Pivot Door Inc’s patented pivot door solution resolves these issues, guaranteed.

Pivoting Front Doors

Pivoting front doors by far pack the most powerful punch in making a lasting first impression but they also present problems associated with failure of the pivoting front door due to exposure. One side of the pivot door faces the structure’s interior which is normally climate controlled while the other side of the door faces the exterior and can be exposed one hundred percent to weather condition.

Pivot Entrance Doors

Pivot entrance door present architects and designers with challenges which must be borne over the life of the door by the end users. Since a pivot front door has one side facing the structure’s interior while the other side faces the weather, the outside elements can cause problems associated with maintaining dimensional stability and potential causing the door seal or security devices to fail periodically. This can be a pivot door maintenance catastrophe.

Wooden Pivot Doors

Up ‘til now, wooden pivot doors have presented pivot door designers and pivot door engineers with a variety of challenges when it comes to incorporating natural wood grains in the pivot entrance door’s design. Why? Because of the nature of the wood’s natural characteristics, wood is one of the heavier building products to work with. Wood grain is so elegant, makes a beautiful pivot front door provides little insulation (R1) while the wood breathes and moves with the slightest change in climate conditions.

The warping of wooden pivot doors, which is magnified mny times if you are building a large pivot door, leaves one wondering if you shouldn’t just abandon the idea of having a wood pivot front door in the first place?

Steel Pivot Door

You could build a weather resistant pivot front door, even a large pivot door out of steel. While this is an excellent way to build a door that will not warp, a steel pivot door is very heavy in weight and if operated regularly will potentially add stress to the structure and hardware causing other expensive problems down the road. That is, unless your steel pivot door is a Pivot Door Inc. steel pivot door, because your heavy steel doors could be a lightweight pivot door which is stronger than steel pound for pound, and the same goes for aluminum pivot doors, or any type of metal pivot doors.

Top-rated Pivot Door

When you’re in search of the best pivot door made in the USA, you will be seeking out the top-rated pivot door and we believe you can rest assured that you can have everything you want in a pivot door and more if you have our patented core inside your pivot door.

Every Pivot Door Inc pivot door has patented Sing Core inside enabling us to guarantee your pivot door will not warp, bend twist or otherwise fail for 50 years, including a full structural warranty. A 50-year guarantee on a pivot door can’t be found anywhere else, especially if it is a pivot front door.

What are the characteristics of the top-rated pivot door?

Top-rated Pivot Door

The top-rated pivot door is

1. Insulated
2. Lightweight
3. High-strength
4. High-precision
5. Weatherproof
6. Solid as a rock
7. Warp-free
8. Guaranteed

All pivot doors are rated on a scale of 1 to 10 on all these characteristics which enables one pivot door to be measured against any other pivot door side-by-side on an individual basis. The door with the highest marks in all categories emerges as unequivocally the top-rated door. Let’s take a closer look at these categories:

Insulated Pivot Door

If a pivot door is not insulated in some way, it will have the default insulation factor of the material the doors is made of. For instance, if a door is made of wood, it will have an insulation R-value of R1 per inch (pivot door thickness). Advantages of added insulation include increased climate control, separation between adjoining environments, and sound dampening characteristics.

Lightweight Pivot Door

Left to the weight of the raw materials used to manufacture the pivot door, a large wood exterior pivot door could weigh hundreds (if not thousands) of pounds, depending on the size and thickness of the pivot door evaluated. Also, since the weight of the door determines the pivot door hardware to be used for the door, a heavy pivot door will require heavy duty pivot door hardware which could cost many times more than the pivot door, whereas a lightweight door will require less expensive pivot hinges.

High-strength Pivot Door

You don’t want a weak pivot door. In many cases you will trade one trait for another when it comes to deciding between lightweight and high strength. In most cases, when you reduce the weight of the door, you end up with a door that is not as strong. The only way known to have lightweight without having to sacrifice strength is to build with your pivot door with a solid composite reinforced vertical grain torsion box core, which provides you with superior strength (660+ PSI) while still remaining lightweight.

