The popularity of large expansive sliding and bi-fold doors has increased drastically in recent years, as homeowners embrace open-plan living with a seamless transition from indoors to outside. However, until recently the choice of pet doors available to match such premium glass doors for homeowners with cats and small dogs, was minimal.
Pet-Tek UK is pleased to introduce our range of high quality pet doors which have been developed for glass doors. The sleek, minimal frames on the pet doors mean they are significantly less imposing on glass doors than traditional alternatives. Not only that, they are extremely durable and eliminate common problems such as broken flaps and locking dials.
Seamless living for pets, not just for homeowners
More and more homeowners nowadays integrate open-plan living into their homes, whether it is opening up a kitchen diner, or even a lounge kitchen diner. These connected spaces often impact on how homes are designed and lived in. For example, a large expansive kitchen diner will commonly feature a large set of glass doors, whether sliding or bi-fold. This not only gives the kitchen diner area more light but opens-up the inside into the outside, providing seamless living for the occupants.
These glass doors provide the main access point to-and-from the home to the back garden, not just for humans but for small domestic pets also, notably cats and small dogs. Traditional pet doors for glass doors are quite bulky units that are considered a bit of an eyesore for homeowners, architects, interior designers and glaziers. Their aesthetics and functionality never really met the high standards the premium glass doors warranted…until recently.
Pet-Tek UK’s range of innovative, premium pet doors have been increasingly installed on glass doors throughout the UK over recent years. More and more glaziers and installers fit Pet-Tek’s pet doors for their clients as they are guaranteed a high quality pet door that looks attractive and is extremely long-lasting.
Premium pet doors for glass doors
Popular pet door models include the G-SDD Maxi Dual Glaze Glass Fitting Cat Door and the G-DD Glass Fitting Dog Door. Both ranges are available in clear or white options, are easy to fit, feature a four-way locking system, have a smooth quiet action, and larger flap openings meaning they are more comfortable for your pets. The G-SDD has a flap size of 195 x 185mm and accommodates up to a large cat/small dog, and the G-DDC has a flap size of 300 x 270mm and accommodates up to a small or medium dog.
For sliding glass doors, it is important to measure the gap in-between the doors to ensure the doors have enough clearance for the sliding mechanism to work properly with the pet door installed (as the pet doors protrude slightly). If you would like technical advice for your sliding glass door please contact Pet-Tek and we will be happy to help out and advise the best pet door for you.

Steven King, Owner of Pet-Tek, comments, “Our range of high quality pet doors is growing increasingly popular with pet owners, glaziers, architects, interior designers, self-builders and other door professionals. For the models that fit onto glass doors such as the G-SDD and G-DD, not only do they look great with their unobtrusive, slim line frames, but they are easier, quicker and more cost-effective to fit than traditional doors as they can be fitted to round cut-outs rather than more time consuming square cut-outs.
So for homeowners it means less disruption to fit the pet door, and for the glaziers it means they can complete the installation quicker and easier, meaning they can move onto their next project sooner.”
For door professionals who design and install Pet-Tek’s pet doors onto their clients’ glass doors, they have confidence that the doors are premium quality, aesthetically pleasing and will add value to their project installation. Pet-Tek works closely with all industry professionals, whether they are installers/glaziers who require best-practice installation advice; or architects/designers who require design guidelines or product specification advice.
