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?

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.

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.

Additional Pivot Door Qualities

Insulated Pivot Doors

When your no-fail pivot doors have our patented lightweight structural solution inside, we also pre-pack your pivot door with insulation which allows your end user (and you) the ability to enjoy a pivoting door that also offers:

Additional Safety and Security
Better Climate Control
More Privacy

The built-in insulation imbues the pivot door with effective R-value not associated with pivot doors lacking in insulation as well as sound deadening qualities.

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 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.
