Pivot doors are quickly becoming one the hottest trends in custom building. Portella has been fabricating Pivot doors for the past 10 years. We offer pivot doors in our narrow sightline steel Architect Series, as well as the contemporary MoMa Collection.
A few guidelines to consider; the minimum width of a pivot door should be 4 feet. The pivot point can be located 8 to 12 inches from the edge of the door giving a free swing clearance of 3 feet or greater. We use 6 feet wide as the maximum width of our pivot doors. We can accommodate heights up to 10 or 11 feet. Custom pull handles and thresholds that conceal the pivot system are an integral part of Portella’s pivot doors.
