Pivot Front Door

Pivot front doors are more impressive when they are stylishly finished, but even more impressive than the exterior material used, the size of the metal pivot door is even more important. The emphasis on being large and oversized plays an important role in the first impression of anyone viewing a large pivot door the first time you lay eyes on the project.

The most significant highly memorable feature of any structure is the visual impact of a large, oversized pivot door. In fact, the bigger, the better. The height, the width and the thickness of your pivot front door makes all the difference.

Metal Pivot Door Detail

The detail of the metal pivot door is invaluable, and every detail will contribute to the success or failure of your pivot front door. A large metal pivot door, while it is very impressive, does pose a number of problems associated with such a large monolithic structure. The first hurdle is in the managing of the weight of a large metal pivot door. To make it out of solid metal, is generally not practical, because the sheer weight of the large pivot door will create problems for the pivot door hardware as well as the frame and structure surrounding the big metal pivot door. The answer lies in Sing Core’s ability to build a

Lightweight Metal Pivot Door

Reducing the weight of your metal pivot door significantly reduces the cost of the pivot door hardware (as it is calculated based on the weight of the door) which can cost many times the cost of the pivot door itself. This also reduces the cost of shipping, handling and installing an otherwise heavy pivot door. While there are other options for dealing with the issue of weight of a particular pivot door, none are more dimensionally stable or

High Strength Metal Pivot Door

Sing Core is the only method of creating a lightweight, high strength metal pivot door. The strength is achieved by starting with a patented torsion box substructure where the otherwise empty boxes are filled with rigid insulation and sandwiched between two sheets of plywood to provide a solid composite structural core which delivers unparalleled warp resistance and strength (660 PSI). Not only are these metal pivot doors lightweight and incredibly strong, they are the only metal doors that can come with a

50 Year Warp-free Guarantee

That’s right. Your professional Sing metal pivot door can be lightweight, high strength and guaranteed not to warp- bend, twist of otherwise fail for 50 years, including a full structure warranty against any other potential failure.

Metal Pivot Entry Doors

Your metal pivot entry door caries along with it a great deal of responsibility, which makes it a security door, either as an intentional specification, or implied as a security barrier. So, it is imperative that your pivot entry doors are strong enough to ward off security compromises as well as being fully

Insulated Metal Pivot Doors

Every Sing metal pivot door is fully insulated to deliver the best climate control and sound deadening capabilities. This insulation is important because in most, if not all cases, your pivot entry door separates two extremes, one being the exterior surface area facing the elements as in the case of an exterior pivot front door, while the other side faces the structure’s interior, which could be vastly different, especially in terms of extreme weather conditions.

Pivot Door Systems

Sing Core helps to support your favorite millwork or pivot door company to create the best pivot door systems available in the world today. Your large architectural pivot door is likely one of the most striking and important features leaving a lasting impression on visitors.

As we all know, as impressive as it is, your pivot door is going to present challenges if it is a pivot hinge door over 7 ft. tall. There are factors facing architects and designers who desire to incorporate such a feature into a breathtaking structure.

Here are some of the challenges facing designers of your architectural pivot door:

Problem: Large Pivot Doors

The bigger the pivot door, the more challenges face designers, builders, and installers of large pivot doors. The size of your pivot door creates a challenge in the mere handling of the door. If your architectural pivot door is significantly large (of course, the larger it is, the more impressive it is) the size of it makes it difficult to transport between various stages of the pivot door build, from base manufacture, to millwork, to job site and installation. Each of these phases requires handling of the door, which can take many people and may include the use of heavy equipment for maneuvering the large pivot door.

Solution: Large Pivot Doors

Sing Core teams up with only the best millworks, custom door manufacturers and pivot door companies to provide the best Eco-friendly warp-free pivot door systems in the world, and each custom pivot door is proudly made in the USA. Even if your pivot door system requires a very large pivoting door, such as 40 ft. tall, Sing Core has the solution for any pivot door sizes.

Problem: Heavy Pivot Doors

Big pivot doors means you’re dealing with a big pivot door slab of material which is extremely heavy in weight. These heavy pivot doors are tough to handle by hand, requiring heavy equipment to move them around through the various stages of creation and throughout the installation process.

