Your Pivot Door Inc. aluminum pivot door is the only Eco-friendly guaranteed warp-free metal pivot door that can be guaranteed for 50 years.

Our aluminum pivot doors are built by hand in our factory in Washington State in the pristine Pacific Northwest of the Unites States of America using a process focused on Eco-friendly metal manufacturing methods which preserve the environment as an alternative to traditional metal working which creates a toxic impact on the environment as well as not an efficient use of energy expended in the process.

How can our aluminum pivot door be stronger than steel?

Our aluminum pivot doors are manufactured utilizing a patented product and manufacturing process that is based on a composite insulated torsion box hybrid which outperforms any other lightweight material in terms of strength, deflection, shear strength and resistance to warp. No more having to worry about door failure due to warp, bending, twisting, compromising door seals and or locking mechanisms.

How strong is our aluminum pivot door?

Our patented core is the heart and soul of your aluminum pivot door that exceeds strengths of 660 PSI, which is many times stronger than the 10 to 110 PSI found in traditional aerospace designs. That’s why you find our aluminum pivot doors anywhere from beneath the sea (US Navy) to outer space (NASA) and everywhere in between. Nothing else compares in terms of Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength and sustainability.

Our modern aluminum pivot door is the most cost effective among other modern aluminum doors available due to their high precision (+/- .006 inch) and high performance (dead flat, straight and true, guaranteed) while also saving on heavy duty hardware required by heavier modern aluminum doors.

The last thing your client wants is your aluminum double doors or even your aluminum swing door to fail, whether the application is industrial, commercial or even residential aluminum front doors for homes.

Commercial applications include aluminum storefront doors that are lightweight in comparison to other solid core aluminum pivot doors and have excellent strength to weight ratio that makes all the difference in a modern aluminum storefront.

Having warp-free exterior aluminum doors that are lightweight, very strong and can withstand the test of time with little or no maintenance issues is extremely beneficial to the most discriminating commercial enterprises.

Though our expertise is in large oversize aluminum pivot doors of extreme size, we help to provide the most high precision, high performance Eco-friendly lightweight, high strength aluminum door blanks to door companies, manufacturers, contractors and millworks.

So whether you’re looking for the perfect aluminum storefront doors, aluminum French doors, exterior aluminum doors, flush aluminum doors or aluminum entrance doors, your friends at Pivot Door Inc. has the aluminum technology enabling you to deliver the best results to your clients that can be backed by our 50 year warp-free and full structure guarantee.

Aluminum Pivot Doors

large aluminum pivot doors metal pivot doors lightweight stronger than steelIn 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.

Pivoting Pivot Door

At Pivot Door Inc., we’ve been assisting in the building the best pivot doors for years, though you’re unlikely to be able to walk into your favorite door store and say, “Hi, I want a Pivot Door Inc. pivot door, please.” And you’re likely not to find one on display wherever pivot doors are on sale. Why?

exterior-pivot-door

Because we only help pivot door manufacturers and millworks who specialize in creating only the best pivot doors for the most discriminating customers throughout the USA and the world. It’s not our name that’s on the door, because we neither do the pivot door finishing nor the pivot door hardware.

The key component of the best pivot doors is having Pivot Door Inc. create the lightweight, high strength heart of the pivot door. Deep inside the best pivot doors, you will find our patented pivoting door substrate that weighs in at a fraction of other solid pivot door cores and stronger than steel pound for pound (660 PSI) which enables your favorite pivot door manufacturer to create a pivoting door that will not fail.

Wood Pivot Door

wood-pivot-doorThe wood pivot door is the most sought after pivoting door due to its ornate elegance. There’s nothing more elegantly pleasing to the eye than the visual impact of a solid wood pivot door. They are especially more impressive, the larger and thicker they are. Unfortunately, wood is a fickle organic material with wood grain that moves and shifts according to environmental changes.

That’s where we come in. We provide millworks and pivot door manufacturers with a torsion box pivot door base material that is impervious to the natural characteristic of natural wood’s propensity to bend or cup. Now, pivot door builders can make warp-free wood pivot doors as impervious to potential failure as solid steel that are featherweight in comparison.

Exterior Pivot Door

pivot-doorExterior pivot doors offer challenges due to being exposed to the elements. As we’ve already established, our pivot door core material solves the problems associated with the tendency of the pivot door, especially if it’s a large exterior pivot door, to fail due to compromise.

That said, there is an additional benefit of having our solution inside your pivoting door; we pack the pivot door’s torsion box structure interior wall-to-wall with rigid foam insulation. This adds a respectable R value to the door for added separation from the elements, while saving energy costs and adding sound deadening qualities thereby increasing both safety and security, resulting in a better exterior pivot door, that could be made of any material such as a natural wood pivot door, steel pivot door, or any kind of metal pivot door including (but not limited to) aluminum pivot doors and pivot French doors exterior.

Specialty Pivot Doors

steel-pivot-doorWe help the best pivot door builders create the most amazing pivoting doors. Our process presents the highest degree of precision in pivot door interior substrates boasting the highest tolerances (+/- .006 in.). This high tolerance can be critical when maintaining flatness which maintains a high precision door seal over time, but can also bring additional high performance features enabling the architect or designer to create even more exquisite pivot doors.

For instance, a pivot sliding door operates best over time if the sliding pivot door remains straight and true, for any movement may compromise the operation of the pivot sliding door. This is also carries a high degree of importance when considering other pivot door hybrids, like a pivoting pocket door, which pivots as well as conceals and secures within a pocket making it an invisible door to the naked eye.

Warped doors are problematic for multifunctional and operational pivot doors combining one or more types of pivot door and/or sliding door hardware. The last thing you want is to compromise your pivot sliding door fitting.

Pivot Door Guarantee

If you have Pivot Door Inc. inside your pivoting door, you can have a 50 year no-fail warranty. That’s right, your architectural pivot door can be guaranteed not to warp, bend twist or otherwise fail (including full structural warranty) for 50 years. That’s the difference between a pivot door inc and any other pivoting door that does not have the benefits of our patented substrate and engineered pivoting door base system.

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.
