Architects and designers have so many things to worry about that they often overlook one of the main parts of their project, doors.  Door types must not only match the rest of the structural elements of the building, but there is a great obligation to make pivot doors especially consistent with window styles.  This is true not only for exterior, but also for interior doors.  With interior doors, there is a sure fire way to make sure to always maintain consistency in terms of style.

Who Should Use Large Pivot Doors

Pivot doors have become an absolute staple for the highest end residential and commercial structures.  They work in many situations where conventional hinge doors will not work.  First of all, they are great when you can’t have a door that slides outward into the room because of space restrictions.  They also can span larger openings.

Large Pivot Door Considerations

Because of the increased size, large pivot doors must be designed far better to function expertly when compared to conventional doors.  If not manufactured correctly, larger doors are at great risk of warping, cupping, breaking, cracking, or separating.  They also require much more materials to create.  In part, that is why they are more expensive.  Not to mention, they require a larger facility and more man hours to create.  They are also more difficult to hang, because of the size.  Large pivot doors also need much heavier duty hardware that ends up being much more expensive overall.  Many manufacturers build large pivot doors that are far too heavy and too curved to operate properly.
