Pivot Door: a pivot door is a swinging door that rotates on a spindle as opposed to traditional doors that open on butt hinges affixed to a frame. Pivot doors are usually larger, and heavier than typical hinged doors.
The swing pattern of a pivot door is different than a hinged door as seen on the graphic on the left. Large pivot doors can place the pivot spindle at any location to create a traditional pivot door, a swing pivot door, or even a sliding pivot door. See applications for more information.
