When it comes to metal pivot doors, Pivot Door Inc creates all kinds of metal pivot doors that are the best, highest precision, most Eco-friendly lightweight high strength metal pivot doors in the USA that are fully insulated for climate control and sound deadening properties. Only Pivot Door Inc metal pivot doors can be guaranteed to be true flat, warp-free – including full structural warranty – for 50 years!
Aluminum Pivot Doors
In 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.
