Front Doors that Pivot

Pivoting front entry doors have revolutionized contemporary design by eliminating conventional hinges.  Pivot doors are hung on a set of pins that make the door appear to float in the opening.  We use premium grade pivot hardware for smooth motion, fingertip operation. Virtually any of our door designs can be hung as a pivot door.

 

        The wood in these doors comes from
         well managed forests, independently
          certified in accordance with the rules
       
    of the Forest Stewardship Council.

About our pivot doors:
We build one of the most complete and easy to install pivot door systems.   
Pivot door installation guide.

Unlike most pivot door companies, we ship our pivot frame unit fully prepped and assembled, but with the actual door out of the frame for ease of handling.  Our door unit weather seal is extremely well thought out.  The bottom of the door receives a sweep system similar to our standard doors, but the seal is cut and fit to accommodate our bottom pivot.  Also, long the pivot side and across the top of the door, we install double t-slotted silicone bulb weather strip which is of the highest commercial grade product on the market.  This t-slot product is a perimeter sealing that works in conjunction with the jamb applied weather strip we supply.  Pivot doors, cannot have a full jamb bump stop compression weather strip around the door like a typical swinging door.  Because the door must pivot,  a continuous bump stop seal is impossible.   But our double t-slot application fills the voids that otherwise might be problematic in pivot doors designed by others.

We use oversized pivot hardware. Generally we use a product that is designed for doors up to twice the weight of the actual door we supply. We mortise in the top pivot, burying it below the top surface of the door. The pivot block is then plugged with a dutchman block and, we are able to fully install the t-slot weather strip across the door. 

Every aspect of our pivot door systems are designed to give the tightest seal possible while offering minimal installation hassles and long life performance.

 

 

 

  Rough opening dimensions:
  Take any door size add 3-1/4 to the width and 4 to the height and that is your rough opening for a pivot door.

  Expect a 2-1/4 thick pivot door to weigh about 6 lbs per square foot. We have actually weight them!


Any of our door offerings can be made to pivot.
