The Hale screen door is the strongest design available. It attaches to the metal frame for the screen on the side and across the bottom, making it a much better choice for dogs than a pet door that only clips to the screen mesh, like the Ideal Screen Fit cat door.
The flaps are the same as those used on the very weather tight door model. While weather tightness might not be a factor on a screen installation, these will also be more bug proof than other pet doors. The screen model does not come with a locking cover
When installing a pet door of this type the "rise" dimension is fixed. This means that the screen frame will have it's dimension, and the pet door will sit on top of the screen frame, and the pet door will be approximately 1 " over the top of the screen frame. This is fine for smaller dogs or cats, because the pet door usually starts about 3 " off the ground. With larger dogs, the pet door can be a bit low, so we usually recommend that you get a taller flap than you would for a regular door installation.
The pictures of the frame colors will vary with your particular monitor and the brown background on the pictures doesn't do us any favors, but they are shown to give an approximate idea of the colors available. Satin is actually a brushed aluminum, similar to the bottom of a soda can. A good description of the beige is like coffee with 2 creams in it. White is bright white, bronze is almost black.
As of June, 2016 the Tall Large and larger sizes will automatically be shipped with a 48" stabilizer bar that matches the pet door frame color. We also offer the bar as an accessory for use with smaller doors. If your pets will charge through the pet door at full speed, it is a worthwhile upgrade. The stabilizer bars come in 36" and 48" lengths and can be cut to fit your door if your door isn't exactly 36" or 48".
A great testimonial on a Lanai installation: "Hello, Just wanted to let you know that my Hale pet door flap is finally starting to break down and I will be ordering a replacement flap. What is remarkable is that I purchased this in 2007, and have two very active Labrador Retrievers who've used the door constantly for 7 years now. Great product, great service. It's so refreshing when a product exceeds expectations. Best Regards, Jim S. Coconut Creek, FL" And here is another from a new installation: "I installed my door this morning in about 30 minutes. It took the dog about 10 minutes to figure it out and she has since made several excursions through the door. This is a great addition to our house. Thank you, Michael G. Peabody, MA"
If your wood screen frame has a metal insert, this door will work. If your wood screen frame has two pieces of wood which sandwich the screen mesh, it will not work.
Attention DIY Installers:
We have had quite a few customers complain after receiving their door that the spline channel is on the wrong side. The Hale screen door has a channel for the spline on both sides of the frame, but for some reason one side looks obvious and the other does not.
