Design

The Series 980 Pivot Door can swing in or out and is available in stile widths of 4.71″ (with panels up to 63.75″ wide and 122.75″ tall). For even more design flexibility, it can be partnered with any of our window styles.

Operation

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.
