Pivot door frames vary in width depending on the material of construction. Aluminum and wood door frames are weaker and must, therefore, be made wider than steel door frames. On the contrary, steel door frames are more robust and can be made very thin due to the superior strength of steel.
The Full View Modern Steel Door frame is 4” wide. Our narrow backset lock is installed in the pivot door and latches into the jamb.
The Ultra-Thin Modern Steel Door frame is 1” wide. Our narrow backset lock can be installed in the pivot door and latch into the jamb. Alternatively, our electric lock can be installed in the jamb and latch into the pivot door.
Standard Pivot Door Jamb
Pivot doors are hinged on the jamb and threshold. The pivot door jamb is what is fastened to your home on either side and at the top. The standard Modern Steel Doors jamb is 5 ½” deep and 1 ½” wide. Jambs are also available 4 ½”, 6 ½” or 8 ½” deep. Integrated thresholds are included and tailored to your floor covering height and configuration.