Solution: Lightweight Pivot Doors

Pivot Doors with Sing Core inside weigh a fraction the weight of other solid core pivoting doors. Significantly lighter weight pivot doors, even metal pivot doors, translates to huge cost savings in terms of manufacturing, transportation and long term maintenance costs over time. The warp-free nature of guaranteed professional Sing pivot doors greatly reduces pivot door maintenance costs, making your pivot doors systems more cost-efficient and sustainable.

Problem: Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Also note the weight of the large pivot door determines the pivot door hardware that will be utilized in the pivot door systems. Heavy pivot door means heavy duty pivot door hardware. The heavier the door, the more expensive the heavy duty pivot door hardware, which can come with an enormous price tag that can exceed the cost of the pivot door itself. In heavy pivot door systems, the hardware can easily be the most expensive portion of the entire system.

Solution: Eliminate Heavy Duty Pivot Door Hardware

Since the weight of your large pivot door determines the gauge of the pivot door hardware incorporated in pivot doors systems, reducing the weight significantly results in being able to utilize low cost hardware, greatly reducing the overall cost of the pivot door system, thanks to having Sing Core inside your pivot door(s).

Problem: Heavy Pivot Door Maintenance

Large pivot doors do impose heavy maintenance costs over time if they are used very much, due to stress of the heavy pivot door on the hardware, structure and further compromising the pivot door seal because of the pivot door material’s tendency to move. This translates to regular maintenance being required to maintain, repair or replace the supporting structure, frame, hardware and pivot door as necessary to achieve adequate performance expectations.

Solution: Little or No Pivot Door Maintenance

By having your custom pivot doors built with Sing Core inside, you can have nearly maintenance-free enjoyment of your exterior pivot door for 50 years. Of course, you will still need normal routine maintenance of the door’s finish, but you can rest assured that you can avoid having the service life of your pivot door interrupted by experiencing undue stress to hardware, structure or suffering the disappointment of a warping pivot door.

Problem: Warping Pivot Doors

Exterior pivot doors are more problematic than interior doors for their tendency to warp by having to separate two different spaces which could (and more often than not do) have quite different environments on either side of the door. This is the main cause of warping pivot doors, which can compromise the seal of the exterior pivot door and add stress to the existing structure and hardware.

Solution: Warp-free Pivot Doors

Sing Core provides the only known solution for warp-free pivot doors of any size. The warp-free true flat engineers and technicians at Sing Core help to design and build your custom door in concert with architectural specification to produce a professional large pivot door which can be guaranteed to offer non-warping performance for 50 years. No other Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength door can have such a guarantee, unless it has patented Sing Core inside.

Problem: Replacement Pivot Doors

Replacement pivot doors, either at the outset (in the design phase) or as the pivot door begin to fail, is the unfortunate story that faces many exterior pivot door owners and/or users and purveyors of various pivot doors systems. Some care is taken in the replacement of pivot doors to find a pivot door solution which is less likely to fail, or provide some degree of reduction in ongoing pivot door maintenance.

Solution: Replacement Pivot Doors

The answer is not found in any millwork, pivot door company, or pivot door hardware company. The answer to the problems and challenges is found inside the door. Doors made with “Sing Core inside,” are lightweight, high strength, high precision, and can be guaranteed to warp, bend, twist or otherwise fail for 50 years.

Pivot door systems featuring pivot entry doors with Sing Core inside are the number one replacement pivot doors, especially in large pivot front door applications.

Pivot Hinges for Doors

Making its way into modern architectural designs across the USA and throughout the world abroad, pivot hinge doors are marking their territory, especially when the client or homeowner desires to make an impact at first sight of the dwelling’s pivot front door. Not to be only dominating the upscale housing market, high end commercial establishments are also seeking out a large, unique pivot hinge door to welcome their clientele.

The pivot hinge door has two pivoting points where the pivot hinge is located. One on top of the pivot door, and one on the bottom of the pivot door. The center pivot door (indicating the center hung pivot hinge’s location in the door) is by far the most traditional location of the pivot door’s pivoting hardware, thought the current trend is to feature an offset door pivot hinge.

In the case of the offset pivot door, the pivot hardware is located to the left or right of center, or in an extreme edge pivot door the door pivot hinge is located closer to the outside edge of the door. This not only offers a unique visual impact of having an offset pivot door, there is also the advantage of having a wider opening when the door is in its opened position. With the offset door pivot hinge, the pivot door is not limited to one half of the pivot door’s frame, which provides more open access when using pivot hinges for doors that are offset (to one side of the center of the pivot door, or the other).

