Lightweight High Strength Eco Friendly Metal Pivot Doors

Pivot Door Line DrawingLightweight High Strength Eco Friendly Metal Pivot Doors

When professionals seek out extraordinary, unique and/or oversized modern steel doors the most conscientious purveyors settle on a Sing Core metal pivot door.

While exquisitely masterful in their design, modern metal pivot doors present many challenges.  The first challenge to overcome is that of excess weight. Due to the size of the door – if it is constructed simply of metal – the door is just not practical due to its excessive weight.

Contemporary modern steel doors are available in many colorsWhat you want is an

Extraordinary metal pivot door with a unique, bold and striking appearance

(see samples of contemporary metal pivot door finishes to the right…)

That has these characteristics:

  • Lightweight
  • High strength
  • Eco-friendly
  • Affordable

To combat this challenge door manufacturers seek out composite materials to incorporate into the design of the metal pivot door to deal with the heaviness of the door that causes a strain on the structural integrity of the frame, the hardware and project overall.

Solid steel pivot doors, while impressive, are just not practical, yet engineers have found ways to circumvent the obstacles in an effort to retain the appearance of being a solid steel pivot door.

Modern steel pivot door finish exampleThe next challenge to overcome is that of strength. By compromising the metal pivot door’s integrity by not being constructed of solid metal, other cores are considered to reduce the weight of the metal pivot door.

Normal alterations include, using a lesser-strength metal core. Using a metal tube substrate or honeycomb core will match the structure of the metal door, but compromises the overall strength, while resulting in a metal pivot door that is still extremely overweight.

Engineers in search of a more lightweight solution, then consider composite materials to fill the core of your metal pivot door. These include natural solutions, like wood, or manufactured solutions, like foam. While wood products are an option, if solid, are still too heavy to result in a lighter weight solution, and still cannot compare to the strength of a solid steel door. And though foam is lightweight, it simply has no structural integrity and fails the test of strength altogether. Also, over time, these core components tend to lose their integrity, and rarely (if ever) produce an end product that is true flat.

Another consideration is that of excessive energy and harm to the environment expended in the creation of your metal pivot door. The process of creating a metal pivot door with metal interior components requires a lot of wasted energy consumption and highly-skilled laborers (welders) that not only makes the door non-eco-friendly, but results in a very expensive end product.
