Design and Operation

Western Window Systems’ Series 7980 Pivot Door delivers easy operation and a clean, modern design. A 5.875″ frame depth is comparable to that of typical storefront systems and allows for more light. Custom pivot-hardware supports the weight with the bottom arm, creating less stress on the frame and allowing the door to swing effortlessly. An optional concealed overhead closure and secondary lock ensure the door is self-closing. Optional 10″ bottom rail.
