What is a pivot door? How do they work?

Pivot Door[piv-uh t]  [dawr]

  1. A door that rotates about an axis that is nonadjacent to its doorjamb. The nonadjacent axis placement creates a space on either side of a pivoting door and its doorjamb. The active side of a pivot door moves in an opposing direction to the inactive side as the pivot door is operated. The dual spaces and opposing movements of a pivot door create a unique experience in contrast to the single space and single directional movement of a conventional door.
  2. A door that transfers its weight directly downward. Pivot doors are suspended via a hinge placed under the door and a hinge placed on top of the door. The hinge under the door transfers the door’s weight directly downward. The hinge on top of the door maintains the door’s alignment by subduing the shear force. Both hinges must be capable of mitigating the respective forces for ease of use.
    • Conventionally hinged doors indirectly transfer their weight through the doorjamb. The indirect transfer is accomplished through pushing and pulling on the doorjamb. The stress of pushing and pulling causes misalignment and reduces the size and weight capacity of conventionally hinged doors.

What does all of this mean to me?

  1. You can have a really big front door, two to three times bigger than a regular door.
  2. You can have an entrance door that creates a show as it operates.
  3. Your front door can transcend all other doors and become an unforgettable experience.
