Exterior Pivot Doors

Here at Pivot Door Inc., we help our clients achieve new heights in high performance pivot doors of all sizes (up to 50 ft.) which might be problematic for most innovative architects, designers, door companies, millworks or contractors. As a rule most pivot door are larger in size than traditional out swing or sliding doors and can also be a great deal thicker, which adds to the elegant and massive look and feel of the door.

The problems associated with large pivot doors usually appear in terms of heavy weight and failure over time due to warping, bending and twisting. Even more problematic are exterior doors in comparison to interior doors as interior doors are more likely to have equally compatible climates on either side of the door while exterior doors have one side facing more extreme elements. Any environmental variances and changes on either side of the door will cause door warp and subsequent door and/or seal failure.

Steel doors are a common approach to solving the problems associated with warping exterior pivot doors, but introduce an entirely new set of problems. Necessary sacrifices will be necessary to accommodate the steel door solution to the issues associated with exterior pivot doors. For instance, solid steel doors (which are the least likely to warp) are very heavy, causing stress and strain on the structure and required extremely heavy duty pivot door hardware, which can be many times more expensive than the steel exterior pivot door itself.

Wood exterior pivot doors are the most sought after due to the natural beauty of organic wood, which leads to natural wood doors, like oak doors, the most popular wood pivot doors of all. Naturally, the nature of wood grain itself causes wood doors to warp even more, because wood doors are more sympathetic to the climate conditions on either side of the exterior pivot doors.

The expectation for entrance doors is extremely high in terms of maintaining an extraordinary appearance and nothing is more impressive or inviting than large exterior pivot doors.
