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.

Temporary Walls

Our pivot door panels can also be used as pivoting temporary walls that can separate one huge space into two separate areas, with added safety and security due to the combination of lightweight strength and insulation. By simply pivoting either large temporary walls, or multiple pivoting temporary wall panels, the space returns to its large capacity again.

Temporary walls can also utilize a combination of pivoting and sliding door hardware and then each pivot door temporary wall panel can be slid to the side, like stacked doors for more unencumbered full access to the space.

Bookshelf Door

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.

Warp-free Wood Pivot Doors

Pivot doors are the modern front door in contemporary architecture and design today.

Our patented large pivot door technology enables us to make large wood pivot doors that will not warp, bend or twist which are also lightweight (a fraction of other solid pivot doors), high strength (stronger than steel pound for pound), fully insulated (for climate control and sound deadening qualities).

Custom Wood Entry Doors

We specialize in making custom wood entry doors specifically designed for modern off set pivot hardware that are much larger than the standard pivot door system. Working with the best pivot door manufacturers in the United States, we understand the three biggest complaints of large pivot door companies.

Biggest Problems with Large Wood Pivot Doors are:

Wood Pivot Doors Warp

Simply due to the intrinsic nature of the wood grain itself, natural wood will tend to warp, bend and twist. This is the main concern for pivot door manufacturers and clients, especially in terms of pivot doors that are taller than 7 ft and wider than 3.5 ft. Since the luxury entry door opening the modern pivot doors and hardware is 10 ft tall, or more. This is when door warp is a major issue as the pivot door’s seal and latching/locking mechanisms are compromised.

Large Wood Pivot Doors Are Heavy

Solid slabs of wood are heavy by themselves, but due to the warping, many pivot door companies are able to mitigate the warping by reinforcing the wood pivot doors with steel reinforcements. Steel is a good option because it doesn’t warp and does help hold the pivot door straight, but it’s heavier than wood. Now you have a wood pivot door that is extremely heavy. Such a heavy door requires expensive heavy duty hardware and a reinforced frame. Regular use of this heavy door creates a lot of torque on the frame and structure which results in regular maintenance on the door, the frame and the structure over time.

Modern Wood Pivot Doors

This new method of manufacturing pivot doors can produce a wood pivoting door that is not only lighter in weight and super strong but can be guaranteed not to warp?

How to Build a Modern Pivot Door

How to build a large wood modern pivot door warp free pivot doorModern pivot doors (even if they are wood pivot doors) start with the true green technology of the tried and true torsion box structure that is a well known woodworkers’ trade secret for a thousand years, only this patented material takes torsion box to the next level to produce pivoting warp free entrance doors.

The smaller the torsion boxes inside the modern pivot door, the stronger the doors. So we use a natural wood material to create the smallest torsion boxes (2 in. x 2 in.) for superior strength, but we don’t stop there. Next, we fill the little boxes with rigid recycled foam using formaldehyde-free glue for unprecedented shear strength.

This composite modern pivot door core is the secret inside our warp free pivot doors.

Warp-free Large Pivot Doors

Modern pivot doors warp free entrance doors for homes pivot door incWarp-free modern pivot doors can come in any shape, style, type, size or thickness. We have built extremely large pivot doors that were 37 feet tall (those were the tallest doors that we’ve built, so far). Modern pivot doors are built to architectural specifications and are much more affordable than you might think.

These affordable pivot doors sell for a fraction of the price of other custom pivot doors that range in price from $10,000 to $50,000 but outperform any other pivoting door in terms of weight, strength and ability to stay straight and flat virtually forever.

Pivoting Metal Door

Modern pivot doors could be manufactured of metal. The most popular types of metal requested recently include aluminum, stainless steel, galvanized steel, cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, brass and copper.

Normally metal pivot doors are very expensive and heavy from interior steel framing in an effort to keep the metal pivot doors from warping, not so, when we apply our new pivot door manufacturing techniques to your new metal door. They make spectacular steel exterior double doors as entrance doors for homes.

Due to the solid nature of our pivot door substrate (no portion of the pivot door core is hollow) you have a solid front door that is stronger than steel, yet lightweight and fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening qualities.

We believe (and you will, too) that this is the best method for making exterior doors.
