Large Pivot Doors can be made out of any flat building material. This includes materials that would, ordinarily, be impossible to make a hinge door out of due to the weight. The design of the pivoting hardware can accommodate a pivoting entry door that is many times heavier than any hinge door.

Problems With Heavy Pivot Doors
Although large pivot doors can span from the floor to the ceiling, there is an obvious challenge to overcome if you want to own a heavy pivot door: the large size and heavy weight can create problems over time that can cause the need for routine maintenance to overcome the issue that compromise the pivot door or the structure it is placed in.
Creating Light Pivot Doors
One way to optimize large pivot doors for weight is to use a strong, lightweight, substructure that will not compromise the structure of the pivot door. SingCore’s large pivot door substrate is perfectly designed for large pivot doors. They sport additional features besides creating a solid composite door that weighs a fraction of an otherwise solid door. Modern pivot doors with patented SingCore inside are stronger than steel, around 50% lighter than traditional building materials, and the torsion box structured grids are packed with rigid insulation for sound deadening capabilities. Using SingCore inside your pivot door can transform any heavy pivot door into a lightweight pivot door.
Warping is the main problem that is associated with large pivot doors- or any oversized doors, for that matter. This is especially true if the doors are made using natural words, which are elegant when installed, but tend to move depending on variances in heat, moisture, and other extreme environmental conditions.
Until now there has not been a way around the natural characteristics of wood grain to bend, warp, cup, or twist. But with SingCore’s 50 year warp-free guarantee, modern large pivot doors can be guaranteed to remain structurally sound and warp-free for up to 50 years. That’s 50 years of high precision, high performance, low maintenance enjoyment of your breathtaking large pivot door.”
