Customise your Petflap to make it exactly what you need!

Long tunnels

Or as we call it here, extended trunking. These are usually to go through a thick door or wall. We get lots of orders for extended trunking from people building low-energy homes.

Extended trunking needs to be fitted when the Petflap is built. Please get in touch with enquiries.

Standard trunking is 70mm long. We can build you extended trunking from 8cm up to 61cm. For trunking over 20cm long the Petflap will need an inset flap at the house end.

If you need shortened trunking we can do that too.

Recyclable

Making a single colour plastic product is the most environmentally positive thing we can do. Making that colour black is the best for production recycling and end of life recycling. However since we switched to black we’ve been asked constantly if we do white, so white is available too. We are currently introducing a wood-based element (weatherproof for 75 years) to reduce the amount of plastic we’re using.

Painting

The surfaces on the Petflap are built from the same plastics many cars use on external surfaces. This means it takes acrylic spray paint very well. The outer faces can be sprayed any colour scheme to suit your door, your pet, your vibe!

The skinny

Keep the window film in place when you spray.

We suggest painting the external face rather than the internal one. It’s easier to do.

We can’t accept returns due to a bad paint job. Our guarantees of course cover our own workmanship and though we love our customers, we can’t yet cover yours.

Protect the Pivot! (and the lock… windows, and the foam seal). The door depends on its pivot. We make it from stainless steel with brass and it should be maintenance free. It won’t like your paint gumming up the works.

Plastikote (or plastic acrylic spray paint) is ideal. There’s a huge range of colours and finishes.

Painting won’t stop the Petflap being recycled. It’s been recycled once and can be recycled again. Acrylic paint is recyclable, so do the planet a favour and use that.
