Pivot doors make a grand statement in your main entryway and are a popular design alternative to the traditional hinged door.
Unlike conventional doors, which are supported by hinges to open or close; pivot doors use a hydraulic pivot pin for support. Available in hold-open or close options, our heavy-duty pivot doors can be easily made to withstand a weight of up to 300kg, all the while ensuring continuous operation. This means we can design a large entry door that is bound to impress.Request a free quote
Custom manufacturing our pivot doors in our Melbourne factory allows us to design your door in various configurations – with sidelights, full height entrance to the top of the ceiling or just by itself. We can design the door to open inwards, outwards or in both directions!
In addition to restricting the direction, a plant on doorstop can be used to confine how far the door can swing and which direction it will open. Pivot point placement will depend on the dimensions of the door and is placed in a way so that it can handle and support the weight and function of the door correctly and safely.
With cleaner lines, pivot doors add a great character to the modern aesthetic of any project – residential home or a commercial building.
Our pivot doors can be made to suit any space, thanks to their unique configuration possibilities. They can be installed to open inward into the home, or outward to greet the guests – or in both directions, depending on the needs of the property.
