Many home builders are opting for swing open glass French doors instead of sliding glass doors. While sliding doors are easy to install pet doors into, French doors are considerably harder. Glass in doors has been tempered in the United States since the 70s, so cutting the glass in the door is not an option. If you do have a sliding door, you may still opt for a through glass installation. Most panel pet doors are not very weather tight, but even a very good one like the Thermo Panel 3e takes up some room in the doorway, with a narrow door and a large doggy door, this can leave an opening too small for people to get through. Some don't like having a panel installed because it ruins the symmetry of the door.
Regardless of the reason for installing the doggy dor through glass, the Pet Door Guys have a solution: this product is a pre-manufactured glass unit in its own frame with the excellent Endura pet door already installed. It has one large sheet of glass on top, with a smaller pane next to an Endura pet door below. This is shipped to you complete, and your local glass company just disassembles your door and swaps out the original glass with this unit. The standard unit does have a maximum glass unit size of 34 x 76. If your glass is larger than 34" wide OR 76" tall, it will be considered "Oversize 1". If it is larger than both 34" wide AND 76" tall, it will be "Oversize 2". Max dimensions on oversize are 46" wide and 92" tall.
Oversize doors cannot ship to residential addresses, but we can ship them to business addresses.
When ordering we need payment via the website or by phone, and the order form filled out, signed, and faxed or emailed. The link for the .pdf form is right above the sizes and prices table at the right. Since these are custom built to fit your window, this item is a final sale and we will not accept returns unless the item is defective or damaged in shipping. Installation of the Pet Door Guys units is not as hard as you might imagine. The first step in ordering one of these units is to pick up the phone and call a local glass shop. They will need to come to your home twice. During the first visit they will partially disassemble the door and provide you with the exact size of the glass unit so that you can complete an order, and a second time to install the completed unit after it arrives. Because of the custom glass size for every order, glass is not stocked and the wait time is approximately 3 to 4 weeks, plus shipping time from Washington state.One thing to look out for is the height of the kick plate at the bottom of a French door. These are typically 8 or 10 inches tall. The Endura pet door adds 3.5" or so to the bottom of the flap. If you have a shorter dog, you may end up with a pet door that is uncomfortably high off the ground. The extra rise option is almost never needed on French door installations.
If you want a pet door without the T frame in the window, have a look at the Hale In Glass pet door. The Hale door is sold as the dog door alone, and you will need to find a local glass shop to make a new piece of glass to install it into. Although the price of the Hale is lower up front it ends up being quite a bit more expensive after the installation costs are figured in.
