What is a pivot door? How does a pivot front door work?
A pivot door is a door that swings on a set of pivot hinges located at the top and bottom of the door. Standard entry doors have side-mounted hinges that connect to the jamb, while pivot door hinges connect the door to the header above the door and the ground. This design allows for smoother operation and enables the door to support larger and heavier panels compared to traditional doors.
What are the benefits of pivot front doors?
Pivot doors can be made much bigger and wider than their swinging counterparts. This is because traditional hinges have size and weight limits. But a pivot hinge has a different relationship with gravity, and there aren’t sizing constraints. If you’re looking for a taller, wider entry door, pivot doors are the way to go.
What makes a RealCraft pivot entry door different?
Our pivot entry doors are made with solid wood and traditional joinery. This gives our doors a luxurious, premium look and feel. They are also built to last and withstand years of heavy use. You can choose from twenty wood species, including classics like White Oak or Cherry, and exotic imports like Sapele Mahogany. So no matter what your style is, you can find an option that’s right for you. Our pivot front door designs are elegant, proportional, and unique.
Do RealCraft pivot doors have weather stripping?
Yes they do! Kerfed weather stripping is standard on all entry doors. We also use a brush sweep on the bottom of the door to seal it against the elements,
Can I adjust or customize the pivot door hinge?
Yes, you can! We chose the M+ pivot system from FritsJurgens because it can be adjusted to meet your needs. Manufactured in Germany to the highest quality standards, it's the most premium pivot option we could find. You can set opening and closing speeds, and damper control—so it will never slam. It also has latch control so the latching bolts will always close properly. The pivot is weight rated for doors up to 1000 pounds.
Can exterior pivot doors swing both ways?
Yes. If you choose the “turnstile” option instead of the M+ pivot, your pivot door will swing both ways. If you get the turnstile, you’ll need to get a doorstop or something else to keep the pivot door from hitting the wall.
