Patio Pacific, Inc.
America's finest pet doors for over 35 years!

Patio Pacific, Inc, was incorporated in 1976 specifically to market a new type of pet door--the 'panel' pet door for sliding glass door. This new product, the 'Instant' Pet Door, was the first of it's kind to offer an adjustable height capability which was desperately needed because sliding glass door tracks are not all the same height. It is a tribute to Lucile, founder of the company, that she had the vision to see a need in the market and the initiative to start a company from scratch to meet that need.

Sadly, the new pet door suffered from poor engineering and was quickly eclipsed by other, better, brands. Patio Pacific continued, however, by selling those as well and moved toward specializing in pet doors only.

I purchased the company in 1984 and in about 1991 introduced the Thermo Panel, the worlds first dual-pane, insulated glass panel pet door. That patio panel was followed not long after by the Quick Panel, a single pane glass product with a 'spring-load' height adjustment making installation a breeze.

Though a major improvement over anything yet on the market, the Thermo Panel installation was more difficult than our customers liked and in 2002 I introduced the Thermo Panel II which incorporated a spring loaded height adjustment similar to but better than the Quick Panel making installation quite simple. Then the Quick Panel was upgraded to the Quick Panel II by incorporating the new, improved height adjustment. These projects benefited greatly from the help of a talented local design and manufacturing engineer, Scott Ganaja, who was able to upgrade us from 'home-made' to the top tier of finely engineered and manufactured products.
