Do you need a large dog door or an extra large dog door? PlexiDor offers different sizes to accommodate various breeds. Small and medium dogs, as well as cats, can use the medium size doors.

You can choose from clear glass or Low-E glass for your dog door. Clear glass provides your pets with unobstructed views of your yard and blends seamlessly with the surrounding door. Low-E glass has a slight greenish tint, but it provides energy efficient properties. This tempered glass reduces exposure to ultraviolet (UV) and infrared light. This can help keep your home interior feeling cooler during summer, so you can lower your energy bills.
What’s the Difference Between a French Series Dog Door and a Traditional Dog Door?
Traditional Dog Doors
Are you trying to decide between getting a PlexiDor dog door or a traditional dog door? Keep in mind that a traditional pet door tends to have a single flap made from plastic or vinyl. This single flap dog door doesn’t provide energy efficiency, since it lets outdoor air get into your home. These traditional pet doors can also be noisy and uncomfortable for pets to use. The flap can swing closed suddenly, which might frighten your dogs or cats. Even with a double flap, traditional pet doors aren’t as secure and easy to use as PlexiDor dog doors.
PlexiDor French Series Dog Doors
The French Series dog doors from PlexiDor are heavy duty and come with a security plate that you can install during vacations or other times when you won’t be around. These doors can be more easily installed within your door frame compared to a traditional pet door as well. They’re also much more energy efficient and won’t let a draft into your home on cold winter days. During summer, the dual pane glass stops sunlight from heating up your home and prevents cooler air from escaping. These dog doors also operate with a gentle touch and won’t bang shut behind your pets.
How Are the French Series Dog Doors Economical?
This glass dog door usually costs more than a traditional dog door, since you’re paying for the glass insert and frame instead of a simple flap. However, these glass dog doors end up being more economical in the long run. You can do a DIY door installation instead of paying extra for a professional installer. This helps you save money on getting your dog door set up and ready to use. Keep in mind that these door inserts and frames come with putty, so you don’t have to purchase that on your own.
You’ll also save money over time with the warranties that these doors include. You’ll have a 5-year warranty on the door frame and glass and a 10-year warranty on the dog door. If you have any problems with these products, you can save on the cost of repairs with this warranty coverage. With these dog doors being so durable, you should have a low risk of having issues with them or needing any damage repaired.
The energy efficient features of PlexiDor dog doors lead to energy savings for your home. You’ll have lower heating bills in winter and lower cooling bills in summer. These doors keep hot and cold outdoor air from getting in, so your air conditioning and heating don’t have to run as much. This can lead to significant energy bill savings over time, especially during the hottest parts of summer.
