High-Density Polyethylene Security Cover
This material is also used in marine applications as well as security and other industrial applications and is designed to stand up to the harshest weather conditions. It is environmentally stabilized for harsh sun and will not rot, swell, splinter, or delaminate when exposed to humidity or water. Its durable matte-textured surface on both sides is easy to clean and never needs refinishing. It has even passed the Federal Motor Vehicle Standard 302 fire test required for use in motor vehicles, including motorhomes. This security cover is available in opaque black, white, gray, or tan colors and is able to be locked in place with a positive action steel "pin lock".
4 colors of Hale Pet Door Security Covers
Frame Finishes on a Hale Pet Door
Frame Finishes
We use two types of finish on Hale doors, either anodized aluminum or hard coat paint. Anodizing is a type of electrolysis used to place a protective oxide coating on the metal. This produces a colored surface that cannot be rubbed off or scratched easily. Both finishes are very durable and are the very best available.
Pin Lock for Hale Pet Door Covers
Steel Pin Lock
Our positive action pin lock is attached to the frame rather than the security cover itself as in many other pet doors.  This prevents the lock from being opened from the outside.  It also prevents the lock from scratching the wall or people door when the cover is opened or closed.
Hale Pet Door Security Cover Knob
Zinc Alloy Cover Removal Knob
For ease of use in operating the cover whether top or side loading, we provide a lightweight zinc alloy knob or handle to open and close the cover.  The ergonomic design of the knob is especially useful for older people with arthritis or when the door is located in a hard to reach area.  It cradles your finger as you move the cover to and from the pet door giving you the highest level of comfort.  With its attractive satin nickel finish, the knob complements all the available frame and cover colors of Hale Pet Door (NOTE: some photos on this site still show the finger hole instead of the handle.  The handle is considered standard but the finger holes are still available where the handle would interfere with functionality.)

Raincap for Hale Pet Door Wall and Door Models
Raincaps Divert Water
Our color matched raincaps attach to the frames of our door or walls models to divert water away from the area and prevent problems before they can start. We also recommend caulking around the outside top and sides of our door or wall pet doors to prevent water intrusion.
Flashing for Hale Pet Door Wall Models
Custom Designed Flashing for Water Containment
Our flashing attachment (on applicable models) was invented by Hale Pet Door to work in conjunction with our raincaps to help prevent problems that could be caused by water intrusion. The flashing helps contain any water that might get inside the pet door and prevent it getting inside your walls.
Hale Pet Door replacement flap
PVC Vinyl Flaps
Our flaps are stronger and longer lasting than other available materials. Most Hale Pet Doors come standard with two separate flaps for maximum energy efficiency and protection from wind, unwanted animals and insects. Single flap Hale Pet Doors are also available in all models.
Strikes for Hale Pet Door Flaps
Stainless Steel Strikes
Our custom designed strikes are made of stainless steel to prevent rusting and discoloration of the flaps from the strikes.  They line up with the Alnico magnets in the door frame to provide a weather-tight seal around the flap of the pet door.
Alnico Magnets used in Hale Pet Doors
Heavy Duty Alnico Magnets
Alnico magnets are made from aluminum, nickel, cobalt, and iron. They are much stronger and longer lasting than graphite magnets. They keep the flap in place to give greater protection from wind, unwanted animals and insects.
Hale Pet Door Wall Model Tunnel
Heavy Aluminum Tunnel
All Hale Wall Model pet doors come with a heavy .040 aluminum tunnel which connects the inside frame to the outside frame.
Carpet used in Hale Pet Door Wall Models
Mold Resistant Carpet
All Hale Wall Model pet doors come with mold and mildew resistant nylon carpet that covers the sides and bottom of the tunnel between the pet door flaps.

High-Quality Glass
The glass used in Hale Pet Door Panel and Window Models is double pane insulated tempered glass standard for energy efficiency. Our single pane in glass model, and storm window replacement model all use single pane tempered glass whenever possible. Upon customer request in certain instances, we can use clear acrylic in our single pane models.
