You start by removing the screws on the top and bottom, then sliding the flap assembly out. Once it is removed you simply flip it upside down and slide it right back in. Next you put the screws back in, tighten them all down and you're finished. You'll want to make sure the thumb screws and locking cover are on the same side.
Can you make a Thermo Sash smaller than the 22" wide?
You can make it 3/4" inch smaller by trimming the right side (spring loaded piece). If this is not enough, we may be able to make a custom width with less or no glass. Please call us with your specific needs for us to review the possibility.
