Frequently Asked Questions
How do pivot hinges work?
Pivot hinges change the way a door opens. Instead of hanging off of two or three metal hinges on one side of the door, a pivot hinge is located closer to the middle of the door. By installing the hinge on the top and bottom of the door and locating it nearer to the centre of the door, you can offset the heavy weight of a larger hardwood door. You can choose to have the door be free swinging or self-closing.
Where can I install a pivot door?
Install a pivot hinge door on any doorway with a uniquely large or heavy door. In theory, you could install a pivot door anywhere in you building. However, they’re very useful practically in situations involving heavy wooden doors.
Can you have a pivot front door?
Yes. Any door can be fitted with pivoting hinges.
