What are the benefits of pivot doors?


The perfect stylish addition

A pivot door system is the perfect way to update your home and bring style to your space, allowing you to move between open and closed plan at your convenience. If you’re looking to add some modernisation to your space upgrading your doors to a pivot door system is the ideal solution.

Pivot doors are a popular aspect of many modern and high-end homes for good reason, but you don’t need to own a home worthy of Grand Designs to enjoy them.

Space saving

Pivot doors need much less clearance space than regular doors as they pivot rather than swing open, so they fold against the wall rather than swinging into a space. Likewise, this also means they do not require a frame, providing you with a space-saving minimalistic door.

Many of us are now appreciating a clean, open and less cluttered space, which a pivot door system offers in droves. Enjoy an open, welcoming space that flows beautifully but with the flexibility to separate spaces when you need to.

Privacy when you need it

Many of us appreciate an open plan space, but there may be times when we want to enjoy some privacy or section off space – perhaps to work, entertain or just enjoy some peace and quiet! Thankfully pivot doors allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds by allowing you to flexibly enjoy an open or closed space.

Unlike a normal hinged door, a pivot door opens on its pivot against the wall, and depending on its width, this can help open out an entire room – almost creating a moveable wall (like a secret door!).

With many of us now working from home, this means you can create a private working space to take calls and concentrate and open this out into living space when work is over – allowing you to create that perfect separation between home life and work life.

No more slamming doors!

Whether it’s moody teenagers (or toddlers) or a gust of wind, slamming doors are a pet hate of many. Thanks to pivot doors, these are a thing of the past thanks to a soft close capability so they will never slam shut – providing peace and safety for all.

Their hold open capability means they can stay open, so you never have to worry about a door slamming or any small fingers getting caught.
