Feature a custom oversized large pivot front door that’ll stop any first time visitor in their tracks as they take a double-take.

From modern architects designing new, impressively unique cutting edge designs to high end house flipping, a large pivot front door feature is the answer for making a huge initial impact and adding value and curb appeal to your project.

But before you specify a pivot front door for your project, there are some things you should know before you proceed, especially if you’re considering a large pivot front door.

Pivot Front Door Warp

Ask and large pivot door manufacturer or millwork about large pivot front doors and they’re likely to reply, “We won’t offer a warranty on this particular part of the project because all large pivot doors warp.” This begs the question, “Why?”

The reason pivot front doors warp is due to the environmental conditions on either side of the door. If there exists two separate climate conditions, one on the interior of the building or house, and an altogether different condition on the exterior, the door will move, bend, twist or cup according to the opposing conditions.

To mitigate the damages of pivot front door warp potential, the designers may opt for very heavy metal materials, like steel, being used inside the door in an effort to keep the pivot front door straight.

Pivot Front Door Weight

If you’re building a large pivot front door with heavy metal inside, the end result is a door that will resist warping in a front door application, but heavy pivot doors require heavy duty pivoting door hardware, which often exceeds the cost of the pivot door itself.

And heavy duty pivot door hardware is just the beginning. Because the door is so heavy, using the door, opening and closing it for access to the building our house on a regular basis causes extra stress and strain on the hardware, the frame and the supporting structure of the heavy pivot front door, increasing maintenance costs over time.

Pivot Front Door Danger

Also, the heavier the door, the greater risk of injury when opening or closing the pivot front door. Unfortunately, injuries can be suffered, including the loss of a finger or limb if caught in the door when articulation is taking place.

Pivot Front Door Solution

That’s where Pivot Door Inc. comes in.

We specialize in helping door companies and millworks design the best insulated lightweight pivot front doors that offer sound dampening and climate control characteristics for increased safety and security and can also be guaranteed not to warp, bend twist or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Lightweight Pivot Front Door

We specialize in solving the problems associated with large pivot front doors, starting with the weight of the door. Every one of our solid core pivot front doors is a one-of-a-kind individual work of art that weighs a fraction of other solid core pivot front doors.

The secret is found inside the core itself. We feature a patented hybrid composite core material inside each pivot front door that allows us to create lightweight high strength, warp-free doors of any size.

Custom Pivot Front Door

Our lightweight pivot front door specialists help to design a custom pivoting front door that is perfectly matched for its intended use and purposes.

Many details are taken into consideration, like the appearance, design, exterior door materials (skins), geography, climate conditions and the direction the exterior surface faces (North, South, East or West), usage and position of the pivot in the door. All this is calculated into the custom design of the pivot front door for high performance over time.

50 Year Warp-free Pivot Front Door Guarantee

Our pivot front door is the only large door that can be guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail – including full structure warranty – for 50 years.

Many of the door companies and millworks can now offer a warranty on their work and materials, including the large pivot front doors, thanks to our 50 year large pivot front door guarantee. Therefore, if the rest of the project is guaranteed for 10 years, offering a ten year warranty on the otherwise excluded pivot front door is no problem.

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

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.

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.
