The PlexiDor can be installed in a sliding patio door, French doors, or even a window.
The PlexiDor will not block any part of the opening. With this system the glass door or window will still work just like the factory intended.The Plexidor can be installed in the exact same thickness of glass you already have.
* Note - The PlexiDor is 45mm thick and the thickness of most double glazing is roughly half that thickness. This means that some form of frame will be required around the Plexidor to complete the installation.
** The process for installing the Plexidor into glass differs from the process to fit into wood, UPVC etc as the screws willnot penetrate the glass. Therefore anyone considering installing the Plexidor into glass is strongly advised to view the below YouTube clip. It is also strongly advised that any cutting into is only done once the installer has access to the Plexidor and can then establish how it needs to be afixed to the glass**

These conversion kits are not available in the UK but will provide a useful guide on how the PlexiDor is fitted into glass.
Glass used in doors and windows is toughened. This procedure makes it stronger than regular glass, but it also means any cutting or grinding must be done prior to the toughening process. Thus, the existing pane must be replaced.
To install a PlexiDor pet door through glass, an installer will measure the width, height, and thickness of your existing pane. The Plexidor will be mounted in the new pane, which will be installed exactly the same way as the original glass. To make things even better, the old pane can be put back if you were ever to sell your home to someone without a pet, or if you no longer require a pet door.
