Pivot Door

Pivot doors are emerging in architectural designs of the most glamorous, upscale housing, mansions and million dollar homes. The pivot door is large and there exists some problems with big doors. Pivoting doors are normally taller than 7 ft. and wider than 3 ft. and when the design calls for an elegant wood pivot door, this places the pivot door company in a quandary.

Certainly you can build a large wooden pivot door, and pivot door manufacturers build large wood pivot doors every day, that’s their job. The resulting big pivot doors, which are also very thick in comparison to other traditional hinge doors, then are transferred to the site, where the onsite pivot door installation crew installs the door.

The three main door handlers are 1) The customer or end user, 2) The pivot door manufacturer and 3) The pivot door installers. Unfortunately, with large wood pivot doors there are problems associated with each of these three major areas involved in the life of the natural wood pivot door.

The problems are: 1) The customer or end user wants a wood pivot door that does not warp or require endless maintenance, 2) The pivot door makers don’t want to make a door that is destined to fail (unless they make most of their money on maintenance contracts) 3) Installers have to deal with extremely heavy doors requiring heavy duty pivot door hardware and moving the door around and into position require a lot of labor and equipment on the job site.

Following the installation, the results are perfect. Everyone can sit back and view the fruits of their labor. The client’s exquisite vision has been executed in the most fabulous way and all the participants are proud of the part each of them has played in the pivot door team effort.

That is, until as soon as the next change of season, or as much as a year later… when the beautiful large pivot door begins to fail. The wood in the pivot door begins to move due to the change in heat and or moisture in the air compromising the pivot door seal, the door hardware begins to fail due to regular use, and/or the large heavy pivoting door causes extra stress on the structure causing it to shift.

Pivot door inc modern pivot door warp free wood pivot doorWe use the most revolutionary patented pivot door core to achieve the ultimate non warping characteristics found in our pivot doors. Each modern pivot door is fully insulated, sound deadening and can be guaranteed warp-free for fifty years.

This new generation of pivot doors are the fastest growing segment among large pivot door options in luxury homes and mansions. This new technology allows us to build a high precision (+/- .006 in) large pivot door that is lightweight (a fraction of the weight of other pivot doors) without compromising structure strength (660 PSI) as they are stronger than steel pound for pound.

 

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.

Exterior Pivot Doors

Wood pivot doors generally are problematic due to the nature of the natural wood desired by the end user.

While the natural wood is beautiful, it does tend to move, bend, cup and/or twist especially if exposed to weather or separating two spaces with varying temperature, moisture or climate control. All Pivot Door Inc pivot doors are also pre-insulated to provide insulation value of at least R3.5 per inch (upgradeable), providing both climate control and sound deadening capabilities.

Only warp-free Pivot Door Inc pivot door substrates can be structurally guaranteed not to fail or warp no matter what the exterior door dimensions are.

Large Pivot Door

large pivot door warp free wood pivot doorsThe large pivot door is the bane of wood workers and millworks attempting to achieve high performance standards of specified large pivot doors. In fact, they are such the cause of great distress or annoyance that standard pivot door manufacturers will not accept the large pivot door jobs because of the dissatisfaction that comes with having to make repeated service calls due to warping pivot doors.

Not a problem for modern pivot doors by Pivot Door Inc; ours are the only pivoting doors that will not warp regardless of the size or exposure to the elements. Your front door dimension can be any size (some recent non-warping large pivot doors that we helped create were 37 ft tall) height, width and almost any thickness and still be guaranteed not to warp, bend or twist for 50 full years, even if your pivot door is a wood pivot door.

Mission Impossible Pivot Door

pivot door 37 ft tall aluminum pivot doors 50 year non warp guaranteeBefore the discovery of our patented warp-free pivot door substrate it was strictly impossible to build a lightweight high strength pivot door that would not warp. If the pivot door is over 7 ft tall and/or 4 ft wide, you are asking for trouble leading to extra expenses in hardware, installation and maintenance.

Most large pivot doors are extremely heavy; they need the added weight and material (sometimes interior steel framing) in an attempt to mitigate the damages that will present themselves from the regular performance of the large pivot door’s operation.

Your exterior large contemporary pivot door can look amazing following installation but commonly fail soon or during the next season.

Once the pivot door moves and the pivot door seal is compromised, repair, maintenance increase and these large pivot doors must be replaced periodically.
