Can I put a PlexiDor dog door through a wall?

This is a common question, and you most certainly can. Making a hole in the wall might be a bit more intimidating than making a hole in a door, but it looks really nice when the project is finished. 

PlexiDor has wall kits that can be used for stud, brick, block, or cement walls. The wall kit comes with an aluminum tunnel that connects the interior and exterior frames.

The bottom tunnel section is sloped to prevent water from entering. The tunnel won't rust, has no sharp edges, and is easy to keep clean.

When you see photos of the PlexiDor, the side with the lock and key goes on the inside of the house. It's easy to think that it's outside, but you don't want to go out to be able to lock the door.

inside of a door or a wall.

There are wall kits available for all size PlexiDors, from the smallest to the electronic. The doors presented on this page all have the silver frame, but they are also available in a durable, baked-on white or bronze finish.

Many worry about safety. The PlexiDor comes with lock and key, and there's a steel security plate that attaches to the frame.