There is no doubt the pivot hinge doors is staking its claim on the front facing home as a pivot front door. The responsibility of the pivot front door is greatly escalated, as an exterior door one side of the pivot front door faces the elements, while the other side of the pivot door faces the home’s interior. This is asking for door trouble from the get-go, as front doors, especially for wooden pivot doors, due to their tendency to warp, bend or twist under these extreme circumstances.

That means you don’t have to worry about you’re your door’s tendency to bend, twist cup or otherwise fail, including a full structural guarantee for 50 years. No other sustainable, Eco-friendly, lightweight, high strength door can be backed with such an amazing guarantee.

Pivot doors prices can be very expensive doe to the nature of the doors to warp, and many steps have been taken in the past to keep these pivot doors straight, but at what cost? Adding an interior frame that is resistant to warp, like aluminum or steel may well keep the pivot door from warping but the pivot door then becomes very heavy, and heavy pivot doors mean heavy duty pivot door hardware.

When you’re staring a pivot hinge heavy duty in nature, you’re facing a large ticket item, as heavy duty pivot hinges can be very expensive indeed. If a pivot door is heavy, it is not unusual for the pivoting hardware to be many times the cost of the pivot door itself.

Think of all the savings which may be realized by having your pivot door built with Sing Core inside. You will save in shipping and transport, as well as installation, hardware and continued maintenance over time, because you have a lightweight Sing pivot door, without having to compromise in precision or high performance.

Helping your favorite pivot door company create warp free wooden pivot doors of any size ~ guaranteed

Pivot Entry Doors | Warp and Structure

First of all, most of the most impressive architectural pivot entry door features natural wood. It doesn’t take much effort to imagine what the problems might be for a natural substance, like wood. The very nature of the grain, which add to the elegance and beauty of any pivot entry door, is the problem, especially for exterior pivot doors. While natural wood grain is so very attractive, it is natural and tends to warp, bend and twist due to changes in the environment. Even if the exterior pivot door is not made of wood, the structural integrity may fail, especially if the door is over 8 ft. tall and/or 4 ft. wide.

Pivot Entry Doors | Weight and Pivot Door Hardware

Secondly, a large pivot entry door is going to be very heavy in weight, which is expected with any door of significant height, width and thickness. Current trends to an increase of pivot entry door sizes pushes the physical limits of the capabilities of any standard pivot door company or their ability to accommodate pivot door sizes that are over 8 ft. tall. Additionally, the weight of these large pivot doors determine the type, style, and size of the accommodating pivot door hardware required. Heavy duty pivot door hardware appropriately matched can cost many times the cost of the pivot entry door, just for the pivot door hinges. Heavy large pivot entry doors also are problematic to ship to and handle at the job site, adding extra charges to installation costs.

Pivot Entry Doors | Ongoing Maintenance Costs

With the continued use of heavier large entry pivot doors over time, the regular articulation of the pivoting door causes extra stress and strain on the pivot door hardware, frame and structure as it is used. In addition to regular maintenance of the exterior pivot door’s tendency to move (warp, bend, twist or cup) other maintenance costs include repairing and/or replacement of pivot door hardware, framing and the building’s structure.

Pivot Entry Doors | Replacement Doors

Large Pivot Doors

21 ft. tall large pivot door

There’s no doubt about the growth in the pivot door market. Just a few years ago pivot doors were the exception to the rule, today more and more people want to make an impact statement by featuring a pivot front door, and nothing packs more curb appeal than large pivot doors, leaving an everlasting impression. In fact, the bigger the pivot door, the better.

You know what having a large pivot door means? You got it = large prices, on everything. Everything is more expensive when you’re dealing with a large pivot door. Think about it… Large pivot doors are large and thick, that means they’re cumbersome and they’re hard to manage on the job site, sometimes requiring extra heavy equipment just to move them about the site. Of course, they are heavy, which means transportation is going to be expensive, as well as the heavy duty pivot door hinges (also expensive) because the weight of the large pivot door determines which hardware is needed to support the extra weight.

The extra weight can be a problem if it is being used regularly, causing extra strain on both the hardware and the structure itself; resulting in costly maintenance and repairs to the pivot door and the structure as well over time.

