Ideal VIP Vinyl Insulated Panel Patio Pet Door

Dual Pane | Low-E Glass | Insulated Pet Flap | Permanent Install Type

VIP Large Pet OpeningVinyl Insulated patio Pet DoorVIP Medium Pet Opening

Ideal VIP (Vinyl Insulated Panel) is a dual pane glass insert that uses the Ideal UltraFlex Pet door.

Ideal Pet Products has developed the VIP Patio Insert for customers with vinyl sliding doors. This energy efficient vinyl frame is made with particular attention to detail in style and performance. The insert has double paned "Low-E" glass and a newly designed durable, insulated UltraFlex flap. This flap is made of durable GE Lexan segments that allow for any pet to use, while giving you a superior pet opening seal. The durable flap is "chew-proof" and has a reputation of never having to be replaced. A slide in locking panel is also included to secure the pet opening.

The overall frame of these units is made with vinyl and is thicker than any other patio pet door on the you a closer match when your sliding door meets with the unit. Another great improvement is the ability to lock your sliding door directly to the VIP Patio Insert! (Fits most existing locks). All other patio inserts use auxiliary locking systems to secure the sliding door.

These inserts come in variety of height ranges for nearly every size of sliding door. The VIP is designed to be installed "semi-permanently". The latches for fastening the unit into place are hidden from view, so you do not have any visible screws or holes to detract from the aesthetics of your sliding doors.
The VIP is most certainly a higher-end patio insert, requiring slightly more involvement with installing than traditional patio inserts.

Note: Currently there are no alternative or 'Custom Rise' options on the VIP Panels. Ideal Pet Products may offer these in the future.

Note: There is a 20% restocking fee for all VIP returns

The bottom section of the VIP is designed to straddle the center guide rail that is most often found in the channel on the floor. (This is the groove that the your sliding door follows).

The VIP will fit center guide rails that are 3/4" wide or less. The VIP will fit 99% of the tracks out on the market, but you will want to make sure that the center guide rail is not wider than 3/4".

The overall thickness of the VIP unit is 1 1/2" in width. These will closely match the thickness of the frame on your sliding door. The VIP is equipped with hardware allowing you to LOCK your slider to the VIP, (99% of the time). Otherwise a brace-bar is recommend.
