Short Video Trailer Previewing the proper framing technique required to install our pet door into a wall. duration 1:40
Freedom Pet Pass wall mount pet doors install into a wall like a window or door. Simply apply a cross member and apply additional blocking inside of the wall cavity to provide support for the pet door. The amount of blocking required depends on the size of the pet door and how high the pet door is installed into the wall.
Seal the pet door frame to the exterior of the wall using a high quality seal and screw the pet door frame to the blocking. Trim the interior and exterior of home to match the existing decor for a fantastic custom look.
