What makes our door No.1 on the market and stand out from the rest?
Security features ++: Our doors come with a colour-matched bracket that can be screwed securely and neatly in to the sliding doorframe. We also have unique and specially designed fixing points concealed within the top of the pet door. A secure installation means locks can be easily transferred on to the pet door or screen adapter.
Screen Door Adapter Package: Our doors are designed to integrate perfectly with our Screen Door Adapter – the adapter is a universal wall frame section that mounts up the side of the pet door and thus allows you to lock BOTH your screen and sliding doors to the pet door. Check out the second Youtube video above. It is a great optional extra that improves security (no gaps between pet door and sliding door, locks mount better on to the adapter than directly on to the pet door, no adjustment usually needed to your sliding door handle locking mechanism), air flow (you can open your sliding door and have breeze come through the closed flyscreen door!) and weather/insect proofing benefits.
GREAT Price and Value:Our pet doors are not a cheap or budget product- we offer the best quality on the market (10 year warranty!) but sell our doors at an affordable price because you are buying directly from the manufacturer- no middle man or retail mark ups which saves you $$$!
BIG Flap Sizes: We made our flaps as BIG as possible. Bigger flaps make it easier for ALL pets. Note other brands tend to have smaller flap dimensions. Why? Because they try to save money by using the same flaps as their normal pet doors (ie., the ones for solid timber doors, which are smaller). This saves tooling and stock holding costs. We don’t have this problem because we only make patio pet doors and thus make the flaps bigger for your pet’s benefit.
LOWEST rise- only 51mm on ALL sizes: Low rise is BEST, regardless of the pet flap size because it is easier for cats and dogs not to have to lift their legs up towards their chest to go through a hole. Some manufacturers have rises up to 20+cm high but all big dogs get old and possibly arthritic and then the tall rise will become a problem! Again, a bigger rise means other brands try to use their smaller (universal) flaps, which is not good for your pet/s. We only make patio pet doors and keep the rise low so your cat &/or dogs can love using it regardless of their age and health. Big dogs love low rises as well, especially when they get older!
Height adjustment range 199cm-211cm: Our door has a great height range, which is particularly important for customers in WA, as many doors there are made to 211cm.
FOUR colours: We have 4 colours to choose from: Primrose (cream-like), White, Black and Silver. Most of the big brands only sell silver and sometimes white. The big brands are primarily multi-national companies that try to cut costs reducing stock range and also try and sell stock for the American market here. We make doors in Australia for the colours that are most popular for people living in Australia!
ONE-PIECE frame: We use a one-piece frame because it is superior in strength and allows for all the important security and design features. Note some big brands have recently switched to a two piece door that is made from a cheap lightweight flyscreen-like frame with two panels that you will have to assemble. The reason for this shift is to save money on freight (cartons are half the size which saves freight costs) and retail space (ie smaller cartons take up less retail space which saves money). It makes good business sense but the two-piece doors are flimsy, poorly made and can not accommodate any security or design features that are of value, so we will not be going down this cost-saving path because it does not benefit our customers.
FAST Nation-wide Delivery service: We try to get your door despatched the same day you order it (if placed before 1.30pm). We put the courier charges through at cost to keep prices as low as possible. We deliver nation-wide and have many happy customers throughout Australia including those in remote and regional areas.
WARRANTY: Doors purchased from June 2012 come with a 10-year warranty (excludes normal wear and tear). Our pet doors are made from high quality parts and our frames are made to cyclone-rated sliding door frame specifications! Of the 1000s of doors we have sold too date, we are yet to have a return.
Aussie Designed and Owned:We make many of our doors in Adelaide and designed the current model over 3 years ago. Copies of our design are now arising but we will continue to make doors for pet lovers throughout the country!
Help us support the training of Guide Dogs:By buying one of our doors you are contributing towards maintaining our sponsorship for training Guide Dog puppies. The extensive (and expensive!) training program provides life-changing services to those in need of help from our four legged friends!
Why buy the Screen Door Adapter?
If any of the following features are important to you, then it is recommended to buy a Screen Door Adapter with your pet door rather than pay higher individual freight costs at a later date. The Screen Door Adapter is great of you want:
Security: Lock both your screen and sliding door to the pet door
Air flow: Get airflow in/out of your house without flies/mosquitos getting in
Superior Weather Proofing: Conceals gaps between pet & sliding door
Superior Looks: It looks like part of your sliding door, not an add-on pet door!

Is it easy to install?
The fast-fit installation literally takes seconds once the weather seals are put in the door- refer to the top video to see.
If you want to transfer your locks it takes roughly 5-minutes to install the pet door in to the sliding door frame using the custom bracket supplied. Only a drill-driver is required and basic handyman skills. The door latch/catcher can then be transferred on to the pet door so that the sliding door handle lock will continue to work (provided your latch/catcher mounts on the outside of the sliding door wall frame -most do). Some minor adjustment to the sliding door handle/catcher position is sometimes needed (e.g., putting some spacers/washers under the hub to level it with sliding door latch). A tape measure and hack saw are needed to install the Screen Door Adapter. Check out the second video above to see the adapter mounted up the side of the pet door.
How do I select the right flap size?
It is best not to guess the size of flap you will need but take a few minutes to measure your dog and then refer to the table below. Most people overestimate the size of the door that they need. The weight of the dog is also irrelevant- it is the height and width of the pet that matters when choosing the correct flap.
First: Testing the Flap Width: Measure the approximate shoulder width of your pet and refer to table.
Refer to the table below and open your sliding door to the designated width (e.g., 22cm if you think your pet suits a medium size flap) and see if your pet can pass comfortably through (food may help as a motivator).
Second: Testing the Flap Height: Measure your pet from the ground to the top of their shoulder blades.
Ideally your pet’s shoulder height should be 1-2cm shorter than the top of the flap. Then select the right size flap/door size from the table below. For instance, if your dog is approximately 18cm wide and has a shoulder height of 35cm, you would select the ‘Medium’ size dog door.
