Door Ideally Suits

This Medium Dog Door with Aluminium Frame suits mid sized breeds and multi pet homes. Also great for small – medium sized dogs with leg or back issues to allow a greater ease of access.

**NOTE** Dogs do vary in size even within the same breed, so the above list is a guide only. The best way to find the right size for your pet is to cut the dimensions of the flap opening out of a piece of cardboard and see which size your pet is most comfortable going through.  You must always keep in mind a dog should be able to walk through at a natural level without having to jump or duck down too much, it is most important no part of the dog hits the top of the flap as he/she enters/exits.

Installation Notes
  • Glass Install – Ideally suits hinged (in or out doors), glass windows or side panels of glass where a door does not slide over due to the side on profile width of this pet door. Also suits bottom panels of glass. To fit to glass the tunnel on both sides of the door frame will need to be cut down to suit the thickness of the glass. Simply cut down the internal tunnel with an angle grinder (see photo example) for a snug glass fit. This modification is easy and takes less than 5 minutes to do. Glass cut out sizes vary from cut out positioning then from single glazed to double glazed units, please consult us if you need to order your new glass before the dog door arrives for assistance and read the above suggested cut out size information.
  • Timber Install – suits doors 30mm to 50mm (1 3/8” to 2”). This door comes as standard to fit this style fitting applications. Template is provided in the box.
  • Wall Install – APD series 2 Aluminium doors has a tunnel to suit wall installations (Tunnel sold separately)
  • Screen Door Install –  Customers have used this door for screen door install with no issue. It is the strongest XL dog door on the market making it an ideal choice however you do need to check the width of the gap in between the screen door and your other door. It will not work in a sliding door application due to the profile width of the door and you need to ensure if a hinged door that you can still close the hinged door allowing for around a 15mm gap in between.  This door is made to suit a timber door installation but we would recommend you simply cut down the internal tunnel with an angle grinder (see photo example) for a snug screen door fit. This modification easy takes less than 5 minutes to make for anyone handy with a power tool.

  • Door Liner– These models comes with slip joint the Tunnel sections as part of the door, making installation a simple slip joint installation. Completely frames in the hole made in your door. Refer to door and wall specs above.

See photos attached for view of the slide up down lock out panel which also have clips accessed by the inside only to ensure the security panel cant be slid up from the outside, a great feature.

Too Early

I have ordered and that process was good, but why get a survey before the product is delivered?

Great frame, terrible flap

The frame is excellent quality but the flap doesn't last and is hard to replace. The original flap tore at the top after 18 months despite being in a sheltered location in a mild environment and only used by one dog. The screws securing it were too tight to remove with a screwdriver but there wasn't enough room to get a drill in, even with an angle attachment, and so we had to remove the inner frame. This was very hard to do due to the silicone we had applied during installation as advised in the instructions, and so the inner frame was damaged and now needs to be replaced.

Flaps wear out quickly / no response to requests

Brought this item in mid 2021. Have replaced flap on four occasions due to the flap tearing near / where the screws hold it in place - despite their claim that the 'thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) resin flap will not puncture, tear, or change shape'.
I requested advice / options re a stronger flap in June last year, and again last month but have not got a response on either occasion.