High-precision Pivot Door

Our pivot doors are much more precision based on the over-the-top consistency and accuracy of the patented solid composite core inside. This high precision material espouses the highest tolerances (+/- .006 in.) of any building material, and due to our manual artistry of assembling and pressing all of the components in an earth-friendly we can maintain this consistency over the surface of the material without compromising precision (which may be problematic and toxic, such as welding).

Weatherproof Pivot Door

If your pivot door is an interior pivot door not exposed to the elements, then being weatherproof might not be a consideration. Since the most popular pivot door is a pivot front door then having access to pivot entry doors which are designed to stave off the exposure to weather as in the application of exterior pivot doors, then having a weatherproof pivot door is of huge importance.

Solid as a Rock

Certainly, pivot doors can be made lighter in weight by using lightweight corrugated, honeycomb, tubes, or other materials in the pivot door’s interior (or left completely vacant, as in hollow core pivot doors) to reduce weight and camouflaged by the exterior door skins, but this will not maintain structural integrity and/or high precision of the door. This is why the top-rated pivot door must possess a solid substrate, to protect structural integrity of the door which can be operated regularly over a long period of time. Plus, solid core doors provide additional safety and security.

Warp-free Pivot Door

It is very difficult to make a pivot door free from warp, especially if it is made of a natural wood fiber, or is operated as exterior pivot doors, pivot entrance doors, or as a pivot front door. Exposure to weather, or changes in moisture or barometric pressure, or any other number of factors will cause a pivot door to warp. A warping pivot door will compromise the door seal and left to itself without regular maintenance may render the pivot door as inoperable.

Pivot Door Guarantee

Pivot door guarantees are not hard to come by, most manufactures guarantee their standard-sized pivot doors for one year. But if you have a large pivot door, finding a good warranty or guarantee may not be within reach or possible. In most cases, the better the guarantee, the better the door. A good guarantee can help reduce your exposure following making a large investment in your large pivot door. A good guarantee is a characteristic of a top-rated pivot door.

So, let’s take a look at your pivot door by Pivot Door Inc, to see how it rates as a top-rated pivot door:

No. Characteristic Rating
1. Insulated 8
2. Lightweight 9
3. High-strength 9
4. High-precision 9
5. Weatherproof 9
6. Solid as a rock 9
7. Warp-free 10
8. Guaranteed 10

We think you will agree Pivot Door Inc. pivoting doors are the best top-rated pivot doors made in the USA, and the world.

Pivot Front Door

First off, you’re going to want a pivot front door that will not fail you and will serve your faithfully over a long period of time with little or no headaches or constant maintenance. This can be tricky because your pivot front door has some challenges, like potential for door warping due to one side being exposed to the exterior and the other to the interior.

Your pivot front door should be lightweight without compromising the overall strength of the pivot door, and if you can have some insulation value, all the better for climate control and sound deadening.

Any way you look at them, interior pivot doors are a classy addition to any interior design.

The Best Pivot Door Systems

The best pivot door systems require a team effort to deliver the best pivot door results.

Large Pivot Doors

In the most high end homes in the United States and around the world, the front doors are the first thing that anyone sees when they approach the main structure on the property. Unique doors make a significant first impression and large doors leave a lasting impression, and large pivot doors are the most impressively powerful of all front doors, which everyone remembers.

16 ft tall warp-free wooden pivot door

While little else can leave as lasting an impression as a large pivot door, they are not as easy to create, install and maintain as one might think. They are expensive to create due to their sheer size, which also makes them extremely heavy. These heavy pivot doors are expensive to transport to the job site, require heavy equipment to manipulate throughout the installation process and require shoring up the structure and expensive heavy duty hardware.

After all that expense, engineering, craftsmanship and hard work, the door’s magnificence is apparent as everyone steps back to review their handiwork. The culmination of all this team’s efforts is realized in the most beautiful large pivot door in all its glory. Then what?

Not long after the door’s installation, you realize why this large pivot door was exempt from the rest of the job which carried a one-year warranty. As one of the biggest door reps in the country has stated,

“All large doors warp.”

