Description

Approved for Coastal Storm and High Wind Regions

PlexiDor HURCAN Series

The PlexiDor® HURCAN Series is the only NAMI certified dog door designed for the coastal areas from Maine to Florida to Texas (except HVHZ). The PlexiDor team manufactures in Florida – we know storms firsthand. A standard PlexiDor passes testing for non-coastal areas right out of the box. The new HURCAN Series with our unique integral shutter system, passes the stringent impact testing required to achieve certification. Simply apply the shutters for the most protection during severe storm conditions.

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, Large, and Extra 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.
