Your Pivot Door Inc. aluminum pivot door is the only Eco-friendly guaranteed warp-free metal pivot door that can be guaranteed for 50 years.

Our aluminum pivot doors are built by hand in our factory in Washington State in the pristine Pacific Northwest of the Unites States of America using a process focused on Eco-friendly metal manufacturing methods which preserve the environment as an alternative to traditional metal working which creates a toxic impact on the environment as well as not an efficient use of energy expended in the process.

How can our aluminum pivot door be stronger than steel?

Our aluminum pivot doors are manufactured utilizing a patented product and manufacturing process that is based on a composite insulated torsion box hybrid which outperforms any other lightweight material in terms of strength, deflection, shear strength and resistance to warp. No more having to worry about door failure due to warp, bending, twisting, compromising door seals and or locking mechanisms.

How strong is our aluminum pivot door?

Our patented core is the heart and soul of your aluminum pivot door that exceeds strengths of 660 PSI, which is many times stronger than the 10 to 110 PSI found in traditional aerospace designs. That’s why you find our aluminum pivot doors anywhere from beneath the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between. Nothing else compares in terms of Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength and sustainability.

Our modern aluminum pivot door is the most cost effective among other modern aluminum doors available due to their high precision (+/- .006 inch) and high performance (dead flat, straight and true, guaranteed) while also saving on heavy duty hardware required by heavier modern aluminum doors.

The last thing your client wants is your aluminum double doors or even your aluminum swing door to fail, whether the application is industrial, commercial or even residential aluminum front doors for homes.

Commercial applications include aluminum storefront doors that are lightweight in comparison to other solid core aluminum pivot doors and have excellent strength to weight ratio that makes all the difference in a modern aluminum storefront.

Having warp-free exterior aluminum doors that are lightweight, very strong and can withstand the test of time with little or no maintenance issues is extremely beneficial to the most discriminating commercial enterprises.

Though our expertise is in large oversize aluminum pivot doors of extreme size, we help to provide the most high precision, high performance Eco-friendly lightweight, high strength aluminum door blanks to door companies, manufacturers, contractors and millworks.

So whether you’re looking for the perfect aluminum storefront doors, aluminum French doors, exterior aluminum doors, flush aluminum doors or aluminum entrance doors, your friends at Pivot Door Inc. has the aluminum technology enabling you to deliver the best results to your clients that can be backed by our 50 year warp-free and full structure guarantee.

Aluminum Pivot Doors

large aluminum pivot doors metal pivot doors lightweight stronger than steelIn terms of metal door popularity, aluminum pivot doors are at the top of the list because they are naturally corrosive resistant and easily treated to meet any specifications. When weigh is an issue, aluminum pivot doors can weigh less than steel pivot doors, though all Pivot Door Inc metal pivot doors are lightweight.

Normally, aluminum pivot doors do not possess much strength or insulation (R1 or R2) but thanks to our patented core inside, our aluminum pivot doors have extreme strength core (660 PSI) and insulation (R3.5 to R6.5).

Aluminum pivot doors are easily treated and customizable following installation, so if the appearance of the project changes, the appearance of the aluminum pivot door can be altered to match the rest of the project as necessary.

Cold Rolled Steel Pivot Doors

Next up are cold rolled steel pivot doors which are a more precise match for the high precision composite core (+/- .006 in. tolerances) when high precision is a necessary component of your resulting steel door. Cold rolled steel pivot doors are generally large, impressive features in commercial and industrial applications.

 

Galvanized Steel Pivot Doors

Galvanized steel pivot doors are stronger than aluminum but treated with zinc for corrosion resistance. For this reason architects and designers might specify galvanized steel over aluminum especially if the metal pivot door in question is oversized or larger than a traditional pivot door.

Architects and designers specify galvanized steel pivot doors in industrial, commercial and residential applications due to the sustainability of galvanized (zinc treated) steel’s durability over time, with relatively low entry cost, making is fiscally prudent.

Copper Pivot Doors

Hugely popular in ancient Egypt and throughout the Middle Ages, copper is now making a comeback among the architectural metals used in modern pivot doors. Copper pivot doors are growing in popularity among the common array of metal pivot doors.

The copper pivot door is highly resistant to corrosion and so is a striking ornamental feature when used as an exterior metal pivot door. Patterned and distressed finishes make their appearance amongst the landscape of copper pivot door appearances. In some cases the design calls for an external finish (such as urethane) to preserve the freshly installed appearance of the copper pivot door over time, requiring regular maintenance to maintain the original copper appearance.

Also noted that brass pivot doors are also on the rise but are counted as copper as it is a combination of copper and zinc.

Hot Rolled Steel Pivot Doors

The newest growth market in metal pivot doors is the hot rolled steel pivot door. Hot rolled steel pivot doors feature clearly identifiable heat signatures at cutoff points which are adapted into the overall appearance of the pivot door for that industrialized futuristic design look. Otherwise, the heat signatures are covered by surface coating and finishing.

Hot rolled steel doors are commonly larger in size overall than their cold rolled steel shirt-tailed cousins.
