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.
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
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.
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 is an Aluminum Shield in Front Door?
Aluminum Shields are metallic slabs that are layered on the outside of your front entry door. They are made of incredibly durable, aluminum that has the look, feel, and weight of a modern front door. Beyond just aesthetics, Aluminum Shields do exactly what the name implies: protect your door from the elements. Whether it is rain, wind, or sun, aluminum shields will make your door almost impervious to the weather.
Why Aluminum Clad or shouldn’t I just get a wood door?
Our front entry wood doors are weather-resistant while maintaining that classic wood aesthetic, so why opt for aluminum shield doors?
Due to our modern European technology, our standard wood entry doors are very weather resistant but wood will still have a small amount of deterioration because of its own nature. Aluminum shield doors are the perfect solution to those who would like a maintenance-free door with that final guarantee against deterioration.
But beyond the practical benefits, aluminum shield doors offer a high-end, metallic look that maintains that high quality feel. Opting for aluminum instead of wood will add a modern and sleek touch that complements several architectural styles.
How are the Aluminum Shield Doors Different from Aluminum Clad Doors?
Our aluminum shield doors are made using modern European technology that few American brands can match. The shield is placed on the front of the door to act as a shield against the elements (as the name implies). Our aluminum shield front entry doors differ from many basic aluminum clad doors because the shield never actually touches the wood veneer. This would interfere with vapor diffusion which could become a problem in less refined aluminum clad doors. Our aluminum shield doors are a simple concept with an intricate design.
