A pivot door rotates around an imaginary vertical axis. With their size and movement, they can create truly unique design statements.
Some refer to them as pivot doors; but Portapivot calls them "pivoting room dividers". A pivot door, thanks to innovative pivot hinges, can be installed without the need for integrated floor mountings like a traditional floor sprung.
A pivot door can be installed in both new buildings as existing homes and offices. The door is installed in the fully finished opening without any built-in parts, it's simply mounted on top of the finished floor and ceiling surface with 2 bolts and plugs to a depth of +/- 45 mm.
The vertical axis can be in an offset position (180°) or in the middle of the door, allowing it to pivot 360°. With the axis off-centre, the pivot axis position depends on the overal width of the door. For doors wider than 1250 mm, a minimum ratio of 1/4 is advised for stability and durability.
A pivot hinge is fitted inside the door leaf and therefor remains invisible. Pivot hinges can be integrated in virtually any door type, regardless the material used. Pivot doors are mounted inside a fully finished wall opening and don't require traditional door frames.
