Pivot doors are one of the most popular design options for modernising a home, but they aren’t for everyone. The reason why: a heavy duty pivot entry door can be a bold design statement and some people just aren’t that bold.
What are Pivot Doors?
Pivot doors are made of solid, heavy duty, weatherproof glass. They are not hung on the wall, but on “pivots” installed in at the top and bottom. The pivot point can be anywhere from the centre of the door to just near the edge. This produces an offset when opening the door. It also means that you don’t have a frame supporting the entire side of the door. Instead, the weight of the door is on the lower pivot and it is stabilised by the upper pivot.
More Advantages of Pivot Doors
Pivot doors can have timber frames if you like, or they can be frameless. They can also be much bigger than a conventional door. The front entry door is the door that makes the biggest design statement of any door in your home. It is the first thing people see when they walk in. A large, modern looking pivot door is a great way to tell your guests that you are prosperous and not afraid to use modern design.
The aesthetic of a large pivot door at the front of your home is unparalleled. The word “awesome” is overused in today’s society, but a large pivot door can be an awesome presence at the front of your home.
We have also installed large pivot doors as the entry doors for patios and porches, separate from the door between the home and the patio or alfresco living area. Wherever you use a pivot door, your design is guaranteed to be unique and anything but ordinary.
