Pivoting elegance: Unveiling the allure and practicality of Deuren's bespoke pivot doors. 

At Deuren we pride ourselves in crafting made-to-measure and bespoke internal doors and being the ultimate solution for creating door sets in any configuration. From single and double-hinged doors to sleek sliding pocket doors and practical bi-folding doors, we have everything you need to enhance your space beautifully. By thoughtfully selecting the configuration that suits your space, you can create a harmonious and inspiring environment that you will love.

Here we explore how pivot doors are a practical and striking choice favoured for their contemporary and luxurious aesthetic. Covering the highs and lows of the pivot configuration you will find out why for many, they are the perfect choice.

What is a pivot door?

Deuren's pivot doors are designed to inspire. Unlike traditional hinged doors, these doors rotate around a vertical axis, supported by a concealed pivot hinge mechanism located at the top and bottom of the door. By being resin mounted to the floor and ceiling plates, these doors exude an air of sophistication and elegance.

Benefits of a pivot door.

Maximizing space utilization is an art, and pivot doors are the perfect tool to bring that art to life. These doors can be tailored to fit any floor-to-ceiling application and significantly wider ones, too.

The hardware may seem simple, but its high-quality materials and exceptional efficiency make it a remarkable product. It can support doors weighing up to 500kg and its swing speed can be adjusted to meet your needs. With its ability to self-close and hold in place, it is an ideal option for individuals with mobility difficulties.

Our pivot door offers limitless opportunities. It features a pivot point that can be positioned as close as 40mm to the side, creating maximum clearance when the door is open. If you aspire for an entrance that stands out, an oversized door leaf with a central pivot point can achieve a full 360° rotating entrance that is sure to be a conversation starter.

Pivot doors are a creative solution to transform any space. With their unique design, they can be crafted to the full cross-sectional dimensions of a hallway, making it appear like a secret door when closed. Moreover, since there is no contact point for the door to close, it operates silently, adding to the overall charm of the space.

Pitfalls of a pivot door.

Pivot doors offer numerous benefits, from their sleek design to their effortless operation. However, it's important to keep in mind that they cannot be fire-rated and are not highly insulating. To maintain the door's ability to swing both in and out, a small (shadow) gap must be maintained between the door and the wall, ceiling, and floor surfaces. As a result, a seal cannot be achieved. However, rest assured that we take these factors into consideration and only produce internal pivot doors for non-fire-rated applications.
