Buying Helps

Below are a number of explanations to help in determining what options you will choose from the drop down menus.
For a comprehensive approach to ordering a pivot door, please refer to our Buying Guide, which provides a step-by-step guide to the process of selecting your pivot-hung entryway.

Net Frame Size

Choosing a Door Size

Because each door we make is sized specifically for the project, you are not restricted to any standard sizes.

Measurements to Know

When sizing the door you will need to consider two principle measurements, rough opening and frame size. See the image below for reference.

Casing included for illustration purposes only, not included in purchase price

Rough Opening

The rough opening is the distance from stud to stud for framing purposes. We advise that you build a rough opening that is ½ in. wider and 1/2 in. taller than the total door unit. We find that this allows for sufficient shimming and adjustments during installation.

Net Frame Size: Width and Height

This is the size of the actual door jamb. When determining the net frame size you want to put in a number that is at least a half inch less than the rough opening size to allow room to square and level the door. For example, for a rough opening 48 in., order a net frame size of 47 1/2 in.

Wood Type

Choosing a Wood Species...

We offer a range of wood species to go standard with our doors. If you would like something other than what we have, in most cases we can source other wood types that are not listed below, though prices will vary.

As you decide which wood you'll choose, the most important factor is how the wood species goes with the overall design of the door and your project. If you have specific questions about what wood to choose that are not answered here, feel free to reach out to us.

Our Standard Selection

images of different wood types

Mahogany (Sapele)
This exotic reddish-brown wood is desired for its rarity, strength, and beauty. It is very durable, and resists swelling and warping, making it ideal for marine uses and high moisture areas.

Red Oak
Oak wood is strong, durable, and resistant to moisture. It is a heavy wood and finishes well. Because of its hardness, it has a good density with a medium to course texture.

White Oak
Chosen for its noticeable grain variations and light color, White Oak can handle a moderate range of weather conditions. Known for its high strength properties and durability, its moisture movement is medium and it has a good density with a medium to course texture.

Walnut wood is strong, hard, and exceptionally durable, without being excessively heavy. It is straight-grained in the trunk of the tree, but possesses a wavy grain in wood found closer to the roots. Walnut wood finishes beautifully, holding paint and stain exceptionally well, and is resistant to shrinking and warping.

Grown in the eastern half of the United States, Cherry was often used in original colonial American furniture-making. Cherry wood is moderately hard, strong, and close-grained with a high resistance to warping. Its light to reddish brown color deepens with age and exposure to sunlight.

Knotty Alder
Alder is almost white when freshly cut but quickly changes on exposure to air to light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. The wood is fairly straight grained with a uniform texture. Alder is a relatively soft hardwood of medium density that has low bending strength, shock resistance and stiffness.

Jamb Depth

Jamb depth depends on the thickness of the walls into which the door unit will be placed. Most walls are studded out with 2x4’s or 2x6’s, and so, our most common jamb depths are 4 5/8 in. and 6 5/8 in., respectively. Usually the jamb is flush with the interior and exterior wall covering, with the seam covered by casing.

We have standard jamb depths of

4 5/8 in.

5 1/4 in.

5 1/2 in.

6 5/8 in.

7 1/2 in.

If you wish for us to provide a jamb depth different from one of our standard options, please contact us.

Window Placement

If you choose a door style with a window, you have the option to place the window on the handle side or on the pivot side.

Threshold Color

You may choose between two different finishes for the aluminum threshold cover plate: black or grey.

Black (Dark Bronze Anodized)

Grey (Mill Finish Aluminum)

Threshold Type

You can choose from two standard threshold configurations, depending upon your project specifications: type 1 or type 2. sideview drawings showing details for pivot door threshold

If there is any type of wood covering on the interior of the house, you will need a type 2. The type 2 threshold has a 90 degree angle on the interior facing side for the wood covering to butt up against.

If the exterior floor is the same level as the interior floor, you will need a type 1 threshold. More commonly, though, the exterior floor is lower than the interior floor and you will need a type 2 threshold.

