Is it possible to install a PlexiDor through a load-bearing wall?

When working with a load-bearing wall, it is important not to compromise the structural integrity of the wall. You can still install a PlexiDor, but the way to do it will differ with the pet door size.

PlexiDor Wall SeriesPlexiDor sizes up to and including the large door will fit between the studs in a wall, so the framing structure won’t change. Just removing insulation will not weaken your wall.

If you’re installing an Extra Large PlexiDor, it’s wider than the space between studs and you you will need to cut one. Add a cross member support to the framing to even the load – this will ensure the weight is still distributed evenly.
