About Pivot Doors Video

There are many features that make the Glenview Doors pivot door collection special and better than Pivot doors offered by other manufacturers.

First and foremost, unlike most pivot doors, our doors have incredible insulating technologies. Our Pivot slab comes in unprecedented three and a half inches of thickness, made possible by our unique Euro Technology, dramatically improves stability and insulation and allows us to provide warranty against warping and or cracking.

This increased thickness of 3-1/2” of our Pivot slab also allows us to offer our unique double rabbeted jamb construction, which dramatically reduces the gap between the slab and the jamb, further improving the door’s insulation. Moreover, we even install additional insulation at the top and bottom of our pivot doors, allowing for an even better control of airflow.

To top it all off, our multi-point lock system, which, as the name suggests, places locks at multiple points on the door rather than just on one, provides stronger security, greater resistance to warping and, as always, increased insulation.

With a Glenview Doors Pivot Door, you get all the benefits of a pivot door without having to worry about the typical issues that pivot doors face. We have taken all possible measures to ensure that our doors will sustain their long-lasting effectiveness and beauty for many years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about Pivot Front 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.
