A pet door is a convenient way to provide freedom to an active pet. The Ideal is our least expensive pet door option. The glass is 1/8" tempered safety glass, and the pet door frame immediately surrounding the flap is plastic. Comes with plastic cover to close off the pet door. The rest of the frame is aluminum. Ideal pet doors are available in Bronze, White, and Satin (brushed aluminum) frame colors. This is a no-tools installation, although the included pin lock does require drilling. Every Ideal pet door comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
The difference between the Cat Flap size and the small sizes is that the Cat Flap has a 4 way lock. It can be set for In Only, Out Only, Locked, or Open. The small has the typical slide in locking cover. There is also an electronic E-Cat version which will work with cats and small dogs. It functions more reliably with short legged dogs since the collar key needs to get near the bottom of the flap which is about 5 " off the ground to trigger the electronic lock. E-Cat panels are only available in white. For more on the E-Cat door, click HERE.
If you need a raccoon proof cat door, the E-Cat will not do. It works for most strays and wild critters, but a determined raccoon can get past it. Instead, buy the cat flap pet door, and then retrofit it with a SureFlap DualScan cat door
. The DualScan just happens to fit exactly the same size hole as the Cat Flap. It is raccoon proof and works with your cat's existing implanted microchip, if it has one. If not, the DualScan can be used with collar keys
as well. Click here for a short video showing how easy it is to swap the doors out.
The color sample on the right will vary with your particular monitor, and the colors of the pet doors vary slightly by manufacturer, but it is shown to give an approximate idea of the colors available. Satin is actually a brushed aluminum, similar to the bottom of a soda can.