But wait, there’s more: Since everyone wants to have a large pivot front door that means one side of the door faces the structure’s interior while the other side is exposed to the elements, and you know what that means? You got that right: Warped doors! When is a door not a door? When it’s so warped you can’t secure it. There you go = more costly repairs.

What If…

What if one type of large pivot door could overcome all the hassles associated with other large pivot doors. I mean, if the laws of physics could be suspended for a moment, and you could have a large pivot door any way that you wanted it, what would that large pivot door look like?

Large warp-free wooden architectural pivot door w/50 year guarantee

Pivot Door Size

To start, size would not be an issue. You could have any size large pivot door in any thickness you wanted, without having to make a zillion calls to find anyone who would undertake such a challenge.

Pivot Door Options

You would want to be able to specify any material to have the large pivot door manufactured out of, and it wouldn’t matter if it was concrete, natural and/or exotic wood, including any metal from aluminum to hot rolled steel, or any other available flat building material. You could have whatever you wanted.

Lightweight Pivot Doors

If you could have it any way you wanted it, you would have this large pivot door weigh a fraction of any other pivot door, so that you could reduce transportation, installation and hardware costs at the get-go, as well as having less expense over time, because the lighter weight means less stress and strain on hardware and structure, and less maintenance costs.

High Strength Pivot Doors

If the large pivot door is going to be lightweight, we do not want it to be wimpy. I want to know my family is safe a secure from forced entry, and if someone tries to kick in the pivot door, I want them to break their leg. And if I accidentally drive a pair of forklift forks through it, I want to know that it’s strong enough to take the impact without compromising the pivot door, and can easily be repaired (without having to remove the large pivot door).

Might as well throw in the idea of having a large pivot door with superior warp resistance; how warp resistant would you want? Okay, let’s say it. We want a door that does not warp, period, even if it is used as an exterior-facing pivot front door.

Pivot Door Insulation

Just for fun, we might like to throw in the idea of having a large pivot door that is well insulated to provide more safety and security from sound deadening and energy savings to superior climate control.

Customizable Pivot Doors

I’d want to be able to customize the large pivot door any way I wanted to, including custom lite cutouts in any shape and style I wanted (not being limited to having to pick from a few options). I want it the way I want it. Can we do that?

You Can Have It All

You can have all this and more! What? Surely you jest. Nope, I am being totally honest with you. You can have everything you could imagine, like unlimited size restrictions for your large pivot doors, made out of any flat building material available, weighing in at a fraction the weight of other solid core pivot doors, yet stronger than steel pound for pound and guaranteed not to warp, bend, twist of fail structurally for a full 50 years.

Oh, and you can have all the insulation you want for sound dampening and saving energy, as well as custom lite cutouts, where you want, in any shape you like.

Now, that is the perfect large pivot door

The most exciting thing about all this, is that it is not just a fantasy, but Sing Core does actually help the best millworks and door companies to supply their customers with the very best large pivot doors available in the world today.

How is it possible?

The large pivot door technology was birthed from the imagination of inventor, Peter Sing, whose next generation reinforced torsion box design enabled him to be able to accomplish all these feats, outperforming other aerospace-inspired lightweight core materials (rated at 10 to 110 PSI), while Sing’s core clocks in at 660+ PSI. And if you want a high precision pivot door (which is why you see Sing’s products featured from beneath the sea [US Navy] to outer space [NASA]), very few materials can be made so high precision (+/- .006 in.).

With all these features and benefits, who wouldn’t want a large pivot door with Sing Core inside?

How Can I Get A Sing Large Pivot Door?

Here’s the tricky part, and I will lend you a hand, hopefully making it easy for you to get a Sing large pivot door. It’s tricky because Sing Core does not make the doors themselves, they only supply the millworks and custom pivot door manufacturers with the raw materials they need to create these large pivot doors that are anything short of amazing. And that’s the secret.

All you have to do is to go to your favorite local millwork or custom pivot door manufacturer and tell them what kind of pivot door you want, and be sure to say, “I want Sing Core inside.” It’s as easy as that. While Sing Core does not build or finish doors, they do supply the best door makers with the best material available to create the best pivot doors ever manufactured in the United States of America. And, yes, Sing Core is proudly made in the USA.
