What is a pivot door?
A pivot door is one that opens and closes by rotating on a spindle instead of hinges attached to the side of a door and door frame
What is the advantage of a pivot door?
Other than the “unique” factor, the main reason to use a pivot door is it allows for much wider doors. The door in the house we stayed in was a very wide single panel door.
The wider the door, the further in from the frame the spindle.
One other advantage, which is always the case with home improvement, and that is design. You simply might prefer the look of a larger single panel door.
Types of pivot doors
There are two main ways to categorize pivot doors. By use and by material. Other than that, they function much the same way.
By use, referring to the type of door as in location in the home. While you could technically turn any door into a pivot door, they are usually used for the following purposes.
Pivot front door
The most commonly used pivot door (not that they’re terribly common) is for a front door. This gives a homeowner the opportunity to hang a huge front door that’s not a double-pane.
Pivot shower door
Another area in the house where pivot doors are used is for shower doors. Showers get bigger and bigger every year which offers more space for a larger door. Pivot style glass doors make it possible to hang a large shower door.
Pivot closet door
While pivot doors are often used so that the door can be huge, you can also use a pivot hinge for closet doors.
Can you use pivot doors for interior or patio doors?
Sure you can. A pivot door can be used wherever you’d have a traditional hinge door. It just depends if you want to spend the money and have the space. In fact, they could make for a great patio entry door given they can be large which results in a nice wide entrance to the patio.
Another way to distinguish among pivot doors is by material. There are three main materials used for pivot doors. They are:
There are also hybrids that incorporate two or more of the above materials such as steel and wood.
Can pivot doors swing both ways?
Yes, you can have them installed so that they swing inward or outward. For a front door this might be good but for a closet, you’ll want them to only swing outward.
Door hinges and pivots can wear down or come out of alignment over time. This will cause your door to drag the ground or scrub in the frame. Pivot Door Hinges Replacement Whitby offers several solutions to this problem. If you have a storefront type of door, we can either replace your pivots or install a continuous piano type hinge to get your door back on track. Wood and metal doors usually have commercial grade hinges. We can shim and replace these hinges or install a continuous hinge to more evenly distribute the weight of the door on the frame.
