Pivot doors are becoming more popular among Perth area homeowners who want to make a visual statement, but they have benefits that go beyond the visual. Here’s why more and more homeowners around Perth are choosing to have us build them pivot doors for their front entryways or businesses.
Standard front entry doors are attached to the door frame. The frame has to support the entire weight of the door. If you want a solid timber door or a door built with thick, weatherproof glass, it can put a lot of strain on the frame and even cause it to break. That’s why so many front entry doors are hollow and made of laminate or aluminium instead of solid timber or glass.
Pivot doors solve the weight problem because they rest on a pivot. The pivot at the bottom of the door supports it. There is another pivot at the top of the door which helps the door stay in position, straight and snug in the doorway.
At Fremantle Door and Window, the design options are seemingly endless. We can provide you with a pivot door of solid glass, solid timber, glass with a timber frame and any combination of timber and/or glass you would like. Solid glass is stunning in a number of business and residential settings, but solid timber can be just as impressive. It all depends on what image you want to project.
From timeless prosperity to cutting-edge modern fashion, we can make pivot doors that say whatever you want your friends, family, clients or employees to know about you and your home or business.
The Main Advantages of Pivot Doors
The first advantage of pivot doors is the stability created by the pivot on the floor. Instead of hanging off a frame, the door is resting on the floor. Pivot doors are also easy to open and close. But the main advantage is their look. You have to see some of them to believe what they can do for your home or business.
