What is a Pivot Door?
Initially patented in the 1970s, pivot doors function differently than regular hinge doors, and therefore create an entirely different look and feel. You see, pivot doors don’t actually have hinges — the door actually rests on a specific pivot point that can be located in many places along the top and bottom of the door, but is never on the very edge of the door in the same way that a hinge is.
The pivot point can be determined by aesthetic goals (such as in the middle of the middle of the door), or by the weight of the door. Because there is no hinge at the very edge, the balance of the door must be calculated precisely in order for the door to function properly. Unless the pivot point is decidedly in the middle, the pivot point is typically somewhere between 25 and 35% of the way in from the door frame. As you might expect, pivot doors fall on the modern or contemporary end of the design spectrum than anywhere else. The fact that they don’t open in the “traditional” way usually does cross them off the list for more… well, traditionally designed luxury homes.
Why Pivot Doors are Better than Hinge Doors
Decidedly, this is a matter of opinion. Pivot doors aren’t “better” than regular hinge doors — it’s simply a matter of personal style and aesthetic, perspective, and what you’re hoping to achieve with the opening, whether it be a front door, a garage fire door, or a bedroom security door. There are different factors involved, but here are some things to consider when choosing between a hinge door and a pivot door.
How Big is the Opening?
One of the best things about pivot doors is that they aren’t really restricted in size. It’s true that if you need the door to be hurricane certified there are some restrictions (because there are other factors in play), but one of the major benefits of pivot doors is that they aren’t held back by the hinge itself. Hinge doors are entirely dependent upon the weight the hinges can hold. In our case, we’re using steel hinges because they’re stronger, which is important for two reasons:
A steel hinge will keep you safer in the event of an intruder because it’s more difficult to damage.
Steel is a stronger metal and can support the weight of the steel security door on the hinge.
However, the distribution of weight is also a factor. Generally speaking, you can make large (oversized) hinge doors, but in order to get a wider opening, you’ll also need to create a taller opening. The typical ratio is that the door must be about twice as tall as it is wide, which is why a hinge door is often about 7 feet tall by 3 feet wide. Obviously, a double door will double the possible width of the opening. Double doors are frequently used for master bedrooms, but the height becomes an issue at some point because you’re limited by the ceiling.
