Pivot Door Potential
The door industry represents a multi-billion-dollar service that caters to all sorts of clients from moderately-priced to highly customized architectural doors. Currently pivot doors only account for a small fraction of sales because they are high weight, the hardware, installation and maintenance over time is expensive.
If the obstacles of high-price and other obstacles could be overcome, high-end pivot doors could be more affordable and achieve high growth potential amongst homeowners.
Imagine if the Top 100 Door Manufacturers were to embrace the new technology that would allow them to make affordable pivot door technology available to the world. What kind of impact would that have on the door making industry?
