Doors swing all sorts of ways, but there are only a handful of hinges you can use when you want a door to swing on a single point or axis. You have most likely seen door pivot hinges used in revolving doors or shower doors, but they can also be used in all sorts of applications. Whether you are in the middle of a bathroom remodel or you simply want to upgrade the hardware in your home, HardwareSource offers an extensive selection of pivot door hardware to choose from. Narrow your search by weight rating, action, finish group, base material, or manufacturer using our filters!
A pivot hinge is typically unique to doors that are heavy or doors that require special installation. Rack and pinion pivot sets, for example, are designed to walk the door away from the jamb and toward the center of the opening so that it may swing open. This mechanism allows a fascia on the door front that won't bind with the jamb as the door is opened. There are two main types of pivot hinges: offset and center-hung. As you can probably guess, an offset pivot hinge is a type of hinge that is offset from the face of the door while a center-hung hinge is a type of hinge that is installed at the center of the door thickness on single-acting or double-acting doors.
We offer rack and pinion pivot sets for standard and heavy-duty applications. We also offer a variety of spring pivot door hinges that allow doors to open 90 degrees (single-acting) or 180 degrees (double-acting). Having a spring mechanism allows the pivot door hardware to return the door back to its closed position.
There are many benefits of choosing pivot door hinges for your home, most importantly the fact that they are typically attached at the far corners of the door, creating a frameless view and streamlined appearance. What's more, door pivot hinges are mounted from floor to ceiling, which reduces the cost of glass fabrication and carries the weight at the bottom of the door to result in a stable and structurally sound installation.
In addition to pivot hinges for interior doors, we also offer an array of fittings and accessories to help make any installation a breeze. Here, you can shop for jamb brackets, concealed door closers, pivot bases, cement cases for Rixson hinges, and so much more. Our hardware experts are also standing by to help in any way we can.
