Mahogany Entry Pivot Door

Pivot Door- ClosedPivot Door- Open

Grabill provided the architectural pivot door desired for this Lake Michigan residence.   With our nearly endless design possibilities, Grabill craftsmen created a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that weighed  over 600 lbs. when completed.  By using state of the art, off-set hardware, this door operates effortlessly.  This unique pivot door has no lower threshold and seals to the blue stone floor.  The seamless transition from interior to exterior is made possible by the architectural overhangs that expand over 8 feet from the structure.  The true divided lite door is constructed of premium mahogany with bronze tinted glass for privacy.  There is a matching sidelight that allows for maximum exterior light to radiate through this open floor plan.  Grabill also crafted a combination of other units for this project, including awning and casement windows, lift and slide doors, butt-glazed corner windows and a site-built lake room large expanse window.  For more information on Grabill Windows and Doors, please see our website or call us directly at 810-798-2817.