Door warp is the bane of all companies who dare take on the task of building large pivot doors because when they warp, this creates a significant problem and continual frustration for the client and the door support services which service the large pivot door over time.

 

Large warp-free teak wooden door

Yet, there are some pivot door companies who specialize in large pivot doors who are able to guarantee their pivot doors will not warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years, including a 50-year full structure warranty. Now, that’s impressive!

How can a custom high-end door manufacturer guarantee their large pivot doors will not warp for 50 years? The secret is… their oversized large pivot doors are all individually guaranteed because they have professional

“Sing Core inside.”

Sing Core is the secret ingredient in large high-end doors. The secret is based on inventor Peter Sing’s patented reinforced vertical grain torsion box core which provides the most Eco-friendly dimensionally stable solid composite core material for these guaranteed large modern pivot doors.

Weatherproof large exterior warp-free wooden pivot door

Even large exterior pivot doors made of wood (which are the most prone to warp due to the natural state of the wood itself) can be made to be warp-free and much lighter in weight than other heavier large pivot door core materials.

The unique characteristics of Sing Core include Eco-friendly (the best use of natural resources, made with little energy and waste), lightweight (a fraction of other solid core doors, reducing transportation costs and small carbon footprint), high strength (660+ PSI, stronger than steel pound for pound), high precision (+/- .006 in. tolerance), and fully insulated for sound dampening and climate control.

If your large pivot front door has Sing Core inside, you can design and create an even larger and more impressive front door than you ever thought possible. The taller, wider and thicker the pivot doors the better, plus you can save time and money throughout the building process and hugely in maintenance over time. You can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a worry-free piece of articulating art for 50 years.

Finishing large hot rolled steel pivot door

These high end pivot door are proudly manufactured by the biggest and best custom door manufacturers and millworks in the land as they pass on the professional 50-year guarantee on to their clients following installation, while everyone sleeps so much better than they did prior to using Sing’s revolutionary building material.

Full length large pivot doors span the width of the door opening and can reach fully from the floor to the ceiling of any structure. Sing Pivot doors can easily reach 20 ft tall or more.

Any Surface Material

Sing’s patented core material can host any available flat building material and still remain lightweight, high strength, true flat and straight (out-performing any AWI standard for door warp). This means you can build any type of door with any skin material, such as any available wood species, aluminum, brass, cold rolled steel, copper, diamond plate steel, fiberglass/FRP, galvanized steel, hot rolled steel, Kevlar, LVL, MDF, stainless steel, and so much more.

If you’re looking for the best in large pivot doors, then the answer is simply to have your architect specify that your architectural pivot doors have, “Sing Core inside.” No other large door can be guaranteed warp-free and full structure warranted for 50 years.

Exterior Pivot Doors

Here at Pivot Door Inc., we help our clients achieve new heights in high performance pivot doors of all sizes (up to 50 ft.) which might be problematic for most innovative architects, designers, door companies, millworks or contractors. As a rule most pivot door are larger in size than traditional out swing or sliding doors and can also be a great deal thicker, which adds to the elegant and massive look and feel of the door.

The problems associated with large pivot doors usually appear in terms of heavy weight and failure over time due to warping, bending and twisting. Even more problematic are exterior doors in comparison to interior doors as interior doors are more likely to have equally compatible climates on either side of the door while exterior doors have one side facing more extreme elements. Any environmental variances and changes on either side of the door will cause door warp and subsequent door and/or seal failure.

Exterior Pivot Doors

Steel doors are a common approach to solving the problems associated with warping exterior pivot doors, but introduce an entirely new set of problems. Necessary sacrifices will be necessary to accommodate the steel door solution to the issues associated with exterior pivot doors. For instance, solid steel doors (which are the least likely to warp) are very heavy, causing stress and strain on the structure and required extremely heavy duty pivot door hardware, which can be many times more expensive than the steel exterior pivot door itself.

Wood exterior pivot doors are the most sought after due to the natural beauty of organic wood, which leads to natural wood doors, like oak doors, the most popular wood pivot doors of all. Naturally, the nature of wood grain itself causes wood doors to warp even more, because wood doors are more sympathetic to the climate conditions on either side of the exterior pivot doors.

