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.

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).
