Pet Sunroom

Pet Products

pet_houseAs any pet owner knows, animals, much like humans, enjoy natural daylight. Early in the morning, cats and dogs bask in the warmth emitted by the rising sun. The light provides warmth, relaxation, and lulls them to sleep.  Your pets, much like you, do not enjoy being cooped up inside.

Products Designed Specifically with Pets in Mind

A small pet sunroom can be installed off the back of your home and is a great option for the furry, four-legged friends in your life. Enclosing a porch with glass or screen walls is another way to provide animals the ability to safely enjoy nature.  One cost effective option is the creation of a screen room for your pet’s enjoyment.  Screen Rooms allow animals to enjoy warm days, breezes, and sunlight.  Special, highly durable screen is available that allows airs to flow through the space, but prevents the animals from escaping.

Pet sunrooms are made out of durable aluminum which is resistant to scratches and impacts from pets and their toys. Any sunroom size or configuration can be adapted to accommodate your pets.  The sunroom can be designed with decorative elements to match an existing home’s aesthetic or be showcased on its own.

Pets will utilize the sunroom to nap and sunbathe; tile floors are easy to clean and warm under the sunshine, creating a cozy place to nap.  Depending on the size of the sunroom, animals can exercise without becoming dirty and dragging mud into the house, making the owner’s life easier.

Your pets will also appreciate the ability to move freely, without being on a chain.  A great benefit to a pet sunroom is the safety.  Animals love to run outside, but safety is always a concern.  By keeping the animal inside a sunroom, safety concerns are avoided and the animals can still experience nature.  Predators could also be a concern if the pet is left to roam. Hawks and foxes can be concerns when small small dogs and cats are involved. Inside the sunroom, your pet is safe from predators.

The design of the sunroom is based upon the pet. For example the flooring needs to be a material that is easy to clean and durable against the pet’s nails such as tile and concrete.  Screens, operable ridge vents, and windows bring fresh air into the space. Space for water and food bowls, litter boxes, and climbing toys will enhance y2our pet’s experience further.

Pet sunrooms are not limited to cats and dogs. Birds can enjoy a sunroom for the fresh air and sunlight and fish can be raised in a pond year-round. The enclosure will assist in keeping them protected from predators and provide warmth during the winter months. Chickens can also be corralled near the pet sunroom or greenhouse as shown in the photos below.  More exotic animals like turtles or lizards can also call a pet sunroom home, as it provides ample fresh air and sunlight.

Pet Doors by Solar Innovations, Inc.

pet_doorsA popular choice among home owners is the installation of a “Doggie Door” making care easier for the human and creating independence  for our furry friends.  The constant opening and closing of the doors for cats and dogs can become a nuisance. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s solutions integrate an opening just for the pet’s use, allowing them to come and go as they please.

Solar Innovations, Inc.’s pet doors can be installed in most manufactured doors. A solid base panel is added to the bottom of the door and the door is fitted within the panel. The size of the door is dependent upon the pet that will be using it; options are available for teacup poodles and cats, all the way up to a large German Sheppard’s. With the addition of a pet door installation, pets can easily experience the outdoors without troubling their owner to constantly open the door for them

Please note: Due to the inconsistent nature of plastics and resins, Solar Innovations, Inc. is unable to custom paint match pet doors to our standard finishes.
