Make an entrance
Fortis Pivot Doors
Looking to create that ultimate statement door that not only looks good but performs well? Look no further.
Pivot doors are hinged from the top and bottom of the door rather than the side, like traditional entrance doors. Delivering a contemporary, unique look when open.
Sizes: Pivot doors start from 1400mm wide and increase up to 2100mm wide. On the height, minimum of 2100mm up to 3m high, 4m on request - so you can make your opening feel grand & impressive. Combine with sidelights coupled to the door, finger scan technology plus smart home operation to create the ultimate entrance.
With all colour options available + wood effects & Dekton finishes for that "WOW" finish - Fortis has a door for you.
The Pivot doors have just been added to the door designer and there's 5 to choose from either in our Solid Doors range or fully glazed.
Up to 2100mm wide (min width 1400mm)
What you need to know about a Pivot door:
Before purchasing a pivot door, it’s important to make sure you understand as much as possible about the suitability of this door type for your property.
The main benefit of a pivot door is the stylish design element of how they open.
Pivot doors literally hinge from the bottom and top of a door instead of on the side and offer a very contemporary look.
In the past, pivot hinges were used for bigger doors. However, Fortis Aluminium can make hinged doors up to 1400mm wide on our roll band hinges which are heavy duty.
So your choice of a pivot or hinged door will be partly determined by the desired aesthetic for your entrance way. However, a pivot opening comes with a few more considerations than a hinged door might.
Will you lose space in the walkthrough area?
Yes, the pivot hinge needs to be placed at least 300mm from the edge of the door (depending on the width of the door).
