Pivot Door Hinges Can Carry The Load

Pivot Door Hinges Can Carry The Load

When you think of a door hinge, you typically think of hinges that are installed on a door frame, and hold the door at two to three equidistant, centrally-located positions on the door. Pivot Door Hinges work a little bit differently.

Pivot Door Hinges are installed at the top of the door frame, as well as in the floor. Because the door is supported by the frame and the floor, there’s less stress on the door frame – meaning pivot door hinges can support much heavier doors than typical butt hinges.

Hinge Outlet offers a selection of pivot door hinges to meet your needs:

Offset Pivot Door Hinges are used for recessed doors, so the door can swing clear of the inside of the frame. Offset Pivot Door Hinges are available in multiple sizes, and typically require you to select left or right handing.

Center Hung Pivot Door Hinges are often used in retail applications. With Center Hung Pivot Door Hinges, the hinge hardware is almost completely concealed for a clean look. Center Hung Pivot Door Hinges are non-handed and most are double-acting, meaning the door can open in either direction. Most store-front doors utilize center hung pivot door hinges.

Pivot Door Hinges are also available in self-closing models. Self-closing Pivot Door Hinges are popular on restaurant kitchen doors where hands are often full, and traffic is high. Most self-closing pivot door hinges contain springs so you can adjust how hard and fast the door closes.  

Gravity Pivot Door Hinges don’t have springs, but instead utilize the weight of the door for the hinge’s closing action. While the closing action of the door cannot be adjusted on a Gravity Pivot Door Hinge, these hinges provide longer term value than spring pivot door hinges because there’s no need to replace worn out or broken springs over time.
