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.