Deadbolt and Handleset Prep

Single and Double Bore
We will pre-drill the door for a handle with 2 3/8 in. or 2 3/4 in. backset. Standard bore diameter is 2 1/8 in. The term "backset" refers to the distance from the edge of the door to the center of the bore hole. See the diagram below for more details.

We can mortise the door for many entry lock sets. Please contact us directly to configure your specific requirements.

If you wish for us to prep for a handle you purchase from another vendor, you will need to provide us with the specifications for the handle or lockset so we can properly prep. Alternatively, you may decide that you want to wait and have a local carpenter prep the for the door handle. In that case, you do not need to provide us with the hardware specifications.

Standard Handle Prep

NOTE: All jamb strikes are prepped on-site to ensure proper alignment after installation and any necessary adjustments. 

Swing Configuration

When you order your pivot-hung entryway, you have options when it comes to how the door will swing. Though 99% of the time, you will want a door that swings into the interior (in-swing), we are set up to build jambs where the door swings out to the exterior (pushing your visitors out of the pathway of your tremendous door).

However, when it comes to right-hand or left-hand swing, the layout of your installation site will determine the swing configuration. To determine if the door is left-hand or right-hand in-swing, imagine you are looking at the door from the street. If the pivot point is on the left side, it is a left-hand in-swing. If the pivot point is on the right-hand side, the door is a right-hand in-swing.

Pivot Placement

The pivot placement is the distance the pivot pin will be placed away from the vertical edge of the rough opening. Generally speaking, we suggest placing the pivot over one quarter of the distance of the door width. We find that this presents a solid aesthetic for most door dimensions. See table below for suggested pivot placements.

If your rough opening is 48” and you choose a 9” pivot placement, the door will roughly have a 37” pass through opening. You want to ensure you leave at least a 36” opening. (Rough opening width - pivot placement measurement - 4 in. for jamb = a number greater than 36). See picture for details or contact us for clarification.

Free-swing Pivot Hinge

Our standard pivot hardware is a durable, specially engineered free-swing pivot hinge. This pivot hardware works for a wide range of doors, from small to very large. No matter the door size, the free-swing pivot hinge allows for effortless door operation. The hardware incorporates sets of ball-bearings for smooth, long-lasting performance. The door swings freely around the pivot point. There are no springs or tension pulling the door closed.

Closer, Dorma BTS/80

In commercial applications and in rare residential applications, we install a bottom closer. The bottom closer creates constant tension on the door’s swing to pull the door into the closed position. This means one must hold the door in order to keep it open. With a closer the door will not rest in an open position unless the hold-open feature is activated, which holds the door open at a 100° angle.

Standard 6 Weeks to Ship

Your door leaves the shop six weeks from order confirmation. Allow additional time* for freight delivery. See map below for approximate transit times to your region.

Glass Sidelight

In many cases, customers wish to purchase sidelights for their door units. We build sidelights directly into the door unit, so the jamb and sidelights connect seamlessly. All you need to do is tell us what kind of sidelights you want, what size they should be and what kind of glass you want.

Glass Sidelight Placement on Door

You can choose between the following sidelight configurations:

- Right Sidelight

- Left Sidelight

- Transom light

- Double Sidelight

- Left Sidelight with Transom

- Right Sidelight with Transom

- Double Sidelight with Transom

Sidelight placement is specified with reference to the exterior view. If you want a 12" sidelight that is on the right side when viewed from the exterior, click on the dropdown options under "Right Sidelight" and select the option: 12" right sidelight. If you want a double sidelight, simply a size under both the the Right Sidelight and Left Sidelight options. Double sidelights can be of different sizes.

Sidelights can be placed on the left or right side of the pivot door.

Net Sidelight Size

This is the size of the actual Sidelight jamb. When inputting the net frame size you want to put in a number that is at least a half inch less than the rough opening size to allow room to square and level the unit. The door will be built with the sidelight attached so be sure to input the height of the door and the height of the sidelight the same. Example: 48" X 98" door with a 18" X 98" sidelight will get you a door and sidelight combo that measures 66" X 98" (the rough opening size should be somewhere around 66 1/2" X 98 1/2").

To order sidelights, add the net dimension of the sidelight to the net frame dimension of the pivot door; the section will arrive as one unit based on the total measurements.
