Pivot Doors

Pivot doors have become increasingly popular in recent years as a stylish and functional alternative to traditional hinged doors. These unique doors pivot on a central hinge, allowing for a larger opening and more flexibility in design. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of pivot doors and their various applications in residential and commercial spaces.

What Are Pivot Doors?

Pivot doors are a type of door that swings on a central pivot point, rather than on hinges attached to one side of the frame. This means that the weight of the door is distributed evenly across the pivot point, making it easier to open and close, especially for larger and heavier doors. Pivot doors can be designed to swing in both directions, allowing for more flexibility in design and function.

Benefits of Pivot Doors

One of the main benefits of pivot doors is their size. Because they pivot on a central point, they can be much wider and taller than traditional hinged doors. This allows for more natural light to enter the space, as well as a larger opening for easier access and flow between rooms. Pivot doors also create a sense of grandeur and sophistication, making them an excellent choice for modern and contemporary designs.

Another benefit of pivot doors is their flexibility in design. They can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, glass, metal, and even acrylic. This allows for endless possibilities in terms of style and finish, as well as the ability to customize the door to fit the specific needs of the space.

Pivot doors are also known for their ease of use. Because they pivot on a central point, they do not require the same level of maintenance as traditional hinged doors, which can become misaligned over time. Pivot doors also require less floor space to open, making them an ideal choice for smaller rooms or spaces with limited floor area.

Applications of Pivot Doors

Pivot doors can be used in a variety of residential and commercial applications. In residential settings, pivot doors can be used as front doors, interior doors, or even closet doors. They are an excellent choice for open-plan living spaces, where they can create a seamless transition between rooms, or for small apartments where space is at a premium.

In commercial settings, pivot doors are often used as entrance doors to hotels, restaurants, and retail spaces. They create a grand entrance and make a bold statement, while also allowing for ease of access and flow of foot traffic. Pivot doors are also ideal for office spaces, as they can create a sense of privacy and separation between different areas, while still allowing for an open and collaborative environment.

Design Considerations

When designing a space with pivot doors, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind. First and foremost, the size and weight of the door must be taken into account. Pivot doors can be larger and heavier than traditional hinged doors, so it is important to ensure that the frame and hardware can support the weight of the door. Monumental pivot doors are lighter than most, thanks to the aluminum frame.

Another consideration is the location and placement of the door. Because pivot doors swing on a central point, they require more clearance space around the door frame than traditional hinged doors. This means that the placement of the door must be carefully considered, to ensure that there is enough space for the door to swing open and closed without obstruction.

In terms of style and finish, pivot doors offer endless possibilities. They can be customized to fit the specific needs of the space, whether that means incorporating unique materials, finishes, or hardware. When selecting materials, it is important to consider durability, maintenance, and compatibility with the overall design aesthetic of the space.

Pivot doors offer a stylish and functional alternative to traditional hinged doors. They provide a larger opening and more flexibility in design, making them an excellent choice for both residential and commercial spaces.

Advantages of Hinged Doors

One of the main advantages of hinged doors is their simplicity. They are made up of two panels attached to a frame by hinges, which allows them to swing open and closed. This simplicity means that hinged doors are easy to operate and maintain, and can last for many years with minimal upkeep.

Hinged doors also offer great flexibility in terms of design. They can be made from a variety of materials, such as wood, glass, metal, or composite materials, and can be painted or stained to match any decor. They are also available in a range of sizes and styles, from traditional to contemporary, so there is a hinged door to suit every taste. Monumental uses thermally broken aluminum as a light-weight, Earth-friendly framing choice.

Hinged doors are a timeless and practical choice for any home or building. They offer simplicity, durability, and design flexibility, making them a great choice for a wide range of applications. While they do have a few drawbacks, such as requiring adequate clearance to open and close, they are still an excellent choice for most situations.
