About recessed doors

An exposed sliding glass door frame is visible and exposed in the interior and exterior wall. You can see the track the door slides into. A recessed frame is flush with or barely visible in the interior or exterior wall. You can’t see the track the door slides into. If you have a recessed door, you will need a Patio Panel Kit (not included) to install your pet door.

Minor design change needed for recessed application, 5/12/14
Important. Before you purchase this door, check to see if you have a recessed application. If you do, call Customer Support before your purchase or installation. I've called their Customer Support and they are very helpful.

Without a minor design change, this door will not fit perfectly flush with the sliding glass door on recessed applications. Also, the door latch won't close properly. The amount of difference may not be acceptable to some.

Design changes are needed for the patio panel top height adjuster and the lower portion of the patio panel frame nearest the sliding glass door. These two areas need a recess for the recess door brackets. With these two modifications, the patio panel would fit flush with the sliding glass door. The brackets for the recess installation are too long for a bottom center install even on a medium door. The instruction video states large door only.

The installation videos on the web site are very well done and helpful.

In conclusion, I and my dog are pleased with this door. I have experienced no issues as expressed in prior reviews.

Very good for moderate weather., 4/18/14
I certainly would not recommend this product for use in severe winter weather , but in moderate weather like we have here in Portland most of the yeat, it performed very well.

Do Not Buy This Door, 2/4/14
I purchased this doggy door from Pet Smart for $200.00. I exchanged it twice because the sides of the flap did not seal properly. By the 3rd one I didn't want to hassle anymore and had to have the door so kept it.

I also purchased 2 replacement flaps, thinking there was something wrong with the flap. I'm stupid but persistent! I'm no engineer but the problem seems to be the way the flap attaches to the door which causes the flap to bow out on the sides, allowing cold air to stream in - and believe me it is a breeze.

Don't bother buying this door. Spend the $400-$500 and get a good door with dual pane glass and a flap that actually works.

PETSAFE RESPONSE: We apologize that the Freedom™ Patio Panel has failed to meet your expectations. To give your single flap pet door better wind resistance, you can add an extra flap to your door. Dual flaps are heavier and less likely to blow open in strong winds. This door also has a 1 year limited warranty. If you would like to discuss this issue further, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-732-2677 so that we may help find a solution.
