The right entry door can add a subtle accent or make a bold statement.

Modern Steel Doors offers a unique collection of modern pivot doors. Every single one of our pivoting doors has been designed to create a breathtaking experience.

Modern Front Doors that are handcrafted by artisans who take genuine pride in their work. Exclusive features are engineered into every aspect of every pivot front door.

Glass Doors

Our glass doors produce unobstructed large-scale views accented by high-impact door pulls. Full-view glass pivot doors may be segmented by horizontal and/or vertical applied metal trim. Segments can be designed to complement any setting. Low-profile doors are made with our ultra-thin door frame. Our ultra-thin pivot door frame creates an unrivaled 90 percent glass in a 6-feet wide by 10-feet tall doorway.

Wood Doors

Our wood doors are available in two distinct methods of construction: as metal pivot doors with wood panels or as wood doors with a supporting metal frame. Each method offers a unique combination of wood, metal, and glass. Our wood panels are never laminated and are made exclusively from quality hardwood.

Metal Doors

Our metal pivot doors provide large-scale metal cladding that is highlighted by the metal’s natural beauty. Modern doesn’t have to be cold and synthetic. Modern can be organic and sophisticated. Your home entry will be like no other with our exclusive organic metal finishes and hand-sculpted pivoting door hardware.

Glass & Metal Doors

Glass and metal work together harmoniously to create each Modern Steel Door. Choose your favorite pivot door design and then tailor the door to fit your home’s entrance with our proprietary hardware, glass, finish, cladding, and other accents. Your one-of-a-kind glass pivot front door will make your home entry remarkable and memorable. Wood can be used with many of these extra large front door designs.

Transitional Doors

Our transitional pivot front doors are embellished with ironwork and will dress up your home entry. Transitional doors are available with ornate scrollwork or linear design themes. The unique pivoting door action will redefine the swing action commonly used with these door designs.

Builder's Series Doors

Staying within budget can be challenging. Sometimes the door we want costs more than we can pay. We understand. Our Builder's Line of custom front doors offers the same extra large front door with a money-saving door jamb. The price reduction can put the door of your dreams within your budget.

What is a pivot door? How do they work?

Pivot Door[piv-uh t]  [dawr]

  1. A door that rotates about an axis that is nonadjacent to its doorjamb. The nonadjacent axis placement creates a space on either side of a pivoting door and its doorjamb. The active side of a pivot door moves in an opposing direction to the inactive side as the pivot door is operated. The dual spaces and opposing movements of a pivot door create a unique experience in contrast to the single space and single directional movement of a conventional door.
  2. A door that transfers its weight directly downward. Pivot doors are suspended via a hinge placed under the door and a hinge placed on top of the door. The hinge under the door transfers the door’s weight directly downward. The hinge on top of the door maintains the door’s alignment by subduing the shear force. Both hinges must be capable of mitigating the respective forces for ease of use.
    • Conventionally hinged doors indirectly transfer their weight through the doorjamb. The indirect transfer is accomplished through pushing and pulling on the doorjamb. The stress of pushing and pulling causes misalignment and reduces the size and weight capacity of conventionally hinged doors.

Active & Inactive Spaces Explained with Pivot Door Diagram

Active Space[ak-tiv]  [speys]

  1. The passage area of a pivot door. The passage area is functional and wider than the inactive space.

Inactive Space[in-ak-tiv]  [speys]

  1. The non-passage area of a pivot door. The non-passage area is aesthetic and narrower than the active space.

What does all of this mean to me?

  1. You can have a really big front door, two to three times bigger than a regular door.
  2. You can have an entrance door that creates a show as it operates.
  3. Your front door can transcend all other doors and become an unforgettable experience.

How do our clients benefit from our experience?

  1. Modern Steel Doors manufactures its own pivot door hinges in order to create a turnkey pivot door that is ready to use. This means no assembly, no concrete cutting, and no misalignment. This exclusive feature is unavailable anywhere else.
  2. Modern Steel Doors manufactures and integrates its own proprietary components. This means that your pivot door threshold is built to your exact specifications. It matches identically in finish and it’s built into your pivot door jamb. This means that your weatherstripping has been designed specifically to seal, operate, and improve your pivoting door experience. This exclusive feature is unavailable anywhere else—it was built from the ground up by MSD.
  3. Modern Steel Doors creates hardware that has been designed and sculpted by the hands of an artist. We discovered that a pivot door is really a large canvas just asking for a focal point. Something special. Something rare. Something that will give your modern pivot door a unique identity. By using our hand sculpted hardware on our exclusive pivoting doors, you will create an entrance that will eclipse regular doors.
