Colors

 

PlexiDor offers three elegant colors to compliment the decor' of your home.

Choose from White, Silver or Bronze. Silver frames feature an anodized finish. White and Bronze frames feature a baked-on powder coating for increased durability, similar to the appliances in your home. A PlexiDor Pet Door is by far the most attractive pet door you will ever install in your home.

Our finishes will integrate perfectly into your home!

  • The white finish highlights common household appliances as well as most baseboards and trims and blends with most traditional decors.
  • The silver finish coordinates with newer stainless-steel appliances and looks great in a modern setting.
  • The bronze finish works well with darker toned furniture and accessories by adding an updated feel to the room.

A baked-on powder coated finish is far more durable than conventional paint. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping,  scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes.

Security

Safety for you and your pet is our highest priority. Each door comes with a lock and key and a steel plate that can be easily attached on for extra security.

Lock and Key
All models come with a lock and two keys for everyday use. Just turn the key to lock out unwanted guests. Heavy duty steel lock visible only from the inside resists tampering. The small size door has a four-way lock that can be set to open, locked, open for entry, and open for exit.

Steel Security Plate
Medium and large size PlexiDor dog doors include a steel security plate that screws on easily when you leave for an extended period of time. To use the security plate daily, install the optional PlexiDor Sliding Track – so the door can be conveniently dropped into place and closed with a flip lock in seconds. Small size doors are too small for an intruder to enter and do not come with the steel security door.

Installation

Installing your PlexiDor Pet Door at the correct height will ensure the door is comfortable for your pet to use. Stepping up and through the door is best.
