Doors/Entry Systems

Sliding Threshold

Introduced at IBS earlier this year, PlyGem multi-panel and multi-slide patio doors achieve dramatic openings that seamlessly transition between the indoors and outdoors. MaxView, EuroSeries and 4880 Series doors push the boundaries of affordable luxury and advanced fenestration performance with bigger, stronger and more flexible glass walls.


It's in the Ergonomics

Allegion, a leading provider of security products and solutions, announced they will launch a line of ergonomic levers that were designed with Gensler, a prominent global architecture, design and planning firm. The levers are part of the Schlage M Collection and are well suited for healthcare facilities, high-end office spaces and senior living facilities. The levers are designed to reduce discomfort and make operation more comfortable for the hands and wrist.

Compatible with a wide range of locking and mounting hardware, the product is ideal for upgrading existing entrances. With a center-glazed 2 in. × 4.5 in. thermal frame, the system accommodates 1-in. insulating glass units.

Visitors to the stadium on the second-story plaza can look through the bifold glass doors to the city outside. The Sacramento Kings doors are glazed with small fritted glass and low-E safety laminated gray glass non-reflective panels to prevent birds from flying into them. Golden1Center1: The new Sacramento Kings Golden 1 Center seats 17,500 in its modern arena.

Golden 1 Center Fit for Kings

With much anticipation, the Golden 1 Center officially opened during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Sept. 30, 2016, attended by NBA team owners, various political figures, current and former Kings players, as well as former Commissioner David Stern. The 17,500-seat arena will host concerts, conventions and other sporting and entertainment events. It features more luxury suites and a potential capacity of 19,000 seats. The building features five, one-of-a-kind bifold strap latch doors to be installed at the arena entrance. Working architect AECOM Architecture’s client wanted something uniquely Sacramento. The city was replacing a failing mall and needed to renew a failing district for rejuvenation


Scenic Views Provide Spiritual Growth

The Lodge, an expansion project for the Hope Church in Richmond, Va., is a multipurpose facility with a large gathering space and small break out rooms, designed primarily to support the growth of the church’s teen ministry programs, as well as to facilitate community connections. Hope Church is a place of quiet refuge, a place to belong and a place to grow. All of these details were reflected in the design of the building.

The architectural details, made with the finest materials and finishes, are appropriate for a Park Avenue home.

Bronze Makes Park Avenue Shine

There is something special when you visit 1110 Park Ave.—a new luxury, boutique condo building in New York City’s Upper East Side. The 16-story building’s façade is Indiana limestone, a recognizable calling card for distinctive properties throughout New York City and elsewhere, including the World Trade Center Towers along with Oculus and Transportation Hub, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Columbia University, J. Paul Getty Center in Los Angeles, George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas and the Art Institute of Chicago, to name a few. Inside are nine spacious, opulent residences with elegant architectural details, the finest materials, and impeccable finishes appropriate for a


Open for Learning

A 21st-century learner demands a 21st-century classroom. This was the challenge solved by Cannon Design for Booker T. Washington Elementary School, a 63,000-sq.-ft. science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) academy located in Champaign, Ill. Serving 225 students, the school is separated into three academies, each further stratified into three learning studios for each grade that share a communal gathering space. Operable glass walls would enable multiple room configurations and sizes without building additional space. “This flexibility allows teachers to gain access to shared resources and adapt space for small and large groups as well as project-based learning activities,” say

The doors have lived up to their reputation. Everyone in the development is pleased with how quickly the liftstraps raise the doors and how weathertight these attractive bifold hangar doors are. More so, the pilots like them because they can get in and out quickly.

Custom Doors Help Airport Take Off

Sandpoint Airpark is a development shooting for a somewhat unique appeal: it is an upscale residential community that caters to people who love to fl y. The northern Idaho fly-in airpark community, set between Schweitzer Ski Mountains and Lake Pend Oreille, offers a rare opportunity in aviation real estate. It serves as an exclusive prototype home for aviators and their families. The development is comprised of 44 spacious lots and 10,000 sq. ft. of community common area with a recreation center, complete with pool and barbecue area. Part of the appeal of the development is its proximity to an airfield for propeller aircraft. Owners have the option to build a hangar or a residential hangar.

Rockwood 30-in. pulls grace the doors to a private dining space at the back of Hotel Hugo’s restaurant.

Door Pulls Detail Industrial Chic

Hotel Hugo defines industrial chic. The upscale, contemporary hotel was the vision of designer and architect Marcello Pozzi and Nobutaka Ashihara, the project’s architect of record. Recently opened in SoHo, the hotel blends the neighborhood’s sophisticated atmosphere with the gritty underpinnings of New York City in a style Pozzi refers to as “a game of contrast, a juxtaposition of finishes.” Pozzi relied on seemingly minor details, like door pulls, to create Hotel Hugo’s distinct character. When it comes to tying together a space’s look and feel, Pozzi believes hardware does a lot of the heavy lifting. Since the door pull serves as each guest’s first touch point with the hotel, Pozzi wanted
