Internal Pivot Doors

What is a pivot door?

This type of door swings off a pivot – as opposed to being hinged at the side. Whether it’s installed as a main entrance way at the front of the house or used as a room divider, a pivot door can make a unique design statement.

How does a pivot door work?

This type of door opens by rotating on a pivotal system. It has two pivot points – one at the top and one at the bottom – which stabalise the door, allowing it to rotate on a point. Where the pivot point is placed is entirely down to personal choice.

Why choose a pivot door?

The obvious reason you might look to installing a pivot door within a build is for dramatic effect. These doors make for striking statement pieces and create a lasting impression, especially when chosen for the front entry way. However, they’re also a very practical choice. Some may favour a pivot door for ease of access or, because the door leaf reaches into both rooms, it’s an efficient space-saving solution too.

What are the benefits of a pivot door?

There are many advantages to a pivot door – aside from the obvious design statement it makes so well. They’re available in up to 3m x 3m in size (and up to 400kg in weight) for maximum impact that creates a wide and generous opening. Pivot doors can be kept shut, as they’re self-closing, which makes them ideal for reducing heating and energy costs. However, the opposite is also true – the door can easily hold itself open in any position without the need for an unsightly door stop. Pivot doors can be glazed as an additional design feature and they make for a practical entry way into rooms like pantries where ease of access is a priority. It’s worth bearing in mind during your architectural planning that pivot doors cannot be fire rated.
