The bold, modern choice for making an entrance.
Boldly dramatic and decidedly modern, our Series 980 Pivot Door may be the most impressive way to customize your home’s entryway. Able to swing in or out, its unique distribution of weight makes creating very large openings with just a single panel not only possible, but desirable.
The massive glass on the Series 980 Pivot Door maximizes views and lets in light. Custom hardware allows it to open with ease. And because it’s aluminum, the Series 980 is low maintenance, too. Plus, we offer an array of sizes and finishes to customize your pivot door to most any type of residential or commercial project.
Because of its operation and configuration, the Series 980 Pivot Door is best suited for environments where screening is not necessary.

Large glass and a minimal frame allow for more light and a modern style. For commercial use, a 4.5” frame depth is comparable to that of typical storefront systems.
Our custom pivot hardware supports the weight of the door 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.
Built to last, our pivot doors are designed with secured corners and top and bottom rails that nest with the stiles for a permanent, rigid connection.
Climate Ready Glass
Our pivot door features dual-paned low-E glass manufactured using thermoplastic spacer (TPS) technology for better energy performance. Glass can be customized in a variety of types, colors, and thicknesses for improved privacy, protection, and thermal efficiency.
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 is not warrantied against water penetration.
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.
Configurations and Sizes
The Series 980 Pivot Door can swing in or out, and is available in stile widths of 4.71” (with panels up to 60' wide and 120' tall). For even more design flexibility, it can be partnered with any of our window styles.
