PIVOT Custom Front Doors - EuroTechTM (Euro Technology) Modern Collection

Pivot Doors Icon

Pivot Doors revolve around a hinge that is offset from where a hinge would be on a traditional door. The craftsmanship and technology of a Pivot hinge allows for a larger opening than most other types of doors since traditional hinges cannot carry the same kind of weight. This is why we recommend Pivot doors for doors that are 42" or larger. This design has its practical uses but it also provides a clean, seamless aesthetic for a home. We strongly support using Pivot doors in a home that has a contemporary, modern, and transitional aesthetic.

The Glenview Haus Pivot Front Door collection provides a sleek welcome into any contemporary, transitional and modern Chicago or North Shore home. With state-of-the-art insulation, our Pivot Door Collection is the first of its kind when it comes to practicality in more extreme Chicago or North Shore climates. With a sturdy door thickness, complimentary multi-point lock and a double rabbeted jamb; this door is as safe as it is beautiful.

Strides In Pivot Door Technology

For a long time, Pivot Doors have had the problem of a lack of insulation. No matter how good the door, many companies still cannot limit the airflow around the frame of the door due to the way Pivot doors are constructed. However, our Pivot doors are developed with European technology that has found a solution to this issue. Using double rabbeted joints, we can provide the best possible sealing on the side of the frame, between the slab and the jamb, limiting the airflow. Furthermore, all of our Pivot doors come with a multipoint locking system which stops warping and lowers airflow even more. Using this technology, we are able to ensure that our Pivot doors are secure, energy efficient, and no warping. But in case you are still worried, we offer a warping warranty for Pivot doors as large as 5 feet x 9 feet.

Customization on Pivot Doors

With options like walnut wood, oak wood, mahogany wood and many other exotic wood veneers, Pivot doors have countless customization options. Other than color, Pivot doors come in several sizes with sidelites available on either side. Metal inserts are also available in stainless steel and black accents, with assorted glass designs available to enrich transitional, contemporary, and modern designs.

Quality Finishing Guaranteed With Pivot Doors

Every Pivot Door is prefinished with high-end and water-based European exterior products. We ensure that all Pivot doors are finished with improved weather resistance and with masterful care.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Pivot Doors

What are pivot doors?

Pivot Front doors are larger than typical Entry swing doors. Pivot Entry Doors revolve around a hinge that is offset from would be on a traditional Entry swing door. These Pivot Front Doors are visible from all sides and with all details on display. This Pivot Entry Door trend began in warmer climates where insulation is not a large factor in the design process. Typically, standard Pivot Front Doors are not well insulated, creating a draft in your home. Our custom Pivot Front Doors are built with the highest quality draft-resistant products to withstand extreme Chicago temperatures in the Summer and Winter months. With a double rabbeted jamb, these doors are not only well insulated, but they are incredibly secure and are high performing when it comes to protection.

What are multipoint locks used for Pivot Doors?

Multipoint locks serve the purpose of increasing security, increasing insulation, and reducing warping. As the name suggests, multipoint locks are attached at several points instead of just one. While this provides several benefits, what we are most interested in here is warping since Pivot doors are larger and therefore more susceptible. The multiple locking points allow the door to be more anchored and greatly lower warping compared to regular locks.

Why do we use double rabbeted jambs on our Pivot doors?

Double rabbeted jambs address the downside to Pivot doors: lack of insulation. Due to the design of Pivot doors that many companies use, they allow for more airflow even when closed compared to doors with normal hinges. Our double rabbeted jambs address this issue. They allow the gap between the slab and jamb to be much smaller on the side, restricting airflow and improving insulation

How are Pivot doors special?

Pivot doors are special because they can be larger than traditional doors. The hinge is offset from the frame by a couple of inches, allowing the door to handle more weight. Pivot hinges are placed on the top and the bottom of the frame and the door revolves around it. So not only can the door be bigger, but it doesn’t feel as heavy because part of the door is on the other side of the hinge. Pivot doors are great for those who would like a larger front door, and they fit perfectly for houses with a contemporary, modern, or transitional architectural style.
