While pivot doors are gaining ground among the architects and designers who specify Pivot Door Inc. pivoting doors, there is some concern in terms of pricing as otherwise affordable pivot doors are often expensive to handle because they are very large and oversized.
The Problem with Affordable Pivot Doors
Affordable pivot doors are thicker than average doors and heavy in weight. The large size and heavy weight causes extra costs associated with shipping and handling. Shipping is more expensive because shipping costs are calculated on weight. Handling is more expensive because heavy equipment is necessary for transporting and manipulating the pivot door into place for installation. Pivot door hardware is also based on the affordable pivot door’s weight, so a heavier pivot door will require more expensive heavy duty hardware.

Thick and Heavy Weight
The large size and heavy weight causes extra costs associated with shipping and handling. Shipping is more expensive because shipping costs are calculated on weight. Handling is more expensive because heavy equipment is necessary for transporting and manipulating the pivot door into place for installation. Pivot door hardware is also based on the affordable pivot door’s weight, so a heavier pivot door will require more expensive heavy duty hardware.
Require Regular Maintenance
Added stress and strain is applied to the door frame and structure when an otherwise affordable pivot door is operated on a regular basis due to the added size and weight requiring regular maintenance on the pivot door and the structure.
Are Prone to Warp or Cupping
The idea of a pivot door – or any door for that matter – is to separate two areas one from the other. Large pivot doors (in fact, any door over 7 ft tall and/or 3.5 ft wide) will warp, bend, twist or cup due to changes in temperature, barometric conditions or other environmental conditions affecting the door’s ability to stay straight and true. If the affordable pivot door warps separation is lost, the door seal is compromised and the affordable pivot door may not latch or may not be able to operate at all.