The expectation for entrance doors is extremely high in terms of maintaining an extraordinary appearance and nothing is more impressive or inviting than large exterior pivot doors. For the most part panel doors or aluminum doors cannot even come close to meeting the most demanding expectations for overall pivot door performance and aesthetic appeal necessary to satisfy.

Fortunately, Pivot Door Inc. has the solution for all your pivoting warped doors. We can provide architectural pivot doors built to architectural specifications featuring our patented insulation reinforced torsion box core for the highest precision composite front doors meeting or often exceeding the most stringent high performance expectations of any architect, designer or end client.

Now, you can have hot rolled steel exterior pivot doors that weigh a fraction of the weight of other solid core hot rolled steel doors, without compromising the high precision of solid steel doors. The same is true for any type exterior pivot doors including (but not limited to) aluminum pivot doors, concrete pivot doors, HPL pivot doors, Kevlar pivot doors, LVL pivot doors, metal pivot doors, stainless steel pivot doors or any species of natural warp-free wood pivot doors available. And any of these custom entry doors can be manufactured as lightweight according to architectural specifications without fear of failure for 50 years.

High precision warp free exterior pivot doors are of importance to the scientific community as well as United States military covering the spectrum from everything between the deepest recessions of the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA). Steel doors are less high precision metal doors due to imperfections associated with welding and traditional metalworking, but our patented warp-free lightweight, high strength door core is of the highest precision (+/- .006 in.) resulting in exterior pivot doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for fifty years.

Make sure your home has a pivot front door to attract the attention of anyone who comes near.

Want to make a bigger first impression?

Feature a custom oversized large pivot front door that’ll stop any first time visitor in their tracks as they take a double-take.

From modern architects designing new, impressively unique cutting edge designs to high end house flipping, a large pivot front door feature is the answer for making a huge initial impact and adding value and curb appeal to your project.

But before you specify a pivot front door for your project, there are some things you should know before you proceed, especially if you’re considering a large pivot front door.

Pivot Front Door Warp

Ask and large pivot door manufacturer or millwork about large pivot front doors and they’re likely to reply, “We won’t offer a warranty on this particular part of the project because all large pivot doors warp.” This begs the question, “Why?”

The reason pivot front doors warp is due to the environmental conditions on either side of the door. If there exists two separate climate conditions, one on the interior of the building or house, and an altogether different condition on the exterior, the door will move, bend, twist or cup according to the opposing conditions.

To mitigate the damages of pivot front door warp potential, the designers may opt for very heavy metal materials, like steel, being used inside the door in an effort to keep the pivot front door straight.

Pivot Front Door Weight

If you’re building a large pivot front door with heavy metal inside, the end result is a door that will resist warping in a front door application, but heavy pivot doors require heavy duty pivoting door hardware, which often exceeds the cost of the pivot door itself.

And heavy duty pivot door hardware is just the beginning. Because the door is so heavy, using the door, opening and closing it for access to the building our house on a regular basis causes extra stress and strain on the hardware, the frame and the supporting structure of the heavy pivot front door, increasing maintenance costs over time.

Pivot Front Door Danger

Also, the heavier the door, the greater risk of injury when opening or closing the pivot front door. Unfortunately, injuries can be suffered, including the loss of a finger or limb if caught in the door when articulation is taking place.

Pivot Front Door Solution

That’s where Pivot Door Inc. comes in.

We specialize in helping door companies and millworks design the best insulated lightweight pivot front doors that offer sound dampening and climate control characteristics for increased safety and security and can also be guaranteed not to warp, bend twist or otherwise fail for 50 years.

This creates a thin, lightweight bookcase material to use for super-strength lightweight bookcase shelves that can support the fully loaded weight of heavy books without bending, twisting or bowing the shelves.

Other, more unstable material would deteriorate or breakdown, while heavier, more sturdy material would be problematic for the pivoting bookshelf door’s operation, requiring expensive heavy duty hardware. A heavier bookshelf door could also cause more stress and strain on both the hardware and the structure requiring increased maintenance over time.
