PIVOT DOORS - Modern Custom Front Entry Doors
The Pivot Doors rotate on a Pivot hinge that has a set of pins mounted on the top and bottom of the door. The hinge is offset from the door frame. The technology and design of a Pivot hinge allow for large doors that generally cannot be supported by traditional hinges. Pivot hinges are ideal for doors that are at least 42” wide. Outside of practicality, the door with its imaginative Pivot hinge system has a contemporary and seamless look. We recommend this kind of door for anyone looking for a modern, contemporary and transitional aesthetic.read more»

Innovations In the Construction of Pivot Doors
Typically, a Pivot door has the disadvantage of not being airtight. Usually, there is a space between the door and the jamb even when it is closed due to the unique design. But our Pivot entry doors are manufactured in Europe, equipped with the best European craftsmanship that addresses this problem (see photo). This includes joints with double rabbeted designs in the Pivot slab and the Pivot jamb that provide a better seal for the door, restricting the lateral air flow (see photo). In addition, all Pivot doors come with multipoint locking systems that minimize air flow and prevents warping (see photo). These features make our Pivot entrance and front doors very efficient, safe and eliminate the risk of deformation despite the large designs. But to remove all doubt, we offer a warranty against the warping of Pivot doors up to 5 feet x 9 feet.
Our pivot doors can weather any conditions that mother nature may throw at them. Because they are outfitted with superior technology, the Glenview Doors Pivot Door collection has exceptional insulation and powerful anti-warping and anti-cracking properties. This means that our doors can withstand even the hottest of Florida summers, even the harshest of Colorado winters. The unpredictable weather of the east coast (New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, etc) is no match for our pivot door collection.
Countless Options For Pivot Doors
Pivot doors come in custom sizes and countless customization options including mahogany, oak, walnut, and many other powerful wood veneers. Sidelites can be added to both sides of the Pivot door. Finally, metal inserts are available in black accents and stainless steel, and plenty of glass designs are available to complement many architectural styles like transitional, contemporary, and modern designs.
Pivot Door Finish
All pivot doors are pre-finished with high-end, water-based European exterior products. The finishing process provides exceptional weather resistance. We ensure that the Pivot doors are masterfully finished.
