The Three Installation Types for Petway Dog Doors

A Petway dog door makes it easy for your pet to go in and out of your home. You have the dog door installed, and then your pet can go from your home to your backyard and back in again as they wish. While you may know how a pet door works, you may not know that there are different installation types for dog doors and what the key differences are among the different types of dog doors. Here are three installation types for dog doors and how they each differ from each other. 

Door Installations

Dog doors that are designed to be installed on a door typically vary slightly based on the material the door is made from. For example, you may find that a dog door that is being installed on a wood door is slightly different than one that is being installed on a glass door or a metal door. Dog doors designed to be installed on a door often feature brackets to fit within the hole in the door, a frame to ensure the dog door does not slip and a plastic or acrylic panel that lifts up or down as the dog wants in and out. 

Security Screen Installations

Some people prefer to install a dog door on their security screen. Dog doors that are designed to be installed on a security screen are generally very thin in depth. This helps to ensure that they fit within the screen and still sit flush against the door when the door opens or closes. Most security screen dog doors are also designed to work based on the type of material your security screen is composed of. 

Wall Installations

The last place you can install a dog door is through the wall. Most dog doors installed in a wall are installed right next to the door that leads in or out of your home. A dog door that is designed to be installed through a wall is generally very thick. In fact, most feature a tunnel that the pet walks through. This helps to create the distance needed for your dog to enter or exit through the door and provides insulation between the dog door and outdoor elements 

When you are looking to purchase a Petway dog door, it is important to select the right installation types for where you are placing the dog door. This helps to ensure that the door works how it is designed to and lasts as it should. Learning about the different installation types and how they vary from each other can help you select the right installation type for you and your pets’ needs.
