PIVOT FRONT DOOR SYSTEM
Thermally-isolated aluminum pivot doors are ideal for over-sized openings in interior and light exterior applications. The “hinges”—also known as the pins of the pivot door—are located at the top and bottom of the door, allowing the unit to pivot instead of swing open. Customers can choose to have a center-pivot door or have a custom pivot point. Pivot door pins are located at the top and bottom of the frame, allowing the door to pivot. Each door’s pivot point is custom located by request; center and off-center pivot locations are available (subject to engineering approval). The pivot door matches that of our folding glass walls. This allows for transoms and sidelights to be constructed from the pivot door frame, creating the same sightlines for each unit.
Common commercial applications include car dealerships, hotels, hospitals, and entrances to businesses or restaurant decks.
While large openings are possible and very useful in commercial applications, the large sizes may not be practical for residential use.
Residential applications include openings to patios, front doors, and interior doors such as office doors.
All sizes are custom, so everything from smaller scaled doors to a garage door-sized opening is available.
CENTER & OFF-CENTER
Center and off-center pivot locations are acceptable on the top of the frame. When the door is pivoted, a large opening remains; which allows for sizable items to pass through the framework that may be hindered with a regular terrace or French door.
The Pivot door system turns opening a door into a creative act: the doors swing around the asymmetrically located axis, creating a temporary spatial structure. This could be the reason why AluFab preferred this kind of swinging doors. With just a gentle push on the comfortable handle on the long side of the frame the door delicately glides open. The electromechanical multipoint locking system guarantees safety and security.
