The decidedly modern way to customize an entryway.
Bold entries find unmistakable expression in the Series 7980 Pivot Door. Decidedly modern, it boasts stability through custom hardware, energy-efficient materials, and taller and wider sizes. Unequivocally design-forward, the Series 7980 is all about detail, such as a low-profile threshold that seamlessly connects the indoors to the outside. It can even be combined with any of our window styles for even more differentiation.
March 2, 2018 – Today, Western Window Systems added a hinged door and a hopper window to its Series 7000 performance family of aluminum moving glass walls and windows.
An East Bay home showcases elemental materials and large expanses of glass.
Designed, manufactured, and built by the rapidly growing firm Marmol Radziner & Associates, Western feels so fortunate to have a partnership with this cutting edge organization.
"I really love the profile of the Western Window Systems products. They make a residential product designed and built with a commercial thought.” Paul Merrill, principal, 5G Studio Collaborative
For solar control and high visibility, the Series 7980 Pivot Door comes standard with Cardinal IG’s all-climate coated or high-performance glass. Glass can be customized in a variety of types, colors, and thicknesses and includes options such as laminated glass, solar- and glare-control glass, enhanced winter performance glass, and Neat low-maintenance glass. Pre-applied Cardinal Preserve film protects glass during installation
Taller and Wider Sizes
The Series 980 Pivot Door can swing in or out and is available in stile widths from 24” to 72” and heights from 24” to 120.” For even more design flexibility, it can be partnered with any of our fixed or hinged window styles.
The Series 7980 features simulated NFRC values as low as .30 with standard low-E, dual pane glass. A signature aluminum extrusion design reduces energy consumption. Compliant with California’s rigorous Title 24 requirements.
Large glass and a minimal frame allow for more light and a modern style. For commercial use, a 5.975” frame depth is comparable to that of typical storefront systems.
Built to last, the Series 7980 Pivot Door is designed with secured corners and top and bottom rails that nest with the stiles for a permanent, rigid connection.
Custom pivot hardware supports the weight of the Series 7980 on the bottom arm, creating less stress on the frame and allowing the door to swing smoothly and effortlessly. Even massive doors weighing up to 500 pounds open with ease. An optional concealed overhead closure and secondary lock ensure the door is self-closing.
The Series 980 Pivot Door utilizes a low-profile commercial threshold that favors ease of entry over protection from the elements. Available in satin and bronze anodized finishes. Capable of meeting ADA (American Disabilities Act) requirements.
Note: The commercial threshold may be less effective at preventing water penetration than the standard threshold and therefore may not be appropriate in all climates, conditions, and exposures.
Heavy Duty Hardware
Standard hardware includes the Type C lock (our standard deadbolt lock with a 1.5” backset), top and bottom roller catches to help pull the door in tight, and a 48” tall ladder-style pull handle available in a brushed stainless or black finish.
"Western Window Systems provides well-built products, and its forward-thinking details impressed me and were well-suited to the project.”Johnny Hirsch, principal, Place
Dark bronze and satin anodized aluminum come standard with a Class 1 coating thickness for increased smoothness and durability.
Our designer colors are based on popular paint choices in the homebuilding industry and include a high-quality paint finish that conforms to a minimum rating of AAMA-2605, currently the highest rating for organic finishes.
