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.

Pivoting Door Pivot Doors

Wonder why upscale architectural projects are featuring big pivot doors in their design? It certainly is the trend to feature a massive pivot door as your primary focal point in your front entrance door. Pivot doors do not have to be large in size but nothing makes a more impactful impression as the oversized pivot doors.

As amazing as large pivot doors are, there are some issues that are problematic when managing them in many stages of the “I want a big pivot door!” experience.

The most important decision to make when considering the manufacture of a large pivoting door is

What materials will be used in the composition of the pivot door?

Not only the appearance is determined by the exterior material of large pivot doors, but the expertise of the pivot door craftsman comes into play, relying on outside sources to help mitigate the problems associated with weight, strength and/or potential failure due to warp (bend, twist or cup). These are the first items to consider.

Pivot Door Weight

lightweight pivot door stronger than steel pound for pound warp free insulated pivoting doorLarge pivot doors are going to be heavy, the bigger the door, the more it is going to weigh. This heavy weight door poses many problems. First off, the due to the size and weight of the door, transporting and managing the door for installation is expensive, requiring extra equipment, labor, energy consumption and additional risk of on the job injury. Not to mention extra stress and strain on the structure as well as more expensive heavy duty hardware required (based on the heavy pivot door weight).

It is reasonable to decide a composite pivoting door with an alternative lightweight core is the logical conclusion. The only problem with lightweight pivot door cores is that they fail to offer much in the way of structural strength.

Pivot Door Strength

high strength lightweight wood pivot doors stronger than steel pivoting door demonstrationA strong pivoting door is essential, especially if you’re going to traverse down the path of a composite pivot door utilizing different materials.

Our patented solution eliminates the concern of failing pivot doors, because our process is all about maintaining structural integrity, with our lightweight 660 PSI (stronger than steel pound for pound) solution.

Another concern is structural integrity. What good is an excellently specified and engineered large architectural pivot door, if it fails to stand the test of time? Our patented pivot door solutions can be structurally guaranteed not to fail for 50 years.

Warp-free Large Pivot Door

warp free pivot doors non warping pivoting doors lgihtweight stronger than steelAnother key consideration when considering a large oversized pivot door, is managing the warping of the pivot door following installation. While door seals and latches may line up perfect upon installation, large doors will tend to move. Wood pivot doors, even if composited, will warp due to the nature of the natural wood itself, as it will bend, twist or cup due to changes in moisture or weather patterns.

Our premium warp-free solution combines our lightweight, structural core material with patented stiffener technology to prevent large pivot doors from warping. In fact, we build the only warp-free large pivoting doors that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for a full 50 years.

Additional Pivot Door Qualities

When specified as a pivot front door, your Pivot Door Inc pivoting door can have the look and feel of a traditional solid pivot door at a fraction of the weight without compromising strength. Our door substrates are constructed using a proprietary patented core material that is high precision, and has been University tested to be stronger than steel pound per pound.

A pivot main door has problems, mostly because you have varying climates on either side of the door. The nature of the material featured on the exterior surfaces of the pivot door will cause it to bend, this way or that, compromising both the door and the door’s seal. The failed door will require a service visit from your door company or contractor. Not so, if you have a door that does not fail.

Millworks and wood workers enjoy working with our Eco-friendly pivot door core because you can use regular wood working tools and methods to work with the material.

Large pivot doors do not have to necessarily be the most expensive door and they can still be warp-free. You may be surprised to learn that our doors are affordable pivot doors and due to being so lightweight, you can use less expensive pivot door hardware, even when using a large pivot. The less expensive entrance door hardware will also be less likely to fail due to the increased performance of your pivot door.

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

pivot door warp free modern pivot doors exotic woods high end homesOur modern pivot doors are the pivot door being sought out by wood workers and millworks building custom wood pivot doors for high end applications. 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.

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.
