Affordable Pivot Doors

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.

Very Large and Oversized

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.

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.
