They are often placed inside the home as entrance doors and pivot because of their heavy weight which hinges cannot withstand. A pivot door often has a protective archway which keeps it partially shielded from sun and rain. Where exterior pivot doors are installed, a weather bar can and should be installed for extra protection.
Looking for a door that adds class to your home? Pivot doors come in a variety of styles. Designer pivot doors have been artistically carved out to resemble elegant patterns. On the other hand, clear or frosted glass can add a smart touch to wooden pivot doors—especially if a nice handle is added. But if you struggle to find the perfect door, remember that Van Acht can make up custom doors that suit your exact vision.

Simple, clean lines, open spaces and natural light characterise Van Acht’s panel & semi-panel pivot doors. At Van Acht we’re as passionate about modern design as you are. It’s why you’ll find these door designs will match your contemporary home or apartment, as well your lifestyle.
Marine Ply Panel Pivot Doors
Marine-Ply is highly resistant to fungal attacks and can withstand extended exposure to moisture. Marine Ply is environmentally
friendly due to its nature as carbon sink and its allowance for the optimisation of wood.
Meranti has relatively good outdoor durability and suitable for infrequent or partial exposure to the elements. Meranti doors requires an over-hang/canopy of at least 500mm to protect them against direct sunlight and rain. All exterior and semi-exterior doors should be fitted with a weather bar (sold separately).
Glass panel doors achieve two important results for your home. First, they allow natural light to enter into a foyer or room. Second, they create an atmosphere of space that enhances your mood and that of your guests.
