A wooden door will do very well. The goal is to give you time and protect you from smoke. Most animals are very keen to dangerous conditions and are very likely to hide. Please understand we do care and will do our very best to protect all pets but our ultimate mission is to protect human life above all. We may suggest keeping pets in a bedroom with a closed door while you are sleeping also.
How about if I have cats it's hard to keep door close and it is a wooden bedroom door ?
