“It’s all about the flap!” This Kennel Dog Door combines all the features of the award winning Endura Flap™ with a beefy metal frame. It is identical to the Endura Flap™ single flap version for doors, except that parts not normally needed for a kennel application have been excluded:
- The external trim frame
- Installation hardware
- Weather stripping
- Decorative hole plugs to hide the screw heads
- The locking cover assembly (kennels normally use a separate "guillotine" type locking mechanism). However, a locking cover may be added if desired
Every year, animals are harmed by rigid flaps. The typical situation is that the pet is partway out the pet door, is startled by something and jerks back suddenly. The pinching effect of a rigid flap in that case can be terrifying and cause the pet to pull back even harder.
It was for this reason that the first design requirement of the Endura Flap was that the flap be flexible and safe for any pet and for any child who should happen to crawl through!
Of course there is a trade-off here. Rigid flaps can be more chew-resistant than flexible flaps. If chewing of the flap is expected, it is best to take some preventative measures. One of the best is to mix some Habanera pepper with Vaseline; and smear this mixture on the edge of the flap. Be careful not to allow any of this mixture in the dogs eyes!
Secondly, if a guillotine door is placed on the inside of the run and the dogs are kept inside when that unit is closed, then the dog cannot get to the flap to chew it.
We suggest you read the complete story behind the Endura Flap™ and for engineers or those looking for some more technical information here is a 74-page dog door energy efficiency study showing what makes it so special.
Some additional notes:
- The Endura Flap™ Kennel door is intended to be installed in either a solid core wood door or in a wall that has already been personally framed out. If you wish to install the Endura Flap™ kennel door in a hollow core door, you'll need to frame out the hollow core door first. Alternatively, you can use a regular Endura Flap™ pet door for doors which is "self-framing" though more expensive.
- If you wish to install the Endura Flap™ Kennel Door in a wall and don't want to frame the wall yourself, you can purchase the Endura Flap™ dog door for walls in either single or double flap versions.
- It has been our experience that the Endura Flap™ seals so well that the single flap model will meet most needs even in areas that experience four seasons. However, for really extreme weather, the door mount version and the wall mount version are both available in double flap models.
- There is a significant difference between the rough cut out of the Endura Flap™ Kennel version and the regular Endura Flap™ for doors. The regular door mount cut out is larger to allow the bolts to fasten directly to the trim frame. The kennel version is smaller as we intend wood screws (not included) to be used to fasten the frame directly to the door or wall. The kennel door itself should be used as a template or use the rough cutout dimensions given below.
