Pivot Doors

Sleek and Modern

Pivot Doors are connected at the top and bottom of the door with a pivot box instead of traditional hinges for a contemporary look. Combine your door style with door glass, stain or paint finish, plus hardware and accessories to obtain security, energy efficiency, and a beautiful customized look to reflect your personal style.

Materials Make the Difference

Pivot Door

Aesthetics and Performance

Complement Your Style

The perfect look for your home can be achieved with traditional materials such as wood, or more modern materials like fiberglass, steel, aluminum, and metal. Fiberglass and steel can be made to look like wood and offer durability, security, and maintenance-free entry doors.


There are many combinations of glass and styles to fit any home. Select from Decorative glass, Art glass, Clear and Privacy glass as well as Simulated Divided Lites, Grid styles and Internal Blinds.

Paints and Stains

Wood, fiberglass, and metal doors can be painted or stained for a smooth finish or a wood look that is sure to please. A variety of stain and glazed finishes are typically hand-applied by professional craftsmen, then oven-cured for maximum beauty. Paint finishes are factory applied for a long-lasting, durable finish.

The Anatomy of a Pivot Door

Knowing the Lingo

The first step in any new construction or replacement door project is knowing how a door is constructed and the industry’s terminology.

Threshold covers the entry door sill and provides protection against the elements. The threshold directs water flow out of your home by adding a slight slope towards the outside.

Bulb and Blade Sweep form a seal between the base of your door slab and the threshold, virtually eliminating drafts and keeping your home comfortable year-round.

Weatherstripping helps seal the gaps between a door slab and its frame, keeping out moisture, wind and dirt.

Embossing is the raised or depressed design in the surface of your door which contributes to the overall style of your door.

Skin is the outer layer of the door slab. Fiberglass and steel door skins are available in a variety of textured and smooth options to give a wood or more modern look.

Glass styles and combinations fit in many doors to produce a unique and custom look.

Glass trim surrounds the glass. High-performance, heat-resistant window trim won’t warp, crack or pull away from the door, even in sunny or higher temperatures.

Door frame is the support around the sides and top of a doorway.

Hardware includes different types of knobs, levers and locking systems that provide basic function, security, and style.

Strike plate is located on the door jamb and provides extra security where the door latches, preventing unwanted forced entry.

Hinge is a piece of hardware that allows the door slab to open and shut. The hinge color typically matches the door hardware.

Casing is a type of trim designed to hide the gap between the door frame and the wall. Casings come in a variety of styles and finishes.
